A twist on the traditional wooden shoe

“Lotus Slippers” and Chinese Foot Binding

Perhaps no other shoe in history has provided so much cultural fascination and ethical revulsion than the traditional Chinese practice of foot binding. Undertaken by (or enacted upon) young girls between the ages of 5 and 7, the binding process entails the breaking of the bones in the foot, and subsequent warping and (sometime) mutilation of the foot in order for it to remain a tiny size, ideally no longer than three inches in length (known as a “golden lily” by practitioners).

In C14th old English, the word clog meant a lump of wood and the term only gradually came to refer specifically to shoes carved out of a lump of wood. Hard wearing and, more importantly, cheap to make, wooden clogs were the working man's (and woman's) footwear in many communities
