I usually wear a 9 or 9.5. Even though the advice was for those who are between sizes to upsize, I was afraid a 10 would be too big, especially since leather stretches. The 9's however, were too short, and caused my toes to buckle. The look of the shoe was ok, although a little clunkier than I had predicted. I will probably exchange for a cloth in the 9.5 (leather only comes in whole sizes.)
In my case, the defect in the disclaimer turned out to actually be a *lack* of adhesive around the edge of the leather heel pad. Since this runs up the side of the upper just a little bit, movement of my feet quickly pushed the edge down and folded it over. However, this was easily corrected by applying a little Shoe Goo around the edge underneath the pad. Having to make this fix was more than worth the extra discount. Other than that, the shoes are great. I do have a narrow heel compared to the ball of my foot, so steps can make the clogs loose on the foot especially if not wearing socks, as the heel is wide, but I think that would probably the case with most any clog. Living in an apartment building, these are great for going to the laundry room, mailbox, or my storage area (which is inconveniently located across a parking lot that's painful in bare feet) without having to lace up shoes or suffocate my feet with my shearling-lined slippers in the summer heat. I only have a few stair steps to navigate; if you have a full flight or more, the heel-less design probably isn't the best choice for safety reasons.

These clogs run large. For Women, we recommend sizing down 1/2 size for socks, and 1 full size for barefoot wear(recommended). Men's runs true to size.
Our Men’s wool clogs run true to size, but we recommend sizing down a half size for narrow feet.
The Liesl fits like a traditional women's dress shoe and does not have the same fit profile as our clogs. Order your normal dress shoe size. Some women found this style runs a bit large as it is soft and flexible. It is medium width, but can accommodate a wider foot. We recommend ordering your normal size, or sizing down if between sizes. For wider feet, order your normal size, or size up. Will loosen slightly with wear.

All Stegmann leather clogs are medium width and fit more snugly than our wool clogs. They have a wide toe box that is consistent with the way clogs are meant to fit. Men's run true to size, size up if between sizes.
Our Women's leather clogs run a bit small and will loosen only slightly with wear. If you are between sizes we recommend sizing up. If you prefer a very snug fit or have a narrow foot you may consider sizing down. Size up if you plan to wear socks.
