Proudly Made in New Zealand

Our sheepskin footwear is all proudly made in New Zealand As all our footwear is manufactured for us in New Zealand by a single footwear manufacturer, we have strict control over quality standards.
 
Our manufacturer implements very stringent quality control measures for all footwear produced for us. We have an extremely low rate of defect of approximately 1 in 400 pairs.
 
 
Many retailers especially in the US are now importing their sheepskin footwear from China. The quality of such products is often poor and our high consistency levels for quality cannot be matched. Even much of UGG Australia ugg boots and sheepskin slippers now come from China.
 
Our sheepskin boot manufacturer, based in Canterbury in New Zealand's South Island, has specialized in the manufacturing of sheepskin footwear for over 15 years. Whilst we have tried other companies, none have been able to offer the same high quality, consistency and excellent workmanship. We continually work closely with them to develop new styles and variations, many of which are exclusive to us.
 
Delighted Customers
We receive numerous e-mails each week from delighted customers. They often comment both on our quality of workmanship, best materials and outstanding value. If they haven't purchased from us before, they are often surprised at the quality we offer for such a low price. Many times we hear about other brands of shearling boots that cost twice as much and only offer half the quality of ours.
 
Below we have picked one typical testimonial from some of our main boot styles:
 
Spilled Wool Tall Ultimate Sheepskin Boot
"My spilled wool boots are gorgeous, these can stand up on their own, unlike a famous American brand! The insoles are twice the thickness! What's more, they are so much cheaper. Higher quality at a lower price with first class service - what more could a customer want. Thank you very much."
    Mrs A. C., North Yorkshire, England
 
Tall Women's Sheepskin Boots: Classic EVA
"I just wanted to let you know how delighted I am with my new sheepskin boots. They arrived about a week after I ordered them. They are absolutely gorgeous and a real talking piece amongst my friends. Your company definitely shows value for money... I will be sure to let everyone know where I got them from!! Thanks so much."
    Mrs I. J. S., Mt Pritchard, NSW, Australia
 
Sheepskin Kiwi Boots
"Always astounded by the speed I receive my orders, particularly since I'm ordering from the USA. Quality highly superior to comparable products available in US (made in China). Even with overseas shipping, price is better than any I can find here. Kiwi Sheepskin has a customer for life with our family."
    Ms M. A. S., Illinois, USA
 
Mid Calf Classic EVA Sheepskin Boot
"My friend recommended your website and I have just bought some amazing boots. They arrived in a week and they're gorgeous, perfect timing for the weekend, thank you!"
    Miss C. B., Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK
 
Ultimate Sheepskin Mid Calf Boots
"The Ultimate Mid Calf boots arrived in excellent time and I gave them to my husband.
 
I later ordered a pair of Uggs for myself, which were available locally, and I have to tell you that your product stands HEAD AND SHOULDERS above the competition. The construction of your boot is superior, the shearling is far more plush and soft, the sole of the boot is sturdier...I'm extremely impressed, and I'm so peeved that I didn't just order a second pair of boots from you.
 
I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am about the quality of your product, and to let you know that I've given your web address out to several friends. Thanks so much for an excellent shopping experience"

    Mrs C. B., Texas, USA
 
Tall Sheepskin Boots - Ultimate Full Calf
"After extensive research on the internet and in retail stores, I found Kiwi Sheepskins to offer the highest quality product at the most reasonable price. Upon receiving my boots (very expeditiously), I have only greater praise to add in terms of comfort, fit and craftsmanship. I will certainly recommend to friends and family."
    Ms L. T., Wisconsin, USA

Kiwi Sheepskins Brand

Sheepskin boot showing the Kiwi Sheepskins brand
Whilst you won't pay a premium for Kiwi Sheepskins branded footwear, our own branding is still a sign of finest quality.
 
We will not allow our brand label to appear on anything but the best in sheepskin products - best in quality, best in value.
 
 
 
 
 
Quality Construction from Premium Sheepskins
Sheepskin boots made from premium sheepskins with quality features
We only use twin-faced sheepskin shearling which is tanned specifically for use as footwear.
 
This is the most expensive option as great care has been taken to produce a natural product that has both a soft suede-like finish on the outer side and the inner has a plush shorn lambswool pile.
 
This is all one skin, a totally natural product with no artificial or wool linings.
 
Companies offering cheaper imitations will sometimes refer to their products as "sheepskin" but they may only be sheepskin or wool lined, or in some cases have no genuine sheepskin at all!
 
Sheepskin boots require a carefully selected grade of shearling sheepskin providing a plush 5/8 inch thick sheepskin wool pile. The leather side of the sheepskins should be reasonably rigid but also sufficiently soft to give the best comfort. Particularly large fault-free skins are required so where possible the boot can be made from one piece to help avoid natural color variation.
 
Further the wool pile side of the sheepskin should be plush so that it provides supreme softness and warmth. Its soft wool fibers naturally insulate your feet keeping them warm and cosy.
 
Some manufacturers place a plastic stiffener in the heel. Customers often complain that this causes discomfort as it can rub against the heel or poke out. The hand selected sheepskins used for our boots don't require this artificial support and customers have found that our hide heel guard is both comfortable and sturdy.
 
Height of Boots
Our boots come in a variety of heights from ankle to full calf, plus the new extra tall Musketeer. The approximate measurements (shown below) are from a selection of our range and vary with footwear size. They're measured from the bottom of the sole to the top of the sheepskin upper. For more precise boot dimensions, see our footwear sizing help pop-up window.

Waterproofing and Protection

Sheepskin footwear protector waterproof spray When you buy shearling boots from us why not protect your investment by purchasing our sheepskin protector suitable for sheepskin slippers and boots. Our sheepskin footwear water repellent & protector spray protects the suede finish of sheepskin footwear from water and oily stains.
 
For best results apply when new and after cleaning.
 
All our boots come with a Kiwi Sheepskins swing tag with care instructions. Alternatively see our footwear cleaning instructions.
