A neighbor of mine (an older man) wore shoes like that when he was in the garden all the time. When I was little he once chased me wearing shoes very similar to those pictured above. The reason for chasing me was because I was "trespassing."
Anyhow, I'll never forget how those funky green clog shoes he wore were clacking against the pavement as he ran after me (I guess they were wooden).
