Ethnic Fun! Khussa Indian Shoes
Khussa shoes are fabulous beaded flats that have been around since the 17th century during the Mughal Empire of India. Of course, back then they were created using actual gemstones and real gold thread instead of beads and sequins. That's ok; we love khussa Indian shoes just as they are without the price tag that comes with real gems!
Our khussa shoes are made in the same way as traditional Indian shoes and as such, they’re a little different to break-in than other shoes. There is no left or right shoe when purchased new. You break-in Indian shoes to create a custom left and right, giving you a super comfortable fit. The more you wear them, the more comfortable these fabulous beaded women’s shoes become!
Our khussa shoes are sized for a traditional fit with your toes all the way to the tip of the shoes. If you like extra room in the toe area, you can size up. If you are a US size 8, you should be a Beachcombers size 8. If you are US size 8 - 8.5 you are likely a size 8. If you are an 8.5 - 9, you are likely a size 9. Check our khussa shoe sizing page for everything you need to know about finding your khussa shoe size.
Khussa Shoes as Wedding & Special Occasion Shoes
Khussa shoes are also known as Punjabi shoes, mojari, juti, juttis, or belly dance shoes. While great for dancing, khussa shoes can be worn with anything. They’re great for any occasion from every day with jeans or as special occasion shoes when paired with wedding gowns, belly dance costumes and Renaissance costuming.
