I once swore I would never wear a sheepskin boot in public. I have stood by this promise until now and EMU Australia is why I’ve had a change of mind…
As the weather changes and winter approaches, scores of my friends pull out their sheepskin boots to keep their toes snug in the colder months. I have been told countless times how comfortable they are and how they feel as if you are wearing your warm, cosy slippers all day long. Well, that’s just it. Why on Gods green earth is it OK to walk around in your slippers all day? (Unless you are a mum and in desperate need of coffee/nappies/fresh air and happen to run out the house in your slippers).
Each winter on the commute to work or on the morning school run, I see ladies walking around in their sheepskin boots. To me it looks like they are wearing tree trunks, that are loose around the ankles and start to sag at the sole. You can even hear the boot drag across the floor with each step that they take. No amount of guaranteed comfort could get me to walk around in the ill-fitting, saggy sheepskin tree trunk-like boots. But comfy sheepskin boots that look good could change my mind…
EMU Australia, celebrates its 20-year anniversary this October and their entire sheepskin Originals collection has been revamped. They have included a 30% lighter outsole, tapered the profile of the boots and provided a more flexible fit. Goodbye saggy sheepskin boot and hello warm, comfy EMU Australia sheepskin boots that are also stylish. Since these boots have a better, tapered fit they look better than all other sheepskin boots out there and don’t sag or drag. Yup, I’m now a convert.
To further mark the occasion of their 20th anniversary, EMU Australia have launched their iconic Stinger Lo Boot in 20 colours. Most of the EMU Australia range is water resistant and there are some styles that are even waterproof.
My favourite EMU Australia Women’s boot is the Alba which comes in 6 neutral-ish colours. I like them because they have a sheepskin ‘cuff’ at the top and buttons up the back. I have the EMU Australia Alba in Chestnut for myself and the EMU Australia Alba Kids in Chocolate for my little Bug. I even have the little Toddle boots in Chestnut for our new baby girl. Us three girls are kitted out and ready to take on a blistery winter with our EMU Australia boots!
EMU Australia Kids range caters for Big Kids (from UK kids size 7) and Little Kids (from 6-12 months). Kids have the choice of many of the adult styles as well as the cutest Little Creatures range which are to die for.
My feet are really grateful to EMU Australia for these super comfy and super stylish sheepskin boots, as are my daughters’ feet. We are looking forward to toasty-warm toes this winter.
