I have a lovely pair of Australia Luxe boots that I wanted to show you now that the weather has gotten colder. I’ve been meaning to share them with you for a while, but my Montana horseback riding vacation never happened, so they’ve been in the closet for a bit. But lo and behold, crisp weather has me pulling them out and throwing them on nearly daily!
These are truly luxurious boots, with rabbit fur trim and a gorgeous, soft Australian sheepskin and Australian shearling and lining. I met the Australia Luxe owner herself at FFANY and she was a lovely woman, someone who truly cares about and invests in her product. I mean, almost all of the boot materials are from Australia, which is more than I can say for a lot of the shearling boots out there! They come in grey, sand, chocolate and chesnut as well.
The shearling on the inside is so comfortable I could die. It’s no wonder every celebrity from Megan Fox to Jessica Alba has been seen in them! There isn’t a ton of arch support, but most of the shearling boots are made to be pretty flat on the bottom, something you can just slip on. They’re not just for apres-ski; these are a great commuting boot for cold days walking up those subway or train steps. The sole has good traction, and the fur keeps me really warm.
These are the short ones. Personally, I’d recommend the tall ones, especially if you live somewhere very cold with high snow drifts. And don’t forget to check out the rest of Australia Luxe’s winter collection, including outerwear and rain boots, here.
