Wooden shoes, or clogs have been made for centuries. In french they are called ”sabots” Typically they were worn by farmers and working class people. When the french workers in the cloth industry were replaced by machines, they threw their wooden sabots into the machines destroying the mechanisms. This is where the word ”Sabotage” came from.
Anyway, I can’t deny that wooden shoes were widely worn for daily work. And they have a point, apparently they are healthy for the feet, they are warm in winter, and you can have many horses stand on your feet without being bothered with it. They hurt your instep (they did mine) but I suppose you’d get used to it. And I always knocked them against the bones of my ankles wich is very painful.
So a couple of women in workclothes and clogs for you.
Painting clogs is fashionable nowadays
For an encore: I found this cute couple
