Valenki - bohemian felted boots

Valenki are traditional Russian winter footwear 
Hand painted felted boots
They are made by felting wool felt and are essentially felt boots. Traditionally they come without a sol and worn with 'galoshi' (rubber or plastic cover) to protect the soles from water and wear. I remember wearing Valenki in the kindergarten back in Moscow, so did everyone else 😍 Valenki used to be a traditional foot wear in Russia, but then they became seen as unpractical mostly in the cities.

Today, when we witness revival of ethnic and eco friendly clothing, valenki become a popular choice for bohemian boots for organic clothes lovers.
Valenki are warm felted highboots made from dried sheep’s wool, they are quite soft and get the form of the human's sol. They are traditionally worn for walking on dry snow when the weather is frosty, so they best place for them would be a ski resort ⛷🎿
The best ones are either hand painted:

Taking Boho chic to the next level

What we know about boho chic? That it is a fashion trend said to have been started by actress Sienna Miller in 2005 after the movie Alfie, where she wore bohemian-style clothing. That it is partly bohemian (alternative, laid-back and chilled) and partly chic, meaning classy, glamorous, not over the top or flashy.

It mixes vintage fashion with modern environment. It combines handmade, organic, colourful, folk items with simple, modern items.
Folk motives, maxi skirts, headpieces bring Boho chic on
The point of Boho style is to look looking authentic and natural, alternative yet not trying too hard. Long skirts, baggy tops and accessorizing. Folk motives, Indian, Moroccan, Gypsy, any of them will work.
But how about making it more fun and chic? Combining boho, hippie and rave styles together. Being edgy and cool? Where Burning Man meets Coachella, where your freedom is just limited by following “formalities” of the dress code?
They say to wear a long skirt, here you are:

They say you must wear a hat, here it is:

You formally follow the dress code and comply with all imposed norms, however your outfit screams: “Hello, I’m a rebel!”

Both boho and hippie chic are synonymous to accessories.  Headpieces, bracelets, anklets, necklaces, body harnesses, belts. The list is limited only by your imagination.
