Traditional Dutch Clothing – Holland / Netherlands

close button

DINOLINGO  Wooden shoes are the typical traditional shoe ware. They are remarkably light, comfortable, and actually very good for your feet. They are very handy and safe on a Dutch dairy farm just in case a cow might step on the farmers foot. Wearing wooden clogs protects the farmer’s toes.

In addition to being a semi-safety shoe, wooden shoes are warm. During the winter months people who where them place straw in the shoe as insulation, thus making them very warm. When the wooden shoes get worn out, they are often nailed against a barn or other building wall and used as a place to plant flowers or greenery.
