What comes to your mind when thinking of Holland? Cheese, tulips, windmills, a mind-altering substance being sold in shops where you might find or might not find coffee and ... of course – wooden shoes! I have never had the honour of trying on authentic Dutch clogs. As they probably feel as uncomfortable as they sound, I chose to buy soft „wooden“ shoes at Amsterdam airport a while ago. (What else can you do while waiting for a connection flight ...) So I thought I research a bit on Dutch wooden shoes and here I want to show you some outstanding models.
The "Münsterländer Holzklumpen" proove that also Germans have a sense for nice wooden shoes indeed.
Some models are really elegant. Seen on bluedelft.com .
This model I discovered at putinstyle.com . Don't ask me what this has to do with the Russian president ;-)

When thinking of wooden shoes, the designer Patricia van Lubeck sets the standards for extraordinary models.
My soft clogs from the airport in Amsterdam - convenience meets "taste".
