229 Vintage Guizhou Minorty Ethnic Community Shoes

Beautiful hand crafted embroidered shoes from the ethnic minority in Nayong, Guizhou China.

Built-in indigo dyes socks.

Base consists of 4 layers of leather

Metal Studs underneath.

The lace is only on one show. I cannot tell if one is missing or whether it was always intended for only one show to have the lace to tie to the others for hanging up.

Unique and rare set from a vanishing culture.

Early-mid 1900s.
