Dutch Police Clogs

Flipping through the latest issue of Interpol Footwear Daily, Izzy learned that in Holland some police officers wear wooden clogs (appropriately called klompen in Dutch). He imagines that clog-wearing cops running in pairs must sound like a single officer on horseback.


  1. Proof positive that there is no crime in the Netherlands – there’s no way you chase criminals in these.

  3. What are you talking about? They can take off their shoes and chuck them fiercely at a criminal. They’re weapons in themselves! Didn’t you see that one Jackie Chan movie where he dispatches justice with a pair of clogs?

  4. Wouldn’t a cop in pursuit sound like a 2-legged horse? Or two empty halves of coconuts being banged together?

    (No swallow jokes, please!)

  5. They could have used these shoes in “Spamalot”!
