    It's not that complicated. You should make two cloths of baze/fleese (50% wool, 50% cotton), size of each: around 40*90cm
    Then you wrap it. Check Russian wikipedia entering searchword Портянка you will see pictures of how it goes

    if it gets wet, you just unwrap, rotate and wrap agian. If it gets too wet, you take it off, 20 min and here we go - wrap again.

    You just brush boots with black shoe polish and dry when necessary.

    that's it. Don't forget to wrap these wraps (original name is PORTYANKI) tight. Otherwise you will hurt you feet.
