because when you click on the link it takes you to Dragon's Blood Serum, Uniqlo ankle length trousers, and foundation - but no sandals!
I think they are very pretty.

They are a copy of the 'Swedish Hasbeens'. Google it.

Got them! Thank you grin

I have them in black from last year. So comfy!

OhBlissOhJoy Fri 05-May-17 13:26:10

Just tried them on - they are super comfy and don't feel like heels at all. Too big though, will have to get a smaller size. Might get both colours as well...

I've been admiring them too but worried about the stiffness of an all wooden sole.

ladyratterley Fri 05-May-17 16:43:54

They're not actually wooden. They're more like rubber, but look like wood. I wore mine so much last year and walked miles in them they're so comfortable.

OhBlissOhJoy Fri 05-May-17 16:53:07

That makes sense Lady, they weren't clompy at all!
Have ordered both colours, should come in a couple of days so will report back Nom.

If you like the style, Inwould recommend Lotta from Stockholm clogs. About half the price of Hasbeens and very comfortable. They are actually wooden but that's not an issues although they are quite noisy when you walk.

Lotta from Stockholm

Thanks for the sole info. Am v tempted now. Only £60 too. Ooooohhhhh

ladyratterley Fri 05-May-17 22:54:00

Thanks Funkinell I really like the look of some of those clogs!
I've been put off Swedish has verbs. A very glam and trendy friend of mine spent a lot on a pair and can't wear them as they ripped her feet and made them bleed. She was most put out that my Clarks pair look lovely are comfy and cost less than half the price!

Anyone who has these Clarks sandals, how narrow/wide are they?? I normally buy wider width from Clarks but that isnt an option for this style and I dont know whether to risk ordering....

ShanghaiDiva Sat 06-May-17 10:28:35

I have the black ones from last year and I normally need a wide fitting. These are really comfortable.

emsyj37 Sat 06-May-17 11:08:03

Thanks! Going to order the black now smile

OhBlissOhJoy Sat 06-May-17 11:25:01

I was worried about this too Emsyj, I am normally a wide fit but these are fine.

"Only £60 too."


emsyj37 Sat 06-May-17 13:41:47

I think people mean 'compared with Swedish Hasbeens', which are double that or more. Not that £60 is mega cheap. Although I do find Clarks shoes (for adults) are good quality and they last a long time - the last pair of Clarks sandals I had got me through 3 summers of daily heavy wear with tons of walking. They were still in reasonable condition when I replaced them with a new style. So £60 is a fair price I think.

Sorry gwyn, I suppose it depends on individual budget. It's all relative, isn't it? However, yes, they are 'cheap' compared to Hasbeens.

NomDePlumeReloaded Sat 06-May-17 14:12:14

Correction, Gwen
