Why should you choose Yemeni?
Reasons to choose
Since Yemeni is made of genuine leather, the sweat formed on the feet is drawn out thanks to its air permeability. That's why the "breathing shoe" analogy is made for the Yemeni. It is seen that the problems such as sweating, odor, fungus and eczema on the feet of people who start to wear Yemeni disappear in a short time.
While the modern shoe industry mainly uses plastic and various chemicals, it offers a natural shoe experience with all its parts, from the sole to the inner lining, from the sewing thread to the adhesive.
Those who wear Yemeni for the first time often say that they feel as if they are in direct contact with the soil. This is explained by the absence of plastic or any other chemical substance between the soil and the foot. The more natural the soil is, the more natural and healthy is the buffalo skin, which we call the leather between your feet and the soil. The skin of buffaloes living in water and marshes is resistant to water. These skins are thick and sturdy. When you wear the Yemeni, you allow the bad energy in your body to be quickly absorbed by the soil. Some Internal Medicine Physicians advise diabetics to wear a "Yemen" in order to "slow down the progression of diabetic foot ulcers". It is recommended that people in this situation wear Yemeni without socks.
Yemeni; It offers an indescribable foot comfort that can not be worn for years due to its practical wear, lightness, flexible structure, texture of the lining and softness like dough.
The History of Yemeni Shoes
These comfortable shoes, made entirely of leather, have a history of 700 years. It was first produced in the North African country of Yemen. Yemeni shoes have been a stylish shoe that can be worn by people with high social status since the day they were produced. It was almost forgotten in this period with the effect of cheap and unhealthy plastic shoes that became widespread from the 19th century. Gaziantep, a city with a high commercial capacity in the southeast of Turkey, has given the Yemeni model a chance to a second life. Yemen shoes produced for the local people aroused curiosity in Europe and America when they were used in big movies like Turuva. This shoe, which is preferred without hesitation by people who care about foot health and have high intellectual background, has gained followers in America and Europe over the years.
How do we do it?
We have a boutique workshop where we work with people who had to leave their homes due to the war in Syria. Turkish Yemeni shoes are still made by hand using traditional methods. The quality of leather used in production is high. 5-8 mm thick natural buffalo leather is used on the soles of Yemen shoes. Calf leather is used on the shoes. Calf leather, which is processed to have a velvety softness, is used on the inner surface of the shoe. It is produced in various colors and models from 20 to 45 for both women and men. The threads used by Yemeni shoemakers in sewing are pure cotton and these threads are waxed with beeswax. After the sewing process, Yemen shoes are re-molded and ready for 1 day. If Yemeni is made of quality leather, it offers comfort. We recommend that you stay away from low-quality fakes.
