Based on a wood sole from the late-70s Disco era, these *Jodhpur* booties from Swedish Hasbeens with a heel just under 3 inches (7 cm) are constructed to go the distance. With wear, the natural-grained & eco-friendly leather will start to stretch (a lot, if you get them soaked) and as the wood portion of the sole is a living material, you may need to touch up the rubber sole with some glue every once in a while if it happens to get loose. Which is pretty likely, given how much people who own Hasbeens love to wear them. But with TLC, these handmade beauties will, er, last (sorry, bad shoe pun) a good long time and definitely up the cool factor of most anything you pair them with, from rolled-up skinnies to a pencil skirt & tights.
