Finding the perfect footwear when it comes to the summer time can be difficult. You need something comfortable that’s not going to rub when your feet get warmer in the summer heat, yet you want a beautiful shoe that’s going to compliment your outfits and simply look amazing. Multani Khussa or simply Khussa (Urdu: کُھسّہ), is a style of Saraiki handcrafted footwear produced in Multan, Pakistan, and have become very popular in fashion wear all around the world. Today we’re going to talk about why khussas are this summer’s must have fashion accessory and why you’d absolutely love them.
The first thing anyone looks for in a shoe is the design, and khussas definitely don’t disappoint in this department. With a range of styles, materials and colours, you’re bound to find the right kind of khussa for you. Because khussas often have gemstones, sequins and beading incorporated into the design, they can take any outfit up to the next level. You can choose from almost any colour you can dream of and find the ideal pair of shoes for you.

Comfortable to wear
The second thing people take into consideration when buying new shoes is how comfortable they’re going to be, especially when you’re wearing them for long periods of time. Khussas are handcrafted with high-quality leather, which unlike most leather shoes not only promises longevity, but khussas mold themselves to the shape of your feet for optimal comfort.
Take these eye catching Flamincino Yellow for example. With most other shoes with this design, you’re likely to experience discomfort around the toes and the heel no matter how much you wear in the shoes. With khussas, once you have broken in your shoes, they will become more comfortable the more you wear them! Pro tip: it’s recommended to break your shoes in by wetting your feet slightly and walking around the house with them on before wearing them out. This will help break them in and begin the comfortable experience that khussas will give.
Even with slip on khussas like these Lily Gold shoes, once you have broken the khussa in, they will become more and more comfortable with time and wear. This is because of the high-quality leather used in handcrafting these stunning shoes, whereas other manufacturers use faux leather and plastics which are less than comfortable.
Pair well with many outfits
The third thing people look for when shopping for shoes is how well they will pair with typical outfits you’d wear. As briefly mentioned above, khussas can dress up any casual outfit or compliment even the smartest outfit. Traditionally, khussas are worn on special occasions, but you can use them for comfortable, stylish and unique everyday shoes.

Keep your feet cool
Speaking of keeping your feet cool, the last thing you want in the summer heat is sweaty feet. Many brands with similar designs and shaped shoes will cause your feet to sweat, making the shoes slippery and cause them to rub and blister your feet. This is simply down to the lower quality materials used in everyday wear shoes. Khussas are made from high-quality leather that mold to the shape of your feet over time, therefore won’t cause your feet to sweat in the summer heat and will stay in place without causing blisters.

However, with khussa shoes you can choose from a wide range of styles to suit your personal style and needs. From simple thong flip flops to beautiful and exotic designs like these Sea Angels, you’re bound to find the right kind of khussa for you.As you can see, there are a plethora of reasons why khussas are this summer’s must have accessory.
