July 19, 2017

Young boys in the Iranian city of Marivan wearing traditional handmade shoes, called Kalash, pose for a photo, July 18, 2017. A delegation from UNESCO paid a visit to Marivan the same day to take final steps to register the city on the world heritage list for its Kalash. Kalash is a particular lightweight and breathable footwear made of natural cotton and leather. The mostly white colored shoes are frequently worn by youth and seniors equally.
