FIber Trends Clog with a bumper?
Soooo, I am making the clogs by Fiber Trends. What is the difference between the ones with the bumpers and the ones with out the bumpers? Comfort? Support? Just wondering...

maybe it helps with wear along the edges? i did it in my first pair, but not sure if i will for my dad's christmas pair (i might splurge and get leather soles)

I thought it was to protect your little toesies. I was in a hurry to finish mine, so I didn't want to do any more knitting than I had to and didn't even look into it.

I think the bumper gives them a more "finished" appearance.

HI Astroboy,

I'm sorry if this is the second time I'm replying, but I don't see my thread. I was just asking a friend yesterday (I swear) why nobody but me remembers Astroboy. Where did you find the graphic?
