|Opanak is singular for opanci in Serbian ,a traditional balkan shoe worn at folkloric dances . Here in this photo young boys gather to chat in preparation for a dance demonstration in one of the central squares in Novi Sad , northern Serbia. |
The opanak is a lace free leather made traditional shoe with horn-like ending on toes and is very much part of serbian folk costumes . I like how the straps twist around the ankle like a ballerina ballet shoe . Please note in a workshop how the girls wear their opanci , flat ended and one single loop around the ankle .
Shot in evening low light so had to raise exposure a bit , cropped and sharpened ,1/80 s , f/5 iso 160 in manual mode ,
Thanks for looking ,

It is very interesting to see that Khussa in Pakistan has similar rounded and up tilted toe.
You've found an interesting object to share that's depicting culture. Beautifully caught image in fine details and excellent luminosity. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
