Cape Clogs was featured in Umgas Magazine with a wonderful write-up about our company’s history. Umgas, known as a “Swedish-American gathering place,” ran an article titled “Cape Clogs Brings Swedish Clogs to the States“.
The article traces the origins of Cape Clogs beginnings, the background of founder Pam Adams, and the philanthropic heart of the company. Here are a few quotes:
All of Cape Clogs’ shoes are handmade in Sweden with designs based on Adams’ input and casual lifestyle. “I collaborate with them and come up with something appealing each year,” she said.
In addition to being attractive, the clogs are lightweight (less than three pounds) and comfortable with orthopedic foot beds made of Northern Europe Alder wood. The company also has alternative semisoft foot beds for the medical and nursing industry.
Adams has sold more than 200,000 pairs of clogs to date. The company has had orders from the U.S., Canada, Japan and Australia, among others.
With her company, Adams wants to make sure she gives back to the community.
Over the past 12 years, Cape Clogs has donated more than $20,000 to several philanthropic nonprofit organizations with which it partners. They include the Ellie Fund, the American Heart Association, Hope in Bloom, the Doug Flutie Foundation and girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. (in conjunction with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute).
Cape Clogs’ biggest partnership has been with QVC for its FFANY Shoes on Sale Benefit in support of breast cancer research and education, with the company donating more than 3,000 pairs of clogs as a valued QVC.COM partner the past nine years.
