I have been a clog wearing girl for about 9 years now. I had never tried Born clogs before and am so glad I did!
I went into the store wearing the same clogs I had worn for the last 9 years...yes, 9 years!! I had heard good things about Born so I started looking at the available styles. I picked one that I thought I could live with and asked for my size (11). The sales girl brought them out and I slipped my foot in. OH.MY.WORD!! Heaven I tell ya. I couldn't BELIEVE how wonderful these felt compared to the shoes I had been wearing!
The Born Pennywise clogs had such SUPPORT and the footbed was CUSHIONED and cradled my foot. I was in love before I even looked in a mirror. When I did look in the mirror..I wasn't thrilled. Unfortunately, the front of the shoe..the toe part.."curls" up kinda. Not drastically..but just enough that they reminded me of elf shoes. I was so disappointed. I walked around the shoe department and with each step grew more in love. I asked some strangers opinions and they all said they looked fine. At that point, I didn't really care, I wanted these little (ok, big--I wear an 11!!) pieces of Heaven to come home with me! I put my old 9 year old shoes in the box, kept the Born's on my feet and walked out of the store a happy customer with comfy feet!
I walked around the mall in my new shoes and realized that I had to actually WALK, you know, heel toe, heel toe, rather than the sliding/shuffling thing I used to do. The Born shoes have a great tread on the bottom that I just needed to get used to. I have worn my Born clogs in the rain and snow for a couple months now, they are holding up great and the leather is showing NO signs of wear.
