SUPPLEMENTAL READING:

 

Approximately 3 million pairs of klompen are made each year.[1]

They are sold throughout the Netherlands.

A large part of the market is for tourist souvenirs,

though some Dutch people,

particularly farmers and market gardeners,

still wear them for everyday use.

Outside the tourist industry,

klompen can be found in local tool shops,

local tourist shops and garden centers.

 

The traditional all-wooden Dutch clogs

have been officially accredited as safety shoes with the CE mark

and can withstand almost any penetration

including sharp objects and concentrated acids.

They are actually safer than steel-capped protective shoes

in some circumstances,

as the wood cracks rather than dents in extreme accidents,

allowing easy removal of the clog

and not continued pressure on the toes

by the (edge of the) steel nose.[2]
