I love these! I can't fit into all Hasbeens but the fact that these are my 3rd pair should say something. The green is GORGEOUS and although they take some wearing in, they look cute and are always the sandals I can wear all day to work, and i'm on my feet all day!

I love these shoes. I have received lots of compliments. They are super cute and comfortable. They did not require the big break-in period that other reviews described. They are slightly narrow in toe area.

The hip style and mission of these shoes are on point, without question, but in person, the shoes fall flat. I'm not so bothered by the clonking noise of the unbending wooden sole as I couldn't stand--even for a second--the screeching of leather on leather in the toe pieces. Maybe it goes away with time and weathering, but I'm not taking the chance or wasting the time. If you're not afraid of making a clonking, creaking entrance and exit into the room, these shoes are for you!

These shoes need to be broken in before you fall in love. When I first got them, I tried to go on a short walk, but the leather was so stiff that my feet hurt immediately. I did some research, and applied olive oil to the inside of the straps where it hurt. I wore them at home with thick socks for several hours while the oil softened the leather, and the difference was amazing! Now these shoes are super comfy, and extremely cute. I get tons of compliments. I highly recommend these, but do be aware that the break in process is different than most shoes.

These shoes are super short. For me it was not the width what created a problem, and I do have wide feet. They are hard to get into because they are rigid and narrow. However, they are not the sizes that are advertised here. A 40 is not a 10 but a 9 and it shows because they are very short.

These shoes are adorable and not easy to break in. The sole doesn't bend so the leather is that much more tough on your feet. Don't buy them intending on wearing them on your vacation right away, they will require short wears in order to become your own, and during those short wears its best to wear socks with them and bring back up shoes. They are worth the trouble! My foot is medium in width and these are a bit narrow foe me, but clogs vary and I know the leather will accommodate eventually. These are beautifully made clogs in a classic design that will last and last.

I thought I was going to die when I tried them on at home. How a shoe that costs as much as these babies do can hurt SO FREAKING much is beyond me. If I am willing to pay this much for a pair of shoes, they should be comfortable, right? The shoe is made of wood, so I was ready for that, but the leather is super hard, thick, and stiff. I went on the internet to see how I was supposed to break them in (I bought a colored pair, so olive oil is NOT recommended), people reported the break-in period to be MONTHS. I need shoes RIGHT NOW. I'm so conflicted (and lazy)- why should I have to work so hard for great shoes? I am currently wearing them with socks on, but I just don't know- I will probably be sending these back.

They take a bit of getting used to, but I really like them! You just have to be ready to walk on wood and there isn't much give in the straps. I wouldn't want to wear them walking around for hours, but at work, or similar is fine.

Rather pretty, as clogs go, but wooden footbed is not as comfy as softer footbeds in Dansko clogs, for example. Also, my foot is between a medium and wide width, and this was definitely too narrow.

These were very narrow on me, but the length was true to size I am a 9.5/10 (closer to a 10) and the size 40 fit perfectly. The leather looks high quality and I could tell that they would be very comfortable once broken in, however, my foot looked awful spilling over the sides and I'm sure it would have hurt after a few hours. I am sad that I may have to write off this company completely if all their shoes run this narrow.

They are exquisite, but like all Swedish Hasbeens, they take some breaking in. For my teenage daughter, this was basically a non-issue, but for me - with 40-something year old feet, it took a little while to not pinch the tender, worn out spots. We have the red, and I love the black stitching detail on the top. But we both wear these shoes now, and they're gorgeous. People always ask me, and her, about them.

I absolutely love these shoes! I have received so many compliments on them. The leather is a little tough, but it only took a few days to break them in. They look great with jeans and skirts and dresses.

These shoes cut my toes so badly even with moleskin that I am afraid to wear them again even after filing the sharp edges of the leather down. It's a shame because that are really cute but I don't think they are worth the loss of blood!

Like people say, these are HARD to break in. But they fit my feet really well (I have a really standard foot, so I'm lucky in that regard!) and they are SUPER cute, so I was determined to make them work. I wore them a lot, at first just a few hours a day and worked my way up, and I used some anti-chafing stick (that I got in a running shop!) around the straps. After a while. I think 6-8 weeks. I was finally comfy in my clogs! One thing I love about this shoe is, despite the heavy looking wooden sole, they are extremely lightweight. I was expecting loud clomping but they are so quiet that I wear them to work, in a library!

Great sandal! I usually wear a size 9 and chose the size 40 in these because I like to have a little wiggle room in my shoes. I had read other reviews saying they are hard to break in. I haven't had a problem - possibly because they weren't really tight to begin with. I wore them around the house with socks for a while before going barefoot. Haven't gotten a single blister. I also rubbed olive oil on the leather to darken and condition them. Now, waiting for the weather to cooperate so I can wear them more often.

Cute and sassy! Look great with jeans or a skirt. The nubuck starts out very stiff and quite tight so breaking them in before going on a long walk is recommended. I usually wear between 8 - 8.5. The 8.5 (size 39) did it for me. My feet are narrow and the 8.5s were still tight so someone with a wider foot might need a larger size.

Wanted to love these cute clog booties since, they are so hip this year but the side zipper killed my right ankle. I will continue my search for newer style Hasbeens!

These are very cute shoes and I so wished I could keep them; however, the back strap rubs the heel immediately which within an hour or so would rub a blister! They are also wooden soled so they are very "clunky." Had to go back!

Because of all the reviews, I was worried that these shoes wouldn't fit and they'd be too narrow. But they actually fit very well. For the price, the ankle straps could be so much more comfortable if they "doubled" the inside, that is, make the inside straps match the outside. I am breaking them in with socks, but very happy overall.

These are adorable shoes. The only issue is that the leather seemed to gape. It did not fit well in the ankle or toe. The footbed was perfect width and length. I would have loved these shoes if they did not make me look like I was wearing shoes that were two sizes too big. I do have very narrow ankles so they might be sized right for standard women.

These shoes are high quality, immediately comfortable, and my somewhat wide foot slipped into them easily - I felt no need for a break-in period. I have been coveting them for months. But I just didn't like the way they looked on my feet. So, I'll be returning them. I'm sure on others they look awesome, but my short legs seemed a little stumpy. They seemed almost more 40s than 70s. Oh, I wear a 7.5 and got the 38, and they fit perfectly.
