Wooden Clogs

Do the Dutch still wear them?

“Klompen” are whole feet clogs. Approximately 3 million pairs of “klompen” are made each year. They are sold throughout the Netherlands. A large part of the market is for tourist souvenirs. However some Dutch people, particularly farmers, market gardeners and gardeners still wear them for everyday use.

Outside the tourist industry, “klompen” can be found best in local tool shops and garden centers. The traditional all-wooden Dutch clogs have been officially accredited as safety shoes with the CE mark and can withstand almost any penetration including sharp objects and concentrated acids.
