History of wooden clogs - from the working environment to the Catwalk
Wooden clogs shoes originated in England, where they were used as working shoes. Afterwards, the path of wooden clogs led to Scandinavia and the Netherlands, where they became known as "clogs". Since shoes with wooden soles are practical and robust, they are still ideally suited as shoes for medical staff or as kitchen work shoes.
In the fashion world, the comfortable holland wooden shoes first gained popularity in the 1970s. At that time, wooden clogs were used as a unisex model. Their wearers were characterised by a flowing head of hair and a weakness for combining wooden shoes with flared trousers. Today, clog shoes are not only found among hippie fashion lovers, but are also very popular by completely different types of women and fashion styles.
Fun fact: the dutch wooden shoe with leather cap is called a "sabot" in French. At the time of the beginning of agricultural mechanisation, French farm workers threw their clogs - their sabots - into the mowing and threshing machines that took away their jobs. The sabots blocked the mechanics and this made the machines unusable. This is how the term "sabotage" emerged.

High-quality rubber inserts in the sole make the wooden shoes flexible and comfortable, as the feet can roll gently when walking.
