Style: 37587920 Colour:
Supple leather clog ankle boots featuring platform heel and inner zip detailing. Studded accents around the base. Rounded toe.
Great boot/clog/wedge all in one...they are slightly weird to get onto your foot, but once they are, they're extremely comfortable and easy to walk in. A.S. 98 usually makes super comfortable shoes and these are no exception. Cool looking, fun to wear and comfortable.
These are awesome. I was nervous about the zipper because of some of the other reviews but I have zero issues. I bought these in the olive color and they're really pretty. I own several pairs of AS98's and the sizing is the same. I typically wear a 9 with thin socks or 9.5 with thicker socks... the leather in these seems to be more durable/thicker than in the Simon boot.. which I like. Great height. So far very comfortable. The one thing I find strange is the staple looking thing in side ofthe sole. I have the Nathan sandals and they have the same staple. It looks a little cheap in an expensive shoe! But not a big deal. Happy with my purchase!
I like these a lot and was happy with them when I first looked in the box. HOWEVER, as other reviewers mentioned, they are impossible to get on! The slanted zipper crushes inward no matter what you do. They are the right size and even quite roomy once you get them on which I did. I got one on. After many tries over two days. I can't have shoes that I need to plan a half an hour or more to put on so these are going back. Otherwise, the style is nice and they look as pictured. One other little (picky) thing is that the cheesy looking AS98 logo on the zipper is something I could do without.
cannot get on!!
I was so excited to see my size was back in stock so I decided to splurge. They are so cute and the leather smells so good - however I could only get the right shoe on! I struggled for over 20 min trying to get these shoes on and even cut my finger on the zipper. They are my correct size but the slanted zipper makes them impossible to get on. I'm going to have to return them unfortunately.
Hard to get on, but very cute
These booties have a weird diagonal zipper thing which makes them really hard to get on. Once I managed to get my feet inside, they are roomy inside, true to size. Unfortunately there is no cushioning inside, so I worry they may not be very comfortable for standing/walking. The leather is also pretty stiff, so I think it's going to take some time for them to get comfy, for example the front top part of the boot kind of rubs against ankles when walking, and has very little give. For the (very expensive) price, I really expected a more supple leather. It is pretty and the stud detailing is so cute. They seem well made. In terms of the heel height, they feel stable and have a clog-like feeling in terms of not putting too much weight into the ball of the foot. I'm going to try them around the house to see if I should keep them or not.
The only word to explain these clog boots is spectacular!! I wasn't even going to try them because I thought they might be too chunky. But when FP had their 20% off sale I went for it. I got the Khaki Color which is like a worn olive greenish-grey. More green than I expected. When I opened the box I thought
Best booties ever...
These fit great ... I don't ever do anything with a heel but these are actually comfy and I can wear them all day with no pain. Super great craftsmanship too... plus they make me taller... hooray!!! I think I may need a pair in every color.
Too cool to pass up
These are beautifully constructed boots! I encourage you to splurge if you really like them, and you are a boot lover. I normally don't like the wedge look but I love these. I am a size 9.5 wide foot (don't need special shoes, regular wide) and like all EU made shoes I wear a 41, these were no exception. They are really comfortable and super cool. There's nothing else like them out there. The angled zipper is different and cool. I just love these!
The Perfect Bootie
It took a while for me to bring myself to hit the order button at $330. However, I'm so glad I did. As much as I wanted to find something wrong with these shoes - I couldn't. I am absolutely in love with them and they are so comfortable! I didn't want to take them off upon trying them on. If you're on the fence about these and are trying to figure out if they're worth it -- they are! Also, for sizing reference, I am an 8.5 - 9 and size 39 fits beautifully.
I received a 'clog' email from free people and fell for these clog boots by AS 98. I have two other pairs of AS 98 boots so I wasn't surprised that they fit perfectly and are clearly well made. I also purchased the Amber Orchard clog in the hopes that I might prefer it (it is half the price), but alas it did not even compare!. My only issue is the edge of some stitching at the back of my ankle......it is a little sharp and irritates my skin, but I'm sure it will soften with time. \ I normally wear a 7.5 or an 8 and have wide feet; the 38 is perfect.
