… Of course, that is if they’ve heard of them!
There are a number of winter boot brands out there. You know who I am talking about. But have you heard of EMU Australia? If not, you might be missing out!
EMU Australia is one brand that is newer to me. While other brands have held the spotlight for awhile, I think I have been missing out on some really quality boots!Luckily, I got a chance to check out the Illoura style EMU Australia boots, to see whether or not I’ve really been living in the dark on this brand.
When they arrived (in a perfectly shaped boot-box) my husband was the first to open them. The first thing he said; “These are some darn nice looking boots.” And I couldn’t agree more. They really are darn nice looking. 😉 But beyond that, everything about these boots are exceptional. From the well designed, quality made structure, to the heavenly feet comfort.
Style is important! And EMU Australia definitely doesn’t lack it. They have plenty of cute styles for the Fall/Winter line and even more great styles coming soon for their Spring/Summer line. Boots, Shoes, Clothing and More. As for their famous boots, they have a wide selection for women, kids and for men. Thigh high boots, mid-calve boots and short ankle boots.
The Illoura style boots that I am showing off in the pictures – make my other bland and basic boots look like rubbish. These boots really are something to show off! I love the detail of the top strap and how I can wear them in two different ways! They sure are eye-catching… or what was it my husband called them? “Darn Nice Looking”, that’s right!The Illoura boots come in 3 Colors – Mushroom, Chocolate, Chestnut. I am wearing the mushroom color. Although, the name mushroom might not be appealing, the color sure is!
Overall stylish – these beautiful EMU Australia Illoura boots are both comfortable and fashionable. I can pair them with a casual dress, or with skinny jeans and a long sweater. I love wearing them with the fold down or up! Also, the vintage leather belt on the side can be tightened if I want a snugger fit or if I wear the fold up.
There are so many details and features of these EMU boots – embossed EMU branding, double stitched seams, moulded heel cup, a removable anatomically correct insole and a durable EMUsole ™. In my opinion, the little details show the true quality in the EMU brand. My feet are in heaven – or at least walking on the clouds. The cozy Australian wool is so comfortable! They are so comfortable, it makes it difficult to ever take them off! The Australian Wool is easy to take care of too – Easy Care, Natural, Anti-wrinkle, Durable, Machine washable, just to name a few!
- Adjustable vintage leather belt with antique metal details
- Premium embossed vintage leather & suede branding so you know it’s a genuine EMU
- Versatile wearing – folds up or down
Before ordering my size, I researched and found that the sizes are pretty correct. As it should be, right?! Finally, a boot that comes in the correct size! Honestly, I really hate when there is confusion about what size to order because other reviewers say they run big/small. I don’t mind trusting them, but it always feels a bit strange to select a bigger/smaller size. It makes me nervous to buy online when I am not buying my normal size! Anyone?
As you can see from the pictures, the Illoura boots are high to mid calve. When I fold the flap up they fit just above me knee. I like to wear them with the flap up and with the flap down! Both cute, I love the multi-functional wear!
- Superior double stitched seams for added strength
- Moulded suede leather heel cup for better fit and support
- Removable anatomically correct sheepskin lined insole. Leave it in, take it out or replace it if there is ever a need.
- Durable EMUsole™ hardwearing rubber and quality EVA inset inset for superior comfort and support
Sheepskin is truly what makes these boots different from the rest. EMU Australia is made from the finest Australian Sheepskin – which provides many, many benefits! For one, the Sheepskin in these fashion boots naturally ‘wick away moisture’ meaning odorless footwear! Hooray – nothing grosser than stinky boot!
The Sheepskin is also water resistant. They keep my feet dry and warm during the Winter’s rainy and snowy days! Since they are 100% Australian Sheepskin – the boots feel thicker and provides stronger structure around my legs and feet. Not to mention the Sheepskin is amazingly, fabulous, extraordinarily uber-comfortable! No joke!
- The EMU Australia Illoura is made with double face water resistant Australian sheepskin
- Water resistant helps reduce the risk of nasty liquid stains ruining your boots
5 Main Differences in the EMU Australia brand from the “Rest” of the Boot brand:
1. Water Resistant SheepSkin
2. 100% Australian SheepSkin
3. Molded Heel Cup
4. Anatomically correct moleskin lined insole
5. Tough rubber outsole with soft EVA inset.
These 5 things are what set these boots apart. For me, I definitely notice the anatomically correct moleskin lined insole-perfect fit. It is obvious they are well structured! I am impressed with the SheepSkin water resistance feature – tested and approved! I don’t have to spray on my own water protectant! The five differences, really, well… make a difference!These boots are everything I desire in a winter boot. They are stylish, comfortable, well-made and warm. I can wear them indoors or outside in wet conditions! I am so thrilled to become familiar with the EMU Australia brand and plan on purchasing EMU for many years to come!
