Emu Australia Women's Stinger Hi Boot,
This review is from: Emu Women's Stinger Hi Boot (Shoes)
I've had these boots since December and I'm really pleased with them! Have never had any Uggs but just observing people wearing them, I don't think they look as nice as Emus. I have black ones and have also noted the dye comes out a little on your feet if you wear them barefoot. It's not too bad though and I think its worth the lovely feel of the soft sheepskin on your toes!
The question of sizing...I am a very regular size 5 and so I just ordered these in a 5, which are about right. The sheepskin has now bedded down a bit so they are slightly loose on my feet but as I have quite muscly calves and these are the high boots, I wouldn't have risked a smaller size. You can always wear chunky socks once the sheepskin beds down if they become a bit too big. I don't find it's a problem anyway.
These really are great boots and although I've never tried Uggs, I can't imagine they'd be any nicer than these, particularly at twice the price! I like the fact that the high tops also fold down really easily which gives you another option looks-wise. Clearly I may have given all this a bit too much thought(!) but hopefully it will be useful for anyone thinking of buying them. I'd recommend them.
