Nawaz Sharif's tiger-skin chappals are ready for delivery, announces shoemaker
“We have been making chappals for country’s VIPs for several years,” he said. “However, I haven’t had the honour of making a chappal for Nawaz Sharif until this January.”
The prime minister paid a visit to Peshawar and wanted a pair of Peshawari chappals. Awami National Party leader Ghulam Bilour asked Jahangir to provide the prime minister with a pair of chappals. “I went to take measurements so I could make him an exclusive pair of chappals,” Jahangir said.
“These chappals were not introduced for commercial reasons. It is a tribute to the services render by Sharif family for the country,” he stated and added, “It takes up to three months to make a single pair of Shikari chappals.”
Shikari chappal is prepared with tiger’s leather, which is rare in the market. Jahangir said the use of tiger’s leather is banned in the market. However, he manages to find it for the customers who wish to wear the chappal, The Express Tribune reported.
The shikari chappal is preferred by customers over Kaptaan chappals owing to a variety of reasons.
“The leather used in shikari chappal is softer as compared to the leather used in the Kaptaan chappal,” he said. “Secondly, Shikari chappal does not have a sweaty sole made of foam, like the one like used in Kaptaan chappal.”
