I feel as old as Methuselah sometimes, Sue. <lol>
Clogs are seemingly still popular for clog-dancing competitions. This site;
http://www.morrismen.saddleworth.org.uk/clog.html says that clogs are still worn as safety shoes in some industries. It also has photos of a pair of dancing clogs, one of which shows the soles with the iron caulkers. As I said earlier, those I wore were of the ankle-boot type. My sisters wore clogs similar to those in the photo but without the bells. The toes were more rounded as well.
Linda - George must be as old as Methuselah .. :-))))) ......... I've lived
a very long time on this planet & I've never seen clogs being worn in my
lifetime ... I honestly thought they were a "thing of the past" ... I'm
obviously wrong, eh ... ;-) .....
Very interesting, George. Were clogs the footwear of choice for kids?
- Or were there other choices?
I don't recall anyone here wearing clogs ("back then") - I had oxfords
when I was young - oxfords and "mary janes" - and I always had to have
"taps" on the heels because I wore them down unevenly - but the taps
only covered a small space on the edge of the heel -
