Chinese Clogs

These are chinese clogs. People used to wear these clogs, as they have thick wooden soles, so that their pants will not get dirtied on muddy water. These clogs are favourite in the bathroom too. My mom in law still has a pair in her bathroom.

Clog making is a dying trade. I used to wear them when I was young. You can view JC post, she has more colourful clogs in her photo.

I remember those clogs my grandma used to wear. They are called "Bakya" here in the Philippines.

I have only heard about clogs from the Netherlands; we had Dutch neighbours when I was young. Your clogs are practical too and so colourful.
