  1. Place a blank sheet of paper on a hard floor and stand with one bare foot on top of it.
  2. Using a pen or pencil, mark the paper at the back of your heel bone, and at the end of your longest toe.
  3. Using a tape measure or a ruler, measure the distance between these two points in a straight line.
  4. The length indicated is your foot measurement. Use this value to figure out your JUJU size as per the above chart.

This design was inspired by Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, who orbited the earth forty-eight times. She was only 26 years old then, and she inspires us to this day. The pink against the black backdrop of this design represents her - a woman in space, working against the odds to achieve an unheard-of, and near-impossible, goal.

The design is made using aari and zardozi hand-embroidery work, with added gaanth work to select elements of the pattern. The mirror work takes its inspiration from the traditional mirrorwork of Kutch (Gujarat, India). Each pair takes an artisan 10-11 hours to complete.

Sizing:

Our sizing follows international standards. If you’re undecided between 2 sizes, we suggest picking the larger size. Do follow our Size Advisor to figure out your JUJU size. If the shoes are unavailable in your size, drop us an email on info@thejujustudio.com, and we will do our best to order a bespoke pair for you.

Artisan’s note:

All our products are handcrafted from start to end. Slight variations in embroidery, color and make are to be expected. This ensures that your pair of JUJUs is a one-of-its-kind product.

Care instructions:

JUJUs are literal works of art and must be handled as such. We recommend always resting them in the special organic muslin JUJU shoe-bags provided with each pair. This will keep them away from everyday dust, and looking bright and shiny. Any loose dirt may be removed with a mild cleanser using a soft dry brush or cloth. And should you ever require it, JUJUs must only be dry cleaned.
