This year there were so many lovely shoe selections in women’s footwear, that it was hard to decide what we would consider the “best”. But when really taking a moment to assess the prominent shoe that kept appearing on all of the stylish nyc girls (particularly in the trendsetting planet of Brooklyn), the decision became easier…the clog boot! Every label is trying their hand on a variation of this practical shoe, but leave to our friends at NINA Z to be the pioneers and O.G. clogger in town. The Swedish born/Brooklyn based namesake Nina has been peddling traditional Swedish made clogs with a twist at the Brooklyn Flea for years now, and while it may have been easier to have selected a Louboutin pump spotted on someone like Beyoncé, the everyday choice of a boot like the “Katja” has proven to be more versatile (and also more the speed of her cooler sister Solange…just saying).
