As summer dwindled away, I knew I couldn’t keep defaulting to my slides for a quick out-of-the-house shoe. Most of my fall and winter shoes are heeled boots and mules or platform loafers, which I loved to wear out and about... before 2020 hit. When it comes to shoe shopping, I typically do loads of searching to try and find exactly what I’m envisioning, and sometimes that means I don’t buy any shoes at all.
I needed something that I could wear with or without socks, in the rain, mud, and wind, whether I’m running errands or taking a road trip. And boom, there it was: the Merrell Juno Clog, a sleek, no frills, black leather clog with a solid, flat sole.

There’s likely a fitting Carrie Bradshaw quote I could use to describe my moment of shoe bliss — that feeling of finding the perfect pair. Since the day they arrived at my doorstep, I have not worn another pair of shoes.
Merrell is known for quality shoes that withstand most outdoor conditions, and the plus side of these is that they feel like a nice hard-bottom slipper you can wear inside, too. They're the ideal fall and winter version of a summer slide. The toe is less squared than a Birkenstock and the leather material gives it a sleek look. I honestly couldn’t be happier with the decision to purchase these; I feel like I won the shoe search lottery.
