Since the event of at the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001, the Western media portrayal of Afghanistan has been nothing but war, military troops, and terror. A country of war has always been the portrayal of Afghanistan in many North American’s mind. The boots reminds me that Afghanistan is more than a country of war, and it is a place filled with culture and tradition.The boots are made by Uzbek people in Northern Afghanistan. The geometric patterns and colourful designs on the boots certainly reflects a traditional and cultural significance about the textiles used by these people. Some research into the traditional dresses of Afghanistan people (particularly Uzbek) have led me to discover that these boots could be a part of the traditional dress for Uzbek people. The connotation of these Afghanistan boots as a piece of fashion garment is supported by the appearance of its weak durability as everyday footwear. The decay on the leather, the thinness of the sole, the extremely light weight of the boots and its interesting shape all constitute as evidences for its display as a fashion statement.
