I got a chance to experience Warmbat boots with something even more special: the World’s First Eco-Friendly Sheepskin™ created to meet the demands of people who care about their health, and the health of the environment. health of everyone and for the duty to the environment. This sheepskin is tanned and finished strictly with Chrome-free tanning agents and chemicals. The Eco-Friendly Sheepskin™ consists of double face for boots and single face for shoe lining and some other varities.
Tanning of hides is not a particularly environmentally friendly process, but the production process for these boots is friendly to the environment The products used in tanning are chrome-free and are recyclable, and can be biodegraded. Even better, these boots not only look and feel good, they won’t irritate sensitive, allergic skin.
Why would you plunk down your dollars for sheepskin? For starters, the fashion world has been embracing similar boots, such as UGGS, for so long, sheepskin is here to stay and isn’t a passing fad. These are as great as UGGS but they’ve got even more features to love.
Apart from being a fashion statement, there are practical reasons to buy Warmbat boots for colder months. For starters, ounce for ounce, sheepskin is stronger than steel. That means sheepskin boots can last for years, with minimum care (*a spritz of water repellant on new boots is a good idea). Unlike other soft leathers with soft linings like Rabbit Fur, sheepskin wool won’t shed, because it’s attached to the skin. And Sheepskin wool is is not just soft and luxurious to the touch, the fibers “breathe” to act just like a natural thermostat for your body. These fibers are hollow, and can absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture without feeling wet, so they can actually “wick away” moisture from your feet, to help keep warm and dry. If you go barefoot in your boots, you’ll not only enjoy the delicously soft cushioning of the sheepskin wool, but sheepskin also contains lanolin, which will moisturize your feet for additional comfort.Sheepskin. Apparently sheepskin is also: static-free ; flame resistant and wind-proof. Sheepskin is a pure organic product and is unlike any other fiber in the world. If you wear your Warmbat boots long enough, they will conform to the shape of your foot.
There are so many style to choose from you really have to check out the Warmbat web site, but
I tried the Geko Grip Short approx $159.00. This boot is a short boot that will come up about 3″ from your ankle. It was inspired by the Gecko lizard (no, not that annoying Aussie critter in the TV insurance commercials), whose grip allows it to climb walls and ceilings with easet has a rugged, These have a rugged, “workboot” style Rubber Gecko Grip outsole that will help you keep your footing on ice and snow ( a larger green gecko is part of the grip design). There’s a leather heel and toe cap for added protection. Inside, of course, there’s that soft bedding of wooly, luxurious sheepskin to cradle your foot in total bliss! There’a also a gently washable, removable, sheepskin lined, cushioned, memory foam footbed. Each pair of boots comes with a free additional pair of memory foam insoles so you can customize the fit a bit more. The soft, double-faced Australian Merino sheepskin can be folded down even a bit farther to make it a true ankle boot with a fluffy puff of interior sheepskin. There’a slaos a designer touch: an eye-catching strip of coloful, embroidered circles running up the middle of the back of the book, featuring authentic Australian aboriginal artwork. There’s also a discreet Warmbat Australia logo on the back of the heel. The boot comes in very wearable colors: sand chocolate, chestnut (rust) black and a soft, khaki green.
The stitching and quality of these boots are simply superb. It may still be balmy outside, but the weather IS going to turn. Why not be fashionable and pampered and warm this Winter? All if takes is a pair of Warmbat Eco-Friendly Sheepskin™ boots. These would make an amazing gift, too.
