Size & Fit Details
Please check 'Size Chart' above before ordering. This is a Medium (B) width clog with a generous toe box. Order your usual shoe size if you plan to wear socks or have a higher volume foot. We recommend sizing down 1/2 size for barefoot wear, or if you prefer a snug fit. This clog will loosen slightly with wear. Designed for indoor and outdoor wear. This clog does not have a removable insole or insert - the upper is a single, seamless piece of wool. The cork footbed is contoured for full arch and foot support.

The Eco clog is made with special heritage wools that are sourced from small farms practicing sustainable and cruelty-free farming. The wool is minimally processed and contains no dyes. Alpaca wool is lanolin free. Please note, because these wools are un-dyed, slight variations may occur based on the colors of the sheep each season. Items received will be close but may not exactly match photos. See features and sizing details below.

● Product of Austria
The Tirolean Stonesheep (Tiroler Steinschaf) is one of the oldest existing sheep species on earth. These sheep have been bred on remote mountain farms for centuries in Tirol for their meat, milk, and wool. Their wool was in high demand especially in the 20th century to produce loden cloth. Today, the Tirolean Stonesheep is a rare species. The estimated Austrian population is around 4,000 sheep, and 14,000 worldwide.This clog is part of our Species Preservation Initiative and helps support this rare breed.
Shetland sheep are native to the Shetland Islands in Scotland. The breed traces its roots to the ancient Nordic heather sheep and has been recorded in history since the Stone Age. The wool of the Shetland Sheep is very high quality with a high level of elasticity. Once a year, in the springtime, the sheep shed their wool. At that time the wool can be easily loosened and detached without shearing, but rather by picking it.This clog is part of our Species Preservation Initiative and helps support this rare breed.
The Juraschaf is native to Switzerland and spends most of its life in the Alps. The breed is popular in Switzerland and its wool is in high demand for its high quality, dark color and fine fiber structure. It is well known for its ability to thrive in tough alpine conditions. Raw wool ranges from dark brown to completely black. When blended for our clogs, it produces a rich, deep espresso brown. Juraschaf wool is soft and fine, with all the wonderful natural insulating properties of alpine sheep wool.This clog is part of our Species Preservation Initiative and helps support this rare breed.
Alpaca is a well-known wool producer and is raised all around the world. The wool we use is from the Peruvian Alpaca, which is native to the Andes in South America. Their wool is highly prized for being softer and silkier than cashmere, yet very durable and warm. Our wool is called "baby alpaca" and is sourced from a Fair Trade Certified & Cruelty Free Collective. "Baby Alpaca" does not refer to the age of the alpaca, but rather the grade of the wool - Baby being the finest and softest.
Coburg Fox Sheep
The Coburg Fox sheep is a robust breed native to Germany. The speciality of this wool is its reddish-brown colour. When lambs are born, their color can be from goldish yellow to reddish brown, which can appear golden. Over the years it brightens up but it always keeps its reddish-brown or golden shimmer. There are currently only a few thousand Coburg sheep in existence. The wool is a medium gauge that is both soft and hardy, making it ideal for felting.
Eco Clog Features
I ordered these because of the excellent reviews and eco approach. They arrived promptly and in good condition, and I loved everything about them - except the fit. The metatarsal support did not suit my foot, so I sadly decided to return them. Somehow I couldn't bring myself to ship them back. Every few days, I'd try them again, and finally, I decided to go for it and wear them with thick socks for a day, even if it meant they would be too worn to be returned. Am I glad I did! They have conformed to my feet and become wonderfully comfortable and cozy, with or without socks. The stonesheep color is just as I had hoped, and I couldn't be happier with the purchase or Stegmann's responsiveness.
These are wonderfully comfortable and warm clogs and I feel good about having them be "Eco". I ordered two pair to compare size and the one that fit best is one-half size smaller than most shoes that I purchase now. This is a great clog - or slipper for me.
