The word “clog” might not inspire the warmest feelings. But one gander at these shoes will be enough to convince you that there are more to clogs than the klompen your dad brought you from the Netherlands 20 years ago. In a steadfast aim to prove that luxury can be as sustainable as any other caliber of clothing, the American-born Sydney Brown makes her shoes with the utmost care and attention to the environment. To do so, she sometimes has to get creative, using things like coconuts for the shoes’ insoles. Handmade by artisans in her Los Angeles atelier, these particular clogs are made of faux nappa leather, a cork covered recycled-fiber insole, sustainable harvested North American alder wood platforms, and a natural rubber sole. And because they’re all natural, the colors are subject to slight changes.
