strain, and leg and foot discomfort. The alder wood footbed has a raised
heel, anatomically correct and toe well. Leather uppers in many colors and
styles and non-skid polyurethane soles. Maud and Thomas are the owners
of Dala Clogs in Lindsborg, Kansas. From Mora, Sweden to the plains of Kansas,
Maud and Tom-Clogs have headquartered their factory and import business
in Lindsborg since 1997. Maud applies her expertise in Kurbits painting
to the leather uppers of Dala Clogs. Having learned her craft from the renowned
Klas Hanspers in NusnSs, Sweden, Maud utilizes a style nearly two hundred
years old. Kurbits painting is most recognized as the decorative painting
seen on the Dala Horse from her hometown of Mora, Sweden. Kurbits design
traditionally features floral patterns, using two colors in the artists'
brush at the same time.

A clog is a type of shoe or sandal with a rigid, often wooden, sole.
Clogs were widely worn by workers as protective clothing in factories, mines
and farms. In more developed countries they have been replaced by steel
toe-capped boots, or by rubber boots. In the strictest sense, the term refers
to any article of footgear with (at the least) a wooden sole; traditional
examples include Dutch klompen, French sabots, and Japanese geta, while
more modern versions include Dr. Scholl's "exercise sandals".
In a broader sense, it also applies to any article of footgear that is designed,
either partially or completely, in imitation of some form of traditional
or practical clog, but with a cork, rubber, or plastic sole, but usually
excludes non-wooden platform shoes intended for fashion rather than practicality,
in which neither the sole nor the upper is patterned after European work
clogs. In the late 20th century, the sort of leather-upper clogs that had
long been popular in Scandinavian countries became fashionable, particularly
for women, usually in an open-back style (such clogs are also, technically,
mules), or a slingback style; in the early 21st century, a closed-back version
also became popular with both men and women. Women's fashion sandals with
traditional clog soles have also become popular in recent years. Klompen
are still worn by a small number of older farmers and fishermen in The Netherlands.
In the past, many groups of people in the Netherlands would wear klompen
as their everyday shoes. These clogs are made (mostly) of willow-wood and
provide a warm, insulated and safe form of footgear. Traditionally, a farmer's
klompen have rounded toes, while a fisherman's have pointed toes (like those
of the ornamental klompen made for the tourist trade), to assist in stretching
nets. Mostly, klompen have been replaced by rubber boots. Clogs are still
used today, both in in gardens and road-work, but also for decoration, such
as those intended for tourists for use as flowerpots or wall ornaments.
Traditional Scandinavian-style clogs, particularly when made of either rubber
or plastic instead of wood, are also frequently worn by chefs, doctors,
nurses, and others whose work requires long hours of standing, because of
the support a well-made pair provides (and, in the case of all-plastic versions,
because they are easy to clean, with some heat-resistant plastic hospital
clogs even being autoclave-safe); in such cases, however, more cheaply-made
versions that are neither padded nor contoured, and thus have little or
no support, are not generally regarded as useful. Clogs were tested for
compliance to European safety standards and found to meet those standards.
