These are narrow! A graceful delicate clog! My feet are narrow and even 'AA' width American shoes are often too wide for me but these are perfect.

I LOVE Swedish has-beens and have two other pair. These are amazing style, but not as nearly comfortable as the first two pair. They are much smaller and tighter. Any suggestions to loosen the toe area would be greatly appreciated.

These have taken a bit of braking in due to the stiff leather, but the sole is very comfortable if you like a wooden heel (I do). They have a darling reto look and I've been complimented each time I've worn the.

I love this shoe though the back heel strap falls and will not tighten with the side strap. I bought a pair a 6 P.M. and had to return them because of the heel strap. They had no more left so I ordered a pair from Amazon and the same thing happened. I have the Savannahs and they fit fine. The yellow is so vibrant and I love the shoe except can't wear it.

These are my new favorite shoes! I absolutely love them! People are literally stopping me on the street to compliment my shoes. I usually wear an 8.5-9 and the 39 fits perfectly. The leather was a little tight at first, but after just a few wears I could feel it loosen up. An added bonus is that they are the most comfortable shoes with heels that I own!

These shoes are great. Sexy and cute. True to size. Be patient with the break in period. They are very hard at first but soften fairly quickly. I wore them with plastic bags over socks around the house at first. A little trick I learned when I sold shoes. Love Sweedish a Hasbeens. Patrice.

These are great clogs, and I consider myself a clog aficionado. I hesitated buying this brand as I was pretty happy with Svens and vintage finds, but I could not resist this sale. A lot of reviews here and elsewhere talk about how rigid and tight these are, but I have made mine comfortable in just an hour or so: took them out of the box, tried them on to find the tight/hard spots, slathered both sides of leather with saddle soap then wiped the leather down with a wet wash cloth, put on thick socks and then the shoes, walk around (or as I did, sit and wiggle your toes around every few minutes) for about an hour. Viola! Comfortable, fitting my feet already, and ready to go. Now... do I go for the red, too?

I wrote an earlier review that began with, Due to so many mixed reviews; but I wanted to clarify something since I've been wearing them for over a week now. My foot width at my instep is about 3 inches and 3.4ths wide; that is very wide. I do like the Braided Sky Highs but I realized that they vary in form thru looking at images of them on Google (there's either more toe coverage or less) so they fit differently depending on what shoes you happen to get, NOT because you have different feet! If you look at the various close-ups on Google you'll see what I mean. One woman has complete coverage while another is barely able to squeeze her pinky toe in and you'll see that it's all because the leather is attached at different points of the instep, either an inch higher up the wood or directly above the instep. So there's either less or more coverage and in my case I have less. This is a bit disappointing since I was inspired to purchase the Braided Sky Highs from images showing more coverage. I just got a pair of the Fredricas and they fit so unbelievably better and don't show any pinky toe cleavage, yay! This is because the leather is attached higher up the instep rather than directly above. Another bonus is I won't even have to stretch them out, no socks and a blow dryer for these! This explains the vast contradictions in reviews to me, and I hope it helps those who feel like a wicked step sister alienated from all the Cinderella stories, realize it's not their big feet ruining it for them. You can have the perfect fit with Swedish Hasbeens, if you find the right variation.

I have very wide, unmanageable feet and have problems wearing almost all heels, so needless to say, my expectations were low. But when these arrived, I tried them on and they fit perfectly. They didn't seem like they would be very comfortable, and the first wear was a bit stiff, but after that they were totally fine...I just love them. I usually wear an 8 and went with a 38, based on reviews on the SH website.

I really want to love these shoes, but the quality is just horrible. I ordered the peep toe high in nature, and after two wears cracks started forming in the right heel. I have a desk job, and was sitting by the computer all day. Those two wears probably involved a maximum of two hours of walking. I weigh 110 pounds and wear size 36. I couldn't understand what caused the cracks since I couldn't recall the wooden heels hit the stairs or pavement. I thought I got a defective shoe so I exchanged for a brand new pair. After wearing them for three days (office work all day), I just noticed a crack started developing on the left heel! I don't know what I could have done to cause this. Maybe these shoes are not made for people to walk in, but again I barely wore them at all. I also ordered peep toe super high in cognac from a different online store. After a few wears I noticed that 3 staples were popping out. I took the shoe to my cobbler, and he told me these shoes are cheaply made. He hammered the loose staples down, but after half day they were popping out again. My cobbler said the only way to fix this was to put special nails between the leather and the wood. After 3 pairs of Swedish Hasbeens, I won't buy any shoes from them again. The style is very cute, but the quality is just terrible. I won't waste my money any more.

I love the style and they are extremely comfortable to stand in, right out of the box. What I don't see mentioned in the reviews is that they are odd to walk in- what I can only describe as a "clickety- clomp" action.

They are too wide for my feet. I am a size 6.5 and ordered size 6 (36). There was a lot of extra room around my feet. The back strap was loose too I would have to punch an extra hole to make them fit. The shoes are made with nice leather and it would take sometime to break in. I will have to return them. I have not given up on Swedish Hasbeens yet. I will try another style.

These are not like Dansko clogs, they will stretch and mold to your foot over time and do take a break-in period. When they first arrived (I am a solid size 9) I thought way too narrow. I decided to keep them, used my husband's shoe horn to stretch it a little, wore them around the house, then out, and they have slowly worked into a perfect fit on my foot versus a chunky clog. Give the Swedes a chance, it is worth it!

I wear a US size 9½ - 10, and I bought these in a 41. I have average width feet with average arch height. The width of the shoes were perfect for me. What I found interesting is the fact that the strap seems to be designed for someone with disproportionately large ankles when compared to the width of their feet. I had to use the tightest hole on the strap, and it is still a little loose. I have four styles of Hasbeens, and they all seem to fit differently. Sizing is inconsistent across the four styles as far as width goes. I would say if you do not have wide feet, give these a try. They are cute and reasonably comfortable for this type of shoe. If you have wide feet and high arches, I would not bother.

Due to so many mixed reviews I was worried these wouldn't fit. But they do and I'm so happy with my first pair of Swedish Hasbeens! I have a very wide, size 8 feet with long toes (I wear an 8.5 in Jeffrey Campbells but his shoes are known to run small). My instep is approximately 3 inches and wide. I purchased the size 38. They are very light and because of the platform, they do not feel like I'm wearing sky high but more like 2.5 heels. They are fantastic for adding height without killing your feet or lower back. The shoes in person look very narrow but I fit into them. The Swedish Hasbeens site tells you what to expect: the leather will soften and stretch with wear and one day fit your feet like a glove. So you should expect them to fit a tad uncomfortably in the beginning. Mine are a little tight at the instep and will need to be stretched. I plan on doing that around the house with socks on. I first purchased these from Urban Outfitters.com, they listed them in half sizes only so I went with the 8.5 (turned out to be size 39) and they were way too big, leaving about an inch or more where my heel should be. I then went to the Swedish Hasbeens US site and found their size chart. If you are unsure about what size you should order, I highly recommend using it. This will give you exact measurements in inches and centimeters to help you choose the proper size.

I absolutely love this style, and they look great on my feet. I get a lot of compliments on them. However, since they're made with a solid wooden platform and have no cushioning or flex in the shoe, my feet get tired if wearing these all day. I made the mistake of ordering a size down after reading the reviews, and they're essentially too small for me but it was too late to return them so I did a little creative stretching of the leather and they're wearable. I found they run narrow (even for not being my proper size). Definitely order your actual size in these cuties!

I'm a perfect 40 in Hasbeens (size 9.5 in other brands), and absolutely adore this style. In Nature, it would have surely become a staple neutral shoe for me. Unfortunately the toe box was far too roomy (especially on the right...not sure if this was a construction issue or not) and ballooned out too much from my toes. I worry that in a smaller size, the length wouldn't be there. The Peep Toe Super High, while less visually appealing to me, has a better all around fit and feels more balanced while walking thanks to its platform/heel height ratio. As usual, the Zappos return policy meant I could try on as many pairs as I needed to find the right fit. (Yay!) I love the look and feel and quality of Hasbeens, and will likely be back for more in the fall.

This shoe is super cute! And as a lifetime clog lover, I was super excited about them. However, I have to return them. They are very narrow compared to other clogs. If your feet feel snug in Dansko's or Troentorp Clogs, these will be too skinny for you.

I just received my blue clogs today (one day after purchase, yea Zappos!). Like most of the reviewers state, they are narrow. I am an almost size 7, bigger than a 6.5, but because I have slightly narrow feet, often not a true 7. The size 37 fits me perfectly. They fit snug, but not tight. The leather is stiff, but not in a bad way. It is obvious this type of leather will mold to the foot, versus stretching out. Now the best part, they make your feet look small! I am 48 and at the age where I am not ready to look matronly and "comfortable." My 17 year old and her friends just tried on my new shoes and they want a pair as well. The blue is a beautiful, dusty denim color. I am very happy with this purchase.

Cute shoe, but a 41 is not a size 11 even when the size chart says it is. Runs small if anything. I wish Zappos had more options for wooden soled clogs.
