Euro fur - what is it in boots?

In recent years, one can often hear that in stores or on online sites are offered for purchase boots with eurofur. At the same time, the seller on the market without shyness demonstrates a shoe pair for winter with ordinary faux fur. Is this really so: eurofur is a synthetic fiber with imitation of fur pile or some other animal ? Let's figure out what material it is and why it was invented.

Euromech - what is it?

In fact, this is not the skin of any animal, it is a way of warming shoes. With it, the foot in the boot to the ankle is as if in a fur sock, and further up to the very top a fabric lining is substituted.

Euromech is not a material, but a way of warming, in which the lower part of the leg - the foot, ankle, is warmed with fur, and on the ankle the nature of the insulation changes to a fabric lining - flannel or fleece .

Is he warm?

Ahead of the onset of cold, and therefore a logical question arises as to whether it is warm in such boots and at what temperature the foot will feel comfortable. As the insulation of the lower part are natural materials: sheepskin or tsigeyka. Above is warm soft fleece. To keep warm in winter, it’s enough that the foot will bask .

The upper part of the boot will maintain the temperature at which the shoes are fastened indoors. With active movement, for example, walking, in such shoes the warmth will be even in frosty winters up to 20 degrees. But if on the street the thermometer’s column drops much lower, then you need shoes that provide heat to the knee: boots with natural fur, felt boots, high boots.

What weather is it designed for?

The foot below is insulated with natural fur, which means that these shoes are not demi-season. Boots with eurofur are sold as a lightweight winter version and are designed for use in different weather conditions .

Euro fur can be worn both in winter and during the off-season, which is characterized by temperature changes. These shoes are great for mild winters.

Given that in recent years in November and December temperatures are kept high enough for these months, the euro fur will be appropriate for half of the winter time.

If it has not yet come warm, but not already very cold - in early spring or late autumn there is no reason to soar in heavy boots with natural fur, an easy version with lightweight insulation will be most welcome .

Shoes with such insulation will help out if there was frost at night and the morning remains cold, and by the afternoon the thaw sets in.

In the European part of Russia, many women choose this fur, because in small frosts, up to 15 degrees, they warm their legs very well, and if you move in a car, then the cold is stronger and stronger.

Pros and cons of eurofur in boots

Based on the foregoing, we conclude that euromech is suitable for many situations and has undoubted positive aspects:

  • there is no bulky fur in the upper part of the boot, here it is replaced with a thinner fleece or flannel. Accordingly, the volume does not increase, and the legs remain slim ;
  • the shoes have light weight, since fleece is much lighter than natural fur;
  • thin lining provides simplified fastening;
  • the presence of fur only in the lower half of the boot significantly reduces the cost compared with shoes made entirely of natural materials.

Despite all the positive aspects, there are some negative aspects:

  • such a fur does not provide sufficient protection against severe frosts;
  • often in shoes called "eurofur" unscrupulous manufacturers replace natural materials with synthetic analogs that are outwardly difficult to distinguish from laid fur and leather .
  • Having considered all the pros and cons of shoes with Euro fur, we can conclude that these options are in demand in a women's wardrobe.

Commonly Used Materials

To warm the lower part of the boot, from the sole to the ankle, a natural sheepskin or tsigeyka is used. The rest, located above, has a lining layer of warm fleece, bikes or flannel.

The insulation may have a small pile layer, which works to improve the heat-insulating properties of tissue areas. And only in some models on the upper part of the boot is a lining made of natural materials: thin sheared fur or wool.

What complements the euro fur in boots?

Sometimes instead of euro fur you can hear the term euro wool. This is also one of the ways of warming the boot, only natural fur in shoes is replaced with high-quality sheep wool processed using a special technology.

The name Euro defines that this product is created and in demand in the territory of the European Union . On the territory of our country, boots with such a heater have not yet become widespread. But in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and other countries they have long appreciated this invention and successfully wear similar models.

To create Euro-wool, raw materials from special breeds of sheep are taken. Their coat is denser than usual. It practically does not fall down, and the applied processing technology provides thermal stabilization throughout the entire period of operation .

As a result, the resulting material is resistant to abrasion and creasing, and also easily ensures the stability of thermal insulation of shoes during any period of use. Legs in such shoes do not sweat. This is guaranteed by good ventilation and less moisture than natural fur.
