First pair of clogs were flawed. Second pair were perfect. Love the fit and color. I'm very happy with the Ecowool Alpaca Clogs.
after recently experiencing a bout of plantar fasciitis for the first time , i was determined to level up my shoe selection to address the pain and take care of my feet . after coming across the Stegmann website , i was a little hesitant about ordering a more expensive shoe online .... it can be so confusing when customer reviews on size don’t quite match up with the sizing info the shoe company provides , so i wasn’t sure if i should take the websites suggestion and order a full size smaller than my usual shoe size for a snug , no sock fit OR the many reviewers suggestions saying they ordered their regular shoe size or only went up a half size . after checking the Stegman shoe return policy and seeing that it appeared pretty easy , i took the plunge and ordered the eco wool clog a full size smaller than my usual shoe size . when i received them ( oh my are they are pretty !!! ) , i was still unsure if i had picked the correct size . they were snug when barefoot , just how i prefer , but my heel felt as if it were juuuust at the lip of the shoe . given that these natural wool shoes do stretch , the next question was if they would stretch enough to settle my heel snuggly into the cupped heel of the shoe or would they only stretch in the toe area or top cover area 🤷🏼♀️ . i decided to send them back and order a half size larger and put them back in the box . a day later i got them out and tried them again and wore them around the house . i also read on the site somewhere to be sure the arch support is correctly under your arch and that your toes are aligned with the slight ridge in the sole of the cog that cradles your toes into the correct position within the shoe . i decided to keep them and i’m glad i did !!! i have been wearing them ALL the time for about a month now and i couldn’t be happier with the fit . the shoe did stretch out a little bit in the overall snug fit , but not to the point of fitting loosely , and that allowed my heel to feel more properly in place as well . they are warm but not too warm ( my feet naturally run hot but never sweat in these clogs ) and seem to have molded into the perfect for me fit . i appreciate the softer footbed , having previously wore birkenstock’s around the house , and i think they are just mighty cute and very well made . i’m pretty sure before the next fall/winter season that i’m going to “need” another pair in another color 🙂. i hope this review helps anyone struggling with making a sizing choice !!
These wool clogs are perfect! I've been wearing them all winter. So comfy.
