Swedish Hasbeens

Untitled-1

Right now a pair of Swedish Hasbeens jodhpurs is on the top of my never-going-to-be-able-to-afford wishlist. They're running about $375 a pair (ouch!) on the UO site. But they're sooo lovely. All simple and utilitarian and stylish all at the same time. And the other boots are nothing to sniff at!

Come summer I'm sure I'll be just as smitten with their line of simple 70s inspired sandals. And their website is a charming as the shoes, doling out pieces of advise like "the shoes will last longer if you don't use them everyday, all of the time."

Oh my gosh, I KNOW! I have family in Sweden and sent them all a not-so-subtle email with my shoe size and said if they ever see a used pair or a sale to get me some!

Ever since I saw the brown leather sandals, I've known they're my perfect summer sandal I've been wanting for years... and yet, still out of reach!

They're pretty great. The sandals can actually be obtained on amazon right now for about $75. I've been contemplating getting them while they're cheap and wearing them with socks.

I have a weakness or shoes! If I could I'd like to own them all!!!

Funny that you should post about these shoes! I have been admiring the black jodhpur pair ever since they were up on the UO site. You summed it up perfectly by saying, "on the top of my never-going-to-be-able-to-afford wishlist" - so true, so true - but I want them badly! Sigh.

Those sandals look lovely. However, I find wooden soled shoes most uncomfortable. And the staples on the sides look cheap.

I some how got lucky and found a pair of vintage swedish leather clogs with the wooden sole for $5 at a goodwill. I thought the concept of shoe wasn't being used too much.. but surprise! The new styles are quite nice and perfectly modern :-)

How could a person NOT wear them every day, all of the time? They're so perfect.

dave said...

Wow..! These shoes are marvelous. Want to see them in my closet.

I first read about Hasbeens sandals on Rhiannon's blog, but I didn't know they made such cute boots!

Market Publique said...

I've been dying over Swedish Hasbeens for a while now - ever since I saw their collaboration with local vintage store No. 6.
I wish they were a bit more affordable though!

MiMi said...

Ooh, I've been wondering about these! My favorite online place to window shop and drool, Ped Shoes, just got these in. They are so cute! Are they comfortable? I'm dying for the Jodphur in green that Ped has.
