Clogs are wooden shoes have a long social history associating with shoes of the peasantry. Cheap, durable and made from available wood, they were commonplace from Scandinavia to France and Northern England. All usually made from a single block of wood but often named differently according to every country. Furthermore, they were popular with mill workers in the North of England during the nineteenth century and worn up until the Second World War. On Sundays or festive occasions, the custom was to replace them with leather shoes sporting a silver buckle. They were worn by both sexes and sometimes varnished black with a coloured pattern. Traditional wooden versions are still worn on ceremonial occasions and at dancing events but sadly the number of craftsmen able to make them has significantly reduced.
