Shoes complete the looks and it is hard to imagine an attire to look good unless there is a great pair of shoes complementing it. Shoes can be of many different types just like there are dresses. You could buy your footwear based on what type of occasion you are going to or what type of shoes are most comfortable on your feet. A lot of people would sacrifice safety for fashion but that’s not a recommended practice. It does not matter how fashionable a particular pair of shoes looks, the most important thing is that it should fit your feet.
Wearing uncomfortable shoes can not only cause wounds on your feet but can also result in permanent bone and joint related injuries. Secondly, if you are into wearing heels you should make sure that you can handle heels. You don’t want to falter all the time or walk in a very odd fashion just to save yourself from walking. Once you have taken care of the safety regarding footwear you can go ahead and try on all the different types of shoes from your own country and from around the world. Have a look at these cool footwear items that could be new for the westerners.
Chinese Folk Wedges
If you are tired of wearing the styles your local population is always wearing and want to try out something new, these folk shoes from China will be a currant of fresh air for you. The heel on these wedges is very unnoticeable and they look best with the ankle straps. The back part of the shoe is raised to over not just your heel but the area above it up to ankle or an inch higher too. The main characteristics of these shoes are the floral designs that are embroidered. The red, black, turquoise and white are the most common colors available in these shoes.
The Turkish Shoes
Turkish shoes that traditionally come from 18th century are also quite popular in South East Asia. In Pakistan they are known with the name of Khussa. These are completely flat shoes with a very unique shape. The front of the shoes is pointy with the end of the front folded backwards. These shoes are always embellished with a lot of stuff. They are often embroidered and that’s where they leave every other type of shoes behind. The embroidery is always done in very bold colors such as gold and red. In most cases you will find gold embroidery on dark blue background or red. However, these are the shoes that only the bold people or celebrities can try because they are so unusual for the western culture. The good thing is that they are available in both male and female versions.
Chappal is Urdu for slippers. Once again, these are slippers that are flat and even when they have heels they are so small and thin that you can say there are no heels. These are crafted slippers that are made from hands and contain a lot of leather. They are mostly available in the natural leather color or sometimes there will be darker tones too. There is no doubt that these slippers can make a foot with proper pedicure so beautiful that a singer might end up writing a song about it. They mostly have patterns on them with red puffs for adding colors. They are also among the best custom made shoes as people would like to order them for weddings well before the day comes.
The Native American Shoes
This is another bold yet fashionable take at wearing shoes. It is just impossible to be different from rest of the people when you are wearing the same brands they are wearing. You are going to the same stores they are going and following the same fashion they are following. You have to step out of the queue here and look for something different. That’s when you will see the Native American shoes. The important thing to know here is that even the leather used on these shoes is not the common leather you find on most of the shoes worn today.
These shoes look great with the knee-high design. They are mostly available in natural leather colors such as beige, brown, dark brown. You can also find them in black but that’s not the most suitable color on these shoes. The most prominent thing about these shoes is that they are very comfortable. You will see a lot of patterned studs on them with long stripes of leather covering most part of the shoe. They are almost always flat with zippers on them. You will hardly see any laces on them. Many variants of these shoes are now available fused with the modern styled shoes too.
