Commentaires : Clogs have been worn as shoes for hundreds of years. Clogs had their hay day in Britain around the time of the industrial revolution. Workers in the mills, mines, iron, steel, and chemical works, workshops and factories needed strong cheap footwear. 1840 to 1920 saw great popularity of the wooden soled shoes. Working class people associated wearing clogs with poverty, and as mass produced boots and shoes became more affordable the clog rapidly disappeared, and people who once looked down on clog wearers as uncouth now look back with fondness to a "simpler" time. The favourite woods for hand cut soles are Alder, Ash, Birch, Willow and Popular. Leather that was traditionally used in clog making was a wax and oil impregnated "kip" inferior leather mainly imported from India. This was split from a thicker cow hide from a young beast or a calf and tumbled in a drum with a mixture of tallow, animal and vegetable oils and waxes. The wax and oils made it almost totally waterproof.
