Children’s Kisy (deerskin boots)

Kisy are an essential footwear for the northern region. It is sewn of deerskin called kamus. The sole of kisy is sewn of deerskin taken from the hoof part of a deer leg. The fur on this part of deerskin is stiff, elastic and thanks to this the snow does not stick to the sole. People use the skin of young deer or skin of a deer caught in autumn for making children's kisy because their fur is less fluffy and more wearproof.

Kisy are very popular today. Residents of the Arctic region prefer to wear kisy in winter because it is very warm and comfortable shoes.
