The ‘Mulan’ Inspired Shoes Channeling Women’s Inner Warrior
Photos Courtesy of Ruthie Davis
New York-based designer Ruthie Davis teamed up with University of Delaware students to create a shoe collection that moves beyond fashion.
Ruthie Davis wants all women to find their inner warrior.
That’s why the esteemed shoe designer, known for her edgy footwear, created a shoe collection in conjunction with the release of the live action Mulan film on Disney+. The movie was released through the streaming service after delays in a theatrical release due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Disney X Ruthie Davis Mulan Warrior Collection encapsulates Mulan’s spirit, confidence, and female empowerment with a blend of sporty and feminine designs and the mantra “warrior” adorning each shoe.
“These shoes are just so reflective of what me and my brand stand for,” says Davis. Her brand is meant to make women feel strong, with heels tall enough to look a man right in the eye.
When Davis founded her brand in 2006, her goal was never to create pretty shoes. It was to create shoes where the worlds of athleticism and high fashion collide.
The collaboration includes five designs ranging in price from $398 to $898. The shoes are available exclusively on Davis’ website.
The Warrior 1 is a cutout platform boot with a zip heel. It comes in black and red and will make anyone tall enough to stand their ground with a 5.5-inch PVC heel. The Warrior 2 is a black and white, 5-inch wedge, platform leather sneaker with “warrior” stamped on the front. Coming in at almost 6 inches, the Warrior 3 is a sleek and sexy leather and neoprene lace-up boot with “warrior” branded boldly on the outsole. Warrior 4 is a chic and sporty platform high top, and Warrior 5 is a strappy sandal with a 4.25-inch stiletto heel.
Davis wasn’t entirely on her own for this endeavor. She mentored a group of University of Delaware students, where Davis is a part of the fashion advisory council and formed a tight-knit girl gang who coined themselves the “warrior women” while working on the collection.
“I’ve worked with students from different fashion schools and these students just had a great positive attitude and a willingness to learn,” Davis says. “It was incredible, I think I might’ve gotten more out of the experience than they did.”
Davis worked with the women over the span of a year, bringing them into her world in her studio in New York and taking them under her wing. She even brought them to the premiere of Mulan in Los Angeles in March just before the stay-at-home orders began. where they got to show their best warrior walk wearing the shoes, they helped design.
Wing Tang, who graduated in 2019 with a degree in fashion and apparel studies, describes walking the carpet as a “pinch me I’m dreaming” moment.
“That was such a surreal experience, and even today I look back at the shoes and I’m just speechless,” Tang says.
Davis got the girls to go outside of their comfort zones and got them to truly collaborate with one another instead of focusing on their college major.
“The designers were only trying to design, and the fashion merchandisers were only focusing on marketing and I went, ‘no, throw that out the window, everyone here is equal,’” Davis says.
For Nicole Pierpont, who graduated in 2019 with a fashion merchandising degree, says the experience and the freedom to be creative was refreshing.
“A lot of my classes were so [Microsoft Excel] focused, and I really needed that kick in the butt to show me that I can be creative while still caring about the business side of things,” Pierpont says.
As part of the collaboration, all the girls got to add components of their own style and personality into the shoe, something that senior apparel design major Jamie Weiner was happy to see.
“Some of the other women dressed up a little bit more than I did, I usually wear sneakers or flats because heels aren’t my thing,” Wen-Weiner says. “So, it was really cool that we were able to add our own styles and we even got to create a sort of jogger heel which was great.”
Davis says that the most gratifying part of the project was teaching the girls how to work as a team. When the project had first started, none of the girls in the group were the closest of friends. But now, they all share a forever bond.
The students agree.
“It was definitely a bonding experience, and now these girls are people that I can call my friends and always reach out to,” Pierpont says.

Interview: Warrior Shoes Renovator Ye Shumeng
The Comeback Of A Chinese Classic
Who would have expected Ye Shumeng (叶书萌), a design student from Helsinki, to become one of the greatest proponents of bringing back “Made in China” classics? What started out for Ye as a personal interest has ignited a movement in the world of Chinese-made sneakers, bringing vintage style into the international spotlight (and attracting new investment). Ye’s interest in Warrior (Huili 回力) shoes led to her documentation of the lingering presence of Warrior shoes in China over the last half century, often led by economical convenience or simply romantic nostalgia. The result was a godsend to the waning brand; not only did it catch the attention of foreign investors, intent on reviving the brand, but Warrior shoes quickly found their way into many international and domestic hipsters’ closets.
This time, Ye has proven to outdone herself once again. Her recent efforts at the Nouveau Riche pop-up store in Sanlitun have once again redefined the conceptual status quo of Chinese consumption.
In our interview with Ye, Jing Daily discussed the gradually changing views on Chinese brands in the West and got some of Ye’s perspective on the future of the Made-in-China fashion.
Jing Daily (JD): The Nouveau Riche pop-up store was very successful while it was up. How did you come up with concept?
Ye Shumeng (YSM): I got the idea for the Nouveau Riche pop-up store in summer 2010 when spending time in Shanghai. While the Chinese fashion retail market felt very exciting, and lots of things are happening all the time, the market also felt quite dominated by the same high-end brands and the same mall concepts in every city. Due to the maturity level of the market, China is still lacking a lot great brands with a moderate price tag and an inclusive approach. Personally, I don’t believe you should have to choose between accessibility and good design as they can go hand in hand and I felt the urge to do something. At the same time, I got to know people from the local brand The Thing and they offered me the opportunity to do something in their Sanlitun store in Beijing, so the decision for starting the pop-up was born very quickly.
The goal for Nouveau Riche was to offer affordable items with unique designs. With the help from some of my friends in Finland and the US, I created a mini collection especially made for the pop-up and also brought in two really great brands that I really admire – SSWTR and Native Shoes. The mini collection was produced in collaboration with The Thing and a lot of the pieces were inspired by Chinese everyday things like the chicken feet and tiger pillows, of which are often overlooked in a design context.
I also wanted to try something disruptive in a high-end mall setting to challenge the status quo a bit. But don’t get me wrong, I find nothing more dull than just to criticize. From my perspective, I’m more interested in being part of the system and to experiment from within it. Many people also asked me about the meaning of the name “Nouveau Riche.” It gives off an impression of an ironic commentary of the Chinese fashion market but the deeper meaning lies within the fact that it stands for being a newcomer and doing things in a fresh way. In a wider perspective, China as a whole, can be seen as a newcomer; it has always fascinated me how Nouveau Riche can conjure up a mix of envious and contemptuous imagery.
JD: Amongst the various designers who were included in the store, Mary Ping was perhaps the only designer of Chinese descent. hast drew you to Mary Ping’s collection?
YSM: I have been a fan of Mary Ping’s Slow and Steady Wins the Race for a while. Not only are her designs outstanding, but also the SSWTR concept is really unique, sharing similar values as Nouveau Riche.
JD: What types of customers did you have? How did the customers react to the store concept, designers and the temporary pop-up idea?
YSM: Situated in Sanlitun, Nouveau Riche mainly received young Chinese hipsters but also attracted a varied crowd. After all, mall shopping is very popular in China!
Earlier this year, the pop-up store concept was still relatively novel in Beijing but that will probably change soon. In terms of the feedback, the new brands were surprisingly well received considering the short time we had. I definitely believe that indie brands have a bright future in China.
JD: Since the pop-up store was only temporary, do you foresee similar shopping experiences being installed in other big and small cities? Perhaps outside of China?
YSM: I’m very interested in experimenting with branding and within the retail field so that’s why I usually like to try out new things. But who knows, maybe one day.
JD: Prior to your pop-up store, you have worked on many projects, namely The Book of Warriors project. Can you tell us a little more about that?
YSM: A few years ago, I stumbled upon Warrior shoes by accident and found out about the history of the brand. Warrior used to be highly popular in the 70s and 80s.
They were the most coveted fashion item back in the day when my parents were young and during the time when people really took great care of their material possessions. For anyone who lived in China back then, like me during my childhood in China in the 80s, treasuring material belongings is a very familiar memory and it immediately resonates with me. But since then Warrior has fallen out of fashion and only the poor and elderly are still wearing them. Young people in China today have moved on to Nike and Converse.
Inspired by Warrior’s rich heritage and the classic style of the common man, I decided this was a story to be cherished and worth telling. I traveled around China and took photos of people with Warrior shoes. I self-published these pictures as a limited-edition book and packaged each with a pair of original Warrior sneakers. This new pairing was sold at premium retailers around Europe such as Colette and received wide coverage by Western press. As a result, the project was also widely reported in China and Warrior became a hit again among Chinese trendsetters after people started to see them in a new light.
Through the project, I also wanted to play with the notion of “Made in China” and globalization, and how the perception of a product can be revived with branding.

JD: In light of the interest of various Western companies in acquiring vintage Chinese brands like Warrior (回力) and Feiyue (飞跃) and subsequently revitalizing their images, how do you foresee the fate of Chinese brands? Will they attain success abroad only through foreign investment?
YSM: I think at least for now, foreign involvement is necessary if the brand is using Chinese heritage as a big selling point. My guess is that native Chinese are not so comfortable yet with marketing a product using China culture. On the other hand, the markets abroad are more evolved in the sense that the vintage trend has been around for so many years, so a foreign perspective can help to predict consumer trends. In fact, I was involved until recently as a creative and partner in Warrior Footwear, the company responsible for distributing and marketing Warrior shoes in North America. On the other hand, I see also many manufacturers moving from producing private labels for Western department stores to creating their own brands and labels like JNBY opening their own stores in the US so there are many ways.
JD: What do you think of the future of the new wave of “Made in China” brands and products? You have mentioned in a previous interview that it’s best for the brands to provide English sources online. Aside from that, what other suggestions do you have for them?
YSM: Self-confidence is a huge factor in my opinion and better market analysis to understand consumers outside China.
JD: After your time in China, how do you perceive Chinese consumption behavior and psychology?
YSM: Since I never actually lived in China as an adult, there are still so many things I want to learn. China is a very exciting place for retail because there are so many consumer behaviors developing in parallel at a very fast pace. You have a huge amount of people just about to get their first taste of consumerism and you also have the person willing to splurge on hand-crafted artisan goods. And everything in between. I think for us coming from the West, the most important thing is not to generalize too much and to take it case by case.
JD: What projects are you currently working on?
YSM: Last month I enrolled in the e-Commerce Business program at Hyper Island, a digital media school in Stockholm, Sweden. For my next project, I would like to do something digital, and I’m working on a small brand of leather goods that tries to bridge the gap between physical and online. But I hope to be back in China soon next year!

An Air Jordan 35 colorway that’s designed by the brand-sponsored athlete and Washington Wizards’ forward Rui Hachimura is set to arrive this month.
“Growing up half-Japanese and half-Beninese in Japan, Rui battled adversity and discrimination as a kid, but it’s the perseverance, purpose, and pride embodied by his Asian and West African heritage that has shaped who he is today: a warrior,” the brand wrote in its product description for the Air Jordan 35 “Warrior.”

The medial side of the Air Jordan 35 “Warrior.”
This iteration of Micheal Jordan’s latest signature sneaker sports a red and black color scheme predominantly on the mid-cut upper featuring the new Flightwire system on the sides along with a Kurim cage underneath for lockdown. To channel Hachimura’s warrior spirit, the Kanji-inspired samurai logo that’s designed by his mother is stamped on the tongue. Capping off the look is the Eclipse Plate 2.0 combined with Zoom Air bags in the midsole and a cement-inspired outsole.
“Integrating premium materials and textures was a priority for the Air Jordan XXXV,” Jordan Brand footwear designer Tate Kuerbis said in a statement in September. “The brand has a history of giving these materials an aspirational quality. When players see it, when they touch it, they feel like they have the power of the Jumpman behind them. Everything we do has to tie back to making the best basketball shoe on the planet.”
The Air Jordan 35 “Warrior” releases via the SNKRS app and at select Jordan Brand retailers on Oct. 21 for a retail price of $180.

- Moccasins (moccasins, mocs) – shoes without a heel with a semicircular seam at the vamp and toe. Such models are always made with thin soles. As a rule, they are worn in summer or in warm weather. The word “moccasins” came into English in the 17th century from the Algonquin Indians; with them this word meant “shoes”. Native American prototypes were not at all like modern versions: the upper and outsole seemed to be a one-piece construction. Italian designers designed a sleeker shoe and Tod’s popularized a new shoe by adding rubber spikes to the soles.Moccasins Tod’s

Isaiah 9 chapter 5 verse – Isa 9: 5
Interpretation of a group of verses: Is: 9: 5-5
Art.5-7. Like all clothes I will gather with flattery and a robe with reconciliation 1 they will give it back and delight, so that they were burned by fire. Like the Child was born to us, Son, and given to us, His beginning was on His frame: and His name is called: Great council Angel 2 . I will bring peace to the riches, peace and health to him. And his great beginnings, and his peace have no limit on the throne of David and on his kingdom, correct him and intercede him in judgment and righteousness, from now on to everlasting: the zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this .The remains of Israel were called to know Immanuel through the holy Apostles; the Gentiles are also called. Therefore (the prophet) and said: the country of Zebulun and the land of Naphtaliml , and then added to this: Galilea of tongues, people sitting in the darkness saw the great light, of course the light sent down through Christ, who enlightens spiritually, moreover, not one people of Israel, or rather, the whole of the Middle Kingdom. That the enlightened (with this light) had to cast off the yoke of the devil’s malice, and get rid of the rod, he convinced of this, adding the words: But we see that the yoke of the wickedness of the devil has been laid on those who serve the creation and worship the works of their hands, and the Israelites are burdened with a heavy burden of the law and a burden truly unbearable. Therefore, the blessed disciples, those who, after accepting the faith, urged some to observe what was written in the law, reproached, saying: and now, that you are tempting God, although you still lay the yoke on your neck as a disciple, whom neither our fathers nor we can bear (10 Why are you now tempting God, wanting to put on the necks of the disciples a yoke that neither our fathers nor we could bear?15:10). So the yoke of the law was too unbearable for the Israelites, and besides what was even more unbearable, it was because the cunning of the Pharisees not a little overwhelmed them with its gluttony. For the leaders of the synagogue of the Jews were greedy for money and had one goal, to collect from everywhere and do all kinds of extortion to the people subordinate to them. Therefore, about the Israelites, it would be quite right to say that will be weaned off by a yoke, lie on them, and a rod, like on their necks. The wand is plausibly called the greed of the leaders for predominance, due to their strong tendency to greed.For this very reason, they, unhappy, killed the Son himself. For although they saw that He is the heir, but resolves in yourself , it is said: come, for Him, and we will keep His inheritance (38 But the husbandmen, seeing the son, said to each other: this is the heir; let’s go and kill him and we will take possession of his inheritance (Matthew 21:38). So, that having this wicked and sinful purpose, they would rather suffer damage to all their property than to see Immanuel shining in the world, this is indicated, saying: that I will gather all clothing with flattery, and they will give away the robe with reconciliation, and delight it, so that it is with fire. were burned. Yako Otrocha was born to us, the Son and was given to us. For by deceit and flattery and unjust judgment they collected money for themselves, as it is said (14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you eat up the houses of widows and pray hypocritically for a long time: for this you will receive all the more condemnation. Matt. 23:14, 23 and others): but it was pleasant and kind for them to take off and give everything down to their undergarments and himation with reconciliation, that is, with a profit, even more, as it is said, they would agree to be burned by fire, being unable to endure that, that was born to us, a Son and given to us. Endowed with confidence in the management of the sovereign vineyard, they wanted to have fruits only themselves, bringing nothing to the Vladyka at all.

in Russia introduced digital marking of footwear
From July 1, Russia introduces compulsory shoe labeling. This will rid the market of counterfeit products. How to distinguish original shoes and boots from fake under the brand, the correspondent of the TV channel “MIR 24” Alexey Dashenko figured out.
Clothing market.The products of the world’s most expensive brands are affordable for a person of any income. However, the sellers do not hide: they have only the original name of the company, and even then it is often written crookedly and with errors. But such products can be found more and more often in expensive boutiques.
“Now the share of counterfeit goods is estimated at 30-35%, recently it is closer to 40%. It is very difficult for the legal footwear business to work, ”complained Natalya Demidova, Director General of the National Footwear Union.
And this is one of the Moscow chain shoe stores. For several months now, they have been selling digitally labeled goods, but most buyers do not know anything about it.
“This means that there will be a certified product that is not fake, that is not counterfeit,” the saleswoman explained to the buyer.
This fact, as experience shows, becomes decisive when in doubt, whether to buy or not. The so-called Data Matrix code is applied to the packaging.It is unique for each pair of shoes, looks like a QR code and can be read by any scanner or smartphone.
“The corresponding program allows, after reading the code, to identify this pair of shoes and show the buyer all the origins: how this pair was imported into Russia, who is the brand holder, and so on,” said Sergey Manushev, product director of the Russian footwear chain.
It was decided to organize a total accounting of footwear in Russia after the first results of the labeling of fur products appeared.The corresponding government decree was issued three years ago.
“For several years, the legal turnover of fur products has grown by almost 10 times. This is an indicator that we were really on the right track. We were able to help conscientious manufacturers and sellers to work more efficiently in this very competitive market, ”said Viktor Evtukhov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia.
Officials expect the same result in the shoe industry.Labeled packaging guarantees: you are not buying counterfeit products. By the way, you don’t have to take the seller’s word for it. You can download a free program to your smartphone and check yourself what kind of product is in the shoe box.
“Here we click on the“ Honest Sign ”application, point at this code and see all the information: men’s shoes, low shoes, who made them,” said Revaz Yusupov, Deputy General Director of the Center for the Development of Advanced Technologies.
And also the color, the material from which the shoes are made.You can also see a photo of the product, and in case of non-compliance, send an online complaint. Footwear labeling will become mandatory from July 1st. To date, more than 70 million pairs have been marked. However, manufacturers were still given a reprieve and allowed to sell unmarked shoes until March 2020.

A soldier’s footwear is much more important than any civilian. In addition to long and grueling marches, the military are sometimes forced to keep their shoes on for several days. To understand what it is, try to go to bed without taking off your shoes at least once. Most likely, in the morning it will simply be difficult for you to stand on your feet due to the fact that the blood flow in your legs has been disrupted all night. Now imagine that you have to sleep in shoes not in a warm and cozy apartment, but on damp and cold ground.
In addition, due to their high indicators of wear resistance and comfort, as well as because of their unique brutal style, almost all models of military shoes ever invented have found use in civilian life and often even became a distinctive feature of the wardrobe of a number of subcultures, and sometimes and entire generations. This article will tell you about the most interesting and important moments in the history of the development of military shoes.
The very first soldier’s footwear can rightfully be considered the Roman caligae (boot).Wearing these shoes with thick leather soles, which at the same time resemble boots and sandals, Roman legionnaires marched through a good part of the world. Thanks to the open design, the kaligas provided free access to air and, unlike modern army boots, the feet of soldiers of the most professional army of antiquity did not sweat in these shoes. In addition, the legionnaire, with his active lifestyle, in the Kaligas, the legs were less susceptible to the likelihood of blisters and abscesses, as well as other troubles, such as trench feet (necrosis of the skin and toes).

The design of Roman soldiers’ shoes was simpler than a Kalashnikov assault rifle. Two pieces of leather of different thickness, fastened together, formed the sole, the largest, the third, a piece attached on top and formed the outer part of the shoe. These shoes had excellent fixation. It was laced in the middle of the foot and the upper part of the ankle (there were examples with lacing to the knee).Often their soles were nailed down for better traction. Kaligi were usually worn on a bare foot, but in regions with a cold climate, such as in Britain, the Romans wore woolen socks under the kaligi.
The Roman boot breached the class barrier that separated the rank and file legionnaires from the commanding staff. Kaligas were worn by people of all classes and ranks, including centurions. Of course, the officers, who were mostly the offspring of wealthy families, decorated their shoes with silver and gold, but, whatever one may say, they are kaligi in kaligi gold.Subsequently, these shoes fell in love with Western Christians. They put her shoes on when they went on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. And the “gladiator” sandals, fashionable in one of the last seasons among women, are in fact nothing more than a rethinking of the ancient Roman caligas.

Interesting fact: If at the mention of these ancient Roman shoes your mind somehow weaves the image of the Roman emperor known for his dissolute manners, even by the standards of not the most enslaved ancient society – do not be alarmed, this is normal.The fact is that Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, better known as Caligula (which means “boot”), received this nickname due to the fact that in childhood he very often went on military campaigns with his father and therefore they sewed special small soldiers’ sandals.
Woolen sock worn by legionnaires under caligi in Britain
The evolution of military affairs gave rise to such an arm as the cavalry.With the invention of stirrups (V-VI centuries), the cavalry began to dominate the battlefield. But, if in the days of the Roman Empire, when the infantry was the dominant branch of the army, all the soldiers, including the horsemen, wore sandals, then after isolation it turned out that Kaligi and other shoes similar to them were not very suitable for battles on horseback and rubs their feet . .. This is how the boots appeared. For a long time, the most popular type of cavalry boots were over the knee boots. Rigid along the entire shaft, and also practically not bending below the knee, these boots allowed riders to be in the saddle for a long time.
By the end of the 18th century, in almost all armies of the world, both infantry and cavalry were sporting boots. However, if in our homeland the ball was ruled by all sorts of variations on boots and ankle boots made of soft leather, which replaced infantry shoes with buckles, then in Europe “Hessian” boots found incredible popularity. These boots with low heels and a rounded toe covered the leg almost to the knee, which made them comfortable for riding and, unlike hard boots, they were suitable for everyday wear.
An interesting fact: If boots, like the caligi, having reached our days, have become mainly women’s shoes, then the Hessian boot has become a symbol of a whole generation of desperate men who went in the middle XIX century to the west of the United States in search of gold, adventure and better life. Now these boots are better known to us as cowboy boots.
Footcloth without boots
For the first time, the soldiers of the British East India Company began to wrap the leg with a long and narrow strip of fabric for better fixation and protection in the second half of the 18th century.They called it winding and, according to historical data, the British adopted this element of clothing from the inhabitants of the Himalayas, deciding that it would be a high-quality and inexpensive substitute for boots. After some time, the winding conquered the hearts and legs of most of the armies in the world. It remained an important element of the soldier’s uniform until the middle of World War II, and in some armies (for example, in the Japanese), the winding remained so until 1945.
It is worth noting that readiness and cheapness were the only advantages of the winding, and otherwise it was one big problem. Due to the fact that hygiene on the battlefield, unfortunately, is not the most important point for a soldier, dirty winding led to all kinds of skin diseases, and due to the rigid fixation of the leg, many fighters suffered from varicose veins. In addition, the winding was not so easy to wind up, so one could only dream of quickly dressing the soldiers in uniforms. Paradoxical as it may seem, but even before the British, long, almost 30 centimeters wide, strips of fabric were wound around their feet by Russian peasants. We called this item of clothing onucha, and sometimes it was worn as an independent type of footwear.However, Russian soldiers never used onuchu for this purpose, since Russian troops have used boots since the 18th century, and, unlike most European armies, they went through two world wars and beyond.
Interesting fact: According to historians, it was onucha that served as the prototype for the famous soldier’s substitute for socks – footcloths. There is still debate about the advantages and disadvantages of this iconic soldier’s clothing item.However, be that as it may, today the reality is that footcloths, like boots, have been almost completely ousted from the army by socks and boots. Young soldiers will never know why it is so important to wrap the footcloth correctly and why jumping into it with a “parachute” before a march is not the best idea.
In our country, everyone knows what a tarpaulin boot is – even those who have never worn it know what it looks like roughly.However, not everyone knows who invented it. There are many rumors about this. The first to create something similar to the modern tarpaulin was the Russian inventor Mikhail Pomortsev, who in 1904 impregnated canvas fabric with a mixture of rosin, egg yolk and paraffin. The material turned out to be almost as high quality as genuine leather – it breathed, but at the same time had water-repellent properties. For the first time in hostilities, the kirza was tested by the soldiers of the Russo-Japanese War – bags, artillery covers and ammunition for horses were made from Pomortsev’s material.The material of the Russian inventor received the highest marks at many international exhibitions, but leather lobbyists, who did not want to lose the “fattest” segment of their market, constantly put obstacles in the way of new material. After Mikhail Pomortsev died in 1916, his invention was gathering dust on the shelf for almost 20 years.
The tarpaulin was revived in 1934 – two Soviet scientists, Sergei Lebedev and Boris Byzov, developed a formula for cheap rubber, which could be impregnated with fabric and made it look like leather.The mass production of kirzachs for the needs of the army was established by Ivan Plotnikov. The first samples, which were tested on the battlefields of the Soviet-Finnish war, showed themselves from the worst side – they cracked and burst from frost. Despite the fiasco, Plotnikov was instructed to improve the technology at the earliest possible rate, and he coped with the task. By 1942, in the midst of the Great Patriotic War, well-known indestructible kirzachs began to arrive at the front. Walking to Berlin, Soviet soldiers made these boots one of the symbols of Victory and the most popular footwear of the post-war period.
Interesting fact: The advantage of tarpaulin boots over the shoes of soldiers of other armies participating in World War II can be judged at least by the fact that in the US Army on the European front, 12,000 soldiers were out of action in just one month due to rheumatism and fungal diseases caused by constant dampness, poor hygiene and uncomfortable windings, which became a real breeding ground for pathogenic microbes.
The first military boots that seriously competed with the boots were the M-1943, which came to the front as an element of the uniform set of the same name for American soldiers of the Second World War. They were modified service boots made of soft leather with a high top (the outer part of the upper part of the shoe that covers the back of the foot) and a cuff that replaced the ill-fated winding and fastened with special belts, which accelerated the process of dressing the soldier. The M-1943 had a solid sole and a heel made of synthetic rubber or recycled rubber. For warfare in the jungle and mountainous terrain, the soles of these boots were equipped with special spikes.
Almost unchanged, these boots served until the Korean War, but in 1955 Nathan Huck invented and patented the cogged sole, for which he received the nickname “cogged king”. The American military liked the idea so much that they equipped the regular boots with Haka soles and received full-fledged Jungle boots (boots for the jungle). Thanks to the sole, reminiscent of a tank track, soldiers in Vietnam made it much easier to move over rough terrain during the rainy season. In addition, in the new boots, the weight was distributed more evenly and the load on the foot was reduced, which is a big plus for an infantryman, since now, when walking and running in full uniforms, the legs did not get tired so much and not so quickly.
Interesting fact: During the war in Africa, British soldiers began to massively buy locally made shoes in the Cairo market. These boots are called Desert boots , or, in simpler terms, deserts. These boots, made of soft suede and with a crepe sole, provided less stress on the foot and excellent thermoregulation, which is of great importance in the desert, as the heat of the day gives way to piercing cold at night. To this day, these shoes are considered one of the universal elements of men’s wardrobe.You can wear them all year round and not be afraid to sweat or freeze.
Those same boots
The well-known silhouette of the modern ankle boot owes its appearance to Corcoran. In the west, most boots of this style, regardless of the manufacturer, are often called “Corcoran”. During World War II, the United States experienced an urgent need for special footwear for paratroopers, since boots with windings or M-1943 (which appeared a little later than the Corcorans) were not suitable for jumping, and could simply lead to injury to the paratrooper.
From its inception (1941) until the fall of 1942, Corcoran Stoughton tested the “landing boot”. After a painstaking analysis of already existing samples of German jumping shoes and boots of American firefighters, as well as after long experiments with materials, the contractors presented the same high-top boots to the military.
Over the past seventy-odd years, the design of this shoe has remained almost unchanged, but the scope has expanded.Today, the overwhelming majority of soldiers in the world, especially those armies that are part of NATO, use ankle boots as their main type of footwear. In the United States, for example, soldiers have two main types of military boots: Temperate – for service in temperate climates (they are darker in color and have medium thermal insulation, and a shock-absorbing polyester polyurethane sole is highly resistant to abrasion and slip), and Hot – designed for countries with hot climates and with ventilation holes (like all other types of American military shoes, Hot boots are made from cattle skins and waterproof breathable canvas).However, in other countries, such as Russia, where there is a wide variety of climatic zones, soldiers began to be dressed in ankle boots relatively recently, since the modern realities of warfare have shown their advantage over boots. But this issue is still the subject of controversy among the military.
Interesting fact: There is another type of special military footwear, which, like ankle boots, has penetrated into civilian markets. We are talking about shoes for tankers.Yes, in our country, tankers, like all soldiers, walked in boots, but in Europe and the United States, things were different. Back in the First World War, the crews of French tanks came up with the idea of equipping their regular boots with special belts. In the cramped and unreliable tanks of that time, in the event of a fire, it was necessary to leave the car with incredible speed, and any tanker who got caught in something and got stuck was doomed to death. Having gone through many wars and turned from boots to boots, tankers’ shoes retain fasteners instead of laces as an essential attribute.
War and Peace
The military footwear industry has always gone hand in hand with the civilian clothing market – this is a fact. A striking example of this is World War II – it gave birth to a whole generation of young people, morally and physically crippled. They could not find themselves in a peaceful life, so they bought motorcycles and went to travel around the country. This is how bikers appeared. What does a biker need besides an iron horse? That’s right – durable and comfortable shoes.
Military contractors, for whom the end of the war was a serious blow to their business, decided to seize the last chance.They began to compensate for their losses at the expense of the civilian clothing market – there were a lot of military ammunition in stores. This, in turn, attracted the younger generation (yes, the very thing that, together with the ankle boots, began to buy bombers and shave baldly). For the most part, they appreciated the look and the way it reinforces the punch in this shoe. At that time, models appeared where the most vulnerable part of the shoe – the sock or “glass” – was metal.
In the Soviet Union, after the war, everyone wore tarpaulin boots – the war-tattered production simply could not offer the civilian market anything else, and there was no particular sense in this.The whole country was engaged in the development of industry, each person built something, loaded it, felled. In fact, from the military front, the soldiers went to the front, a worker with similar living conditions.
