Klompen - Dutch Wooden Shoes 🇳🇱 Do you know these shoes are safer than steelcapped safety boots and have their own CE marking? The Dutch people have been using them forever and are still using them now. .
They come in different colour and painting these days. Traditionally, different colour shoes are for different purpose.
Brown is for gardening. 🌷
Red is for dancing. 💃
Blue is for male going to church. 🧔⛪
White with painting is for female going to church. 👩⛪
Pure white with ornaments is for wedding. 🤵👰
Yellow is for farming 🐂🐄, and it is said that this one can be used to smack 🤜 🤵naughty husband that comes home late too.. 🤣

Tomorrow (Sunday, September 29th), Elly Kellner and I are playing a show together in her town of Bergen op Zoom! Elly is being awarded a very special prize by her town that acknowledges her unique artistry. (Go check out her page to learn more!) I keep calling her “Mayor of the Netherlands.” But truly the honor she is receiving is a BIG deal here, and I feel honored to sing with her tomorrow! And to add to the excitement, our fellow Beyond Music friend, Sasha Shlain is traveling here from Switzerland to join us as a special guest!! It’s crazy where life takes you, and I can’t believe I get to reunite with these two amazing humans and make music together in the Netherlands. 📷: Ann Beckers #BergenopZoom#theNetherlands#BeyondMusic#BeyondMusicProject
