Why Clogs Are the Perfect Summer Shoes

Before heading out, most people take their time to put together the perfect outfit. Shoes are an essential part of the equation. The right shoes can set your mood and make you feel confident with your appearance. If your shoes are uncomfortable, lack adequate support, or are causing pain and irritation from persistent contact and friction, they’ll affect your mood.

During the summer, the last thing you want is to be uncomfortable while out and about. You want to enjoy the sun and all of the season’s best activities. You want your summer shoes to be comfortable, stylish, and versatile, and that’s what you get with clogs! 

Clogs Are Easy to Slip-On

The most distinct feature of clogs is their chunky heels. The shoes are also typically backless and do not have laces, which enables you to slip in and out of them quickly. Many people choose clogs for their ease of wear.

The summer season is often filled with recreational activities. Family gatherings, picnics, amusement parks, music festivals, and vacations are just some of the adventures you’re likely to go on.  So, wearing shoes that permit you to keep up with the excitement of the season and limit the time spent on lacing or fastening your footwear is ideal. 

They Keep Your Feet Cool

In the summer, constant movement and higher temperatures cause feet to sweat, and being in non-breathable shoes can be incredibly uncomfortable. Summer shoes must be breathable, and the best options are made of natural material like leather. Wearing leather clogs that also have an open back is a great way to keep your feet cool and prevent overheating.

Clogs Offer Supreme Comfort

Clogs have many features, but the most critical is comfort. Because of the smart design, many professionals in the medical field often wear clogs. They’re ideal for long-term wear. If you’re on your feet for an extended period, clogs deliver optimal comfort.

Even if you’re not on your feet all day for your day, you may have foot, joint, or back issues that limit the types of shoes you can wear. Clogs are likely a great choice for you. Not only will clogs be comfortable, but they may even help prevent further damage to your body that poor footwear can cause. Your feet need support in order to balance your entire body.

Your Shoes Must Provide Sufficient Support

Supportive shoes limit the amount of stress placed on ankles, knees, and other parts of your body. With reinforcement in your shoes’ soles, the pressure placed on the feet, back, and knees is reduced.

If you suffer from flat feet, which is a condition caused by a lowered or non-existent arch, wearing shoes that do not fit comfortably will cause you pain. With the arch support that’s built in to your clogs for summer, your condition can stop progressing and even improve. While wearing the proper shoes to support your arches and allow your toes room to stretch and balance your body, your summer travels and adventures will be more enjoyable.

Clogs Come in a Variety of Styles

Clogs have come a long way. Initially, they were designed to protect the feet from dirt, debris, and harsh elements. Now, clogs offer the same protection but in aesthetically pleasing styles. They come in a range of colors, materials, and designs to suit different tastes. Men and women can find both comfort and style with clogs for summer.

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.
