The shoe takes its name from the city of Peshawar, where it originates from. While chappal is the word for flip-flops, or sandals in Urdu. People in Peshawar — the locals — call the Peshawari / Charsadda Chappal Tsaple. Peshawari Chappal is worn by men casually or formally, usually with the Shalwar Kameez dress. Because of its comfort, it is used in place of sandal or slipper in Pakistan.
