Let me first just say: I freakin love these shoes!!! I have Birkenstock Bostons that I enjoy, however, they're a tad too small, and I really want them to have an ankle strap so my toes don't have to work so hard to keep them on my feet. When I saw my local outdoor retailer (Pack Rat Outdoor Center in Fayetteville, AR) was going to start carrying these clogs, I knew it was time to say goodbye to my Bostons and give these a whirl. To say that I'll never go back is an understatement. These are so comfy and solid, and I know they're going to last a long time. I was pleasantly surprised at how malleable and "worn in" the leather already is. There's not been a break in period at all - aside from wearing them a couple times to get the straps adjusted perfectly. My sandals are a women's 9, but I decided to size up to a women's 10 in the clog bc my toes hit the end of the clog in the size 9. I also wanted to ensure that I can wear socks with my clogs, so that was another reason for sizing up. I saw another review that says they wished Bedrock would be more consistent with their sizing, and I disagree. I would say the sizing is on point. If I were to take a piece of fabric and enclose the toe of my Bedrock sandals, my toes would hit the end of the shoe. It's not a matter of non-consistent sizing and is really just the difference between an open-toed shoe and a close-toed shoe. Overall, 10/10 purchase AND I got to support a favorite company and local store all in one, buy a lasting product, and keep my feet feeling happy and healthy!
