Stylish footwear can cause problems, such as this circa 1900 German cinderella shows.

Text says: Farewell to corns. Immediate relief.
Beneath figure on left: Before, Life is torturous
Beneath figure on right: After, Life is a joy

Not sure what they are selling...probably corn plasters.

Can these be worn or are they just for decoration?

The mailman on skates! In very cold winters in the Spreewald region of Germany (close to Berlin) mailmen got around most quickly on ice skates. I found a scan of an old post card (ca. 1900) which might have been the reference for the stamp's artist, Ernst K÷▀linger, 1994. Even today the mail in the Spreewald comes by way of the many canals, but they no longer freeze over as in bygone years.

Globi is an adventurous figure in children's books. Originally designed to be a mascot for the Globus company in 1932, he is now a bird any Swiss child will know. He travels the world and even delivers mail on in-line skates.

Skating on the many canals of the Netherlands has become a rare pleasure, they simply don't freeze solidly enough to be really safe. And when they are safe, many people are out there enjoying the sport.
