Most Dutchmen still wear shoes like ours today; however, there are in some small villages where wooden shoes are still worn. But they are used only outdoors and are left at the farmhouse door. The major demand of wooden shoes comes from people who work in farms or in other industries where they require adequate protection for their feet.
They protect you! Like farmers don’t only find it very convenient to walk in their fields with wooden shoes but these shoes also protect them with any sharp objects. In lots of large souvenir shops the wooden shoe is a souvenirs element, range in price from around €20 – €150.And at some places there is a teaching workshop were wooden shoes are made by a real, old-fashioned artisan.
