Stella McCartney is planting a new idea in her footwear line. The designer will retail the Italian hand-carved wooden clogs sported by models during her spring runway presentation. The wood comes from sustainable forests in Italy and the shoes are handmade with a high-tech hand-held laser that is used to carve the patterns. “We incorporated a lot of carved wood because of the delicacy and weightlessness of the garments,” says McCartney. “I wanted to ground the garments with the shoes.” The clogs will range in price from $695 to $1,295 for more extensive engravings.
