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.

These have a great look, but unfortunately were just too uncomfortable to walk in. They are going back.

Really great shoe! It takes some getting used to walking on a wooden shoe, but looks great and is very comfortable.

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!

The most uncomfortable fit ever. Nice, color and style but very, very uncomfortable. Pity-- also the shoes weigh a ton

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.

Hasbeens are notorious for running narrow, so that wasn't a surprise. However - the color definitely surprised me. I ordered the Natural and expected a lighter shade of tan, but these are almost orange or a sienna. They're still super cute, but I'm much more aware of what "naturally grained leather" really means now.

Great clogs! Like all Hasbeens size up. I typically wear a 39, ordered a 40. Perfect.

I love the style of these shoes but I actually expected better quality based on the price and the way they are advertised "made the traditional way", "quality that lasts", "better than any machine made shoes", etc... The first time I walked around in them the black label at the heel started slipping, exposing sticky glue that sticks to my heel and is just plain annoying! The label has continued to slip and slide around and I fear that removing it would just hurt the situation, exposing more sticky glue. Would almost buy another pair, but this is annoying enough to prevent me.

Attractive, but awkward shape to the bottom of the shoe, rock solid wooden foot bed, and hard leather. Not a shoe I want to wear all day in humid summer heat. I didn't even try on the second shoe.
