Essential and existential purchase: Peshwari chapal at Zara
British designer Paul Smith didn’t get get enough grief for ‘copying’ the famous Pakistani men’s shoe which has been around since I was born. (More than that, trying to get away with selling something we can get for less than $10 for close to $600!)
I was excited when he brought these to the world, but a little upset that we as Pakistanis, had never appreciated or tried to promote our traditional Peshwari chapal as we know it. Or other styles that make us unique and fashionable.
Well, too late for that. For me, it wasn’t going to change much except when I discovered these at Zara recently and it did not take me a second of thought or hesitation to jump on this! Ordinarily, I never buy shoes from clothing stores because I fear the quality and comfort level can’t be good compared to original shoemakers. (I wear stuff old ladies wear, so comfort is important!)
All I did was place the order to be picked up in store - to make sure I get to go downtown in the middle of the week to pick up my goodie:)
I can’t say how much I love and feel energised the minute I am Chicago downtown. The buildings, the excitement of tourists and shopping of course gives you instant happiness.
Just click through the images and I would say, if you get a chance to pick these up, you won’t regret the purchase especially at a sale price of $20. Also, they are comfy and easy to wear despite the big, blocky heel. They also have these in a deep bottle green colour.
I broke my rules of not wearing shoes from stores that specialise in clothing. For this sandal, is a must-have!
Hope you like it and thanks for reading!
