I spend a lot of time staying at home, because I work from home. I like to play dress up whenever I need to run errands or am out for a night out with my husband (because I don’t get out that often). I am a big fan of wedges because they make my short legs look longer and leaner and I feel very feminine when I wear them. Plus, they really match with any outfit, whether it be a dress or a skirt or jeans and a shirt. I
shrieked like a little girl when I opened my new box of Rio Grande Wedges from Ugglebo. All of the clogs are handmade in Sweden. The Rio Grande Wedges are available in two colors: Red and Purple Ash. The wedges have a heel height of 4.1″ and feature a Spanish pine wood bottom with nubuc leather upper.
The Rio Grande Wedges are normally $179 online, but, right now, they are on sale for only $116.35 (that’s over $62 in savings!). Trust me, these wedges are worth the price! They are cute, stylish and super comfortable. The soft purple ash color is the perfect color to rock out in any season and matches with almost any other color that you want to wear.
I am normally a size 7-7.5 in US shoe sizes and I received the size 38 shoe from Ugglebo, which, is supposed to be comparable to a US 7.5-8. As you can see in the pictures below, these wedges fit me perfectly, so, I would honestly say that they run a little small. I would plan on ordering a size bigger than what you normally wear.
The leather on the wedges is very soft and is stapled onto the sides of the wood bottoms, to give these shoes a classic look. The leather straps are adjustable so that you can walk in comfort and the edge of the strap features the Owl Logo imprint, which, is actually very cute! I love my new wedges and can’t wait until they are fully broken in so that I can wear them everywhere I go!
ABOUT UGGLEBO (from their website):
Ugglebo Clogs was founded in 1965 as a small, family-run factory.
In a charming Swedish town just off the coast of the Baltic Sea, our founder Sven Carlsson called upon his skills and passion from years of clog making at the largest clog maker in Sweden to transform leather and wood into elegant, fashionable and comfortable wood clogs for women.
He called these Swedish clogs Ugglebo Toffeln; “Ugglebo” means owl’s nest in Swedish and “Toffeln” is the Swedish word for clogs.
Today, the same time-honored techniques are used to craft our superior Swedish clogs for women, which are created in the same factory where it all started over 45 years ago.
Sven’s son Christer joined the team in 1969 and remains head clog master to this day. With Christer’s help Ugglebo has remained true both to the craftsmanship ideal we were founded upon as well as reinventing our classic styles with the addition of many new and trendy versions to our beautiful collections.
