Whether you're new to wearing Sandgrens footwear or have been wearing them for years, sometimes fit can be a bit tricky. Rest assured, we are here with this guide to help you find the perfect Sandgrens fit for you.
HEEL HEIGHT RECOMMENDATIONS
Our high-heel shoes have a more narrow fit than our low-heels.
Cork sandals: Recommended for regular/wide width feet or if you prefer a looser fit.
Low heel clogs: Recommended for regular width feet or if you prefer a looser fit.
High heel styles: Recommended for narrow feet or if you prefer a more snug fit.
Remember to always measure your feet, all our styles have slightly different fit. Depending on the heel height and design, the measurement of the shoes will vary, which is why we recommend to always measure your feet and compare your measurements to your style's specific size chart.
You'll find the size chart for the style you’re interested in on the product page, just over the sizing options.
Stand up straight on a flat surface with your heel against the wall. Put a piece of blank paper taped to the floor below your foot and mark the longest part of your foot on the paper. Repeat with the other foot as left and right sizes might differ.
Remember, if you are between sizes we recommend to size up.
THE FIT OF OUR WOODEN CLOGS
Our footwear are loose-fitting shoes and they are designed to slip on the heel when you walk. This is referred to as ‘slipping’. This is referred to as slipping which is the traditional fit of our styles.
Our cork base are designed to mold to your unique foot shape, while the adjustable straps provide a custom fit for added support.
If the straps on your new cork sandals feels to tight or to loose on your feet after the first wear, don't worry. The adjustable straps allow you to personalize your pair to your liking. As the leather stretches with wear, make sure to check the strap adjustments again after a few wears.
We recommend adjusting your straps as soon as possible when they arrive to get the best fit and to avoid future marks from the buckle to show.
Ease into the break-in process by wearing your new shoes for a few hours eachday and then gradually increase. When comparing our two leathers, Nubuck will initially feel softer than Vegetable Tanned leather but give it a few wears and getready to feel the difference as your body and new shoes adjusts to each other.
If you wish to speed up the process, we’d recommend giving the leather a nice massage a few times in-between wears. All you need to do is press the leather in your hands and between your fingers. This will help soften the leather.
Wearing socks the first couple of times may also help ease the break in process.
YOUR FIRST PAIR OF FOOTWEAR FROM SANDGRENS
Here are a couple things we think you should know before you put on your first pair of footwear from Sandgrens:
- All our clogs and cork sandals are made by hand, which means that no single pair is identical to the next. This is something we are very proud of and we think you should be too.
- Our shoes are designed to allow your heel to “slip” when you walk.
- We recommend wearing your new clogs or cork sandals for no more than a couple of hours a day for the first week, then gradually increase so that your body and clogs will adjust to each other.
