It so happened that the times of the rule of I. V. Stalin and N. S. Khrushchev were radically different from each other, despite the fact that the country was one and the same - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Naturally, the habits, orders, way of life of people in different periods were different. For example, walking around the house with and without shoes. Why did this happen?
1. What is the difference between the two eras of the USSR
Under Stalin, practically the same Russian Empire was created, albeit under different slogans. When Khrushchev came to power, it was decided to equate the upper strata of society with ordinary people. At the industrial level, they began to produce not only military equipment and weapons, but also consumer goods.
The changed approach to organizing the life of the population, the large-scale construction of residential buildings entailed significant changes. They consisted not only of holding the XX Party Congress and the period of rehabilitation. The everyday life of the Soviet person also began to change. "Stalinists" and "Khrushchevs" are completely different things. Accordingly, completely different furniture was required. And the chemical industry began to develop actively. They began to produce other materials that quickly won their significant place in everyday life.
2. And what about the shoes in the house
The fact that under Stalin's rule people walked in shoes in their homes is a confirmed historical fact. They began to take off their shoes only in the last few years of Khrushchev's rule and the first years after Brezhnev took over as head of state. There were reasons for that.
In the forties and fifties of the last century, a huge number of rubber galoshes were made in the Soviet Union. There was a wide variety of models and styles. The fact is that then galoshes were almost always worn on other shoes, for example, shoes, boots. When people came to visit someone, they left galoshes in the hallway, and went into the room in clean shoes or other shoes.
Over time, everything changed, and the approach to making shoes also changed. The same boots began to be produced on more durable, reliable soles that did not get wet when in contact with moisture. Gradually galoshes became less in demand. But the country was developing, construction went on, the dirt on the streets did not disappear anywhere, like the dust. Of course, no one wanted guests in dirty dusty shoes to stomp on the clean floor of their home, because no one wore galoshes anymore.
In this regard, upon arrival from the street, people began to take off their shoes, leave their shoes in the hallway, and then walk right in socks or room slippers further into the apartment. In this case, the life of the townspeople is described, since the rural way of life was radically different from the urban one. The village has always had its own laws and orders.
