Clog Convert

One of the fabulous things I have discovered in Japan is the clog. I know, I know. Shouldn't I have discovered this in Holland. And shouldn't I have discovered something very high-tech in Japan. But No. I discovered the brilliance of the low-tech clog in Japan. I adore them. And they are perfect for me. Unfortunately, my footprint is the shape of a triangle. I have a very wide ball, and a narrow heel. So most shoes I buy are fairly wide to fit the ball of my foot. And then the back of the shoe doesn't grip onto my heel. My mother used to drive me 5 hours to get good shoes when I was a kid (and then I would lose 1 of them, but that's another story). But clogs...they have no backs! Therefore there's nothing to give me blisters on my achilles. This is just one the most wonderful things ever. I now own several pairs. Why, oh why didn't I try them before?
