Street Feet: Red Swedish Clogs

Swedish Fish: Fishing For Compliments in these Candy Sweet Red Swedish Clogs in the Ballard district

Ballard is an historically rich community that boasts a proud (and colorful) Scandinavian heritage. So in my attempt to blend in last summer, I kicked down some good Americano dinero to purchase the candy apple red, tall yet traditional Swedish beauties that you see here. They are still being broken in, but I can see YEARS of good wear in these Nordic lovelies!

As they say in the old country: Lev ditt liv lokal, och älskar den globala (Live local, love global.)

They're beautiful! I love that colour. I must say though that I find it hard to believe you could ever blend in. You were obviously born to stand out! XO

I spent my entire childhood wearing clogs, as did everyone else in my little backwater village in Sweden in the 70s :)
We used to have this rather dangerous 'clog game' where you had to flip your clog off your foot whilst on the swing, whoever flipped their clog the furthest won...I'm just glad no one ever walked in front of one of those deadly clog projectiles.
Clogs last forever, I still have a pair of my mums old clog boots from the 70s and they are still going strong, so no doubt you'll get your moneys worth out of your super pretty Swedish clogs...xXx

They're so lovely - and another lady said, they'll last forever! I'd love to see the outfit that went with the clogs as well.

I love clogs .. so hard to find companies that make half sizes. I wear size 8.5 and when I'm told to 'go up a half size' I say, No thanks! You can see that I have extra heel on the back and it looks stupid :-P

I love these! I bought my first pair of red shoes last year - at the age of 64!!! I now have a second pair and expect to add more to my wardrobe. Why did I have to wait 64 years to discover that black is boring?

Carina Rosenholm said...

I love clogs! Wear them every summer!

Joni said...

Those are some click, I mean clog your heels Nordic lovlies! You picked a great color too.

I took my kids to the Nordic Heritage Community Center a couple of times for something to do. We had a Nordic breakfast and watched movies in a language we couldn't even understand...but it was fun anyway. Free fun!

Looking forward to meeting you Bella! Let's not feel like we have to make a big to do dressing up. I'm usually a very casual person and rarely "cuteness" myself up a whole lot. ;) Just don't want you to overdress me and make me look dumpy! LOL

Those red clogs are adorable. I love that scalloped design.

PinkCheetahVintage said...

Cute!! That skirt hem looks pretty awesome, too...

Patti said...

Nordic lovelies, indeed! So cute.

Sheila said...

Ooh, I need a profile pic of these lovely shoes! I'd also like to see the rest of the skirt that that tantalizing little plaid bit belongs to.

The Style Crone said...

My Nordic heritage concurs with your love for the Red Swedish Clogs!

Bohemian Chick said...

I love red shoes! These are so nice!
I used to have a pair of red suede ankle boots, and I can't find them. I can't believe that I would have got rid of them, but that's what happens when you move a lot. :-(

Those are the rubiest, apple-iest, fire-enginiest red shoes. I love them, Bella!

Vix said...

Clogs should always be red, that's the law! That wonderful glimpse of your outfit has me gasping for more. (and it appears I'm writing in prose!) xxx

The Dutch Lady of Fashion said...

I want these! I have a very similar pair of Lucky Brand clogs that I found at a liquidation outlet for $35, but yours are much cuter!

Cute shoes - and so Ballard! Have you tried Lutefisk yet? (Sort of a fish jello.) They have a fun festival devoted to it.
