What about some clogs for the Spring?

by - 1/28/2009

I am sure you have heard about "clog(s)". If the name doesn't mean anything to you, maybe just a visual idea about those hard wooden shoes, that are so popular in Netherlands and neighbor countries, will make you to remember them.

I am quite skeptic of the comfortableness of some shoes (are they going to fit me, are they going to resist, aren't they too high, etc.) and these type were on top of my list of shoes that with a very little probability, I would ever wear. Just the idea of having some shoes with a wooden sole made me feel uncomfortable.

But. And always exists a but! When I saw these beautiful handmade creations (for me, they are just art pieces) I have changed my mind instantly. Look at them! The name behind this amazing work is Yvanka Linders, a lady from Netherlands, who brings some magic to her shoes, by adding colorful beads, buttons, sequins, pearls and swarovski crystal beads.

And those jars full of crafty beads, like some precious fruity jams. Mmmmm...

I already imagine myself in a pair of these beauties, along with some jeans tucked up a little bit over the ankles, with a cotton white tunic, walking in the sunny morning of an April day.
