Juttis, Kohlapuris & Mojris: Men, Stock Up On Desi Footwear From This Corner Shop, Off Comm Street
What Makes It Awesome
Sure, the go-to footwear for most men is sneakers or formal shoes, with the latter usually being worn beyond office hours. And then there are the infamous flip-flops that always get the sceptical look whenever worn outside the boundaries of your home. You can change all that and pick yourself a nice comfortable pair of juttis from Shoe Walk. The store’s collection of juttis, Kohlapuris, and mojris did have this Converse-only wearing writer wanting to pick a few pairs for himself.
Shoe Walk’s collection isn’t just limited to simple designs, there are funky ones that come with embellishments, beadwork, felt work, and plenty of bling. Designed for comfortable wear, these Kohlapuris and juttis can be paired with any kind of outfit, be it for brunch or night out with the boys. Finding the shop is a bit tricky, even though Shoe Walk is located just at the entrance of Veerapillai Street, just off Commercial Street. It’s mainly to do with the fact that it’s one of the many footwear shops that line the street. But if you do find yourself at the entrance of the said street, look for the corner shop for Shoe Walk. Your marker is pairs of juttis, Kohlapuris, and mojris all hanging from the ceilings and neatly arranged in colours on racks. And an old uncle sitting on a chair and most likely to call out to you if you catch his eye.
The collection come in all shades of brown and dark colours such as black and blue. We spotted juttis in shades of white as well. Mojris come in simple to grand designs and if you are looking for one to pair with your sherwani, you will find several grand options here. Simple designs that can be worn with shorts, jeans, or just about low-key family events come in shades of black and white. And all of this, starting at only INR 250. Don’t forget to bargain boss!
