DUSSHERA, DHALPUR, KULLU, HIMACHAL PRADESH, INDIA.

Variety counts.

Buying shoes take on a different dimension underneath a brightly illuminated tent in Kullu’s Dhalpur Grounds, as shoe sellers spread out an extensive variety for interested buyers to make their pick.

Held once a year, Dusshera is a heaven for buyers with economical budgets as well as those who like to think beyond showrooms. Haggling can bring prices even further down and shoppers get to choose from a range that includes anything and everything.

Think your shoe shop lacks variety? Step into one of these. From high ankle boots, low ankle boots and comfortable snickers to imported moccasins, suede, leathers, the locally manufactured sandal and sometimes even your favourite global brand, you’ll find them right here.

Size depends on how lucky you get.
