I wear trousers socks with clogs in the fall and winter. I think it would look strange to have bare heels in cold weather.

I'm not sure if it's "correct" or not, but I do!

I totally agree it looks strange. If you look at some of the videos the models look odd to me.

Correct or not - I do - trouser socks also - I do not like cold feet

I wear my black patent dansko clogs a lot and seldom, if ever, wear socks. I'm just not a sock person but you certainly could wear them!

I do all the time---IMO (non fashionista) it looks like kind of funky, fun and carefree!!!

I wear socks with my clogs all fall and winter. As long as your pants/jeans are long enough, it looks fine. What...have the fashionistas dictated that we should wear bare feet with our clogs in 20 degree weather too?
Good grief. Put your socks on! :-)

Yup! Especially in the Fall/Winter...just remember to pair dark colored clogs with dark colored socks and light colored clogs with light or "nude" socks.
No black clogs with white socks. Unless you're making the black and white statement head to toe, that IS a leeetle bit dorky. ;)

Guess I am a dork. Because I sure was planning on putting those white socks on. Anyone else?:O

Of course you can wear socks, tights or stockings with clogs or mules.
As you would do with any shoes, be careful with the color. No white socks unless you wear white clogs, which I doubt you would do in summer. Keep your white socks for snickers.

Growing up we use to say, "white socks are neat, but not on your feet". I cannot bring myself to wear white socks other than white sneaker socks. (half socks)

White socks with white tennis shoes, only, PLEASE! Wear ivory or light trouser socks with your light-colored clogs, dark socks with your dark clogs.....think boots!
IMHO

How can you not? Don't your feet get cold without socks? Assuming you live in a cold climate, of course.

White socks with clogs are a definite no-no. Wear dark colored socks with dark shoes, lighter socks with light shoes. Whites only with sneaks. And for pete's sake don't go out in freezing weather with NO socks or stockings. That just makes you look like you don't know how cold it is......

i dont care for the look myself so i dont wear socks with clogs or mules (my heels dont get cold).... but if you like the look or need to keep your feet warm then by all means, pretty much anything goes these days.

:^O Yes Red you know there is a rule for everything and the fashion police will arrest you if you wear socks!!;-):^O
Yes I wear socks with my clogs and mules but only if the socks do not show-- I usually only wear clogs or mules when it is warm enough to go without socks. However I bought a cute pair of fur lined clogs and they are so warm, I have worn those this winter with a pair of black Liz Claiborne thin socks and you can't even tell I have socks on unless you look, lol. I wore these to physical therapy the other day with a pair of black AT Loft yoga pants and was very comfy.
However I never ever wear white socks with anything unless I am going to the gym or walking.

Most of my clogs are heavier with more of a boot-like appearance from the front so, yes, I wear socks with them--socks that match in color. They would look really odd with bare feet. But, with my mules (backless shoes), I wear them barefoot or with matching tights when it is really cold because they are more dress up.

Yes! I always wear nice wool socks in the winter with my mules. I like a nice argyle wool and they keep my feet nice and warm but I must say at this time of the year, boots get my vote. Weather has been too snowy and yucky for mules.

I do as long as my pants are long enough.
