From Russia With Love
Are you so over your Uggs? I'm sorry I can't help you with that myself because I still love mine but perhaps Valenki can. The 300-year-old line of Russian footwear — originally used by peasants — is making a comeback. The boots, a cross between galoshes and the fuzzy sheepskin marvel, have removable rubber on the bottom and an inch to a quarter-inch of wool throughout, which means they could keep your feet warm even in Antarctic temperatures, or just NYC temps right now. Brrr... They come in all sizes and will match anything plus, if you want them a bit shorter, just take a knife and whack them down to size. How convenient!
