Your SO will hate them and your best friend will question them, but I can assure you, clogs are the shoes all cool girls will be wearing this fall. Originally made in Europe in the early 1300s, clogs were initially designed and worn for various dance styles and were mainly worn by those who were considered the “lower class” in society at the time.
