Obssesion of the day – my new winter boots ❤
For centuries, handmade felt shoes, the so-called Valenki, covered the feet or the russian empire. Felt boots once were so expensive that the average family could only afford one pair, so the boots had to be worn in shifts. It is said that Valenki boots helped Russians prevail in the Napoleonic wars as the leather boots of Napoleons’ army were inadequate for the Russian winter. Felt Boots are even said to have healing affect against flu and rheumatic disease. The ZDAR boots are a contemporary reinterpretation of these classic Russian boots, they are completely handmade using only the finest natural materials. Sustainability, function, and luxurious style all come together in this truly unique product.
