The advantages of the wooden shoe
Clogs have many advantages. They are comfortable, protective, keep the feet dry and warm and clogs are also healthy for the feet. Another advantage is that you can easily take them on and off. Additionally, clogs are also essential when walking in a muddy environment.
Over the centuries, clogs have been designed to be used for various purposes. Think of the traditional farm wooden shoe, the gardeners clog, wooden shoes for fishing, even a skate clog, the special wooden shoe for the Sunday, and beautifully carved and painted bride clogs. There is even a Dutch clog for horses. In addition to protecting the feet, clogs also tell a lot about the creator and about who is wearing them. Clogs speak their own language.
Something about the history of Dutch shoes

When ordering clogs there are a few things you need to know. Clogs should not be tight. If the foot is in it, there must be space between the heel and the back of the shoe. This space must be a thumb width. Please read our page about size calculation and the size chart before ordering a few clogs. We advise you to wear thick socks in our wooden shoes.
