Leather Klogs, Kravings and ZenKomfort
Klogs Footbeds - This KLOGS style is designed with a deep heel cup and comes with a removable footbed to accommodate most orthotics and arch support inserts.
Klogs Anti-Slip - Anyone can say their clog is slip resistant, but Klogs wanted proof. Slip resistance tests were carried out by an independent leading research and technology organization for the footwear industry. All KLOGS-USA & KLOGS-Lite styles were tested for slip resistance against the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F489-96 standard using the James machine (the James method is the test recognized by the U.S. Postal Service). Testing was conducted under dry, wet, and oily surface conditions using red quarry tile. The results? KLOGS-USA & KLOGS-Lite exceeded the standards in workplace environments resembling these conditions.
Klogs, Kravings and ZenKomfort are designed with outsoles and footbeds made from a proprietary polyurethane formula that provides exceptional shock absorption and superior energy return. You should not experience a "break-in" period with any of the styles as the footbeds immediately mold to your foot.
The Klogs parent company has been in the business of supplying shoe components to the footwear industry for over 40 years. When their customers started taking their business off-shore, they were faced with the possibility of lay-offs. Instead, they decided to take a risk in creating a new footwear brand of their own that would be manufactured in the USA. They started their brand KLOGS® - USA in 1999 to keep their American company operating and to be able to employ American workers.
After several years and some success, their customers started asking for a larger variety of styles. Unfortunately, there are very few shoe factories left in the US and the few that are around only make styles for their own brands or are simply too expensive to allow Klogs to deliver a quality product at a price the average consumer can afford. They decided to meet the demands of their customers by outsourcing their leather line to China. The good news is that with the addition of the leather Klog line, and Kravings by Klogs line their business has grown and they have been able to hire more Americans at their Missouri location.
