Boots are a type of footwear with high tops.
They became widespread in Rus' and the Middle East from nomads, for whom soft boots were comfortable riding shoes. In Rus', at first they were considered shoes for the rich (common people usually wore pistons or bast shoes), later solid yuft boots became widespread.
Morocco boots are mentioned in Russian epics. In Russian chronicles, telling about the 10th century, boots are opposed to bast shoes as a sign of belonging to the aristocracy.
In the Russian state, under Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, the archers wear high boots on their feet, and the regiments differed from each other in the color of collars, hats and sometimes boots.
The popularity of boots among the nobility declined somewhat after Peter I restricted the wearing of traditional Russian clothing.
Boots were sewn from yuft, with a sewn-on shaft or one-piece - exhaust. Most often with a straight cut of the bootleg. The folds on the tops were considered a special chic (then it was called boots "with a wrinkle"). The folds had a regular round shape. To do this, a round rope was sewn into the skin with a ring. 5-6 such rings were placed on the shaft. There should have been at least five wrinkles. Boots were also made “with a creak” - between the sole and the insole they made a lining of dry birch bark or poured sugar into it.
