@Acton,
Depends on....
A wellmade clog with leather on top is healthy, but should not be used all day.
It is not good for walking, but working in garden or on a field or beach.
Absoolutely the wrong thing when driving.
Do not use indoors.
The latest style with high heals are not good.

@Acton,
I wear them pretty much every day - year round. I have clogs for rain/snow/mud/gardening. I have indoor clogs and outdoor clogs. I started wearing clogs when they were sort of trendy in the early 1970's and never really moved on (I have other shoes but I love clogs best - I even have a type of cowboy clog).

Different types work best for different people and different situations.

I am just curious how you wear clogs in snow. They are open and you get wet feet.
Indoor glogs? Walk around with clogs in indoors in your home - they are rather noisy and hard.In Scandinavia wewould never walk into a home with clogs on. Leave them outside or just inside the door - depending on weather

@saab,
I have shearling lined clogs for snow. I wear them til the snow is deep enough to go over the top of the shearling in the back.

There are clogs with soft rubber soles for indoor wear.

Long time Dansko clog lover here and waving. My hometowns for the last many decades don't get much snow. A little bit, once in a while, in Albuqueque, and just about none at all by the ocean in northern California - much less than none by the ocean in Los Angeles.

A laguage problem. What you call a clog I call träsko=wooden shoes.
That would be the Swedish style.
The others I would not call clogs. Funny thing I do not even know what you call them in Swedish and I do not know if I know anyone wearing that style as a rule. Guess I do, but don´t see it.
Swedish style clogs I used to have for gardenwork, but not anymore.
I do not see them sold that often either anymore. Was looking last summer.
I once bought a pair of rieker shoes. Comfortable in the store and just made my legs heavy and hurting.
I found one shoe I really like Everybody Light and comfortable

I got curious - what you call indoor clogs I found pictures of on a Swedish page.
They are called morgonskor - morning shoes.
Used to be shoes you wore in the morning going from bedroom to bathroom.
Now you can wear them all day but more for cosyness.Nice and warm for watching TV and reading a book..

@saab,
wooden shoes/clogs are one type of clog

it's a pretty big shoe category overall - goes from Allegrias all the way to traditional Dutch clogs. The Dr. Scholl's that were popular in the early 1970's are sort of the halfway mark, stylistically.

__

one of the reasons I like them is that they all have some kind of height at the back. because of the very high arch to my foot (thank you hamburgboy), I cannot wear very flat shoes

@ehBeth,
Hey, we are alike in that. Part of why I like Danskos is that they fit my high arched feet. I'm a very picky shoe person for that reason. Aside from the high arch or because of it, an orthopedist long ago told me that my metatarsals don't roll when one steps quite like other peoples' do... it's more of a slap. Thus my interest in just the right running shoes.

the Dr. Scholl's classic clog

learning to clench your toes just right was a rite of passage

Dansko history -

Not made in Denmark, but there was a Danish background to the story.

@ehBeth,
I know the shoes and that they are good for clenching toes.
Personally I do not like them as they are too slippery.

@Acton,
I love to wear wooden clogs as they offer both comfort and style which makes them suitable for everyday wear. They can be worn with any type of clothing. This is the reason, I always prefer to wear clogs as they are the perfect companions for my feet.
