    Hi all! I hope that can help me in my search for cool pointy aladdin type shoes.
    I have been on Indian and Moroccan sites, but I cannot figure out how to order- size- everything. Also, I have tried to contact them for help and they do not respond. I am assuming that they don't want a non-muslim ordering their products? I could be wrong... ANYONE?

    THANKS!!!! :heart:

    Dont be too hasty...it depends on what company or shop are selling them on websites. Maybe the Moroccan sites yo have contacted dont sell to the public?

    I wish I could help you, but I don't know where you can find shoes like that. Sorry!

    i doubt that really -- was the morocan site in arabic or french?
    you can ask what sizing system they use...

    do you still have the link to those websites?

    if you live in any european capital, try the arabian/indian market areas,
    they will be very easy to locate, also cheap AND original.

    im sorry if i disturb you wit my advice now, but if you have a big foot size, then an alladin would look a bit funny and clumsy on your feet. I own a pair of such myself and i have to admit that with my size 36-37 it looks like 43, and i only can wear them under wide pants. But anyway, dont have to listen to me, decide yourself! :blush:

    many think muslims hate people that don't follow their religion :wacko: personally, i have been to muslim countries and have been treated so well i kept visiting back. they're such warm and welcoming countries, it saddens me to hear somebody would think that of them :flower: :blush:


    the reason they may not asnwer to you is not everybody speaks english!! i would make an effort and email them in french. you can go to world.altavista.com and translate your text there. it won't be accurate but if you let them know you are not fluent, it'll be ok with them.

    as of the size. many places use the european sizing. european shoes are generally wider than american, so i'd get a smaller size if your feet are too narrow.

    There's this website : Reems

    They ship from Texas, USA so it should be pretty cheap if you live in the states. They don't have as much shoes as the Khussa site but there might be something you'll like. Hope this help! ^_^

    Another veiw.

    They're made out of leather and gold thread. They were damn!!! expensive, handmade. A gift for a wedding. These ones are expensive, but, you could probably get a good pair for £40. Remember to get leather, and you may have to oil them.
    They are dead comfortable to wear. Remember to oil them if they are leather.
