Shoe Review: b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clog

Shoeaholics Anonymous Disclosure

I found some black Born shoes on clearance in my size even for under $25 at Gordman’s – Woot! They are not the Born Toby or Born Haddon that I originally pined for, but for a fraction of the regular price, I will settle with these b.o.c. by Born Lesa Clogs. Also available from DSW for $54.95 (regularly $80) in Brown and/or Red Patent.

When I was trying them on at Gordman’s, another customer warned me that they are horrible on ice and did not recommend them at all saying she owns a pair and hurt her back falling on the ice while wearing them. I agree that the sole appears “slick” with not a lot of tread, but I highly doubt they were intended to wear in icy conditions in the first place.   So, I bought them anyway! How do they look on me?

I have wore these shopping, and they are quite comfortable. In fact, I think I will wear them again today… and go shopping…

Yes, I know my phone camera sucks on taking pictures. I’m just waiting for my contract to expire so I can upgrade to an iPhone! Or maybe I should invest in a “real” camera!

    Closed-back clogs are nothing more than glofiried wedges…

    Make up your mind, Kim: black mules/clogs or brown ones?
