Soviet boots in military reenactment

Historical/ War Reenactment

Reenactment is a comparatively new but a very popular hobby of restoring historical battles, a specific active leisure with elements of extreme. It is based on a historical information and items left from the event, and is made as close to the original battle as possible. Most of the focus is on the study and practical usage of military art which is characteristic for that period – reenactors search very responsibly in order to find information about the battle in the sources of that time, and if something is missing, made assumptions based on the common sense. As the result, there is a spectacular entertaining event which is interesting not only for the participants, but also for the audience.

Proper costume is an important part of the reenactment, that is why Soviet boots are actively used in historical or war reenactments of the battles of Soviet period wars.

People, who are great on history, are interested to recreate the uniforms, equipment, and weapons of soldiers and officers of various eras and wars. All war elements have to be confirmed by scientific sources.
Reenacting is popular all over the world. For example, in Japan people reconstruct the uniform of the Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army during the World War II. Red Army admirers are in the United States as well. In Spain, in its turn, there is a group of people who reconstructs Polish Army. Participation in military-historical reenactments requires considerable expenses. The price of one uniform set, depending on reconstructed army and its branch may reach 1,000 $.
In reenactment, participants wear "remakes", i.e. clothes and footwear sewn or made today. Authentic stuff, of course, also occurs, but very rarely because rarities should be used very carefully. Some fans of "living history" manage to gather such an impressive collection of weapons, ammunition, and uniforms that any museum would envy them. It is important to mention that military rarities are valuables and can be converted to real money.
Over time, a number of printed and online media about reenactment has appeared. One of the most recognized magazines is British “The Skirmish Magazine”. It publishes historical articles and reports from reenactment events. Theme forums play an important role as well: reenactors meet there, share their views and information.
It is hard to convey the feeling of putting on a historical uniform. In fact, it is a trip to the past. Military-historical reenactments are the best lessons of military history. Patriotism is brought up on the historical memory, and this memory should be saved for future generations.

The most popular for historical reenactments are:

-       Soviet-Finnish War

-       World War I

-       World War II

-      Afghanistan War

and others..

 

A participant of a reenactment says: 
It’s very involving! You start to realize how crazy difficult it was for our grandfathers to fight for freedom. Even going only 100 meters, even without real bullets whistling past your ears, you naturally start feeling yourself like a real soldier.

People fond of reenactment are of different occupations, marriage statuses, income levels, but they are united by reenactment romantics, thirst for knowledge, and patriotic feelings. They organize historical reenactment clubs to meet new friends and discuss and organize reenactment battles. Number of reenactors increases rapidly, and we are always happy to provide our boots for any reenactor needs.
