Barefoot shoes are the closest to Earth walking than anything else

We have decided to put our 2 cents In the barefoot shoe game. Thaqafah has a new ,leather ,stylish ,handmade,barefoot shoe with padded bottoms for light indoor/outdoor walking.

The idea for these barefoot shoes was first hatched after thinking of an easier alternative for women to change into when their feet hurt them after walking in heels all day. So instead of walking completely barefoot because of sore feet, or wearing bulky sneakers with a dress or skirt, thn just slip into some chic, lightweight barefoot shoes.

  

So here’s the result in brief, after searching for cobblers and sending samples for the right fit. Hope everyone likes them, and finds them useful for all of your barefoot, stylish needs. They come in a small range of colors for now, but we plan on expanding the color and style range with each collection.

Barefoot shoes:  sizes 7-12 for both men an women……….

Tunisia has got it going on folks

Soooooo, turns out that Tunisia also has babouche that they produce as well. I have to tell you that these nations have some of the flyest footwear in the world. Right up there with Turkey, Spain, India,Italy, Portugal, and Mexico, in my shoe making masters book.

The designer world has been scoping and copying these styles for years, and it’s time to introduce them to the world at large for who and what they are and come from.

That is what Thaqafah is all about, aiding the artisans of these countries to bring the old with a new modern twist, along with keeping the shoes trendy without compromising tradition and quality.
Love love these shoes (la sigh).
