Although today's post is about something I had to buy to accommodate my knitted solution.
I think I have mentioned that I live in Merrell clogs. Several different pairs and colors over the years.
So comfortable, plus there is a slight heel counter at the back so that my arch supports stay in place. The downside is that, although these are perfect for three seasons, the mesh is not very warm in the the winter.
I have made thick socks either from worsted weight sock yarn or by double-stranding sock yarn. These socks are toasty warm (well, the ones from Berrocco Vintage are not nearly as warm as the ones from all wool, but work with me here, m'kay?) but rather too thick to fit comfortably into my clogs (or shoes, for that matter).
Inspiration struck -- I need a pair of winter clogs! Leather for warmth, rather than mesh, and a half size bigger to allow clearance for the socks. Zappo's to the rescue!
Behold, the clogs I found:
As I was about to click on "Submit order" I noticed a similar pair in the sidebar that said Suregrip. Huh. Given my uneasy relationship with gravity, I thought to check them out.
