    Russian (Soviet) VALENKI (WALENKI) felt boots work winter footwear

    I like these very much for very cold winter warm feet.

    those boots were used by the Soviet soldiers in WW2, the German soldiers did not have them and the result is already known.
    a curious fact, which I can cornfirm is true: the German-Italian-Romanian-Hungarian soldiers who invaded Russia wore the boots with the same number of feet, the Soviet soldiers wore 1 or 2 numbers greater than the feet, so in winter they could stuff their boots with straw or newspaper that helped keep the fingers from freezing
