ABOUT THE DESIGN:
Straight from the alleyways and dark streets of Odessa comes this traditional Russian made "Telnyashka". Standard issued to Russian armed forces, it was made fashionable during the 40's and 50's by hoodlums, hooligans, Thieves, ex-cons and various other colorful characters and is still quite popular today with men and women in Russia.
On the front is the MIR Eagle logo. This eagle emblem has been around for thousands of years. It was first used by the Roman Empire. This type of Eagle was a powerful anti-establishment and anti-authority tattoo during the 50's and 60' . In Russian prison subculture, this type of symbol was usually meant to show disdain for the system and the Communist government. The eagle conveys the message "Strike first, Dont wait for them to hit you!"
MIR is a Russian word for "peace". But its an acronym for "Menya Ispravit Rastrel" meaning "Execution will Reform Me".
