The Charlie - Our take on a traditional Mary Jane. A closed-toe shoe with a back strap. Features our widest toe of any of our closed-styles. Perfect to wear with socks or tights of any thickness. The low heel is great for wear for those with flatter feet or those who struggle with high heels to wear for daily use for any occasion. Available in our variety of American Leathers in Coal, Smoke, Cranberry, Blueberry, Natural, Teakwood, Chestnut.
A note on our new base style: We spent a very long time - and many, many revisions - designing the perfect base. And she is beautiful! Made from solid white oak, and finished with a soft oil finish, this is the clog you've been dreaming about! The slightly wider, more block heel style helps to keep your foot and ankles stable. And a heel pad with double the shock absorption makes walking a dream. Plus, slightly more arch support helps keep your feet feeling great all day. We love the look and fit of these, and we know you will too!
All clogs are made to order. Current production time is approx. 3-4 weeks. Purchase includes a complimentary cotton shoe bag.
(Please Note: Due to the fact that all clogs are handmade to order, we only offer store credit/exchange on regularly priced items. Please see our Refund Policy for more information.)
How should I care for my clogs?
Each pair of clogs will wear differently depending on the wearer. We recommend treating them with care - they are made from natural materials and will scratch, chip, and/or scuff. We do not consider these defects in the craftsmanship. An occasional mild cleaning and waxing will help to protect your shoes. We recommend Smith’s Leather Balm. It is a great product for both the leather uppers and wooden bases - plus, it is made right here in Maine! But as with any leather conditioner, it might change the “look” of your shoes so test it on a small, hidden area to be safe.
What are the differences in the base heights?
Currently we offer two bases - a “low base” and a “high base”. The low base tends to run on the wider side and is typically more comfortable for all day wear. The high base tends to be slightly more narrow, and is a good fit for those who would like to add a little more height - but still have a comfortable shoe.
Where do you get your materials?
We have searched high and low (it took YEARS!) to find the perfect wooden bases. Made from European hardwood, our bases are shipped directly from Sweden. We figured to be the best, we needed to use the best!
Our leather is sourced from the last remaining tannery in Maine. The quality just can’t be beat - and we love that it is made right here in our wonderful state!
My clogs chipped - can I return them?
Unfortunately, no. As they say in the clog world: “chips happen”. This is considered normal “wear and tear” and not a manufacturing defect. But the good thing is - they’re usually pretty easy to repair. If you’re feeling handy, a little wood glue should do the trick. But, if you’d rather not tackle the job any cobbler should be able to easily make the repair.
The bottom sole came off - can I still wear my clogs?
NO! Please bring them to a cobbler to have a new bottom piece attached. Wearing your clogs with out the bottom sole will quickly destroy the wood, making them unable to be resoled.
