Female leather shoes called “postoly”. Ivano-Frankivsk region of Ukraine (western part of the country), the 2nd half of the 20th century. Each shoe is made by hand from one whole piece of leather and richly adorned with stamping on leather, colorful sequins, beading, metal decorations, and 3 brass buckles. These shoes look really festive.

The bootlegs are actually very high but folded up twice. There is a decorative sewn pattern on the bootlegs. The heels are made from pieces of leather glued together.
