I’m in between sizes. What should I get?
If you are wavering between 2 sizes, we recommend getting the smaller option. So if you are deciding between size 7 or 7.5, we recommend choosing the 7.
My clogs and running shoes are different sizes. What should I get in BALA?
BALA Twelves are closer in feel to a running shoe than clogs, so we recommend using your running or tennis shoes to guide your size decision.

If I don’t get the right size, can I return or exchange my order?
Our first priority is getting you the right size so we accept returns and exchanges for 45 days after purchase. See the returns and exchanges section of this page for more information.
What’s my size in EU or Men’s sizes?
I got my balas in the first order. They are cuter in person. I really liked my shoes!! They are built very nicely and have really amazing support!! I normally have to buy insoles to support my shoes at work but with these shoes you don’t have to!! I ended up returning my shoes for a couple reasons. My shoes were a little too big and a little too tight around my ankles. I think that combo made the shoes a weird noise when I tried to speed walk. I also thought they made my feet longer than they are and for those reasons I returned my shoes!
I received my shoes after much anticipation. Got a size 7.5 but I have wide feet, it was waay too snug and it started to hurt. Not for you if you ha e wide feet. Unfortunately I had to return it.
Love everything about them except they are very narrow. I even went up a size and have more than enough room in the toe box but the sides are too uncomfortablely narrow for my feet and feel like they are being squeezed.
The first few days in my Balas were not great. My arches were weirdly sore in a spot I've never felt before. But since then? AMAZING. I've had them for about a month now and they are so comfortable I hate taking them off at the end of the shift. What I really love (but didn't expect) is that they are SILENT. No more squeaking while I try to move around the room without waking someone up. Whenever they get new colors, I plan to buy a second pair for home use.
I preordered these and received my pair in size 8 in December. I ordered Nocturnal which truly do look amazing; clean lines and nice color contrast. They fit well with the exception of the length. While I know they have added extra length for swelling, walking around they felt too clown shoeish for me, so I exchanged for a 7.5. The 7.5 fits length wise, I still have room at the top for my toes, but they squeeze so tight my feet go numb. They are also extremely hard to get on. Unfortunately, neither pair will work for me which I am disappointed about. Bullet points are based on size 8 pair.
