After clogs, comes daughter of clogs: the Scholl exercise sandal. We knew it was only a matter of time before something like this happened. Last spotted on sexy Seventies mums, the Dr Scholl single-strap sandals died an ignoble death, shunned by a generation of daughters who saw them as too ugly and, like the flip-flop (also making a comeback this summer), too passe for words. Now they are popping up on the pages of women's magazines and, if this heat-wave continues, are poised on the brink of summer revival. Best worn with brown legs, these toe-grippers are value for money at pounds 23.99, and cut a much finer figure for exercise practicality than the lumpen, brown and toadish Birkenstocks and other fakes.
