Has any shoe had a better redemption arc than the clog? Once ridiculed, diminished to the corners of The Sound of Music or what your dad would wear to garden in, the clog has made a serious comeback, in large part thanks to Birkenstock. The Boston, one of the footwear brands longest-running styles, even became one of the most-searched for items last year on Lyst

After a series of collabs and crossovers, the Boston Clog has cemented itself in the Clog Hall of Fame – alongside the humble Croc (now also overwhelmingly popular). Clogs have gone full circle, and luxury fashion houses want in. From Balenciaga’s infamous Crocs to Gucci’s monogrammed rubber mules, there’s a clog for everyone nowadays. Take a look.
