There are people who love their boots for style. They might even wear them in blistering heat and refuse to give it up even when they have lost their shape and sheen. For such boot lovers there is good news from Australia. New EMU is here and apart from its stylish looks and finish its greatest quality is that they are water resistant. The kind of tests the company put the boots through they seemed to be water proof.
It is a sheepskin boot. The inside is warm and cozy and the exterior is water resistant suede like leather. Even after tests with water the leather didn’t dry or crack. The shape kept. The color deepened but in a happy way. Sheepskin being a natural insulator keeps the moisture out and minimizes the smelly feet problem. The water repellant chemicals are not sprayed on at the end of the process but added through the tanning process.
This year will be witness to several new styles of EMUs. There will be an asymmetrical lace up high boot, called the Tundra. It will retail for about $200. They have boots for everyone – women, men and children. Apart from boots EMU also produces and markets sweater coats, scarves and shrugs.
