SUSTAINABILITY

There are many benefits to wearing Magnafied clogs. Our wooden soles are made of the finest aspen from Austria. By law they must plant two new trees for every tree harvested. The soles are natural, breathable, and have an organic connection to the earth’s energy, similar to the feeling of walking bare foot or on the beach.


Some beneficial facts:

Wearing clogs helps you to stand straight and allows for an upright posture that is beneficial for your back. Have you ever noticed how doctors, nurses and restaurant workers often wear clogs? This is because they can stay standing for hours with minimal discomfort, as the firm wooden soles keep the feet from compressing and helps the body to stay aligned and upright while standing and walking.

Clogs also offer superior strength and durability - they simply last much longer than average footwear. Most sneakers can be worn for maybe one season and the environmental waste from their manufacture is enormous. The initial investment seems reasonable at the moment of purchase but over time the money and waste quickly adds up.

Perfect for winters, wood is a great insulator and can help stop body heat from escaping through the feet - this makes clogs ideal year-round footwear.

Magnafied clogs are perfect for contouring the feet and are orthopedically designed to fit, this results in comfort and helps stop foot deformation and pain when wearing shoes for a long time.

Clogs are also easy to put on and take off, allowing bare feet to touch the earth more often.

With no laces clogs do not press down on top on the instep as regular shoes do.

The wooden soles absorb perspiration which helps eliminate foot odors.

Clogs are lightweight and durable so your feet will not suffer stress and fatigue from a heavy shoe.

Clog materials are eco-friendly and recyclable.

OUR PRODUCTS

Our factory in Denmark acts as a research lab where the workers bring generations of handcrafting skills and experience to develop new techniques, and where we continually play with and push design limits. One feature that makes the Magnafied design unique (and what took more than two years to develop) is how we attach the upper of our clogs. We use Ferrari glue to bond our fabrics to the leather linings. This glue is so pure and non-toxic you actually can eat it (but don’t!). We have also developed a special sewing machine with Pfaff of Germany for stitching the fabric edges, allowing us to use our own distinct fabrics that give Magnafied clogs a modern, unique look.

THE PROCESS

There is an enormous amount of time and energy in the development of all our raw materials. Here at Magnafied it is very important that our fabrics are not merely materials used to cover the foot but textiles treated with a great deal of thought and respect. We insist on using only those materials that have a history, a purpose, and are produced with decades of experience by technologically advanced mills in the USA, Europe, Japan and other countries.

All Magnafied fabrics tell a story. Our camouflages prints are manufactured by Pencott and are based on patterns designed in the 1940´s by British artist and pacifist Sir Roland Penrose (1900-1984) and by Zoologist Dr. Hugh B. Cott (1900-1987). We use woolen fabric woven with world famous patterns based on Native American motifs and designed by Pendleton, an American company founded in 1863. Everything made by Magnafied is produced on a made-to-order basis in order to minimize waste, stay away from mass production, and to maintain as small an ecological footprint as possible.

"We are driven by our uncompromising pursuit of quality, history, and originality in everything we do."
