I recently saw a magazine showing pictures of people in the forest who were clog makers.
Lower classes often wore clogs, in France the name for clogs is sabots....this is also linked to the word sabotage. I have read that the lower classes threw their clogs into the machinery in factories ie sabotage, also that people associated the wearing of clogs to people who were not very productive.
Years back I wore wooden clogs but stopped when I had a puppy in the house, they get under your feet and little paws get squashed. She still gets under my feet but is a whole lot bigger.
This year I spent the summer wearing a pair of imitation crocs..sabots with holes in the top, very comfy they are too.
