I think that choosing the right size is the biggest hurdle. If you are on the smaller end of a size I would order your normal size, but if you are on the top end of a size - do yourself a favor and go up one size. This style needs for you to have plenty of length in the toe box to enable your heel to glide up and down like most clogs. I don't believe they are intended to be form fitting like a pair of tennis shoes.
Lastly, about the arch. My foot is pretty flat with almost no arch - Dansko is painful for me to wear. As you make your selection, keep the arch in mind - if you have high arches and require a lot of support - this style is not for you.
The sizing can be tricky. In my experience, I wear a solid 9 in most shoes, sometimes even a 9.5, but only if a shoe runs a little small. All 4 of my Alegrias (the Paloma, the Classic clog, the Belle, and the Kaitlyn) are sized 39. In the classic clog I have plenty of room, especially once they got worn in (i wear these all the time in the house because of my heel issue). The Paloma fits like a dream. The Kaitlyn has a slightly different insole so it feels smaller, but not too small as my toes aren't touching the end. The Belle almost felt too small at first, but after a day of wearing they broke in and now I don't notice my toes touching the end like they did the first day.
Now for the solution to the squeak that some have complained about. The squeak originates in the sole of the shoe from the insole rubbing against the inside of the shoe itself. If you remove the insole and coat the bottom of it with a silicone lubricant like you can get at a hardware store or auto supply store, it will cease the squeak. All four of my pairs developed the squeak after a few days of wear. After spraying the bottom of the insoles 3 of them no longer squeak at all. The classic clogs still squeak, but I believe the issue with those is different. The squeak seems to originate on the top of the shoe where the leather strap rubs against the decorated cork top (they are the classic cork black pull up design). I don't know how long this fix lasts, but so far it's been a few weeks since I sprayed mine and they are still squeak free.

The leather is buttery soft and they are slightly large, for me size 6 but I have wide feet that swell up in the day so I sure they will be fine. They look great too.
