Nothing presidential, just a humble pair of blue sandals.

  7 Desember 2016 13:14 - After the jacket he wore during televised speech last month made waves on the internet, Indonesian President Joko Widodo earlier this week decided to show off yet another fashion item of his: a pair of sandals.

On his official Facebook account, Jokowi posted a pair of navy blue sandals by local brand Fladeo bought during a trip to Balikpapan, East Kalimantan to promote tax amnesty.
