Thank you for your feedback.
These boots are beautiful and they are well made, but they run too small and WAY too narrow.
When i rate them as "somewhat small" it isn't in the overall roominess just the constriction in the front.
Could barely get my foot in at 2 sizes larger than I normally am!

    Size: 8 B(M) USColor: Cognac Nubuck Verified Purchase
    I was really looking forward to receiving these. Unfortunately, the sizing was so ridiculously small that they had to be returned. I wear a 7 1/2 - 8 and ordered these in an 8. They were more like 6 1/2. They were so short and narrow that I felt like one of Cinderella's step-sisters trying to make the slipper fit! Not even close. Back they went.

    Cheap product, probably not the real product. The wood on the clog is cheap and the leather is really hard. The bed of the shoe does not bend so it's hard to get the shoe to break in. And the staples where my foot is wide are coming out. :/

    I LOVE the LOOK and FEEL of these boots thus the three stars...but...

    Should have known that I would have issues with these boots, as the label sticker on the inside of the shoe heel was not even stuck down properly. I had to pick up and attach the label myself. A small issue alas, but one none the less.

    The stitching around the top of the boot is coming undone. I am not certain if it is merely a decorative stitch or not.

    The major issue that I am having is that the sole of the boot has started coming off quickly. Way too quickly. I haven't worn these for long distances, thru rain, mud or snow. I have only been on a few short walks on my neighborhood (paved sidewalk) and one longer walk along the Embarcadero in SF (roughly .25 miles and a paved sidewalk). Strictly used in urban settings. The soles of these boots should not be coming off. I have a pair of Sven boots that I wore every single day thru TWO winters in NYC and they are still completely intact. Needless to say, I would expect the same level of craftsmanship from such a reputable company as SwedishHasbeens

    This has been on the top of my shoe wish list for a few years and FINALLY I splurged on them this winter. I am a little wide at the balls of my feet so I was worried knowing that the Emy is on the narrow side. Bought them anyway hoping that the leather would mold to my feet. Surprisingly it didn't take long, about a month of very light usage--like once or twice a week for a few hours each time. Not bad at all. I can actually see a slight indentation of the balls of my feet in the shape of the leather. Pretty cool! I will say the first two times I wore them all day I jokingly called them my "lovely little torture devices". They got really achy after around 3 hours. But I would just take them off for 30 minutes while sitting and then put them back on, which helps so it wasn't too bad. Now they're perfect, the ankle is stretched out too. At first I always wore crew socks that were thick at the top to give some cushion and prevent soreness at the ankle. So because of the socks I didn't have any soreness at the shin/ankle area. So definitely wear crew socks that are thicker at the top. I wore SBiding warm crew socks I bought on Amazon.

    These boots are awesome...did read the reviews and knew they may run small and are stiff...they do and are...am kinda disappointed that swedish hasbeens are so pricy and not even all being made in Sweden, there's say Romania...have used my shoe geanie as well as a good oiling on the outside wore them with thin socks and then barefoot...will continue with the gradual stretching and softening of the leather...they were a good price and I'd been watching them for a long time!

    Size: 10 B(M) USColor: Dirty Pink Nubuck Verified Purchase
    within the last year i have started wearing clogs for a heel spur problem and they have really helped. But on trips to colder cities i really needed a boot style. i can't have these on my feet for more than ten minutes! i have lots of other clogs from this brand and they are excellent. there is something about the confinement of this style that makes my toes numb. When i rate them as "somewhat small" it isn't in the overall roominess just the constriction in the front. i'd love to know the secret to breaking them in.

    I really love these boots! The sizing seems a bit off from other clogs that I have bought, so I had to work a bit harder to break these in. However, once they were broken in, I really, really have enjoyed wearing them and have gotten many compliments. The color is a lovely dusky rose and they wear well.

    These boots are great. Be careful with the sizing - I wear a 40 European, 9 US, and in their size menu I almost accidentally ordered a 39 because their size 40 is listed as a US 10. They fit very well, though they are a little tight with wool socks. They are actually surprisingly easy to walk in, given that they're made of wood. I could wear them all day from day one, straight out of the box. The only time they got uncomfortable was at the end of a very long day, when they started feeling really tight, but even then they were still pretty easy and comfortable to walk around in.

    The pink nubuck is very cute but as I feared, they scuff easily and often, and are already looking a little grubby after a few weeks of regular wear. I would have gotten a darker color if they had all been the same price, and will get them in a darker color if one goes on sale!
