Galoshes. What mokrostupa to the person to a horoshilishch?

V this summer time when the sky is continually discharged by a pouring rain, it is a high time to remember the old invention - galoshes. Though for the last decades interest in galoshes poissyak, revives now. The range of these rubber goods considerably extended, there were design developments, fashion designers include galoshes in the collections for demonstration on a podium.

The crocodile would like to get on galoshny factory for certain from the children`s fairy tale of Korney Chukovsky who called the author and with tears asked to send “for dinner dozen of tasty and sweet galoshes“. - nicely he would eat! But if it is serious, galoshes at such factory, really, measured - loads. Or, more precisely, probably - it is invisible. The most different sizes and such styles that not everyone saw. And nothing in that surprising, galoshes - the same footwear, and it has to be beautiful.

There are galoshes garden - for summer residents. Galoshes from our childhood - black and brilliant, with a traditional red lining which put on boots. Galoshes for valenoks, adult and children`s. Galoshes for women - with a coquettish heel. Galoshes for Muslims: the narrow nose is raised, a back low and with a spur it was convenient to remove, such willingly buy in Asia and in the North Caucasus.

That in mountain auls that we have in the Russian village good rubber galoshes - the first business: both are inexpensive, and are convenient, and are reliable, do not proceed and are durable in a sock. In a word, not a couple to beautiful, bright, but impractical hand-made articles from plastic which serve to the first rain slide on snow as skis, and break on a frost.

This the unpretentious, apparently, product in production demands thorough approach. Each “galoshina“ consists of more than ten details, and process of its production - of three tens technological operations. It is necessary to put on aluminum “foot“ in a knitted lining, to accurately lay an insole, to fit a thin rubber layer only 0,9 mm thick, to glue, dip into a tub with a varnish, to vulcanize to give it durabilities...

A basis of galoshny production in literal and figurative sense - hollow aluminum forms which not each master will manage to make. Therefore at one of galoshny factories strongly worried when in dashing 1990 - e non-ferrous metals hunters through a window literally povyuzhivat at night - pulled out a rod from the cart - nearly a half of aluminum blocks. As looked for them then in scrap metal yards, did not find - it is visible, thieves managed to let “foot“ on melting. But the remained blocks took under the most strict protection, and over time and new made, more various, for modern models.

Generally, about galoshes it is possible to write the whole volumes. Their history goes back to Indians who before distant campaigns covered legs with juice of a rubber tree, doing thus rubber “soles“. Galoshes registered in Europe in the 19th century. They quickly found popularity and became a prosperity symbol - carried them in any weather on holidays. So by no means not incidentally at the time of fight against domination of foreign words in Russian the classical phrase “horoshilishche was born approaches from a stadium on a shame in mokrostupa“ that in translation from “purely Russian“ means: “The dandy goes from circus to theater in galoshes“.

For the last decades interest in galoshes poissyak, but revives now. The range of these rubber goods considerably extended, there were design developments, fashion designers include galoshes in the collections for demonstration on a podium. So, you look, they soon also will return to wide use.

Yes, everything in life repeats!
