Another international brand falls for traditional Pakistan Chappals?

Another international brand falls for traditional Pakistan Chappals?

Previously Paul Smith took the idea of Peshwari chappal and now Forever 21 has come up with a line of sandals which it is calling Caleidoscope sandals which are essentially just Kolla Puri for $48 that are generally just for 300 in Pakistan.

To justify the cost, Forever 21 has given the sandals a fancy description which reads ‘A pair of genuine leather sandals by Studio Caleidoscope featuring a tribal-inspired embroidered upper, a slip-on style, and a flat heel. Dust band included’.

Desis around the world owns at least three to four pair of those comfortable, casual sandals so why would a sensible person pay 4900 for juts a Kolla Puri?

Seems like the west is making sure to sell our very affordable comfort shoes way too expensive!
