Swedish Hasbeens for H&M update
So, did anyone get the Swedish Hasbeens for H&M clogs? I plumped for the red pair… and the same style in white, too. I couldn't decide which colour to go for, so I thought I'd buy both and choose later. Of course, now that I've got two pairs I'm reluctant to give up either!
The fact that they're so comfortable makes them hard to part with. I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, but I do like a shoe that I can walk – and run – in. And run you can in these, as the wooden heel is surprisingly light for a clog.
I love the retro 1970s vibe of this collection and the image of librarian chic my shoes conjure up. What's more, at £34.99 a pop, two pairs don't even match the cost of Swedish Hasbeens normally. Plus, a surprise bonus is the cute organic-cotton shoe/tote bag (above) that your shoes come in. Ditto the note from Swedish Hasbeens inside. Rather like adoption papers, it details all you need to know about your new shoes and how to care from them.
For example, did you know that as Swedish Hasbeens are handmade from natural materials, you could pretty much bury your shoes in the garden? Should you wish. No chance here – they're for wearing on my feet. But I won't be doing a Helena Bonham Carter with a different colour shoe on each foot – the pictures below just illustrate how impossible it was to choose between the red and the white!
I heart Swedish Hasbeens for H&M. And, the good news is, if you do, too, the collection isn't sold out yet. There are some styles and sizes left both online and in store, so get them while you can.
