Mantsjoe boot

Annelies Wouters

Avant-garde leather heelless platform with layered and ruched-leather shaft, 3rd year collection for SASK, d’Academie Beeld Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, 2020.

Inspired by the Manchu (Mantsjoes), an ethnic minority in China. They are sometimes called ‘red-tasseled Manchus’ in reference to the ornamentation on their traditional hats.
