Markakis is important to my family and culture. Markakis is important because we wore these shoes for centuries. Markakis is a type of shoe that is triangle shaped in the front and it is out in the back. The shoe you could wear with socks but it is better without it. Many people wear these shoes with African clothes. You can wear on special days or on the regular days. I’m from Senegal in West Africa. It is a wonderful place. It is full of spirit and culture.
