Szegedi slippers « Reloaded » collection 20182019

The so-called « szegedi slippers » are one of the renowned national cultural heritage of Hungary. The living tradition of creating, wearing, using this shoe-style has been signed on UNESCO National Cultural Heritage List last year. The great news was announced officially on 14th September 2018 at the hungarian Parliament.

Sallay Handmade – Bridal szegedi slippers, original 2015

The shape and the visuality came from the time of the turkish occupation in Hungary and soon it became an accessory piece of the national ethnic outfits. Nowadays the technic of the handcrafted production process is fading away. There are only a few cobbler who knows the sewn sole and heel fixing process by hand.

My cultural mission is to draw attention to this unique piece of footwear accessory so I designed a new line and created a capsule collection titled « Reloaded ». I imagine my new styles will be a part of the cosmopolitan fashion trends and excites the fantasy of a shoe-addict woman.
