EcoWool Clogs announced for Fall 2019

We are very excited to announce the first release in our new EcoWool line! As part of our company wide Species Preservation effort, we are releasing a limited edition collection of Shetland & Stonesheep wool clogs. They will be available in Fall 2019 for $130 in both Men's & Women's US sizes. 

Our Species Preservation initiative is a joint effort between Stegmann Austria and Stegmann USA to source and utilize only small scale, cruelty-free European wool in our clog production. Our initial release of Stonesheep and Shetland are comprised of single source European wools that are minimally processed, un-dyed, and chosen for their high quality. The Tyrolian Stonesheep of Austria and the Shetland Sheep of Scotland are sheep breeds that are not commonly used in mass wool production. These breeds are not endangered, but there are a limited number of farms in Europe that continue to breed them. By utilizing these uncommon wools for our production, we can help continue to safeguard and support the sustained breeding of these special sheep.

The new, Stegmann EcoWool clog is one of the most sustainable shoes ever created. This sleek, modern-looking clog is made with 100% undyed, chemical-free, cruelty-free, sustainable single source wool from small farms in Austria and Scotland. In some cases the wool supply chain is only 30 miles long; truly a farm to foot experience!
The EcoWool clog sources wool from Tyrolean Stone Sheep in Austria and Shetland Sheep in Scotland -- two breeds not typically used for large scale production. This sourcing strategy is part of a company-wide Species Preservation initiative to financially support European farmers that are raising vulnerable and rare species. Preservation of these breeds is important to Stegmann as they represent a long and storied history of European wool production and produce beautiful, uniquely colored wools. Without the financial support of Stegmann, and other Tyrolian wool manufacturers these rare sheep breeds might no longer exist.

The Stegmann felting process is completely chemical free and Zero Waste, with no wool or water wasted in the production process. The wastewater from the felting process is clean enough to be safely reintegrated into the ecosystem, or even consumed. Furthermore, 100% of the carbon dioxide generated in the production and transportation process is accounted for and offset through green energy investments.
As with all Stegmann wool clogs, EcoWool clogs are hand-felted using artisanal, proprietary methods developed and honed over the last 130 years. The EcoWool clog has a smooth and seamless one-piece upper with uniform thickness throughout. The benefits to this are two fold: customers enjoy unparalleled comfort. No rubbing, no irritation, perfection right out of the box. Zero internal seams guarantees an extended clog lifespan, and the upper is paired with an anatomically shaped cork and latex footbed, to provide optimal anatomical support and comfort for the wearer.

Based on personal experience, the Stegmann cork and latex midsole with enhanced arch support and deep heel cup is just what my feet need to absorb the shock of wood floors while keeping plantar fasciitis flares to a minimum. The rubber traction sole allows me to walk confidently outside to bring the trash cans in or even venture out on a quick grocery run.

Size Guide

**Current sizing for wool may be different than in the past, please check for your correct size before ordering**

Stegmann wool felt clogs are felted on a European last, which results in a more generous fit. They will also loosen slightly with long term wear as the felt compresses. The Stegmann clogs of today may be wider than styles you have bought in the past.

Wool Clogs Size Recommendations:

 

Leather Clog Size Recommendations:

Our leather clogs fit true to size and will loosen only slightly with wear. Leather is available in US Whole sizes only. If you are between sizes we recommend sizing up. If you prefer a very snug fit or have a narrow foot you may consider sizing down. 

 

  Old vs New Clog Dimensions:

If you're looking to replace an older pair of Stegmann Clogs with the same size, we've provided all of the sole dimensions for you below. Many of our loyal, long time customers tell us the fit has changed a bit over the years, so we provided these charts so you can be certain you're getting the same size clogs as the old pair you love. Simply measure the widest and longest points on the bottom of the shoe to match with our measurements. As a rule: when in doubt, size down in wool felt, and size up in leather.
