As much as it would make it easier to buy wool shoes as an octopus, unfortunately I am not one and I’m sorry to report that I have hit a bit of a shoe threshold… I have three pairs of different brands – Allbirds, Giesswein and Baabuks. And a few weeks ago, I got the coolest message on Instagram from another wool lover who is obsessed with her EMU Australia sneakers made from Australian wool!
It has been on the cards to open Wool for Every Day as a platform to share more and it gives me great pleasure to you introduce you to Cassie, owner of THREE pairs of this wonderfully woolly shoe, to pilot our first guest review!

Location: Mallee, South Australia
Involvement/history with wool: My involvement with wool stems from my family farm in the Southern Mallee of SA where we have grazed sheep since we started here in 1981, now part of this business I’m passionate about anything and everything wool can be used for and the multitude of natural and sustainable benefits it holds.
How did you come to find out about Wool For Every Day? I found out about Wool For Every Day from my local District Wool Manager Trevor Smith who also is a wonderful advocate for the amazing fibre ‘wool’.
The Product | EMU Wool Shoes
EMU Australia wool sneakers for women & children are made with 100% Australian Merino Wool. They are lightweight and super comfortable. They are also machine washable. EMU Australia is a privately owned family business, Australian owned.
How and where did you come across it? I came across Emu Wool Sneakers when I was browsing through the Beyond the Bale Magazine, Id looked into other brands of wool sneaker but no others I had found use ‘Australian Wool’ which was really important to me being an Australian Wool Producer and these were also at a really affordable price point.
What was your experience buying it? Buying these was really easy I went into the online store which also had a size guide including instructions on how to best choose my size, I followed the tips given and thankfully the size was perfect! Also super cool for those with kids as they do kids sneakers!!
How long have you now had the product? I’ve had these shoes since September last year, I love the price, the style because I wear them with everything skirts, jeans, shorts and active wear. I have 2 colours fuchsia and grey and I even bought another pair of fuchsia because I wear these everytime I go out (they are very comfortable).
What do you think could be improved? Only improvements I would suggest would be more colours and possibly coloured laces.
Rating out of 7: I give these a 7 out of 7!!
