Old Vietnamese clogs

According to history books, clogs appeared in Vietnam quite early. Some ancient Chinese documents such as Nam Viet chi, Giao Chau signed that Ba Trieu (in the 3rd century) wore ivory clogs.

In Tho Ha ancient village in the past, on cold winter days, when women went to festivals, they often wore clogs made from bamboo. Indoor clogs are hewn of wood, with a curved nose to protect the toe, with a vertical strap made of rattan instead of a leather strap that closes horizontally like modern clogs.

In the past, in Tho Ha ancient village, people cut their own clogs to sell. The clog here has a very characteristic shape, that is, the nose is slightly curved up, there is a hole in the front of the nose, a hole from the top down, a horizontal hole in the back. The strap of the clog is a string of astringent fabric. The sandals are similar to the current Japanese sandals.

Besides this type of clog, there are also wooden clogs for men and women. Women’s clogs are hewn slightly at the middle of the waist, men’s shoes without waist should be called canoe clogs. The clogs produced in this region are unpainted, keeping the white color of the wood. The clogs made in Tho Ha ancient village are painted in one or two colors (usually black or brown). Only rich people wear painted clogs. Some places call clogs don’t, so there is an idiom “Sloppy feet” indicating wealth and luxury.
