Sweden already has several great exports: Avicii, Ikea, and Svedka – but now we can add Calou Shoes to the list! This brand may be inspired by the garish Swedish clogs of viking-days, but there’s nothing tacky about these kicks. Based in Stockholm, Calou is the baby of Swedish creator Carina who wanted to give her traditional clogs a modern update. Lucky for us, they are a fashion success!

It doesn’t seem like clogs would be a typical trend, but the comfort and ease of styling to Calou Shoes make them a total hit. The Fia Boot is great for the transitional Portland spring days – rain in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon! They keep your toes dry while being a bit more fashion-forward that the traditional pair of rainboots. They’d look fab with a pair of Henry and Belle Super Skinny Ankle jeans or even worn with the the Red 23 Mini Skirt in Black over the M. Rena Tummy Tuck Leggings in Black for a more edgy look.

We love to carry brands that are hard to find elsewhere, so that’s why we always try to seek out newcomers to the scene. We currently have three styles of Calou Shoes available – the Astrid High Heel Clog in Red, the Fia Boot in Black, and the Ninni Clog in Chianti! We are loving styling them with everything – be sure to check out our Instagram (@shopadorn) for our most recent looks!
