I’ve been wanting to get a pair of Swedish Hasbeens for a minute already but never ended up buying a pair but now I have an excuse to buy all of them! Just got exciting news that this Spring H&M collaborated with Swedish Hasbeens to create three styles of wooden-soled clogs made exclusively for H&M. The collection was inspired by the traditional Swedish styles of the ’70s, using handcrafted methods and environmentally friendly materials. The collection is slated to hit around 150 H&M stores worldwide from April 20th.

“I love the genuine feeling you get from Hasbeens, from the wood and the leather, and also how they take something traditional and Swedish and make it contemporary and modern. These Hasbeens for H&M fit perfectly with the ’70s bohemian look that’s so important this coming season,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s head of design.

“We have a strong belief in making better shoes for a better world. We want to make fashion more fun, creative and friendly to both the environment and people. We have loved designing for H&M! It’s a fantastic opportunity to spread the idea of Hasbeens and make these shoes available to more people around the world,” says Emy Blixt, founder and designer of Swedish Hasbeens.

Thee three styles are available in sizes 36-40 and cost $59.95 to $69.95. There’s a gladiator style strappy wedge with three buckle ankle straps and a progression of straps going over the foot, all sitting on a wooden wedge. This is available in three colours, cream and tan on a pale wooden wedge and black on a black base. There’s then the heeled summer sandal with one ankle strap, which comes in cream and red on a pale wooden base. The third style is a peep-toe slip-on wedge on a wooden sole, with snake-effect leather laced on top.

Can’t wait till the collection releases, loves it! Do you like? Check out the full collection after the jump…
