Creepers of my dream

Today I want to tell you about one strange kind of shoes that I am sure you all have seen many times but didn't actually recognize or notice it. The type of shoe is called "creeper" or "brothel creeper"(honestly I don't understand why brothel). 

Сегодня я хочу рассказать вам о странных боитночках, которые вы наверняка где-нибудь да видели, но не обратили на них особого внимания(а зря!). Так вот, имя таким боитночкам - криперы.

Jeffrey Campbell creepers

It is known that their origin takes place in the years following World War II, when soldiers in North Africa had to wear suede boots with hardwearing crepe soles to protect their feet from the severe climate.
Some time later in 1950s the shoes were worn by the youth in London especially by subculture called Teddy Boys. (We all can thank George Cox who developed the style of shoes under the brand "Hamilton")

Известно, что криперы появились во времена Второй мировой войны, когда солдаты в Северной Африке носили замшевые ботинки с грубой креп-подошвой, чтобы защитить свои ноги от ужасных африканской погоды. Некоторое время спустя, а именно в поздних 50х криперы вдруг стали популярны среди лондонской молодежи, особенно у субкультуры Teddy Boys. (Можно за это поблагодарить Джорджа Кокса, который и раскрутил эту обувь под брендом "Hamilton")

Teddy Boys!

And now creepers are becoming popular again among different kinds of people. I hope that this trend will stay for a long time because I am a great fan of creepers and it would be quite difficult for me to say good bye to them ^__^

А теперь криперы вновь возвращаются, на этот раз правда они популярны не только среди субкультур. Я очень надеюсь, что этот тренд продлится долгое время, ибо я огромный их фанат и мне будет нелегко с ними попрощаться ^__^
