Our Clogs run True to Size, but slightly small. If you know your European size please see our size chart, if you are a half size or sometimes wear a half size we recommend sizing up. Our Clogs are an everyday ZUZII staple. Their minimal design makes them a very versatile everyday shoe. Out of the box, they will be a structured fit and form to your foot with wear.
Our clog soles are handcrafted solid wood soles carved in Europe by artisans with over 20 years of experience. Contrary to conventional thinking clog soles are one of the most comfortable soles for all-day wear. They absorb most of the shock when walking taking the pressure off your feet. The heel height is 2.75” the platform under the ball of the foot is 1.25” leaving just a 1.5” total foot lift. All the benefits of wearing a heel without hurting your feet.
Each pair is crafted from medium-density wood making them remarkably lightweight approx 15oz. Considering their comfort and lightweight, our clogs are many of our customers go to travel shoes.
Our soles have a natural wax finish to help protect the wood. Please note as these are solid wood if kicked or knocked forcefully on something harder than itself it can chip. This is not a defect but a characteristic of wood-based soles.
Buffed Full Grain
This style is crafted from Buffed Italian Vacchetta sustainably tanned in Tuscany. It has a waxed & oiled finish with a slight sheen and will form to the shape of your foot within a couple wears.
Our chrome-free vegetable tanned leather does not contain any toxic substance harmful to man and is highly tolerable for those who suffer from metal related allergies. Our dedication to ethically made footwear extends to the materials we source therefore our leather production is strictly monitored to ensure low impact on the environment.
Stains, scratches and patina all belong to the normal aging process of Italian Vacchetta leather shoes. As each batch of leather is tanned with organic material slight variances in tone and shading are regarded as a sign of craft and quality. If a slight scratch occurs simply rub the scratch with your finger to heat the oil and fade the scratch
Care & Cleaning
The use of oil based care products for this type of leather is not needed during the first years of use. As the leather contains high oil content this will keep the leather soft for years.
If a spill or stain occurs don’t worry, this leather is water resistant. Water will dry completely within a couple hours, and if the stain contains dark dye color such as berries or coffee, use a damp cloth with clean water to blot away stain and let dry completely before wear.
