those Dallmer shoes were from Germany. The company is located in my town.
I know those shoes. Dallmer produces several plastic shoes, most of them
to glue on. They are used often on racetracks (Tom?). Dallmer also builds
some therapeutic shoes for fillies.
That sandal-type you described is the called "clog" here. I use one as a
"spare tyre" at competition. You can get them in different sizes and could
adjust the width by a kind of bar at the heels. They have two clips on the
front. From the back there are two nylon straps running to the front with
a loop (made of wire) to fix them to the clips. If anybody is interested
in more information I can try to get some from Dallmer - they should have
english info's available.
