Very rare and unusual item. The insteps are made of rice straw, The soles are hemp rope studded with nails, the inner soles have thin hairy animal skin and cotton velvet straps. The strap divides toes inside. The piping is made of cotton. Generally in good condition but not good for practical use. The first half of the 20th century. L:24cm W:8.5cm H:7.5cm
