There are few things that we at the Clog love more than summer foods and summer footwear. Essentially, we really love summer and want to make the most of it while it’s here! So, we combined the two to create a fun quiz. Simply answer some questions about your summer food preferences, and we’ll tell you which type of summer footwear you are and what that says about how you spend your long, sunny days!


  1. What’s your favorite summer fruit?
    1. Berries all the way!
    2. There’s nothin’ like a juicy slice of watermelon!
    3. Stone fruits have my heart!
    4. Do I really have to choose just one?
  2. What’s your favorite picnic location?
    1. Take me to the beach!
    2. The middle of the forest, preferably in the middle of a long hike.
    3. The best viewpoint in town.
    4. I don’t need to go any farther than my own backyard.
  3. How do you prefer to cook your food?
    1. You can’t do anything but grill in the summer!
    2. It’s too hot to cook anything — I’ll stick to making salads.
    3. I can’t remember the last time I actually cooked and didn’t order takeout.
    4. I’ll cook the food whichever way it’s best prepared. 
  4. Which classic fair food would you choose?
    1. I can’t help but try the deep-fried Oreos.
    2. Funnel cake all the way!
    3. Nothing says “fair” like a corn dog.
    4. I’ll take whatever food I see first.
  5. What’s your go-to ice cream order?
    1. I keep it classic with a hot fudge sundae.
    2. Just a scoop of my favorite flavor does the trick.
    3. There’s nothing as refreshing as a good sorbet.
    4. I like to try whatever the month’s special flavor or sundae is. 
  6. What kind of burger do you opt for?
    1. It’s not a burger if it’s not made with beef.
    2. A veggie burger does the trick for me!
    3. I keep it lean with a ground turkey burger.
    4. I’ll stick to a salad, thanks.
    1. Sandals! Whether you choose to wear Birkenstocks, Tevas or Chacos, summer is exclusively sandal season for you. Come fall, you’ll be sporting an intense sandal tan. But that’s OK, no one has to see it as long as you just continue wearing the same pair of sandals and denying that summer has ended!
    2. Hiking boots! Summer, to you, is a time to get outside — and we mean really get outside. Each year brings you on another outdoor adventure, whether it’s at your favorite park or a completely new one. You can count on your sturdy hiking boots to be at your side the entire way and (hopefully) prevent your feet from aching at the end of the day!
    3. Barefoot! It’s too hot in summer to bother your feet by wearing any type of shoes. By the end of the summer, you build up some pretty impressive calluses. It takes the first truly rainy day of fall to get you to put on shoes.
    4. Good ol’ sneakers! Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you need to change up your footwear routine. You keep the same sneakers on your feet year-round, perfect for touring a new city or taking walks around the neighborhood. Your sneakers are ready for you no matter what the occasion is!
