Peshawari Chappal is a type of sandal made from leather, usually with an open toe and a featuring a strap at the back. Peshawari Chappals uppers are made from leather which is then sewn onto the hard sole made of truck tyre. Most men own a pair and wear them daily. Some men buy more expensive pairs of Peshawari chappals to wear at formal events usually paired with the traditional Indian/Pakistani dress of the Shalwar Kameez. Peshawari Chappals were thrust into the limelight in 2014 when British designer Paul Smith designed a pair of shoes based on the traditional Peshawari. The model called ‘Robert’ did not acknowledge the Pakistani origin of the shoe and were sold at a staggering £300, well over 20 times what they would sell for in Pakistan.
