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.

In the winter nothing keeps my feet warmer then my mukluks, they are made from a soft dark brown suede. They have a very similar shape to the boots in the picture but my mukluks only feature a little beading on the toe in blue, purple and white beads. The pattern of the beads always reminds me snowflakes. I purchased my boots five years ago in my hometown of Saskatoon from a lovely lady who has a tiny shop that she sells her hand made footwear in. Each shoe is designed and made just by her which makes every pair a true original. She is an amazing artist in her craft and I will always treasure my mukluks.
