I love Clove shoes! However, the 8s I ordered were way too big. I wear a 7.5 in regular clove shoes. I thought it stated to go up ½ size from that or full size if wide foot. I didn't take a star off or want to go through the hassle of returning. So, I gave them to my sister that wears wide width. I usually wear 7-7.5 depending on the shoe, sz8 heels. I have reg/slightly wider feet. I've recommended Cloves to so many people. Dog daycare, veterinarian techs, food service, cashiers, nurses, scrub tech, anyone on their feet around liquid, these are great.
I am/was a faithful clog (Dansko/Sanita) woman, but these are amazing! There is no "break in period". Cloves are comfortable from day 1. I started wearing clogs 15+ yrs ago. When I wore regular athletic shoes, my feet, knees, hips and/or back hurt after a long day. Clogs helped but I would have sore feet sometimes, especially when new. I am so happy someone recommended Clove to me!
