I treated myself to these a couple of weeks ago when I saw they were on offer for 25 pounds with free delivery and am very glad I didn't delay as I returned thinking to treat my mother in law to a pair, to find the price has gone back up again.
I was watching second hand uggs on ebay, and then had decided to save up for some Emu stingers, but when i saw the price of these I couldn't justify the spend! They are a really nicely constructed boot, and I like the suede finish as I live on a farm and with animals and small children stains are high risk factor. I chose cognac, and its a kind of deep chestnut with a matt look. The interior (fluff up the leg) is much more synthetic than an ugg as it is 30 per cent acrylic (and yes made in China) but very warm all the same. The insole which is sheepskin is not very deep pile but warm n comfy. The sole is not particularly non slip but I bought these as a house slipper that I can keep on to pop out n pull some veg or hop in the car for the school run and they are super toasty- I made the mistake of strolling up the hill a 2 mile or so walk on uneven terrain in them on a cold dry morning last week n regretted it. I have narrow heels and the movement in the solid heel part at the back took the skin off one of my heels.I will have to shop for a heel insert (recommendations welcomed). I ordered my usual size and the fit is fine,(except for the heel issue!)
At the price they are now I would definitely opt for an Emu stinger, but if they go back on offer I recommend grabbing them as I got a bargain!
