Mine or Theirs?

Where were the first klompen made?

The first wooden shoe comes from the Netherlands. The Netherlands have many seas, so people needed a shoe that kept their feet dry while working outside. The shoes were called klompen and they had been cut of one single piece of wood. Today, the klompen are the favorite souvenir for people who visit the Netherlands.
