Located in Pathergatti area of the bustling markets near Charminar, Zardozi Shoes evokes a royal spirit.

There are other collections too here but its the collection with stones and zari work that impress the most.

The dazzling footwear pairs are all neatly arranged on the racks. Md. Asrar Ahmed of the shop informs their USP is the handmade work done on the shoes. “Women like stone work and zari ka kaam. These are used for parties and special occasion,” he informs. Look closely and you find that they are in sync with the artistic nature. The golden zari string is woven across shoes in a pattern and bright white stones add to its charm. The designs embellish both the front and the arch of the footwear.

The number of days to make this zari footwear depends on the kind of work, reveals the store manager Khalid. “Sometimes it takes five days to one week to make one pair.

Khalid recalls how the Hyderabadi women always had a choice when it comes to footwear. “Earlier too, women have worn footwear with different designs. Some collections were fancy and some had diamonds and kundan stones on it,” he shares. The price of the collection starts from ₹500 and goes upwards till ₹2000.
