Peep Toe High

I love this shoe! I originally purchased a size 39 as I typically wear a size 8.5 or 9, but that was too short. The width was perfect. However, I couldn't have my toes hanging out the little peep hole, so I ordered a 40 and it is perfect. The shoes are very comfortable and I can walk in them all day. It really does not feel as if you are wearing a heel at all.

It felt very tight and narrow. It looks like a really well made shoe but I didn't like the stapled detailing on the shoe.

Yes it is good to know that I am a size 8-81/2 and a 39 was just perfect (I did not make the mistake since I am from Europe, I knew it was not a 38). And as the previous reviews I have to say they are very stiff and hard to break in, like a month of wearing them and using a shoe stretcher every night. I do have wide feet, but I tried anyway and I have nearly reached comfort. But what an effort! Why not using a little more souple leather? I hope the makers of these shoes hear about that. Because we love the shoes! I want more but not with this stiff leather.

My 5th pair of Swedish Hasbeens, and my most comfortable pair right out of the box! Interestingly, the strap just didn't have enough holes for my ankles (hadn't encountered this on my other pairs), but a quick additional hole punch solved that, and made them tighter around the back. Like other reviewers said, they're a little squeaky at first, but so what - I want people to notice my cute shoes, lol! Plus, they stopped squeaking after a few wears. My first pair of Swedish Hasbeens has been in regular use for over 5 summers...I wear all of them for work with skirts and dresses, with jeans, so versatile and retro-hip...women of all ages ask me about them all the time. Never had easier shoes to keep looking great - just sanding the heels when they get dirty or scuffed. Amazingly sexy and comfortable...I get compliments on all my pairs, but especially these.

Really bummed - these sandals are adorable but run VERY small!

Love the shoe, but ordered the next size up and the strap was tighter! Don't like the double buckle either

I'm so glad that I finally got these shoes. I have a few pairs of Swedish Hasbeens in the "super high" and "sky high" heights, and was looking for a smaller heel height. These shoes are true to SH sizing. I'm a true 8, and wear a 39 in these. Yes, the leather is super hard and can cut into your foot with each step. To avoid that, I treated the inside of mine with cocoa butter (do it now, and thank me later), and stretched them out with a shoe stretcher for a day. I wore them all day as I ran errands, and they didn't bother me at all. If you're in the fence about getting these, I suggest you go for it. They're a beast to break in, but once you do...giiiiiiiiirl!

Cute, comfortable shoe but ugly color. I ordered the Nature thinking it was a light brown or beige but it is really a boring blonde color that I would never wear. I sent them back.

The most uncomfortable fit ever. Nice, color and style but very, very uncomfortable. Pity-- also the shoes weigh a ton

These run VERY VERY SMALL. I'm usually an 8.5/9, got a 39. I struggled with them for a few months and then a friend who wears a 7/7.5 borrowed them and marveled at how perfectly they fit her. I let her keep them, and bought a new pair — 41! Be warned. These are tiny shoes.

Love these shoes! Not the most practical but beautiful nonetheless. Fit it true to size.

Beautiful weave pattern and the red is a true vibrant RED. High quality materials and good workmanship. The leather will be stiff and tight at first, but wearing them a few times around the house stretched them out enough. The wooden footbed has no padding or bend and is on the narrower side, but they're actually more comfortable than I was expecting (and I have wide feet!). These will never be the shoes I wear for walking tours, but they are super-cute and for parties and errands they're just fine.

Super cute and comfortable! I read the nightmare experiences with breaking Hasbeens in but these must be one of the few styles that do not need breaking in. They squeak but I read that lotion should take care of that issue. Very satisfied!

Hasbeens are notorious for running narrow, so that wasn't a surprise. However - the color definitely surprised me. I ordered the Natural and expected a lighter shade of tan, but these are almost orange or a sienna. They're still super cute, but I'm much more aware of what "naturally grained leather" really means now.

Great clogs! Like all Hasbeens size up. I typically wear a 39, ordered a 40. Perfect.

I love the style of these shoes but I actually expected better quality based on the price and the way they are advertised "made the traditional way", "quality that lasts", "better than any machine made shoes", etc... The first time I walked around in them the black label at the heel started slipping, exposing sticky glue that sticks to my heel and is just plain annoying! The label has continued to slip and slide around and I fear that removing it would just hurt the situation, exposing more sticky glue. Would almost buy another pair, but this is annoying enough to prevent me.

Attractive, but awkward shape to the bottom of the shoe, rock solid wooden foot bed, and hard leather. Not a shoe I want to wear all day in humid summer heat. I didn't even try on the second shoe.

I have hallux limitus (arthritis in the ball of my foot), so for me they are quite comfortable since I don't bend my foot in when I walk in them! They do run a bit small. I wear a 39 in Birkenstocks and Danskos, but the 40 in these fit me just right. A

They are the perfect shoe in every way. Don't have enough great things to say about them. Beautiful, stylish, comfortable, really well made.

Leather is much too stiff with no pliability whatsoever. Makes my regular shoe size too small.
