Product Review: Chukka Clog Boots By Sandgrens

Earlier, when I think of Clogs I think of grandma. I mean, I think of those days when "Bakya" (Clogs) were such a hit in the Philippines that ladies would want to buy at least a pair of those. You would see ladies clogging their way down the street and hear the clicky-dee-clocking on the pavement. I never wanted a pair because I really thought it was kind of hilarious and not so comfortable to wear. Plus, it was really noisy. But when I learned about Sandgrens Clogs, I wanted a pair. I wanted to know how it feels like putting on a pair of clog boots that are made in Sweden. I wanted to know if is it really comfortable or would I really like the style, the fit, etc. Luckily, Sandgrens provided me a pair of clog boots for a product review. Here are my thoughts, but first, a little introduction to Sandgrens and the pair of boots I received.

I am wearing a size 37 (6 US) and normally I would go with a wider width because I have fabulous wide feet, but these fit just right. Yes, I can still wear a pair of socks with these.

What Do I Think Of The Boots?
- To be honest with you, I wasn't really sure what to think of the boots. I wasn't really in love with it when I opened up the box. I tried it on and it was a bit awkward. And I thought, maybe it takes a while to get used to wearing a pair of new clog boots. After all, this is really my first ever pair of clogs. 

- Then I gave it a try again and wore it a little bit longer this time and it is amazing at what I feel about it the second time. Because the longer I wear the boots, the more comfortable I get and the more I like to wear it. It's weird, but that's my experience. I am definitely keeping it and will be wearing it more. 

- Because they are clog boots, meaning they are a type of footwear made in part wood, the base of the boots are not flexible. But, it is true, they are comfortable. It says that Sandgrens uses the finest leathers, wooden bases, and metal hardware available throughout the world. 

- Of course you are going to want to know if this pair of clog boots are heavy or not, and they are not! And they don't make a lot of that Bakya noise that we Filipinos are used to hearing. (LOL)

- I wasn't so sure about the stapling around the boots either, but based on what I see with the pair of boots I got, they are not breaking anytime soon. Well crafted, the leather feels soft and comfortable, and I am really starting to love it. Now, when I think of clogs, I am not just thinking about the grandma-ish type of clogs, but the Sandgrens. Thank you, Sandgrens!

  1. You look beautiful and stylish. I liked the non-sip soles on your clogs and would expect that the wooden part of the sole will provide high quality insulation from your cold WY winter weather. They look beautiful on your feet.

  2. It seems stylish enough though - it may feel different on the first try but I guess it's still well worth it!

  3. They really look fashionable!!! I like the design, I wonder if there's anything like this around here in PH :) I used to like Bakyas too but I think I only owned one :)

  4. the boots look great on you! I was supposed to ask you if it makes the "bakya' sound but i find the answer as i read on:)

  5. That is beautiful Mommy! I love their collection of knee high boots as well.

  6. Nice pair of boots, sexy and can go with skirt too!

  7. I remember wearing bakya in CRs in Philippines. It's very slippery! That's nice that those pair of shoes has rubber mommy. Nice black shoes you have! You look cute!

  8. That's what I like about Sandgreens, the sole of their clogs saves us from slipping.

  9. those are to cute i want a pair off to shop. i love your outfits you are so put togther and cute
