So, my birthday was the other day, and my girlfriend got me a pair of Dansko brown leather clogs. They aren't my usual cup of tea, but she swears by the things, so I figure I'd give them a try.

The problem I'm having is I have no idea what to wear with these things. Since we've been dating, my clothing inventory has grown, so I have a lot of options.

Any suggestions?

Wow, seriously, I have no idea. I hope someone will help you, because in my opinion those things are not wearable for the average man.

Unless you are going to wear them due to your job requirement , I would thank your girlfriend and put those clogs in the back of your closet never to see the light of day. Why would she get you clogs? Do you have issue with your feet or back? If this the case maybe a wide jeans which would cover the fact that it's Dansko clog....

To add to what I said, I realize that fashion is much different in Europe, and I am assuming the OP is from the USA. If not, my apologies.

Yeah... Ask the person who bought them.

That would be a waste. Danskos are expensive, if he's not going to wear them his girlfriend would probably want her $100+ back.

We don't know anything about you or what you do for work, and those are some important considerations.

Generally, though, these clogs would be considered casual shoes, so you would probably wear them with blue jeans, chinos, cords, and other casual wear. I would not wear them as part of a dress outfit, either a suit or even a sports coat.

Burn them.

There is no possible way to make those things look good. They're uglier than Crocks. Best you can do is throw on a nice pare of well-worn jeans (you know, the ones your mom tries to throw out every time she visits) and a t-shirt with at least fifteen holes in it that you just won't throw out because you like it so much.

Thats quite Simple. Take the bill, return it, get the money back, and reimburse her with the money burned in gas + tolls. Works every single time someone else buys stuff I don't wear.
