Lulu Clogs

Lulu Clogs 2

Today, I would like you to meet a young and beautiful woman with an amazing shoe collection: Lulu Clogs by Luisa Lange.

After a previous foray into the fashion market with several creations of unique jackets, dresses and necklaces, Luisa has started to design something that she truly loves and wears with passion: clogs. Her fascination for them shows in every single detail of her designs, from rivets, glass grinded pearls to zebra prints and feathers, all with the focus on precision handcraft and the highest quality materials. Her creations are true pieces of art, all made and produced in Germany. The prices are approximately between €240.- – €360.-.

Lulu Clogs

As you know, this summer the clogs have celebrated their big revival and are back in vogue.
I put an outfit together to show you how cool those shoes can be in combination. And the best is they are ultra-comfortable. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact Lulu Clogs or visit the online shop. Worldwide shipping is available.


I already ordered mine and totally adore them. I took some photos to show you how fabulous also the packaging is. It is a true pleasure to receive a pair of Lulu Clogs.

LoL, Sandra
