It takes several steps to make a pair of these arty shoes, and there are different people responsible for each step. Making the shoe vamp is on women, who sew the parts together with large needles. Then comes the duty for men: They craft the sole in their workshops and after everything is ready, the parts are assembled together to create the final product. If necessary, Giveh makers coat the welt and framing with glue in order to prevent the penetration of water.
