The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
What goes around comes around—even with fashion, and the clogs trend is back! But we see why: Classic wooden clogs are effortless to throw on, durable for long days or hours standing, and have a sleek silhouette that works with almost any outfit.
We’ve found nine brands crafting the best wooden clogs—far more sustainable clogs than Dansko’s one iconic pair. Instead, these are beautifully made, eco-friendly clogs with sustainable wood, responsibly sourced leather & cork, all assembled by hand. They’re worth the investment in more ways than one. 👞

Beklina was one of the first online eco-boutiques way back in 2006. Today, this shop carries knits, jewelry, housewares, and handmade shoes. The entire collection is ethically produced, and the clogs are responsibly made in Peru using 100 percent Italian leather and hand-carved wood. (Though if you prefer a treaded rubber bottom, some Beklina clogs have that, too!) The ribbed design, rich colors, and durable heel make these clogs worthy of a chef’s kiss.

The Greta comes as a backless slip-on or with a backstrap option and in a range of gorgeous colors.
