It’s okay if they hurt in the beginning.
Like many other shoes – our Swedish clogs take a while to break in. If this is your first time wearing wooden shoes, then getting used to walking on wood might feel a bit odd. Don’t worry though – once you’ve worn them for a while your feet will thank you. Wearing wood can be one of the friendliest materials to walk on! We suggest wearing them for a few hours a day for the first week and then slightly increase amount hours the following week.
Use a fine-grit sandpaper to clean the wood.
Yes, you heard right. If you’ve managed to get a little bit of dirt on your wooden clogs, try sandpaper to rub it away. Obviously, this should be used gently and with care but it definitely helps getting rid of those tiny marks.
Watch out for stairs and sidewalks edges.
It is very common to get a chip on your wooden clogs by accidentally hitting a step when you are walking up the stairs or when you’re crossing the road. We attached a thin rubber sole on them to protect the wood and prevent you from slipping but it is always good to be extra careful where you put your feet. If you do happen to get a chip in your wooden clog – often it’s an easy fix with some glue.
