I USUALLY WENT TO SCHOOL BAREFOOT

On day, not long ago, a son of a clog maker visited the Shoe Museum. There he told us that on his first day of school he noticed he was the only child wearing shoes. Embarrassed, he decided to took his clogs off, kept them on his satchel and went to the class barefoot just like all his other colleagues. 
The tone is given for a visit to the "Shoemakers Workshop" and "Industrial Production" area. This "dialogue visit" is based on the sharing of histories and experiences related to the footwear theme.
