hopping in clods

28 Sep


We make no secret of our love for the word clodhopper – few words capture an idea so well. So, naturally, we’re delighted to see shoesies like inflatable boats sailing into stores. Check out the back for an Allan Key would you, Mary? These new-fangled cloggy things don’t fit our shelves. One of the most interesting incarnations for AW09/10 is Finsk’s pony hair hopper (above), available at Oak. Acne of course continues to shoe the Scandinavian set with the orthopaedic-looking Atacoma series.


Thankfully the parade of podiatric casings doesn’t discriminate between hemispheres. While Finsk and Camilla Skovgaard cater to those who may need to jump puddles (if you can lift ’em), John Rocha’s cutaway couta yachts, at London Fashion Week, put the trend on summer’s shopping list.

      Absolute pleasure, Coco. How perfectly does ‘clodhoppers’ describe these beautiful shoes? You can almost hear the hollow clap on a hardwood floor – ah. 😉
