Tsarouchia (in Greek Τσαρούχια) are shoes which are typically known nowadays because they are worn by the Evzones, the Greek presidential guards. The origin of those shoes goes back to Byzantine times. Until the 19th century, everybody was wearing in rural or urban areas. With the passage of time those shoes became part of folklore and you can see them, worn with traditional costumes during danse festivals or other special occasions.
