The Valenki felt is 5-6 mm thick.

Russian valenki are to be worn inside and outside. If you wear valenki inside, they are just like perfect light wool socks with a special healing effect through wool warmth and micro massage.

Looked at these boots.... love them especially the charm style. Will eventually get. I agree reserached wool years ago for healing properties.  Thank you for putting link.  Oh wow just saw your cedar bowls oh my.... cedar is my favorite. The cedar resin can that be shipped to US and what uses for? Forgot to look shipping price to US is it alot as the boots such a fair price.

Very impressed so far. Ordered a pair of Valenki / polyurethane soles for myself and Valenki Elegy-2 for my wife. Price is great! Shipping is outrageous, however when you consider US sellers of similar boots are two or three times as high and their shipping while a bit less is not free. Over all a bargain and far more choices. Considered the sole-less booties but heat with wood and have a dog... Much more practical to get boots with soles.

Quality seems excellent, too early to judge durability. Hard to judge comfort yet. As recommended, ordered one size large to allow for shrinkage and / or thick socks. Not tried them with thick socks yet, so not going to make a 20 mile hike in them. Heck, at my age not going to make a 20 mile hike in expensive well fitting hiking boots.

One oddity, the heels are hollowed out on the inside so they feel a bit weird. Guess they are like those 'Earth shoes' that were advertised heavily back in the 70s or 80s. Might be a good thing but I'm not used to it.

Looking forward to being asked "where did you get them?"

Look at Valenki (Russian felt boots) as possible solution for energy crisis: https://ecominded.net/russian-valenki-against-gas-crisis Wear Valenki inside and outside to protect your feet from freezing this winter. Russian felt shoes have a healing effect - for flu, rheumatic disease, feet massage. Kind and curing warmth!
