K is for Klompen

When most people think of the Netherlands a few things come to mind. Windmills, tulips, cheese... and klompen (wooden shoes). Most modern Dutchies don't have wooden shoes in their closet, but many keep a pair in the garage to garden in.

Most of these from the klompenmuseum at Zaanse Schans are a little snazzy for gardening in, and some completely impractical for daily use, but they're fun to look at!
