My husband has a high instep (high arch)
and the slipper was quite uncomfortable across the top of
his foot. The band was pressing too hard there even though
he really wanted to make it work. They did not fit him which
is unfortunate, because there is nothing as comfortable as
felt clogs...when they fit.
This is my second pair of halflinger grizzly clogs in 10
years. I wore the first pair until there were holes in the
wool, but the soles and cork never gave out or fell apart.
Because they are made from natural fibers, they are warm in
the winter and breathe nicely in the summer. I bought a pair
of Stedman wool clogs (also from Germany) several years ago
because they looked the same. I found a deal and didn't know
any better. The quality of that brand is not nearly as good
as these. the sole came apart from the cork after only a
year and the footbed became compressed and less supportive.
I had them repaired only to have the sole come apart from
the cork not too long afterwards. While they are not cheap,
the clog is worth every penny, will last a long time, and is
very comfortable. Try them on before you buy them. I wear a
size 9 US but in these i wear a size 39 European which they
call a size 8 US.
I love these clogs. The only reason I buy new ones every
year is because for some reason I always get a hole is the
right shoe by the big toe. I must walk some strange way!
Anyway still the best most comfortable clog around. I have
converted a lot of people- even teenage boys!
I live where we have lots of summer weather, but short
winters and I wanted warm slippers for our brief winters but
hate it when my feet sweat. Just as the other reviews said,
they are warm, but not too hot even if the weather warms up.
A bit prcicy, but comfortable and even look good with slacks
and jeans. Can be worn in and out of the house.
I bought a pair of these from Shoe buy a little over three
years ago and I've completely worn them out. But they are
absolutely great shoes, especially if you have foot issues.
I have really high arches and these are perfect for this.
Once they mold to your feet, you just don't want to take
I had been using a pair of these, size 10.5 (they say 45 on
the soles) US Male and they were getting worn. I use them
with an orthotic. I ordered two pairs of what I thought were
the same shoe,(also with size 45 on the soles) but they were
extremely tight both in width and in the area mid-shoe.
I have been wearing this brand for 15 years. The cork
footbed is the best for incredible, yet light-weight
support. The only problem with this shoe is that my big toe
eventually tears a whole in the wool felt. Still, I usually
get 2-3 years out of one pair and considering I wear them
everyday, that seems like a good deal.
