Find Your Khussa Indian FLAT Shoe Size (Beachcombers Brand of khussa Indian flats)

Find sizing for Beachcombers Indian sandals here.

Beachcombers khussa Indian shoes are sized by physical shoe measurements to ensure accuracy.  If you are a US size 8, you should be a Beachcombers size 8. If you are US size 8 - 8.5 you are likely a size 8.  If you are an 8.5 - 9, you are likely a size 9. 

Each shoe listing will let you know the approximate sizes the shoes should fit.
 
For example, some shoe styles may say fits size 7.5 - 8 and other styles may say fits
size 8 - 8.5 depending on the measurements of that specific shoe. 

If you are in between sizes, wide width, or like a bit of extra room in the toe, size up and add a pair of Khussa insoles.  Every shoe manufacturer has slightly different sizing, so for a perfect fit the first time, read on...

*All Beachcombers khussa flat shoes are sized to be worn in the traditional style, with your toe all the way to the tip of the shoe.  If you like a bit of extra room in the toe area, size up. Again check the listing to see the size range the shoe fits.

Measure Your Foot

Take a measurement of your largest foot and compare to the chart below and the individual Khussa shoe listing you are interested in.  Take the measurement three times to ensure an accurate reading.  Add 1/4 to 1/2 inch to the measurement and get the next size up.

The key measurement is the length. The shoe width measurement may be smaller than the measured width of your foot.

Measurement Tips:
Be sure to take your measurement on a hard surface, as carpet will give you an inaccurate reading.  Take the measurement three times to ensure an accurate reading.

  • Trace your foot on a piece of paper and then use a ruler or tape measure to find your actual measurement. 
  • Lay out a tape measure and line your heel up exactly with the zero mark.  Put all your weight on your foot and use that measurement.

NOTE: Use common sense.  If you normally wear a size 10, but your measurement is showing a size 8, then something is not right.  If in doubt, size up.  Each shoe listing will let you know the approximate sizes the shoes should fit.  For example some shoe styles may say fits size 7.5 - 8 and other styles may say fits size 8 - 8.5 depending on the measurements of that specific shoe.

For Supreme Comfort and Ultimate Fit in Your Khussa Shoes...

Breaking-in Khussa Indian Shoes

by Jody Rogers

Beachcombers! ethnic Khussa shoes are made in Pakistan with very high quality leather.  A few Beachcombers! styles such as khussa heels and some mules have high quality man-made uppers with leather soles.

Your khussa should be stiff and hard when new but will mold and conform to the exact shape of your feet and become soft and comfortable upon breaking them in.  Note, there is no right and left shoe when new.  You create a custom right and left shoe when you break them in.
 

Pictures of New and Broken-in Khussa Shoes >

The pictures to the right show a new Beachcombers! Khussa shoe with a Khussa shoe that has been worn a few times.  These shoes are the same size.  Notice that the new Khussa are narrow and stiff, but the worn Khussa are wider, soft and have conformed to the shape of the wearer's foot.


Break-In Instructions for Beachcombers! Khussa:

Beachcombers! Leather Khussa Shoes:
Wet your feet and wear your khussa around the house for an afternoon.  Occasionally rewet your feet.  If they pinch or rub anywhere, you can put on a band-aide with a cotton ball under it to help stretch the leather in that spot (for example:  on the back of the heel or on your big toe).  Every time you wear your Beachcombers! Khussa they will become more comfortable as they mold to the shape of your feet.

Beachcombers! Khussa with Man-Made Uppers:
(Mules/High Heels)
Put on a pair of thick socks and wear your Khussa shoes around the house for an afternoon.  If they pinch or rub anywhere, you can put on a band-aide with a cotton ball under it to help stretch that spot (this will not stretch the area as much as it does with leather Khussa).

If your Beachcombers! Khussa are tight, take care to properly break them in.  You would be surprised at how much they can stretch to conform to your feet.  If you have broken in your Khussa shoes, but they are still a touch tight, try wearing
damp socks with your Khussa for an afternoon.

If your Beachcombers! Khussa are too big, simply add foam insoles.  You can add full insoles or just toe or heel inserts.  You still want to follow the break-in instructions above to make your Khussa comfortable and form to the shape of your feet.

Tips & Care

  • Scuff up the bottom of your Khussa by twisting your feet on a sidewalk to give then some grip and avoid slipping.
  • Never wear Indian shoes in wet conditions.  Water will ruin the silk and the leather soles.
  • To clean, use a damp cloth.  A toothpick can be used to remove dirt from the beading or sequins.

Be a Khussa Indian Shoe Expert

Recognizing Quality Khussa Shoes
by Jody Rogers

Ethnic looks and BoHo styles are hot right now and embellished Khussa flats fit the bill perfectly.  Khussa shoes add a touch of worldly glamour to any look with ease, allowing you to be noticed.  However, all Khussa are not created equal.  Khussa Indian shoes are so pretty with their bright colors and intricate handcrafted beading that it can be easy to overlook quality in your shopping.  Low quality Indian shoes will not break-in correctly, deform quickly, take on a bad odor, and can irritate sensitive skin.

Learn to recognize quality Khussa shoes and get the real thing, not the look-a-likes (no one wants to be that girl).  Follow the tips below and no one will know that you didn't pick them up on your travels to the far East.

s Look for Khussa Indian shoes made from high quality leather.
They key when shopping for Indian shoes is to look for shoes made from high quality leather.  Many shoe manufacturers will use inferior leather for the uppers and some use poor quality leather for the entire shoe.  To avoid this, look for khussa with the same color leather for the uppers and the lowers.  The shoes should look stiff never floppy (quality khussa shoes start out stiff, but break-in to conform to the exact shape of your foot).  The leather should appear thick not thin.

Some Indian shoes, such as high heel khussa, certain khussa mules, and Indian bridal dabka shoes are made with man-made uppers and leather soles.  To judge quality on these khussa shoe styles, see the section below, "Look for shoes that look like they have good workmanship".


These are poor quality ethnic shoes. 
Notice the floppy worn look and the different shades of leather.  They have a used dirty appearance and the leather looks thin.  Also, notice the middle picture has a poor quality flesh-tone liner.


s Look for khussa made in Pakistan.
Khussa are most often referred to as Indian shoes, but they are made in India, Pakistan, and China.  Pakistan is widely recognized to provide the best quality handmade khussa shoes.  Quality leather is cleaned with process using salt and Pakistan has huge supplies of salt.  Salt is not used as liberally in India and results in lower quality leather.  Pakistan is also world renown for quality hand stitching (the worlds best soccer balls are hand stitched in Pakistan).  Stitching techniques are passed down for generations.  China produces many quality products, but Chinese khussa shoes are typically very low quality, cheaply made, and do not last long.

s Look for shoes that look like they have good workmanship.
If the shoe looks slapped together, it is slapped together.  Indian shoes (no matter where they are made) should look stiff and solid, not floppy or worn.  The stitching and the beadwork should be nice and tight, though occasion flaws will be in any handmade shoe.  Pen marks and/or stencil marks are normal and expected on handmade Indian shoes, and normally cannot be seen when the shoes are being worn.

Take a look at all available pictures when shopping on-line for Khussa Indian shoes.  Are there plenty of close-up pictures?  Do the shoes look like they are high quality.

These are high quality khussa Indian shoes.
 


These are high quality ethnic shoes.
 
Notice the general look of quality and clean workmanship.  They look solid and sturdy.

 
s Make sure that the retailer stands behind their product.
What if your khussa Indian shoes don't work out or you need help breaking them in?  Will the retailer be there for you after the sale to answer questions?  Do they have a return policy?  Does it allow for returns for the wrong size?  Is there a restocking fee?  Are they easy to contact (working phone number, email)?  How much is shipping?  If shipping is high, is it covered for returns?

To avoid problems when shopping on-line, choose a retailer that looks professional and trustworthy.  Read their return policy and call them if you have any doubts.

Important Points (especially for on-line shopping)
  • Typically leather khussa last much longer than non-leather khussa.
  • Often manufactures cover poor quality leather with flesh tone vinyl or inserts.
  • Khussa leather should be stiff at first.  Quality Indian shoes will break in over time.
  • Poor quality leather will develop a foul odor and can irritate your skin.
  • Beware of overly high shipping charges.
  • Check the return policy.
  • Look for Khussa that look stiff and new.  Avoid shoes that look floppy.
  • If a deal looks to good to be true, it probably is.   v




More About Ethnic Style with Indian Shoes

Khussa Indian shoes are also known as jutti, jootie, mojari, embellished flats, Indian slippers, genie shoes, and Aladdin shoes.  Khussa shoes have been around for thousands of years and were originally sewn with real gold thread and covered in real gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and sapphires. These amazing shoes were worn by ancient royalty throughout parts of the middle east and Asia.

Today, Khussa are perfect with any modern look including, boho chic, casual jeans, evening, wedding, ethnic, or other modern western styles.


s Khussa Indian Shoes for Brides and Weddings
Traditional flat Khussa are a favorite for brides looking for elegant flats or for comfortable shoes for their honeymoon.  They are especially popular for wearing on cruises.  High heel khussa are perfect for nearly any wedding, however they are the best shoes available for themed weddings such as Renaissance, Moroccan, Indian, Cinderella, or Ever After (the movie featuring Drew Barrymore).

Fantastic for bridesmaids!  The current fashion trend is for bridesmaids to wear khussa shoes for both the wedding ceremony and the reception.  They are even more popular as bridesmaids' gifts.  What is the first thing bridesmaids do after the pictures at wedding reception?  Take off those uncomfortable high heels, of course!  Give your bridesmaids fashionable comfortable khussa shoes to wear during the reception.

  

s Khussa Indian Flats for Expectant Mothers
Perfect for pregnant women. Flat comfortable shoes that are supremely stylish.  Moms-to-be love khussa shoes because they mold to the shape of your feet making swollen feet no problem.  They are also terrific for after the baby is born and a new mom has bigger things on her mind than putting up with high heels. Khussa shoes make a wonderfully unique baby shower gift.



s Authentic Khussa Shoes:  Taking Costumes from nice to WOW!
Indian shoes are great for all kinds of costumes.  Very popular as SCA garb and costumes for Renaissance fairs especially for Royalty costuming.

Khussa Indian shoes are also perfect for Victorian era and SASS costuming.  The khussa heels are perfect!

Practical and stylish for belly dancers both for professional belly dancing and belly dancing for fun.  Khussa are perfect for dancing on cement, rough surfaces, dirty surfaces, and/or for wearing before and after the dance.  Beachcombers! have styles to work for every color and every style of belly dance, Egyptian Cabaret, American Tribal Styles (ATS), Tribal Fusion...

Khussa shoes are the ultimate finishing touch to Halloween costumes such as genie, harem girl, Indian princess, Cinderella, Renaissance Princess, belly dancer, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Danielle (Drew Barrymore's character from Ever After), and more...
