Using revolutionary techniques of carving the alder wood, Troentorp-Bastad Clogs has introduced the most comfortable and orthopedically sound clogs yet. Why wood? Your foot is made up of many, many different bones, muscles and tendons that are under hundreds of pounds per square inch of pressure and stress. This tremendous pressure creates fatigue that is transmitted through your lower extremities. That's why orthopedists create insoles and orthodics out of material that does not compress, twist or lose it's integrity. Wood has all of these properties and more. Troentorp believes if they can support your feet properly, this fatigue is minimized.
