Natural Stone Shoe versus Dutch wooden shoe !


People from all over the world still think that the Dutch wear clogs or wooden shoes every day. Contrary to popular
belief, most Dutch people dont wear clogs anymore. The only group of people that still wear them are rural
workers.
Nature sometimes play games and despite all rights reserved for Dutch wooden shoes , Nature makes them
since a long time ago ! Natural Dutch Stone shoe was created some millions years ago , while Dutch wooden show is
much younger !!
