Alright here's the deal—you're looking for a pair of shoes that are slightly dressy and slightly casual, but not your average "dress shoe." As you are looking, it may seem as though the options are a bit limited, but that's because you forgot about something—clogs. While clogs haven't always been viewed on the "fashionable" side (there was a time period where they were mostly worn by those that had jobs where it required them to stand all day), the tide is slowly starting to change. While clogs remain close to their practical and functional nature, many brands and designers have begun playing around with the overall design, colors, etc., of clogs to give them a more modern look, and dare we say—it seems as though clogs are beginning to become something close to statement piece. Today we'll be taking a look at the best men's clogs for fashion and function, but first, there's a few things we need to go over.

Are Clogs in Style for Men?

Clogs are definitely on the rise as they are starting to become more popular amongst those looking for a comfortable balance between style and comfort. We predict that they will become even more popular in the months and years to come.

What is a Clog?

So what exactly is a clog? By definition, a clog is a type of footwear that's made almost or fully from wood. The Oxford Dictionary refers to clogs as a "shoe with a thick wooden sole," and while a wooden shoe initially sounds like something that wouldn't be too comfortable, the overall way in which they are designed is built to help the natural arch of your foot, which in turn helps promote comfort and alleviate pain caused by issues such as having flat feet and Plantar Fasciitis.

Lately, the term has come to mean a variety of shoes that replicate that overall shape, while not necessarily made from wood. There are great clogs made of rubber, leather and numerous other materials.
