If only these clogs could talk

Bruce received a special package today in the mail. A package that made him very happy. The twelve year old clogs on the right are now officially retired. Something we have been meaning to do for a long time, but we kept putting it off. In the beginning, these clog's walked the halls of Alfred University during Bruce's grad days there and then they moved to Seagrove, NC to set up studio. For many a day and night these clogs supported the making of numerous pots.

Maxwell just wants to be sure if these new shoes will like to play with the red ball too.

Nothing is better than a new pair of clogs. I got a new pair right before the CDC last year. Heaven!

Great! What kind or those to have the gripper soles??!! I'd like to get a pair. I've been using my garden Birkenstocks but they are sooo slick this time of year and my Dansko's are too nice($) to wear in the studio. those you have look perfect.

The wooden clogs are Troentorp Bastad made in Sweden the particular name of his are The Rembrandt. They have many styles. Bruce loves these and likes wearing them. They have good arch support and he finds standing on wooden clogs forgiving.

http://www.pegasusshoes.com but they were out of the kind Bruce wanted so we then bought the ones that he has from http://www.cloghouse.com/

I might have to get some of these. But do you recommend for winter weather use? Also, do they have a cousin discount if I mention your name? ;-)

Bruce wears these clogs every day of the year, but only in the studio. He will wear other shoes to and from work and slip into his clogs when he starts throwing. As far as a cousins discount. I wish because I think I want to get myself a pair too:)
