This gentleman in Khatanga, Siberia, Russia, makes some real nice reindeer boots. You can see the boots in this picture made by the Dolgan Indians.

The Dolgans used these ceremonial boots in a Dolgan dance in the northern part of central Siberia, Khatanga public school

These Siberian reindeer boots are just for Costume use in the Siberian Ceremonies of the Dolgan Indians of Siberia.

I met this man in the store in Khatanga Siberia. 

He was a very nice man who probably would never hurt a flea.  As you can see, the Siberian boots are extremely beautiful.  The boots here are not complete, however.  He waits until he gets a customer and then custom fits the sole to the boot and the customers feet.   I don't think warmth is the main goal of these boots, it is the beauty.  These boots look very similar to what the Dolgan (also spelled Dolgane and Dogon Tribe). and Nganasan Indians were using in their celebration dance ceremonies at the Siberian public school auditorium. 

Khatanga is properly pronounced Ha-Tin-Ga.   The older people pronounce it with a sound that I cannot reproduce, but the younger people say Ha Tin Ga, leaving the "K" is silent.  However when I was in Moscow and was talking to people from there, they said that there are Khatanga Restaurants in Moscow pronounced using the "K"

This picture was taken in the North Pole-Siberian Expedition of 2002.  Today, December 23, 2007 I received a Merry Christmas phone call from Khatanga.  I have really enjoyed the good friends that I have met in Siberia, they are a different and special kind of people.
