Lapti are the traditional shoes of the Russian peasants made from bast (fiber from the bark of the linden tree or birch tree). The word lapti apparently originated from the word “lapa”, which meant “foot” in old times, and now means paw. Until the beginning of the 20th century lapti were worn in every Russian village.  https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/182884_464040387005267_1264201661_n.jpg
