Russian kersey boots for soldiers in armyIn the beginning of World War II, USSR faced a problem of footwear for millions of soldiers, as there was catastrophic lack of leather boots.
A chemist Ivan V. Plotnikov was entrusted in the shortest possible time to improve the technology of artificial leather — kirza. Kirza is a pig leather imitation based on the multi-layer cotton fabric, modified by film-forming substances. The first time kirza was used during Soviet-Finnish War of , but the experiment was not successful. The material split and broke, did not keep warmth. Plotnikov made necessary improvements, and already in November, modernized kirza boots were brought into mass production.
For this invention in Plotnikov and his team was awarded a Stalin Prize second class of , roubles. Invention of kirza sapogi was considered as important as invention of Katyusha rocket launcher and constructions of the famed Soviet airplanes. Till the end of 20th century kirza boots were the standard footwear for Soviet and Russian servicemen.
Russian foot wrap for bootsKirza jack boots were worn together with a foot wrap. Foot wraps were more convenient than socks, because they could be made from locally available materials, dried faster, and frayed slower as the material could be wrapped around a foot differently. Although the main advantage was that because of a foot wrap, a soldier could wear bigger size boots.
Till nowadays kirza is produced according to Plotnikov recepies of the war time. Specialists say that over the entire history ,, pairs of kirza boots were produced. Kirza boots are suitable for all seasons — they save feet from moisture, snow, cold or strong heat. Besides their historical value, kirza boots are an excellent choice for any hunter, angler or mushroom picker. Enter a product name or description.
