Suede Clogs by Clarks
Clarks sale. Heels with a platform means that you get the height without the pain. They come with a soft suede insole too. A good addition to the summer shoe collection.
However I am not sure if they will make good cycle shoes. Of course cycling in clogs in tricky but I had no problem with my last pair by El Naturalista. I have even cycled in flip flops so I was caught by surprise when I found that these clogs just slip off the pedals if you are not careful. I can see that although Clarks have put on a rubber section on the sole and the heel the rest of the shoe is a smooth varnish wood which doesn’t grip at all on a bike pedal.
I took sandpaper to the wooden sections of the sole but I am thinking of putting on thin strips of gaffer tape just to make sure.
