Sandgrens clogs have been made in Sweden since 1846. Sandgrens is considered among the oldest clog brands in the world. Today they are going back to their roots, which started with master clog maker Sven Carlsson, which was eventually passed down to Sven’s son, Christer, to restore the clog brand back to its former greatness. They are using time-honored techniques along with the finest leather, metal hardware, and wood into the highest quality clogs you see today.
This is my second pair of clogs I have been able to review from Sandgrens. The first pair I reviewed were the Mia style and I love them so much, I wear them everyday. This time around I picked the Seoul. These clogs are pretty much your basic clogs, but they have a cute little twist. They have this intricate leaf style design on them making them dressy enough for date night, but casual enough to wear to drop kids off at school or run errands during the day. You might be wondering, is it really comfortable to walk around in wooden shoes all day. Don’t worry I thought the same thing when I received my first pair. How in the world could that be comfortable. It is surprisingly comfortable. Sandgrens clogs are more comfortable than my regular tennis shoes. The Seoul clogs are made out of a Swedish Alder wood base with a low heel. The leather is a stylish Horween nubuc leather. To make it even more “true” they staple the leather to the wood base. The heel is only 1.75″ so they are high enough to make their statement, but not too high. These clogs are real homemade clogs and make you feel like you are holding on to history when you wear a pair. Something cute that I also noticed on them that on the sides there are little Owls on them near the ankle. I looked on my Mia pair and didn’t see that anywhere. It is a nice little touch. Now on to the size. These clogs do run narrow. I normally wear a 7.5 and have a very wide foot. After talking with customer service (which is awesome by the way) she helped determined my size. The clogs fit me really well, but I would suggest ordering the next size up if you have a wider foot. You could also contact customer service and they would be happy to help you figure out your correct shoe size.
My Recommendation: I would love to find another pair of Sandgrens under the tree this year. They are very well made and are so comfortable that I don’t mind standing in them all day. They are very affordable, the Seoul is only $129.99 but you can find wedges for as low as $49.99.
Purchase: Head on over and purchase the Seoul and to check out their entire line of clogs.
