Slosh puppies



Tread fancy, friend — Salomon’s snowclogs are handsome suede shoes made for much more than arctic trekking. These futuristic-looking slip-ons bottom out with undulating grooves on the soul, pardon me — sole — of the shoe. Thinsulate lining webs the interior walls, enveloping your toes in warmth during low temperatures. Salomon swears that these soft clogs are great to slide into post ski-run. But they are definitely multifunctional. It’s entirely sensible to wear these waterproof low-tops while shoveling the sidewalk or wading through gasoline-slurpy muck during club-hopping. The shoes come in pond, cargo, moutard and black for women; drab, pond and black are available for men. Snowclogs are on sale for $70 at Moosejaw retail stores in the Detroit metro area. Call the Birmingham store at 248-203-7777.
