Valenki - is the best winter footwear for centuries in Russia. Made of felted lamb wool it is the guatantee of warmth and comfort in cold winter days. Best in the snow, rubbers added during wet weather. Still very popular in the country and around Moscow.
As you see, can be used as Christmas tree decoration too. I made this photo in October, waited for the occasion to make a post)))
Happy New Year!
