But what was more amazing was the way the Yunnan minority nationalities women wear them with their lovely and brilliantly coloured traditional costumes. It seems the older women favour these shoes more. And it was only instinctive for me to look at the footwear. Some might even think that I was impolite looking at them from head to toe. But that was exactly what I did when I saw the beautifully dressed ladies coming towards me.
As a result I now long to buy a pair of these military shoes and wear them myself. It would just so suitable and practical for every day wear in a hot and dusty environment.
|Chinese traditional military shoes advertised in the Internet. Really nice.|
|This is another pattern reaching up to the ankle. The camouflage pattern is lovely and the outer sole must be very hardy and long lasting for long walks in the mountains.|
I am really inspired to start wearing them!!
