Latest Clogs & Mules Reviews

I got these a month ago and wore them all over Rome for 2 weeks- they were great! I have wide feet with painful bunions, and these worked out surprisingly well. I got the 9W (my usual size) and that was perfect. The elastic is nice and forgiving, and the egg crate footbed is supportive and soft. I wish the soles had a little more traction. The first couple of 12-hour days of walking the ruins, my toes did rub against the leather top and get slightly irritated, but I have very few shoes that wouldn't do that after such long, hot days. I would buy them again.

Overall, the shoes are comfortable, exceptional arch support; however, I am and always have been a size 9 - 9.5. After reading some of the reviews, I tussled a bit on what size to order, a 39, or 40. Unsure, I ordered both. Upon receipt, the very next day -- thank you Zappos, I tried both pairs on and the 40 was a perfect fit. On the other hand, the 39 fit...but my foot was almost hanging off the back edge. Not all that noticeable, but it bothered me, so I am sending the 39 back. As for the appearance, my husband hates them because as others have pointed out they are big clunky shoes, but in my opinion the colors help to over shadow the clunkiness...I ordered the leopard hair, and they are adorable. On that note, my only grip, is that the sizing is off, but Zappos return/exchange policy eases the pain. All that said, if you are contemplating on whether to order these shoes, get them and in the color that catches your eye; but, and heed this advice, order a size up from your 'normal' size. So, if you are a '9', order size 40, not 39.
