The wooden shoes called sabots and clogs are typical in the region of Entre Douro e Minho. For females we find two kinds of clogs - the short clog and the complete clog - while for men there are three types: the poveiro clog (so called because it originates from the Povoa de Varzim), the 'rebelo' clog and the 'chanca rebela' (with a short barrel and closed in the front).
