Leather isn't the popular choice, although it's available even in India. Rubber/vinyl/plastic are at number one and those are worked till they dissolve, which takes about 3 months in Indian manufacturing quality, road condition and outdoor storage. Just like tires on Indian cars and motorbikes, footwear isn't dumped when eroded and cracking but kept in use through stitching, re-surfacing soles utilizing used tire plys, or as a second pair. Clogs and shoes are often cut into chappals when deteriorate.
