Unfortunately, almost all wooden shoes ended up as firewood once they were worn out, meaning historic wooden shoes are rare. You can see one of the Netherlands’s biggest and widest wooden shoe collection at our wooden shoe museum at De Zaanse Schans. Our collection is constantly updated and new pieces are added yearly.
If you have or know anyone who has special wooden shoes in their possession and would like to part with them, please send us an email or give us a call. We are very honored to preserve your museum piece for generations to come.
