As a big fan of clogs, one of the big surprises on the Spring runways was the resurgence of the clog. The wooden-soled staple of Scottish dancers and chefs and nurses the world over received a chic update from some unlikely sources, including Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. But credit Vera Wang with being ahead of the trend. A longtime believer in the backless shoe—she wears hers with leggings—the designer has given her Lavender Label clogs a tough-chic biker spin. And what's more, they're in stores now.
