Clogs are a type of shoes and very popular for Spring-Summer 2010.
There are four main types of clogs.
Clogs can be a type of shoe or sandal made predominantly out of wood.
They can be a type of heavy boot or shoe with sides, uppers and typically thick wooden soles, and may have steel toecaps and/or steel reinforcing inserts in the undersides of the soles. A clog can also be a special kind of shoe worn while clog-dancing (clogging).
They are similar to tap shoes, but the taps are free to click against each other, therefore producing a different sound than tap shoes.
Nowadays, “clogs” also mean comfortable slip-on shoes. They are often made out of leather, but some clogs keep the bottom part out of wood.
All-rubber clogs are often worn while gardening, because they can be easily hosed off and allowed to air-dry. Some clogs come with heels, and are usually distinguished from mules by their higher vamp.
It is commonly accepted that men and women can wear low-heeled or high-heeled clogs.
