Good question! All our Stingers are hand crafted from Australian sheepskin and are water resistant. The difference is that the Platinum collection is an Australian made boot, made in our Geelong factory in Australia. So if you want Australian made then look for the word Platinum, it's the one for you.

Your EMU sheepskin boots will naturally stretch with wear. Being a natural product, the sheepskin will give a little, so when you make your purchase the boots need to fit snug, but still be comfortable. If you are unsure of your size, check our size guide.

Some of our fashion boots won't stretch as much as our sheepskin boots, so be sure to pick a size that you're ready to wear today. when purchasing from this range.
