How to choose boots

Most of the heat loss occurs at the seams. These boots are not sewn, have a solid shape, so they are better than boots and boots. Material plays a role in the issue. The classic model is rolled from 100% wool, due to which it is not cold even at extremely low temperatures.

What are the criteria for choosing boots

Much depends on who, when and where boots will be worn. If you live in a region with changeable weather - early in the morning -15, and in the afternoon -3 - then buy a pair of preschoolers with rubberized or puffed bottom. This model will protect your feet from frost during the road to the kindergarten and will not let them get wet on the way to the house, and in case of a jump it will save the ankle better than the canonical version.

Important! A worthy alternative to felt boots with a rubber or puffed bottom is transparent galoshes worn on top. They look neater than black ones.

Residents of regions with harsh winters are more suited to traditional models. They are easier to walk in deep snow. Well, fashionistas who do not want to spoil the bow with the usual cut should take a closer look at the narrowed options. Their nose is not so massive, and the top in width and shape is more like a detail of boots.

How to choose size

Useful notes and recommendations:

  • you need to measure on a warm toe (first of all, the rule works in relation to shoes with rubber soles, narrowed shafts and a neat little nose);
  • the size of the traditional model is determined by subtracting from the usual size 13 (if you wear boots of the 38th, then take the boots of the 25th);
  • Children's size is determined by the insole taken out of the shoes (the insole should be 3-4 cm shorter).

Important! This shoe sits when worn. Therefore, it makes sense to take a pair of 1 size larger.

We select material

The base should be made of 100% sheep wool (with a factory roll, the indicator is usually much lower, impurities are widely used). Acceptable and decorative blotches of other materials, as well as a rubber sole.

Important! If the material is painted, it can cause allergies. From unpainted are only white and gray pairs.

Best filler

Felt boots should be distinguished from boots. These are still different shoes. And if the model has a filler or lining, then it also should not be classified as boots. A real canonical pair does not need any insulation. It already perfectly retains heat.

If you are planning to buy felt boots, then take it with insulation from real fur. And do not forget to make sure that they are trimmed with the entire inner side. Some manufacturers are tricky: in the visible areas of the boots they use natural materials, and deep inside - artificial ones.

Decorative decoration boots

Not all designers consider it necessary to trim boots, but if such an idea occurs to them, they often turn to ethnic motifs. Reason: this shoe has pronounced roots, it correlates with the Russian people. Hence, embroidery with threads and stones, fur edges and applications, vegetable (berries, flowers) and animal ornaments (primarily birds, often fabulous).

Ethno-style is now among the trends, therefore, boots decorated in this direction can and should be worn. You should also pay attention to quilted models and pairs made of several materials at once.
