Hasbeens come up small and fairly narrow. I'm a 5.5 with wide feet, I have to size down to a 5 in most shoes but my Hasbeens are a size 39 (6) and they fit really well.
I also have some clogs from Lotta from Stockholm. They are almost identical to Hasbeens but they are bigger / wider sizes (and a lot cheaper). I have a size 5 in those. Might be worth a look if you have wide feet.
I wear a 39 in almost everything Ash (38) and M&S/Clarks (5.5). I just (literally yesterday) got some papillons from the debutante range. It does say on the Swedish hasbeens website that as a range debutante comes up bigger so size down if between sizes. The length is generous but they are not particularly wide.
When I was umming and aahing about them I noticed they are stocked by office and urban outfitters at least. Any way you can get to a store to try on?
Before you buy check if the pair you want are in stock on the Swedish hasbeens website because if they are the code BETTY got me 40% off and free delivery from Sweden. They would be hard to return but I figured at that price I could always recover my money on eBay.
Tried them last night with turned up straight leg jeans and loved how they look! Couldn't muster energy to paint toe nails though so not wearing them today
I'm generally not very good at wearing heels and I do find them comfortable. The platform means that they don't feel as high as they look. However, if I was going to walk more than a mile I would wear my Lotta clogs, which have a 7.5 cm heel (same as Hasbeens 'Highs') rather than my super highs, which have a 9cm heel.
I wore my clogs with socks for the first few wears to break them in but after that I found the leather really soft and wear them without socks all the time now.
I have wide feet too, and I have just bought a pair from the Debutante range. I ordered a 39 when I would normally wear a 38/38.5 depending on style and brand. They fit really well, they are plenty long enough but if I had got a 38 then they certainly wouldn't have been wide enough.
I ordered them a week ago - UPS came twice but for some reason didn't call and couldn't get in the building?? I have emailed them - anyone else had this? Oh no re hard leather - it looks like nice leather but hope its not too bad!
I bought the Matilda clogs (6.5cm heel). The front of the clogs are made of thin strips of leather which cross over. The leather is not hard. I would have worn them today they were so comfy, but the rain stopped that. Because of the height of the platform they don't feel high, they are a "wear all day height". The blue is a lovely shade.
