My first pair of Swedish Hasbeens is here!
If you remember this post, back in spring 2011 I received a pair of red clogs from the Swedish Hasbeens for H&M collection. Well, I wore them to death. Really, they almost fell apart at some point, but I repaired them as I couldn't stand losing them.
Ever since then, I was always looking out for a black pair of the actual thing on sale, since there wasn't a chance in the world I would fork out the full retail price, and I after a while, I scored!
Braided Sky High is one of their most popular designs, according to their official site. It also costs a whooping 190€ to buy full price, which makes me feel particularly efficient, as I managed to score it on sale at ASOS for a discounted 120€.
They are made from all natural materials in Sweden, which means you have to take good care of them, protect them from water, and be prepared to encounter chips on the wood and darkening of the natural leather colours.
This also means that the leather is very stiff in the begining and you must have the patience to break them in. That's why I am now wearing them around the house with thick socks, which is a style I am actually starting to contemplate getting out in the real world too.
