I have purchased many clogs. Unfortunately one brand , of "professional" clogs, I was used to buying has lost quality control since being manufactured in China. I have diabetic neuropathy and a well made shoe is necessary for me to be on my feet all day. I require the clog type shoe as it stabilizes my foot and doesn't rub my feet or cause blisters. Luckily I found the Troentorp brand. I never imagined a wooden clog would do the trick for me but they have. I believe it's a combination of how they construct the foot-bed and the rubber of the sole. All I know is I no longer have back or leg pain after being on my feet. Also, the way the top of the shoe is constructed, with the amount of leather, I am able to wear these in normal size rather than requiring a wide. The clog is stable enough I can climb ladders for my work. The leather is great quality and is quite easy to break in. The sizing was accurate. I have purchased other Swedish clogs with a wooden sole and they are not made as well as the Troentorps. They may look similar but they are not the same quality or comfort. I highly recommend this brand and their customer service people are very helpful. Shipping was fast. GREAT SHOES!
