In the high-knee boots construction, two separate section can be
recognized: the shoe proper [the bottom or hard (feet) part]
and the soft upper section.
This soft upper section is known in Polish as "cholewka", and person
who manufactured it, was known as cholewkarz. Shoemaker (Polish: szewc)
was engaged in the fabrication of the lower high-knee boot section.
