The Jooti is a curved closed shoe, usually made of cured leather and subsequently embroidered/embellished. It is indigenous to an India that is very rarely seen now, the India of royalty and grace and curved, embroidered elegance.

Now relegated to wedding- or festival-wear, the jooti still lives on in its tiny paper toy counterparts sold outside the Bara Imambara in the historic city of Lucknow, but only just.

Ethnicwear is as much of a tradition as the occasions it makes an appearance on. Which is perhaps deplorable, but that's how it is.
