Although these days’ boots are made from a variety of materials, such as various types of synthetics, suede and leather products, sheepskin remains as one of the most popular materials used in the manufacturing of sheepskin boots. Natural sheepskin offers several unique and beneficial properties that are not found in any other material.
Genuine sheepskin contains lanolin, which is a natural wax produced by sheep to protect the wool and skin against the effects of harsh environment. It is therefore not surprising that lanolin is commonly used in manufacturing of cosmetic products designed for protection, treatment and beautification of skin. Wearing your genuine sheepskin boots barefoot provides the same protective and moisturizing benefit from lanolin in the wool.
In addition, sheepskin is a naturally thermostatic material. This allows it to maintain your feet in ideal body temperature in any climate. Sheepskin boots made from genuine sheepskin not only keep your feet cozy and warm in winter, but can also be comfortably worn in warmer weather since sheepskin draws moisture away from your feet thus keeping them cool.
Furthermore, natural sheepskin is softer than synthetic materials and tends to stretch slightly with wear. This allows sheepskin boots to mould to the shape of your feet, while the wool inside provides cushioning and softness. It is no wonder, sheepskin boots made from genuine sheepskin are the perfect choice for wear both in and outdoors.
With such high level of comfort, insulation and moisturizing qualities, sheepskin boots have always been popular not only with athletes, but also with people affected by arthritis or poor circulation. In the last few years the unparalleled comfort of sheepskin boots has been discovered by many celebrities and the development of various fashionable styles of sheepskin boots has transformed them into a must have accessory for any wardrobe.
Australians have always been proud of the fact that genuine sheepskin boots have traditionally been made in Australia and are committed to manufacturing premium quality, fashionable sheepskin boots.
