My Chinese Traditional Shoes

When I am a kid, my grandma makes shoes for us, my brothers and me. The Chinese traditional black shoes for all-seasons, and the one for winter.
She passed away more than ten years. I missed her. Her house and mine are in the same block in Shanghai. I just said: Mom, I am going to Grandma’s home., then I went to her house in 2 minutes in a run.
I was playing the wood blocks and hammer and nail.
I always want to have an old style shoes. It is made by cloth and strings.
Here is the new one my brother gave to me last month.

There are dragon symbol on the face of shoe. It is very comfortable. The sole is made by white cloth. Called thousand pieces.
It has very good air permeability. The only weak point is not water proof. So now I use it indoor.
I hope my grandma will be happy in heaven.
