Tall boots. Short boots. Rain boots. Suede boots. Boots are so hot when it's cold outside. And when it comes to wintertime in Michigan, the best pairs are the ones that keep your toes nice and toasty. That's especially true for your little ones. But warm boots don't have to be boring. They can have a kid kick, too.
EMU, an Australian-based company known for its premium sheepskin and Merino wool products, manufactures the Little Creatures boot series, which is a basic sheepskin boot that's been embellished to transform the boot into a critter. This season's styles include a ladybug for girls ($89) and a bear for boys ($79).
Yes, they're a bit of a splurge, but here are a few reasons why these boots are worth the price. They have a durable EMUsole, which allows for support and comfort. Plus, the sheepskin lining keeps moisture out and feet dry as your children play in the snow. And ladybug and bear boots are pretty adorable!
Little Creatures boots can be purchased at EMUAustralia.com. Select Macy's stores carry EMU boots for children, as well, but we'd suggest calling the store in your area before making the trip to the mall. Boots are sold in toddler size 8, little kids sizes 9-12 and kids sizes 13 and 1-4. If you purchase the boots through EMU's website, shipping is free.
