We Need Your Help

We recently encountered an error that erased the Norwood Classic from our online store. We fixed the error and restored this SOM classic to our site, but in the process, we sadly lost all of its reviews.

If you have enjoyed your time wearing your Norwood Classics, please consider leaving a review by following this link to the product page, scrolling to the bottom until you see “Customer Reviews,” and clicking “Leave a review.” Not only do they help our small business grow, but we love reading our community’s inspiring feedback!

Have a different pair of SOMs? Every review helps! We welcome you to write a review if you haven’t done so. Click here to find your shoes.

Check out what recent fans of SOM are saying, and if you have a chance, leaving a review not only lets us hear from you, but your feedback helps reach new customers as well:

"Best shoes I've ever owned! Thanks very much." -D.W. of Western Australia, October 2022

"I just got back from Peru after a 3 week holiday. I had taken just my pair of SOM HiLites, and I have to say they're just fantastic. I used them on all my hikes and treks - up to the Rainbow Mountains, the Machu-Pichu, the Laguna 69 glacier lake. I've been wearing them everywhere and cannot think of any other pair of shoes to wear now. Thanks guys for making such a wonderful and comfortable pair of shoes for me." -K.V., October 2022

"I am currently traveling through Europe and my SOMs are absolutely fantastic. I have to say by far the best shoes ever and that is saying something after 60 years on this earth. Right now we are in the small village of Ettal, about half way thru our travels. Am looking forward to ordering my next pair when I get home!"

-M.S. of Westminster, MD October 2022
