Invention of kirza sapogi was considered as important as invention of Katyusha rocket launcher and constructions of the famed Soviet airplanes. At the end for World War II Soviet Red Army had 10,000,000 soldiers wearing kirza boots. Till the end of 20th century kirza boots were the standard footwear for Soviet and Russian servicemen. Russian foot wrap for bootsKirza jack boots were worn together with a foot wrap. Foot wraps were more convenient than socks, because they could be made from locally available materials, dried faster, and frayed slower (as the material could be wrapped around a foot differently). Although the main advantage was that because of a foot wrap, a soldier could wear bigger size boots. All these advantages kept soldiers’ feet healthy and safe. Till nowadays kirza is produced according to Plotnikov recepies of the war time. Specialists say that over the entire history 150,000,000 pairs of kirza boots were produced.
Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine complimented the album's consistency, but felt that "Hesketh's shrewd choice of collaborators is often squandered on rather rudimentary song structures and lyrical ideas. That doesn't make Nocturnes any less enjoyable of a dance-pop album, but it's ultimately what will keep Little Boots from becoming the next Madonna , or the next Robyn for that matter."  In a mixed review, Katherine St. Asaph of Pitchfork Media noted that " Nocturnes finds [Little Boots] settling on one that aspires to the distance of Saint Etienne 's Sarah Cracknell or Sophie Ellis-Bextor . She's not quite there, and when her approach doesn't work, it really doesn't". Nevertheless, St. Asaph viewed the album as "a big improvement over Hands , [...] where even the biggest singles' hooks were made of saccharine, not sugar."  Consequence of Sound 's Dan Pfleegor opined that "[t]he trouble with Little Boots' choice in house music is that there's little room for experimentation. At times, lyrics rhyme just to be adhesive and the beats drone on and on and on", while concluding that "Little Boots can always be counted on to do what she does best though: keep us moving, keep us feeling, and, of course, keep us dancing."  Clash ' s Jack Scourfield expressed, "For the most part, [...] Nocturnes feels a bit tired—'Broken Record' [...] even apes her own past hit ' Stuck On Repeat ' lyrics-wise. But the results here feel somewhat less spirited."  Despite writing that the album "features some catchy and classy electronic dance music ", Kurt Murphy of the NME critiqued that "'Broken Record' sounds like a Eurovision -endorsed soundtrack to Cassack [ sic ] dancing and 'Satellites' is a limp version of Madonna's ' Ray of Light '."
