Clogs were a popular form of footwear in Britain from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, when they began to become perceived as unfashionable, utilitarian and a sign of poverty. The craft of clogmaking has since declined almost to extinction and there are very few skilled craftsmen still practising the art of clog sole cutting today. This book examines the origins and development of clogs and the processes used in their manufacture. Jeremy Atkinson, an expert clog maker, discusses the various designs of these unique shoes, and their place in the social structure, which may ultimately have led to their decline.
