OMG! Gorgeous! Unfortunately, this shoe is made way too narrow :/ so upsetting. I have to return.

Really comfortable for slightly to very narrow feet. I usually wear a medium width but tend towards more narrow feet. These shoes feel amazing and I forget I'm wearing anything!

Ugh. These are so darn cute, but I went up two sizes and still could not get my foot into these. Such a shame.

I love Hasbeens but gosh they are so narrow! And the leather, though of fine quality, is so tight -- absolutely no give whatsoever. Also no give in the wooden sole and they do hurt to walk on for long periods (based on another pair I have). Wanted to keep these but had to send them back :o(

Brutal. I almost cried trying to put them on.

The color on these was strange, like too peach and not enough nude. Otherwise I really liked them. Though they were also squeaky. So I won't be keeping.

I usually buy Lotta from Stockholm but thought I would try these, didn't like them as much (and they're more expensive). I found the back strap sat too low on my heel so they kind of slid around. They're almost the same as Lotta except Lotta has slightly more leather around the back part which must be why they fit me better. Otherwise these were very nicely constructed.

These are adorable shoes. Unfortunately they are incredibly narrow and uncomfortable. I may try to size up one more size to see if they get any wider because they really are cute.

WAY NARROW! If you have a medium or just over medium width foot, do not bother buying this sandal. These are absolutely meant for narrow forefeet.

I hoped these would work with my hallux limitus and bunions. The wood soles are just too hard and they don't have the rocker heel that I'm used to from Danskos. Walking in them was very clunky. The leather is hard. On the Hasbeens site they identify this model as being able to accommodate feet needing a wider toe box. I think that is true. Returning them.

Read about these as the GO TO travel shoe for SJP and others. They are too small for an 11, and I'm not sure how hard leather and stiff wood makes for comfort. I liked the red, but not a fit for me

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.

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!

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.
