I love Swedish Hasbeens in general, but the way the straps are at the top doesn't look right. It's like one of them on each side is sticking out. Looks like a design flaw. They are going back.

I'm a wedding photographer and I wanted a dressy black sandal with arch support, a moderate but substantial heel, comfortable to wear for hours, stylish and easy to walk in. These meet all of the above! I was able to wear these 6 hours straight on my feet at a recent wedding. They look cute with jeans, dresses and instantly add class and character to an outfit. I'm surprised by how comfortable they are. Your feet stay cool because of the wood, too. My only complaint is that the wood has already scratched from wearing them outdoors. Probably because I walk on gravel and rocks and rough terrain when I'm photographing. (Not the ideal environment for these.) But, considering you have to be eye level with them to see the scratches, it's not a big deal.

I am in LOVE with these clogs! I have had them for a full year now and the leather has darkened up a bit and everyday i get a compliment on them. They are super comfortable and can we dressed up or down. If you are not used to wearing clogs walking at first is slightly awkward.

I love the look of these sandals but I have to agree with other commenters...the leather is really stiff. As soon as I put them on...and they fit well, I knew the front area at the widest part of my foot would rub against the hard leather. Did not want to suffer blisters. I ended up buying a pair of Tom's sandals and love them. The leather is really soft and no blisters...and really comfy. Maybe Swedish Hasbeens may make their leather softer someday but until then...I will be wary about buying shoes from them. LOVE their styles though...classics!

Gorgeous booties, but way too narrow for me. The leather is quite stiff, but I'm sure would age beautifully with wear like my other Hasbeens.

Wanted to add to previous review. The olive oil does darken the natural leather. Not a bad color, it is a beautiful saddle like color. But if you want to keep natural color protect with Dr Martens wonder balsam. You can buy it here. So now I have 2 of the same shoe in 4 different colors. Black, natural, & saddle (saddle color thanks to olive oil). Enjoy your hasbeens clogs! I sure am!

Love. If you are a clog lover, you gotta have this brand. Yes, you do need to break them in. But put on heavy socks & wear around the house about 3 days. This is because this is very quality thick leather. You will get many years wear out of these. These shoes are just so bohemian. If you don't live bohemian, then don't buy this brand. As for sizing I have med foot & always wear size five in all upscale brands. This brand I wear size 6. I'm so in love with these clogs. My only con is when you apply olive oil, to treat leather it does darken color somewhat. And I really wanted that natural color to stay. Oh well. I still love enough to maybe buy another & not treat leather.

It's my first pair of Hasbeens. I ordered the natural and the black and went with the black. I have mid-wide feet, not much of an arch, and these surprisingly fit fine. I am walking around in them at home to break them in a bit although it's probably not necessary. The leather is a little stiff and I'm concerned the toe area might rub a bit. I am normally a 6/5 - 7 and I have the 36 and they fit perfectly. On a side note, the video of this shoe has an error in it - the model is wearing the Peep Toe High on one foot and the other foot is wearing the Peep Toe Super High.

These will not leave my feet this summer. Beautiful, sturdy and comfortable. So far I have not had any problems with blisters from the leather being too stiff, but perhaps that is because I have very slender feet and there is no need to stretch them out/break them in. My first pair of clogs and I am extremely happy with them!

These are comfortable right out of the box. I had no real breaking in period as I wore them to work, out shopping and around the house with no issues. I did treat the natural leather with olive oil to help it resist staining. I'm very happy with these shoes and will not hesitate to try other Swedish Hasbeens styles.

These are extremely comfortable once they are broken in. I bought a shoe stretcher and wore bandaids for the first week of wearing. I was caught in the rain and they got wet but immediately molded to my foot. I love them and get compliments every time I wear them!

I love these shoes! I have had them for well over two months now and I am still getting regular complements. They are prefect for work and follow my office's dress code while being comfy enough more me to walk all day during a conference. If they feel tight when you first get them it is because they will stretch out. I started out wearing them on the first notch and have gone up two more notches since then. I have gotten more than my money's worth of use with these shoes.

These are so cute. But, they run a full size smaller--my toes jammed to the end of the shoe--and they are a bit on the narrow side--but, that is good for my foot. I am reordering in a larger size. If you want cute and comfy for a pretty tall shoe-- this is it. And, it is nice for city walking because your toes don't get stepped on when riding public transit--but, still sandal like shoe--nice and airy.

Great shoe! Really cute and surprisingly comfortable. The leather squeaks a bit at first (husband says it sounds like I'm wearing a new baseball glove) but that went away after the first day. I usually wear a 9.5 and the 40's were just barely big-enough. They feel fine, but I wish they had the 41's I could have tried.

I'm in love with shoes! I ordered the neutral color first, with the notion that they were more versatile, but the orange ones kept calling my name, so I exchanged them. immediately. They are perfectly groovy/70's and modern at the same time. I smile every time I put them on. I'm typically a 7 1/2, but the 7 fits great-no breaking in time!

These are hellish. Cute as a button, but if you have just slightly wide feet, you will think you are dying. I tried them out with thin socks around the house two or three times. Unbearable. I'm a Dansko and Sanita girl, so I am spoiled by comfort. That said, if you are narrower, maybe they could work for you. I am pretty sure the footbed is also awful - maybe okay for younger feet than mine (which are not terribly old, but old enough to be a little particular). I found the length to be true to size - I'm usually a 9 or 39 in a closed toe shoe/clog/birki and was a miserable 39 in these. They are adorable though.

These would have been my 6th pair of Swedish Hasbeens, so I'm very familiar with their sizing. I ordered a 37 (because I have 5 others in 37 that fit perfect) and these felt a full size smaller. My heel hung off the back in a major way. Really sad to send these back. Wish Zappos had them in a 38 but they do not. Super sad face!

I've been wanting these shoes forever! Finally ordered them and I was so excited...unfortunately, only one fits well. The toe box squeezes my right foot in a really painful way, and so sadly they must go back.

Love these! I was a bit hesitant to order wooden shoes, but I was very glad I did and they are totally worth the money. They took a bit of getting used to since you walk flat footed, but they go with everything and I wore them all summer long. They can be dressed up or worn with a pair of jeans and dressed down. Win, Win!

I ordered a higher-heeled pair of Hasbeens in natural leather to try for comparison, both size 38 (I wear 7.5-8 normally). These fit fine in the toe box and along the length of footbed, and the leather was much softer than the other pair. Might have needed some break-in but that would've been manageable. The design over the toe was prettier in person, and the strap around the ankle fit well. As others have mentioned, the heel is actually a bit too low for this type of sole -- instead of getting a rocking walking motion, you wind up kind of clomping around. I'm not exactly sure why, just something about the shaping makes these harder to walk in than similar styles of shoes which I've worn before very comfortably. So sad as I love the look!

I ordered a lower-heeled pair of Hasbeens in red leather to try for comparison, both size 38 (I wear 7.5-8 normally). These fit fine in the toe box and along the length of footbed, but there was an odd gap at the back of the heel, and as others have mentioned, the edge of the leather at the ankle strap was too painful to tolerate for the break-in period. Also, the design of the leather over the toe, reminiscent of a buckle, looked a bit too chunky/blocky for my taste, as compared to other Hasbeens designs. The height doesn't feel as high as it looks, which was a plus for me.
