Peshawari Chappal is a widely popular men footwear in South Asia, commonly worn for tradition, culture and fashion. On one side it is everyday shoes for men in India and Pakistan during summer, but for many it is still worn on special festivals like Diwali, Eid, as well as on wedding events like Mehndi, Walima and Baraat. It is normally worn over a Shalwar Kameez or Kurta Pajama.
Peshawari Chappal can be easily distinguished from other sandals, as one can see different pieces of leather overlapping each other to make a grip on the feet. The chappal is best when made using leather, but one can also buy Peshawari Chappals made of synthetic leather and tyre rubber.
Peshawari Chappal because of its unique style and heritage, it can often be seen at weddings events in sub-continent. In fact the Peshawari Chappal is often the first choice for a bridegroom (often called Dulha) to pair with Sherwani.
The brothers of groom and other male relatives attending the wedding too go for Peshawari Chappal on the Mehndi Night.
