Fashion Update: Clogged up

LAST summer, Gucci made clogs for women. This summer, Gucci is making them for men, too. Traditionally, men have a tough time with summer shoes: choice has been limited to leather Jesus sandals, smelly trainers, boat shoes, or, more recently, Birkenstocks. So the Gucci clog makes a change. And at least pounds 115 a pair, they should well see you through to next summer, too - if you are not sick of the sight of them by then. The women's version was copied up and down the high street. The men's will be, too. Just one hint: avoid wearing them with socks.
