Returning. Loved the way they look, but extremely narrow and small even though I ordered one size up. Sadly have to return.

I love this shoe. Comfortable and stylishly on trend. The heel is a perfect hight. Enough lift without being too high to walk around in all day.

I love Swedish Hasbeens. The Louise is my favorite of the three pairs I have. This is the only pair that I did not have to break in. I can wear these all day and my feet stay comfortable. Surprisingly I can actually do a lot of walking in these as well. I wore them to a concert and stayed out at the bar until closing and my feet stayed happy. These are painful to fall off though...the dangers of clogs are strong with these.

This is a beautiful shoe! I bought these in a lovely tan color. They are very squeaky (still after 3 wears), but my biggest issue is the sensitivity of the leather. I wore them the second day after I got them, a cookie crumb fell on my shoe and in the very short amount of time it was on there a grease stain appeared. Now there is a forever grease stain right on the front of my shoe...would it be asking to much to seal the leather before selling them? A similar thing happened to my friend on the day she bought her hasbeens bringing her the same frustration. It was a waste of my money. Had I known the leather was so sensitive there is no way I would have bought them. It is so infuriating/frustrating to ruin a $200+ shoe on the very first time wearing them.

I ended up ordering both the Swedish Hasbeen Swedish Husband and the Mia wooden clog, size 40 (9.5/10). The obvious difference between them is price. The Mia is about $50 less than the Swedish Husband. The shape of the clog bases seem to be the same, and I mean it’s IDENTICAL. I am sure they must be from the same supplier. Zappos lists the Mia heel as 1-1/2 inch and the SH as 2 inches. That is incorrect. They are both just under 2 inches on the size 40 (9.5/10). The wood is, however, different. Mia uses a darker wood with more visible grain and they are not as smoothly polished as the SH. The leather and cut of the upper is a little different. The leather of both is thick and substantial, but the SH is stiffer and looks “dressier”. The Mia leather is a little more pliable and will probably conform to your foot more. The big difference for me is that the SH comes up a little higher on your foot than the Mia. Only about 3/8”, but it may make one or the other feel better on your foot. Overall, the finish on the Swedish Husband is nicer, but the materials of both seem equivalent. Whichever you choose, I would agree that the US sizes listed run small. But I think it is a conversion thing. I am usually a euro 40, and that was the right size.

This is my second review after returning my first pair for a larger size. These are really beautiful shoes, but unless you have an extremely narrow foot, I just don't know how these will work for anyone. My first pair I could not even get my foot in the shoe. I returned these for the next size up which would normally be huge on my foot. They were too long, but still too narrow. I'm disappointed that they didn't work.

Got what I expected! I wear a 6 and the 36 was a good choice (even though I wear a 37 Birkenstock). I also have high arches and my feet have not been sore. The shoe is stiff but it’s made of wood and leather- so, that’s what you’re getting! The strap across the ankle is cute. I look forward to wearing them with socks.

These shoes are gorgeous, BUT, they are tiny. I'm usually an 8 1/2 or 9 and bought the 39's. I could not get my foot into the shoes. I compared them to 39's in other brands and they are significantly smaller. I'm trying the next size up, but considered going two sizes up.

AWFUL. THE FRONT STRAP, I AGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEWER, IS RATHER SMALL AND TIGHT BUT NOT TOO SMALL FOR ME. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE UNDERSIDE OF IT IS SO ROUGH AND HARD AND SCRATCHY THAT NO ONE COULD WEAR THIS SHOE. HOW IT COULD POSSIBLY BE EXPECTED THAT THIS THING SHOULD LAY ON SOMEONE'S SKIN IS BEYOND ME. RIDICULOUS.

Unfortunately I am a 41 in most shoes but are more like a 38. And the straps are too short to actually buckle. I love the look but they are unwearable

Ugh these are super cute and funky! I like the braided toe strap a lot; adds a little quirky character. I was a little surprised by some roughness on the wooden sole - I didn’t expect to need to sandpaper them before wearing! And they run what feels like a full size large; I normally wear a 6.5 but the 36/6 is a little big on me. But overall a great casual classic, especially on sale!

The T-Strap Hasbeens are so cute, and so far appear well made. A note on the sizing, as that seems to be the number one issue with this brand. I sell shoes for a living, so I’m pretty familiar with EU sizing and just sizing in general... I originally bought the t-straps in brown, and ordered an EU size 38 (which is supposedly a US 8). I measured my foot using the SH size chart on their site. I’m a fairly solid size 8.5, but often size down to an 8 with leather shoes, knowing they will stretch over time...a 9 is always too big for me, and I have a standard width foot, that is slightly slim (but not narrow). The Hasbeens I ordered in a 38, run very small, both in width and length. My foot is at the very tip of the leather toe, and just barely fits on the wooden footbed (my heel is very close to hanging over the back edge). I know leather will definitely stretch, but the footbed is just not long enough. The width of the shoe fits me fine, a bit snug but again the leather will stretch. However, if you have a slightly above average width foot (especially in the forefoot/toe box area), these are going to be very snug. I’d guess these fit closer to a US 7.5 (and might even fit a slightly large size 7 foot). I just ordered another pair in the EU size 39. I think even this larger size could possibly be a bit snug at first, but I plan to wear them with socks to break them in and stretch the leather. They’re surprisingly comfortable and very easy to walk in despite the heels. I have slim ankles, and these fit almost perfectly in that area. But I’d definitely suggest sizing up one full size. If you have a wide foot, you’ll likely need a lot of breaking in of the leather before they’ll fit comfortably, probably even after sizing up. Hope this helps, I know I was super confused as to what size to get, and still am...Gorgeous shoes though!

I love these shoes. Usually a 35 but the 36 fits perfectly! Great bright color too:)

Very cute shoe. I am between sizes and ordered up a half size which is a little too big but I am keeping them. They look great with pants and dresses. Super happy with them.

Loved the style but sadly these were way too big for me. Depending on the shoe manufacturer--and darn it, why aren't sizes more standardized across brands? I'm anywhere from an 8 to a 9, usually an 8.5. I took the recommendation to size up and got the 39. There were at least 1" to 1.5" too long for my foot and now Zappos is out of the color that I ordered on sale. I think a 38 might have been the perfect fit. Although I love the convenience of Zappos, I've struck out at least 3X because the size that should've fitted me did not. Not the fault of Zappos at all, but I think that I'm a try before you buy shoe person.

They look great, fit perfectly and are surprisingly comfortable. I love them. HOWEVER, they still squeak a little when I walk and it's been almost 3 months! I love them so much that I am ignoring the squeak. It's subtle and the shoes are so stylish and comfortable that they're worth it.

Just FYI to buyers, the size 40 is not a womens size 10, but a womens size 9 (website says its a 10). The shoes are beautiful, well-made, and super cute for Summer or Fall. The leather is a bit stiff (but aren't all leather products when you first get them?) I would imagine they would need some breaking in and might be a tad uncomfortable at first. They also run narrow for those with wider feet.

I love these sandals! I wore them all night to a concert where I danced the whole time and was totally comfortable!

Wanted to love these. Hoping that they would break in I’ve worn them for several weeks but atlas they never did. Now I’m stuck with them and will use them to take the dog for his quick nightly walk to the back yard since they are slip on’s. I love the style of them though.
