Boots

These boots were made by the Uzbek people in northern Afghanistan. The method in which they are crafted stems from the long Central-Asian tradition of making silk-embroidered leather footwear, horse covers and bags. They are worn both indoors and outdoors. In bad weather, they are usually slipped inside heavy leather overshoes.

MY INDOOR FOOTWEAR IS A BASIC RED KNIT SLIPPER. IT IS BRIGHT SIMILAR TO THESE BOOTS, BUT NOT AS FABULOUS AS THESE ARE. MY FEET STAY WARM, BUT COULD BE WARMER IN SOMETHING LIKE THESE BOOTS!
