EMU Boots - The Trendy Sheepskin Brand From Australia
There are a lot of producers of Sheepskin Boots, and EMU Boots is one of them. Compared to other companies, EMU Boots is relatively new to the industry.

During the 1970’s, the company was inclined on selling tanned sheepskin. Their market is mostly Australian surfers who buy the sheepskin and create their surf boots on their own. Seeing how their customers use the sheepskin they sell, a spark of idea came to them. Why not make shoes out of the sheepskin that we supply? The trade of Sheepskin Boots then commenced. To attract more buyers, they developed Sheepskin Boots that have better performance and quality.
EMU strives to produce Sheepskin Boots whose material is mostly from Australian Sheepskin. The boots are line with Micron 20, a pure Australian Merino Wool. While other companies add different kinds of wool, EMU does not. Thirty millimeters of wool are utilized to weave the wool. Thereafter, this fabric is placed in the boot. After this process, the product is trimmed down to twenty millimeters. Some companies recycle the trimmings by using it for the lining for other shoes.
However, there is a disadvantage with reusing trimmings: the strands are too short that they do not stick well to the lining. Eventually, these fibers will fall out, giving a worn out look for your Sheepskin boots. Also, this makes the boots more prone to water permeation. Instead of giving warmth and dryness to your feet, it will tend to get cold and moist.
EMU makes sure that you do not experience such by making sure that the wool and the process that it undergoes are of high quality. EMU boots effectively prevent more than 2/3 of moisture from getting inside your boots. This also prevents the user from catching Athlete’s foot or having smelly feet.
