Netherlands Local Customs: 288 reviews and 290 photos


A typical Dutch! Clogs are known as Dutch shoes. Since I arrived here, I was trying to figure out what the main purpose of the wooden shoes is. So far I found two asnwers. First, is that your feet are always clean and dry. In such a "wet" country like the Netherlands it is a great solution. Another purpose is that the shoes are very strong and protect your feet in case that a horse accidently steps on them
