Be comfortable and stylish while supporting local people creating traditional works of art. Our Moon and Star shoes are cut and sewn completely by hand and have been perfected by only using specific types of genuine leather for each of the different sections of the shoe.
The sole is made from tanned buffalo while the upper sections are from cow skin and the inner lining is made from sheepskin. The inner sole is cowhide and the outer brim of the shoes are goatskin. In order to prevent static electricity, the shoe is earthed by adding clay between the sole and inner lining. For the stitching, twine coated in beeswax is used. The addition of a rubber sole has given these shoes a modern touch as well as greater protection against diverse environments. The rubber sole means your Moon and Star shoes will now last even longer.

Feel free to care for your leather Moon and Star shoes by using standard leather conditioners and oil based treatments to maintain the quality and look of your shoes. If they get dirty, you may use a dry cloth to wipe away any dirt and then some warm water to clean the area.
Please be aware that Yemeni shoes are not waterproof. In the case that they do get wet or soaked pleased use a cloth absorb as much water as you can then leave your shoes to dry away from sunlight or direct heat.
Be sure to wear your Yemeni shoes on alternate days as the product is made from natural materials so they need a “breathing” period between wears.
