These Sketcher "Shindigs-Miracle Clogs" don't live up to their name.
on October 21, 2015
When I saw these 'clogs' I immediately thought I had found what I was looking for. They came in a few colors, were made by a respectable company that my family has used in the past, and a brand name my good friend always swore by. I read the previous reviews and decided for the great low Amazon price, I'd take everyones-review advice and buy a full size larger than I needed. I figured that if they were a little too big, I'd just wear heavier socks. After all, I got these for the cold months ahead!
PROS: Out of the box they LOOKED perfect, the faux fur is soft, they are a good weight, well made, and easy on the eyes.
CONS: However, once I tried them on they were TOO SMALL. I wear a size U.S.7, and purchased the U.S. size 8. I couldn't believe it, my foot sticks out the back past the fuzzy trim that should hug the base of the heel! How could Sketchers get the sizes so wrong? I'm So disappointed.
Anyhow, I decided to keep them hoping that they would stretch out a bit. That hasn't happened, & I've had them a few months! The construction is quite ridged, and wearing them makes me feel like I'm walking like Frankenstein. There is just no give in the sole or the fabrics. The plush interior is not lined with any foam, so it's hard on the balls of your feet. And there is no arch support. Despite the fact that I am willing to deal with my choice of size & decided not to return them for a refund or for another 1/2 size up, they just aren't as comfortable as I expected from such a good company, and I can only tolerate wearing them for a few hours at a time.
I should have spent the same amount of money on a not as attractive, lesser known brand that I saw locally. I am so disappointed with these Sketcher "Shindigs-Miracle Clogs." They simply don't live up to their name.
