Persian Style Boot

Fancy Persian Boots Fancy Persian Style II Very Fancy Persian Boots Fancy Persian Style I
Jalute's Persian Boots Persian with personal design Plain Persian Boots Plain Persian High Point Boot

Styled after boots of the Middle East from about 1100 to 1800, the Persian boot is a most unique boot. Also called a "pointy toed or curly toed" boot or Mongol boot, the Persian boot and shoe is characterized by an upturned toe and elegant flowing lines. If you have a middle Eastern persona you may also want to check out the  SCA Boot  page as it also is very characteristic of the same period. Note that the Persian boots of late period more resemble cowboy boots in construction which are more stiff.  The Persian boots, like all my boots, are soft!

The Persian boot is superb fighting boot, although steel toes are not an option, the upturned toe gives added protection to the toes.  The heel is double thick to give good ankle support and I recommend ankle laces or a buckle for fighting in the Persian boot.

Turkish Style Boot or Persian Low Point Boot

Persian Low Point Boots

Above is the Turkish Boot also known as the low point Persian boot for those who want a more subtle look to the boot. The top of the boot is smooth with no seam down the front of the boot. It is representative of Turkish and Janissary boots and late period Russian Nobility.

Ottoman Style I Boot Ottoman Style II Boots

Above are the NEW Ottoman designs based on period Ottoman Turk illuminations and architecture.  The boot designs are two layers/colors and massive amounts of appliqué work in a standard pattern and are $500 with other options extra.

Middle Eastern dancers should ask for a thin dancing sole. Fighters should order ankle support. Stylized designs can be added at additional cost; cost will vary according to the desired design. By selecting the options below, Fancy Extras, you can make your own unique look!
