About This Item
Everybody over the whole world thinks that all the people in Holland wear wooden shoes. But that's not right!
Only a "few" people in Holland wear wooden shoes, about 5000, maybe more, maybe less, so only a small part of the population
And almost all the people wearing wooden shoes are farmers or people in a nursery. That means that people who need wooden shoes for their jobs, have them as industrial clothing.
Wooden shoes are made by hand, or by machines. Making wooden shoes by hand has almost completly disappeared. Only at some places in Holland you can watch people who make wooden shoes just as in the past, like the old artisans.
