Although I can't imagine running fast in these woolen boots, I am definitely toastier than a shrimp on the barbie on Bondi Beach, mate.
The emu is Australia's national bird - favoured for its fast running, resilience, and resourcefulness - and even features alongside the kangaroo on the Australian Coat of Arms. Thus, the 15-year old sheepskin and merino wool boot and apparel label EMU Australia has embraced the bird's name for its brand.
I'm wearing the Stinger Lo in a gorgeous camel sheepskin in 'Chestnut'.
I love the shaped inside heel for comfort and foot support. Definitely the best I've tried.
Stinger Lo ($219) with Apollo Bay gloves ($179)
We love the fun colurblocking colourways the boots come in such as this Stinger Hi ($249) in purple.
This dark brown Hobart boot is divine. ($269)
