You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
There are no shoes that say “first hint of fall” like a pair of crisp new clogs, which can be worn with bare feet during the last days of summer and warmed up with your wooliest socks once the autumn chill sets in. When it comes to clogs, it’s hard to top a status-y No. 6 pair — the pair of shoes that former Strategist editor Margaret Rhodes called “the one that inspires mad fandom and lasting loyalty among the clogerati.” Because they have such a cult status, they are very rarely on sale — which is why we were delighted to see this “celery” pair available for 40 percent off at Shopbop, bringing the total down to $174 (these barely ever dip below $200). And if it still seems like a bit of a splurge, fear not: There are plenty of other worthy clogs in the Shopbop sale, including some neon-pink and cognac-colored Swedish Hasbeens.
