Clogs, Clogging Shoes, Clogging Dance Shoes, Clog Shoes – What do YOU call them?

buy clogging shoes onlineAs most of you know, we sell clogging shoes and taps and New ones, used ones, and even “scratched and dent” (do clogging shoes actually “dent”?)…

Anyway, I’ve been clogging for almost 30 years.

I’ve been to a lot of clogging events, competitions, and performances and have since then worked with lots of dance studios to get them cool clogging shoes and good prices.

The question has come up recently, however, about what people actually call their clogging shoes. We call them “clogging shoes” but have heard the following variations of the name:

What do you call clogging shoes?

  • Clogs
  • Clogging Dance Shoes
  • Clog Dance Shoes
  • Clog Shoes
  • Clog Dancing Shoes
  • Tap Shoes (please don’t pick this one since they are NOT the same)
  • Buck Shoes

We look forward to comments and feedback from our fellow cloggers all over the world. When you comment, make sure you tell us where you’re from so we get a better idea if the name people call their shoes is different based on area.


The Air Clogging Shoes Response

As some of you probably saw, on Monday, April 1st, 2013 ClogOn announced a break through product – the Air Clogging Shoes!


We’re now confessing: you’ve all been “punked” – we played an “evil, evil” clogging joke on April Fools Day.

We honestly did it all in good fun and hope we didn’t get anyone’s hopes up too much (although these clogging shoes are something worth considering if the demand is really there).

Here are some of the responses we got from the clogging community:

I want these air clogs as soon as they are available!!!  Totally stoked! Yes clogging does hurt ankles if I clog too long, & b/c I was in a horrific auto wreck 2 yrs back – clogging sets off my nerve pain in my head horribly if I clog too long – this would be the answer to my prayer – I LOVE 2 CLOG!!!

And this:

I can hardly wait for them to be available – yippie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And this:

I’m guessing this is just a photo shop mock up type of thing, so people get the idea? Because I’m not jiving on the look at all. But if it’s just a mock up, I’ll keep my mind open, LOL…

And this:

…do they light up as well? Looks like lights are in the soles.

And more:

Wow. I might have to buy another pair!

But wait, there’s more:

I use to wear air or jelled inserts in my shoes because the constant stomping was killing my knees. The inserts took the shock off my knees. they really helped.

Only a couple more:

Do they help you clog better & have more “spring” in your clogging!

Some people really wondered:

Wait…..are they real then?

April Fool’s ?

Some doubted:

Wonder how these shoes are supposed to be better?


And some just out-right called us on it:

I’m calling April Fools.

April Fools, who would wear these, not me

But at the end of the day, here are the stats from our April Fool’s clogging shoes joke.

What are Clogging Shoes Really?

I’ve been clogging practically my whole life (25 of 31 years). My clogging shoes have taken me all over the world. I can’t count how many times I’ve answered the question (or one similar):

What are clogging shoes?

So, here are answers to this ongoing question:

5 Things Clogging Shoes Are Not

1. Tap Shoes

Despite the similarities and new versions of “Power Tap” that are a clogging/tap combo, clogging shoes and tap shoes are different.  The main difference is that clogging shoes have two steel taps on the toe and heel; tap shoes generally have one on the toe and heel.

2. Big Clogs

3. Small Clogs

4. Shoes You Can Sit It

5. Shoes Clogging a Toilet

Here are the clogging shoes we’re referring to:

Ms. Stompers

(Girls and Women’s Clogging Shoes)

Mr. Stompers

(Boys and Men’s Clogging Shoes)

Scoop or Mary Jane Style

(Girls and Women’s Clogging Shoes)

Why do you love clogging?

Why do you love clogging?

One of the reasons I love clogging is because you can clog to a wide variety of types of music and you don’t necessarily need clogging shoes to make it work.

This is a great example of how clogging can be done anywhere to any music.

I do recommend getting clogging shoes, even clog dancing shoes that are used, if you really want to get the most out of your clogging experience.  Not only will this help you “hear” what you’re doing, but it will give you a better feel for the steps.
