Chancletas de palo

Chancletas de palo. 1960s. Colección Cuba Material.

El norteamericano José Yglesias, sobre un par de mocasines “inventado” por un artesano habanero, a finales de los sesentas:

One young man in Mayarí wore a very nice loafers with a deep-blue canvas top whose soles were of wood: when flat on the ground the soles looked like a solid piece of leather, but when he brought his foot up and bent it, you saw that the sole was made of quarter-inch strips of wood cleverly fitted together to give the shoe play. He had bought them in Havana from a shoemaker whose specialty this was. (P. 112)
