We make every pair of clogs to order, and our current production lead time is 30–45 days

Sample Sale

It's Sample Sale Time!

We are so excited to announce our 3rd annual sample sale event! Hosted just a few doors down from our Dogpatch studio in a huge 3,000 square foot space, we want to bring a fun and beautiful shopping experience to our community (and a shorter line!). The event will feature shopping (of course!!!), a crafting zone where you can try your hand at leather work with our production team (for free!) and a gorgeous lounge created by Shelter Co. We have teamed up with our friends at Baggu to create a cute tote bag (hint: it involves dogs) and will be donating 100% of the proceeds from gently worn clogs to a local charity. Come enjoy free drinks, music from Heart of Gold DJ's, in addition to a Bryr Shop with all their new fall colors and styles.

The event is Saturday, Nov 10th from 11-4pm at Dogpatch WineWorks, 2455 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94107, just a few doors down from our retail location in Dogpatch. Clogs are discounted from 20-60% off.

Here are some more details about the event:

*At our sample sale, we sell our inventory clogs, seconds, returns, samples and prototypes at discounted prices. We only discount our clogs once a year, and discounts are between 20-60% off regular retail.

* There is a limit of five (5) clogs per person from 11am-2pm. After 2 pm, all bets are off and there is no limit to how many clogs you may purchase.

*This year we are sharing a free crafting area, where our community can try their hand at crafting and meet the production team. Guests are welcome to take their creations home with them.

*We will be raising money for San Francisco SafeHouse through the sale of gently worn clogs and tote bags. 100% of the proceeds of the gently worn clog sales will be donated. Last year we donated over $4000 to Compass Family Services and we are excited to raise money for another excellent non-profit doing important work in the Bay Area. If you'd like to donate your gently used clogs and receive $20 in Bryr-cash, please donate at the studio before the event. The deadline for dropping clogs off at our Studio is Friday, November 9th at 6:30 pm. 

*We are working with our friends at Baggu to design a special tote bag just for the event, and we'll be donating all proceeds from the bags to San Francisco SafeHouse. More to come on that collab soon!

*We're teaming up with our friends at Shelter Co. to create a beautiful shopping experience!

*Heart of Gold DJ's will be spinning tunes and free wine and drinks served.

*This year, we're excited to have a shop-within-a-shop, and we'll be building a Bryr shop within the space for those who want to order made-to-order clogs.


Frequently Asked Questions 

When and where is the event?

The event is Saturday, Nov 10th from 11-4pm at Dogpatch WineWorks, 2455 3rd St, San Francisco, CA 94107, just a few doors down from our retail location in Dogpatch. Clogs are discounted from 20-60% off.

What time do doors open?

Doors open at 11am sharp!

What exactly is a sample sale?

A sample sale is, typically, an in-person event that manufactures hold to clear out excess inventory, old styles, factory seconds or cosmetically defective (but still perfectly usable) pieces. In our case, the Bryr Sample Sale means you get deep discounts on like-new inventory, shop samples, prototypes and seconds. It's great.

Will there be an online sample sale?

The reason we do not put our sample sale online is that most of what we are selling are not perfect. Instead, the clogs are seconds, floor samples, returns, prototypes and samples. We feel it's very important that you see the clogs in person and make the decision yourself. As we're able to offer deep discounts on these pieces, photographing and describing all the unique bits and pieces of the clogs would negate that great deal we're able to pass on. As sample sale clogs are final sale, we want to be sure you are totally happy with your purchase!

Will I be able to order made-to-order clogs at the event?

Yes! This year, we have added a store-within-a-store, so you will be able to order clogs 

Will your 2331 3rd Street studio be open to the public during the event?

Yes! Our studio at 2331 3rd Street will be open for limited hours on Saturday, November 10th during our sample sale. Please note, there will be no sample sale clogs available at our studio location, but we welcome you into our space to get fitted and place an order for your perfect clog. 

Can you further explain your pricing breakdown?

Sure! Below is a breakdown. Please note, all clogs will be labeled with their pricing and sale is final. 

20% off - Perfect clogs from inventory. Lucky you!

30% off - Shop samples: These are the shoes that have been in our storefront. They've never been worn outside, but they have been tried on. They may show signs of slight wear with some faded leathers. 

40% off - Seconds and older samples: These are shoes are nearly perfect, but may have an irregular leather grain here or there, a double staple or a scratch. The integrity of the clog is fully intact, but there are slight cosmetic defects. 40% off clogs also include our older samples, which means you could get some colors we never released!

60% off - Irregular samples: Irregular clogs are more heavily discounted because their cosmetic defects are much more visible. Clogs priced at 60% off may have mismatched bases, blemishes in the leather, wrinkles or uneven cuts. They're still perfectly wearable, and dare we say, awesome.

70% off - Gently worn clogs: These are clogs from our community that have been lightly worn. We will be donating 100% of proceeds from gently worn clogs will be donated to the fantastic folks at San Francisco SafeHouse. If you would like to donate your gently used Bryr clogs, please drop them off at the studio on or before November 9th.

What's up with the line?

We so appreciate everyone coming out, and we want you to be as comfortable as possible! This year we have tripled the size of the space, which we hope will minimize the line length and wait-time. That said, we expect there will still be a line.  See some of the photos below of what people did last year to make the line more fun - we hope you can enjoy yourself and make new friends. 

Will you have a full size run?

We do have clogs available in every size, but we cannot guarantee that your size will be available throughout the day. We will be announcing as sizes sell out on our Instagram stories, so be sure to check in there!

How many clogs in X size will you have?

We will not be releasing information on sizing and style availability, sorry! Rest assured, we have samples in each and every size, but some will sell out more quickly than others.

Can you return sample sale clogs?

Nope! All sales are final. 

Will you accept cash?

We do not, but we accept all major credit cards and debit cards. 

Can you use a gift card?

You may! Please present your gift card when you check out and we'll take care of you.

Is your space handicap accessible? Are there bathrooms?

Absolutely and absolutely. 

May I bring my bag/stroller/grandmother?

All family members are welcome, but please note that the lines will be on the sidewalk and space will be tight inside. As such, it might not be the best environment for a double stroller, but we will do our best to accommodate.

May I bring my very well behaved dog or cat inside?

We happily allow service animals inside of the sale, but for all others, we kindly ask you leave them outside with a friend.

How do we get to Dogpatch?

If you're on public transportation, we are right off the KT line as well as the 48 and 22 busses. If you're driving, the address is 2455 3rd Street. 

Is there parking?
Parking is incredibly limited in the Dogpatch, so please plan ahead as we will not be offering parking for this event. There are paid lots behind the building on Illinois Street as well as street parking throughout the area. 
Are you guys as excited as we are?
Hell, yes we are!
