    This is a "Platinum" line Emu model, which according to their packaging literature means: it is made in Australia, not China (in contrast with many of Emu's other models and competitors' models); it has genuine australian sheepskin uppers; it is made with genuine Australian shearling. I bought these because they were made in Australia using aussie sheep materials, while the various other brands (mainly Ugg) used less authentic material for the uppers and were made in China with the high defect rates and short life spans, based on myriad reviews, that chinese-made products so often exhibit. Aussie Dog seemed to have more robust materials and quality, but were made of pigskin uppers instead of sheepskin (less authentic, but a mixed blessing - longer lasting but heavier).

    As a northeasterner, I initially thought Australian ugg boots were meant to be suitable for winter outdoor wear, but while shopping around learned they are meant for indoor, dry weather/terrain, or warm climate use. As I was also shopping for winter slippers, I noticed that prices for insulated or shearling slippers cost about the same as for these authentic Australian not-made-in-china ugg style boots. So I bought these as winter slippers that I could also use to take out the garbage, or run dry-weather out-of-the-house errands or short dog walks.

    These are light and comfortable. They feel plush and comfy in bare feet, tight in medium weight socks, and best wearing thin dress socks. I bought a size 10 and almost always wear a size 9; the fit is perfect. The sheepskin uppers come with some degree of water resistant stuff on them. A smattering of light rain won't cause harm but don't get them wet.

    I purchased these for warm winter indoors footware. They are very comfortable, warm and are easy to get in and out of. The soles do not leave ugly footprint marks on the carpet like a workboot's lug soles do. They would be fine for walking outside too, but that is not my purpose for them. I would not use them for working in the yard as I have workboots for that which give better support to the ankle and are meant to get dirty. These EMU's are made in Australia of Australian sheering. They run true to size - I wear a size 13 (U.S.) dress shoe and work boot and the EMU size 13 fits well. I have a rather narrow foot, but there seems to be sufficient room for wider feet too (unless you have truely wide feet). As posted in another review here, they do tend to pull your socks down as you walk. I solved that "problem" by switching to tight-fitting hiking socks that the boots can not pull down. I purchased the least costly color (color was not very important for my in-the-house use) which was "Sand". Turns out that Sand is a really nice color and at $99.75 was a very good price for these authentic Australian boots.

    The fact that these were made in Austrailia was the clincher
    when order placed. They arrived on time, and are comfy/cozy
    and warm. Hightly recommended, just wish the price was
    in double digits

    EMU is by FAR the BEST winter sheep skin linned boot you can buy. They are far superior to those CHEAP made in China UGGS that everyone else wears. If you do your research you will want the quality of TRUE AUSTRALIAN made sheep skin boots.
    NOTE: Be sure to get the one's labeled PLATINUM because I can not vouch for the others.

    I just ordered these and put them on, they are amazingly comfortable, a little tight in the toe area but nothing that a few days to break them in won't fix. They are really comfortable and warm.

    The only negative thing I could say is that the back tends to slide up and down on your heel a bit while walking but its not that big of a deal, especially if you're a fan of looser shoes.

    ******

    So after a few months of wearing these I felt like I had to update my review.
    These are still comfortable to wear, but only around the house or to trips to the grocery store.
    I've tried wearing these to school or just as I would regular shoes in day to day life and they become very uncomfortable to wear, my feet, legs and back get achy and tired to the point that I wish I would have just worn my tennis shoes. I do however love wearing them around the house, or if I'm running to the store or any place where I know for sure that walking will be very limited.

    I wear socks with my boots because they do end up being a little too roomy once the fur settles in and as a result I have to reach down and pull my socks back up every now and then, not a deal breaker but a minor inconvenience.

    Finally, the thin rubber sole seems to be coming off but that appears to be the only structural damage and as I plan to wear them around the house only it doesn't bother me too much but the fact that its only been a few months of moderate light use is cause for warning.

    With high hopes for comfort and function. They were very comfortable....but immediately separated in the sole. With a replacement how can I hope for the long enduring wear, especially at the considerable price for glorified slippers? If the next pair prove to be worth it I will review them much differently.
