I have a pair of these boots, the nice soft fawn colored ones, and love them so much that I wore them essentially as rain boots. They became stained by the extreme salt and deicer used by our road crews. I could not bare to send them to Goodwill so I just took the chance and threw then in the washer and then the drier. Now I offer this advice with no guarantee and it might not mess up other things so please use your head, but it worked perfectly for me. I saved my boots. I then hit them with some water proof spray. LIKE NEW inside and out. I hope this hint saves someone some $$$.

I got my first pair of EMU Stinger Lo's (chestnut) in late 2010 and wore them practically every day for two winters. From day one, I could wear them without socks, walk around for hours, and be 100% warm and comfortable. Today, the outsides are dirty, but I still wear them and the lining's just as thick and warm as when I first got them. I LOVE these boots!

Fast forward to late 2012, I ordered the same pair of boots in a different color (charcoal). I even went to my Amazon order history from 2010 to ensure that I was ordering the exact same boots from the same page. My new boots arrived, and I put them on for a trip to the store. I noticed right away that the lining in the new pair was much softer and "fur-like"; not woolly, thick or dense like my older pair. I couldn't even finish my shopping trip before the seam at the top of the heel (above the EMU logo) poked through the lining and rubbed the backs of my heels raw. This definitely did NOT happen with my first pair in 2010.

I've worn the newer boots many more times since then, hoping I just needed to break them in, but I still can't wear them for an extended period without first putting bandaids on the back of my heels, AND wearing socks. This defeats the purpose of wearing the boots at all.

I tweeted EMU (@EMUAustralia), and emailed them through their website, asking if they changed their lining in the last two years, but received no response yet. Not cool, EMU. I am disappoint. Unless this lining thing is a fluke, I will not buy another pair of EMUs and will switch to UGG for my next pair.

I purchased these on a whim when they were one of the Amazon Lightning Deals a few months ago. I can't believe what I've been missing out on! I have since purchased two other pairs of Emus at regular price.

These are so comfortable, and I love the fact that they're waterproof. I wore them in the snow several times, and they didn't get ruined like other brands would have. They are also incredibly well-made. The soles and the inside shoe insert haven't worn down a bit, even though I have worn them nearly everyday during the winter.

They do run wide, and a little big, but luckily I had read that beforehand and purchased a size lower than my true shoe size.

These are a great alternative to UGGS. They are well made, very warm, and quite comfortable. While they do not come in as many colors as UGGs, they are a nice alternative and a good basic winter boot.

Size Name: 9 B(M) USColor Name: BlackVerified Purchase
I purchased these for my mom at a great price. She stated at first they fit perfect and were very comfortable. She was so happy with them! She wears a size 9&1/2 so I bought the size 9. Well after she wore them 2 days they stretched out sooo much, they are now starting to fall off of her feet as she walks. Now she is very disappointed. I don't know much about these type of boots, but I do know she owns a pair of bearpaw (size 9) and brumby (size 9) and neither of them have stretched out. Luckily I didn't pay full price for these boots since she has now worn them, we can't even return them. Looking to pass them on to someone with a size 10 foot. Be careful with these boots. The really stretch.

I love my EMU low stringer boots. They keep my feet warm and toasty. They are waterproof, I had previously purchased another brand of boot for winter and was very disapointed when I went in the snow and my feet were soaking wet in minutes. They are extremely comfortable and run wide. I usually have to buy a wide but these fit perfect right out of the box. I slso received them very quickly! I was concerned because they shipped from one of Amazon's partners and not direct from Amazon but no need to worry. They were very prompt! Even though I had to pay shipping it still ended up being cheaper then the department store where I could not find my size anyway. I got the gray and the color is beautiful! Looks great with jeans or pants. Great Purchase!

As a guy i have never purchased a boot for anyone in my life. The day before i purchase this boot i was searching for a boot for my wife in the mall and came back empty handed. UGG was just too pricey. That night i woke up early at around 5 AM and couldn't fall back to sleep. I went on Amazon on my iPhone and came across a 24 hour sale for EMU at 70% off. I immediately look at several boots and read all the reviews. I even research UGG. Ultimately i settle for the EMU Stinger Lo Premium Water Resistant for the price of $43 ($155 if not on sale). I picked the Stinger Lo Premium water resistant to give her feet some protection from the snow/rain. My wife feet size is 6-6.5 but i couldn't find any so i settle for size 7. Luckily it fits her nicely with socks on or without. My wife is extremely happy with the purchase and she said the boots kept her feet nice and toasty. I also paid an extra $18 to ship it next day, for a grand total of $63. This is a well worth purchase and a short live sale i might add. Less than 5hours later the sale ended because they sold it all out. As for the UGGs boots i think EMU is just as good in quality and comfort.

I bought this during an AWESOME deal...$71 bucks. wish i bought more...

Anyway, back to the review.
My first pair was defective. The inner sole can be removed, and the rubber was broken. So i obtained a replacement. Amazon was very good at that.
Second pair, came perfect. I am very happy with them. My feet are always cold so it's wonderful.

In comparison with UGG brand. I DO like UGGs better because it's lighter. But then the emu's do feel sturdier.
Quality-wise, i think they are similar.

I think emu's run a size bigger. My UGGs are 6 and EMUs are 5. When both were new, they fit perfect, now both are loose.

First, these are listed as the Stinger Lo "Premium", but according to EMU's website, the hang tag is different and the lining would be shearling, not wool. Saying that, for the sale price, I would have kept them if they had fit properly. I wear a 9 1/2 medium in all my day to day shoes, and based on the reviews from this site and others, I ordered down to a size 9, which is what I do with all my Uggs. My toes where at the end of the boot, but shearling boots typically stretch out with use, so that didn't worry me. What DID give me trouble was how WIDE the heel area was. It was so wide that my feet moved up and down with each step - a lot. I had to return them, which is a shame because the black boot was a nice looking boot.

One last thing, the lining was not thick and plush, and maybe that added to the issue with my heel floating around. I don't know if the thinness is because it was "wool" and not shearling, or what, but I thought I'd share that as well.
