If you (or someone you’re shopping for) has yet to join the Clogerati but you don’t want want to splurge on a pair of No. 6’s, we found this pair of clog boots on sale at Madewell that remind us of a fancier version of our other favorite clogs from Dansko. The leopard-calf-hair upper is bold but still neutral, and the wooden heel gives them a bit more of a cobbler-made look. That heel is two inches, by the way, giving these some lift. The clog boots also feature Madewell’s so-called Cloudlift Lite padding, so they should be just as comfy to wear as their fuglier Dansko cousins. On sale for more than half off right now, their price has dropped to a reasonable $105. We also spotted some pairs in black on sale (though not as steeply), but those have fewer sizes available (so if you see yours and like the clog boots, we suggest not to dillydally).
