Peshawari chappal with a golden design

Peshawari Chappal is a traditional footwear of Pakistan worn especially by Pashtuns in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region. The shoe takes its name from the city of Peshawar,[1] where it originates from, while "chappal" is the local word for flip-flops. Peshawari chappal is worn by men casually or formally, usually with the Shalwar kameez dress. Because of its comfortableness, it is used in place of sandal or slipper in Pakistan.

It is a semi-closed footwear which consists of two wide strips where both strips are joined with the sole by crossing each other.[2] The back side has also a strip with a buckle to tie according to the foot size and level of comfort. It is traditionally made with pure leather with its sole often made of truck tyre. It is available in many traditional designs[3] and colors with various variations such as works of golden and silver threads which give the shoe a more elegant look.
