update on Bastad clogs

Posted by elliott on 9/17/02 at 09:17 (095524)

I was so happy with them that I ordered a second pair of these wooden clogs for work, a different model, this time with a padded instep instead of an adjustable strap. But I found the forefoot a tad snug for me and the instep too loose for my very low, flat foot. I don't think most of you would have trouble with that version; it's just my foot. I sent them back for $6 (Shoebuy had UPS pick them up at my house!) and was planning to order another pair from them of what I already bought only to find out they just stopped selling them. so I ordered same pair as before from another company.

Elliot,

I am still waiting for my two pairs of bastads that I ordered from Northerner, Inc., three weeks ago. Can't wait to try them, based on your testimonials!

That almost certainly meansthey didn't have it in stock and are ordering it, either from a warehouse or even direct from Sweden (they're making yours as we speak :-)). Yesterday I just received my second pair (it took around a week); when I ordered I asked and they told me it was in stock.

Elliot,

The company responded to my e-mail, saying that they just shipped the clogs Wednesday, since they was not in stock. They also said that they are located in Sweden, so a three-week delay in getting the clogs from the manufacturer to them, and then shipping them to me seems a tad too long. I sent them another e-mail, asking how long the shipment will take to get to me in California, but they have not responded to that e-mail.

I guess getting these clogs at a great discount (less than $40 each), means paying the price in a longer wait.
