Boy Meets Girl: Classic Shoes for Both Men and Women

Here at CLOGGS, we dedicate our Hall of Fame to timeless classic footwear styles which deserve recognition for their continued dedication to the fashion scene, year upon year. However, we rarely discuss the fantastic footwear which is gender fluid - providing a real injection of style and trend whether on the feet of men or women! There are plenty of ‘boy meets girl’ shoe styles which are equally as fashionable for both men and women, but here are some of our firm favourites.

A CLOGGS Hall of Fame classic, the Clarks Desert Boots are one of our most loved footwear styles of all time. We stock them in a range of colours and even differing materials, but the classic suede options are without a doubt the most popular choice for both men and women. The timeless Desert Boot is the ultimate smart-casual shoe, and can be worn with jeans, trousers or even a skirt/dress.

Dr Martens need no introduction, but we feel the 1460z require a discussion. These classic Dr Marten boots in a gorgeous cherry red leather are just as impressive whether on the feet of a male or female! The chunky rubber sole creates a striking finish, and when combined with the glossy red leather these boots are truly a sight to behold. Team with jeans, leggings or tights for a bold and vibrant style.

Brogues are traditionally a formal menswear shoe, though in recent times they’ve become more androgynous - and indeed, a real staple for women’s fashion. Barbour brogues are effortlessly stylish, with a wooden heel and leather upper. These can be teamed with jeans, trousers or even shorts for a more preppy look.

These are just some of the footwear styles available at CLOGGS with options for both men and women - but there are so many more! Which are your favourites? We’d love to hear from you.
