The people used to wear also boots with a rolled up toe, coming from the Arab culture. They were made in leather. The long toe denoted the high ranks of the person and it was frequent to wear oversize boots that it was almost difficult to walk wearing them.
The high boots and the ankle boots were made in a different kind of cow, goat or sheep leather in back or natural color. They were closed and without any strap or lace.
It was common to wear a footwear protecting the ankle and the way of fix it was different: with laces or belts.
