There is nothing better on a cold winter morning than to slip into a pair of super comfy sheepskins. Actually, it’s not just cold winter mornings it’s also afternoons, evenings and at the end of a hard day.
Sheepskin boots should be a staple wardrobe item in every Australian home, especially across the bottom half. I always have a couple of pairs to keep me warm and cozy on those frosty mornings and icy nights. I honestly don’t think I’ll be needing any of my other pairs though, not since slipping my feet into a brand new pair of luxurious Canterbury Sheepskins.
I received my boots, courtesy of Canterbury Leather International Ltd, on Wednesday and it was love at first sight. The second they came out of the box they were unwrapped and on my feet… and that’s pretty much where they have stayed since.
Canterbury Sheepskins are made in New Zealand by Canterbury Leather International Ltd, a company established in 1974. They pride themselves on offering customers the ultimate in comfort, quality and design. Canterbury source premium hides to produce the highest quality hand crafted sheepskin boots and accessories.
Wool is a fibre unmatched in the world because of its unique ability to warm in winter and be cool in summer with the ability to absorb moisture without feeling wet.
Canterbury Sheepskins are made with specially reinforced heel supports and luxurious sheepskin insoles. They pride themselves on combining functionality with comfort which is what saw the development of the ‘The Sheepskin Wellingtons’; a PVC ankle boot with a lambskin insole and a sheepskin shaft offering nice dry feet when squelching in those early morning winter sports with the kids.
The boots that I am currently wearing, and in love with – destined to never be far from my feet – are the AVA, tall fashion boots boasting a genuine sheepskin upper with 15-17mm wool pile. There is an open top to allow folding down to create a wool collar which changes the look quite a lot for those who like to change up their footwear. The AVA also boasts a P.V.C side stitched NZ sole with feminine profile, suede leather heel guard, heat set and shaped heel support, heat keeper on inner sole of boot and a cushioned removable insole.
The AVA is available in sizes 3-9 and either Chestnut or Black.
There is a wide range of boots, slippers and other apparel, all of which can be viewed on the website at: http://shop.canterburyleather.com/

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
