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.

The portrait of Afghanistan in North American Media is incorrect, unrealistic with a lot of policy, without science, real history / culture and contemporary life. It is this way because of the nature of Media, which is not independent.
