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.

What does your indoor footwear look like and how does it compare to these boots?

In my house, we don't usually wear indoor boots because all the floors are carpeted but I do wear slippers at my grandparents' house, they are somewhat fuzzy. I also used to have those slippers where you look like you have animal feet which was rather cute but hard to walk in. I think these boots kind of remind me of how UGGs are actually used. My friend had told me that Uggs were actually meant as house slippers (like flipflops) rather than how we used them as winter boots.
