This is a pair of vintage Hand Carved Wedding Wooden Shoes brought back from a trip to Holland in the 1970's!
Rich with tradition, these chip-carved wooden shoes are a true work of art. Typically given by the groom to his future bride, they now feature Dutch craftsmanship and are finished with a sturdy lacquer finish. These shoes are definitely a collector's item.
To determine your size, trace your foot on a piece of paper, and measure the outline from toe to heel in centimeters. Add one cm to the measurement for comfort.
This pair measures 24 centimeters, the equivalent of a Male size 6/6.5 - Women's size 8/8.5.
Wooden shoes should not fit tightly. There should be a gap the width of your thumb behind your heel after you insert your foot. You should also wear a heavy pair of wool socks for comfort. If your shoes are a bit too large, you can add a second pair of socks to tighten the fit.
