“You can see it on the street, people are not respecting social distancing rules. I went to the market to buy seedlings for my garden. There weren’t many people there but they kept getting closer and closer,’ said Lup.

“If two people wearing these shoes were facing each other, there would be almost one-and-a-half metres between them,” added Lup.

So far, Lup has received five orders for the social distancing shoes. It takes two days for a pair of it to be made, which require almost one square meter of leather. The price for a pair of those long-nosed leather shoes was 500 lei (RM499.03).
