This isn’t a true case of Shoe Deja Vu, because as you can see from the image above, it’s unlikely that anyone’s ever going to mistake ASOS.com’s studded clogs for the Chanel versions Alexa Chung wore on the cover of UK Vogue’s March issue (and which she’s been seen in several times since).
Those clogs have been hotly debated since Alexa first wore them. I’ve heard people praise them to the heavens, and I’ve also heard people say they hate them with the passion of a thousand hot suns, so they seem to be one of those items that divide opinion. Personally, I’d be unlikely to buy a pair of these, even at the ASOS price of £85, but I don’t hate them either, and were they to miraculously appear inside my shoe closet one morning, I’d probably have a stab at wearing them.
What do you think, though – of either the Chanel originals or the ASOS versions? Which Clog Camp are you in?
