A pair of red wooden clogs similar to those worn by most residents of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, France, as the war wore on and shoes became harder to come by.

This pair of clogs was made for the donor by her father, Samuel Heritier, who had learned a variety of useful crafts from his own father during WWI. Unlike the clogs worn during the war by the older residents, that were blackened and then polished, the donor's clogs were tinted a bright red, as was the fashion among the young people of Le Chambon.
