shoes that work (no. 6 clog boots)



i'm so happy with my new no. 6 boots. i'm glad i went with the dark brown, it's dark enough to go with everything in my closet. the 40s seem to fit perfectly, although only time will tell. so far, i think this has been my most successful shoe purchase in since my frye paige riding boots.

Gorgeous boots -- perfect outfit!

Catherine said...

Oh, so fantastic. I adore them! Is that a S&S or Mociun dress?

Stephanie said...

Yay! I am so glad that they worked out, after the disappointing repettos and the wretched Rachel Comeys!

They look great. Now I need a pair.

those are adorable; they work perfectly with your outfit...I'll have to admit I was a bit skeptical about the no. 6 boots, but they really look fantastic when put into action...and that's probably my favorite mociun print of all time...utter perfection!

You look marvelous(or mahvelous)!

those are gorgeous, i'm thinking of getting a pair. what size do you normally wear? i saw they recommend you size up. i wear a 7, but almost always wear 38 and not 37, so i wonder if would be a 39... also was concerned the heel is too high (heels are not a good idea for me either), but they don't look too high on you.

Katie said...

Yes, you deserve a pair of shoes that just work, straight out of the box! They look great....

They look great--I didn't like them at all when you first posted them, but they look wonderful on you. I love the outfit too. Is the dress APC?

erica said...

the dress is by mociun, and i think the boots look much better worn than in the photos, too!

melissa-
i think that the sizing conversion is 7=37+1 size up=38. i'm an 8.5. they recommend sizing 1.5 up (whole sizes only) for a half size, so 38.5+1.5=40. if you're thinking of ordering, you should email them.

they're surprisingly quiet for clogs, i was expecting them to be much noisier. i still wish the Rachel Comey Penpals weren't so narrow, but i like the look of the no. 6s for my wardrobe.

Totally coveting them...

Hi, I know this is about 6 months later, but I was wondering if you could tell me how comfortable these boots are and if they get slippery in wet weather. Thanks!

erica said...

not slippery at all in the rain, and so comfortable that i can wear them for 7 hours walking in nyc before feeling achy!

Hi-I also wear size 8 1/2. I have tried on the 39 and 40 many times trying to decide between the two. Some people seem to say they stretch, other don't. The 39 feels snug, but 40s are really loose. I'm not sure which size to go with!
