Milan High Clogs by Ugglebo

I recently reached out to the Swedish clog brand- Ugglebo, because all my pals in Phoenix were wearing them and I just had to see what all the fuss was about. I chose and received a pair of the Milan High clogs because a.) I love higher heels and b.) they have straps around the heels so my feet won’t slip out. They came in a signature Ugglebo box and wrapped in tissue. Also included was a postcard that briefly describes their story and a cute key chain. The clogs feature an Alderwood base and soft nubuc leather, which is stapled to the wood for a classic look. The heel is 3.9″ ( 10 cm) high. They run true to size, as I am a 9 (39 according to the size chart). I love that the scalloped edge brings a certain European-esque charm to the clog. If you aren’t used to clogs already, you do have to break them in and it does take a few weeks. Just wear them for a few hours for a few days a week on carpet and you should be fine. Also, give the leather (especially around the toes) some time to stretch as it, because at first (at least for my feet anyway) it does seem a little tight. But for the most part, they are comfortable and easy to walk in. I would definitely recommend getting a pair of these unique clogs, they come in a variety of styles from heels, wedges, boots, to shearling and vintage. And ahem, not to mention they look fab dressed by themselves or with a pair of tights or socks- just sayin…

I also want to share some of their backstory with you. The company was founded in 1965 by renowned clog maker -Sven Carlsson. He launched the brand based on his years of making comfortable clogs for men and women and combining those techniques and todays fashion trends. His son, Christer has since joined the team and has taken over as head clog master. Today, Ugglebo prides itself on the same legacy of handcrafting comfortable and luxurious clogs as it did back in 1965. The brand also participates in several charities, including Donate Your Old Shoes. After hearing the charity’s mission, Ugglebo launched Re-Clog the World– encouraging folk from all over the world to send their old clogs, no matter what brand and in return, Ugglebo will donate them on your behalf to Donate Your Old Shoes.
