I ordered these with a brown base and a cordovan colored leather. i LOVE them. I wear them with socks and without, inside and outside. Very happy with these and will be ordering more clogs from SVEN!
This is my favorite Sven's style! They are, for me, the most comfortable, and I can wear them with or without socks (they are especially comfortable without socks). The outer soles are not at all slippery! The inside, being smooth wood, is better with bare feet (slightly moist) and when I wear them with socks I will dampen the bottom of the socks so they aren't slippery. I have about seven pair of Sven's clogs and these are the only ones that can be slippery inside, and they are also my only ones with black soles, so maybe that has something to do with it.
My these are adorable. The fit is exceptional for a slip on and the strap is higher up on the foot compared to a clog like the Dansko Merrie which wouldn't stay on my foot. I got these in bendable black base with smooth black leather. One caution: the bottoms are SO slippery. I went to walk and fell right on my can. Be careful! Sven Clogs told me to go "rough them up" on some concrete. It would have been nice to know that ahead of time. The good news is that I didn't hurt myself- but somebody COULD. Watch your first steps. And Sven Clogs- you may want to issue a warning in your description. One star off for that. Otherwise- stellar!
