it almost snowed last night in the city, so the snow line on the mountains is really low now. it got me thinking of walking through the snow in these russian felted boots. valenkids make traditional russian boots made seamless from felted sheep's wool. You can buy them with rubber shoes that the felt boots slip into, or with an attached rubber sole. I know some might think these are ugly (like my boyfriend) but i think they are neat, and make me wish i was in snowy scandinavia.
