Holland's Best - Natural Wooden Shoes / Houten Klompen
Natural Wooden Shoes
Many, many years ago the Dutch used to wear wooden shoes. People all over the world wonder if they still do... Yes! Not everybody, but some farmers still do. The wooden shoes ("klompen") are great for farming and gardening. Many Dutch use them just for home decoration. That is how you will probably recognize the Dutch who live abroad! Have a good look at their doorstep, you might find some wooden shoes...

you buy them in natural wood. Be creative and paint them yourself!
