The high quality of the materials Caretti carefully selects is why it has created products that are made to last.
Why Wear Clogs
Especially dresses. If you’re looking beyond flats, but fear a kitten heel might look mumsy or just plain wrong with a dress, clogs are your friend. And think of all those flared trousers that you haven’t been able to wear because they look all wrong with flats. Best of all, a backless clog bares a little skin but keeps your toe secrets secret. Unless you’ve managed to get a professional pedicure already, that’s probably how they should stay.
Clog shoes were derived from “calceus” shoes, wooden-soled shoes that existed during the Roman empire.
Three Weeks To Make
You can buy clogs around the globe but rest assured the quality and attention to detail is not the same as the Caretti manufacturing. The clogs are all hand made in Italy and the process takes three weeks to create by experienced artisans. Their sustainable message is that by ordering a bespoke clog it will last for years.
Made In Italy
Supporting a product made from an Italian family is a priceless feeling. I was so excited knowing that the clog was getting made for me. It has been lovely liaising with the designers in the last three weeks seeing the process of my clogs being slowly made. It’s a priceless experience.
Choosing Your Clog Colour
The colours are endless and it all comes down to personal taste. I opted for the following three colours. Red is my favourite colour, I call my red clogs Ferrari red. Though on the Caretti website it’s called Parrot Red. Red for me represents a passion for life.

What a beautiful Christmas gift idea.
For my second pair, I chose the colour Denim Blue, due to the colour being very versatile. Denim Blue or Dark Blue goes very well with my denim pencil skirt, vintage Prada jeans or leather trousers and leggings.
At this stage, the leather has to set roughly over two weeks for it to mould to the shape of the clog.
Ingrassato Deep Forest
I am staying at Fattoria Mansi Bernardini surrounded by 5000 olives trees. For me, I had to opt for an olive green because olive trees and the green colour represent hope! Wearing green empowers me to keep working towards goals that I can achieve. On the website, it is called Ingrassato Deep Forest.
The Wooden Clog
Clogs are famous for the wood sole to be very heavy. But this is not the case with Caretti. The brand has cleverly engineered the wood sole to be light in weight. Therefore walking around them all day long is not an issue and very comfortable with a stylish look.
The sole has a firm grip by top brand Vibram which means walking around a Villa in Tuscany means my clog grip is firm and I won’t slip over.
Clogs For Life
We are all aware of the saying less is more. During 2020 many people have come to reflect that quality shoes are worth investing in. For the simple reason that shoes can last a lifetime thanks to Caretti.
It’s a lifestyle wearing Caretti clogs. I use them because they are very comfortable and indestructible. They are also perfect in the kitchen, whilst I cook. Or standing outside picking lemons from my lemon tree.
