XVII:8 A group of bhikkhus who wore wooden sandals
Six bhikkhus wearing wooden sandals, and each holding a staff with both hands, were walking to and fro on a big stone slab, making much noise. The Buddha hearing the noises asked Venerable Ananda what was going on, and Ananda told him about the six bhikkhus. The Buddha then explained that one must always be considerate and not disturb the peace. He further exhorted the bhikkhus to restrain themselves in word and deed. From that time onwards the Buddha discouraged bhikkhus from wearing wooden sandals.
