Emu Stinger Hi WAY Better than Bronte Hi Jan 08, 2010
These shoes are AMAZING, I treat them like they're my first born child. I am going to apologize in advance for my long review, I just want to answer some of the questions that I had when I was ordering them.
1st: These are authentic EMU Stinger boots. Contrary to what another reviewer said they do have a removable insole. I think it just depends on who you are ordering them from. I ordered them directly from Amazon. Free shipping baby!
2nd: Order them in your correct size, if you wear a half size normally, order a size down. This will give you some room to grow as the shoes will stretch to fit your foot.
3rd: The Chocolate is an absolutely glorious color for them.
4th: They are very, very warm. I know the ad suggests the can be worn on a warm day, but I would not suggest it. They are definitely for colder weather.
5th: The EMU Stinger Hi are in a completely different class than the EMU Bronte Hi boots. I got a pair of the Brontes for Christmas that were purchased at a department store. I was not exactly pleased with the quality of the BRONTE shoe. The wool on the inside was very rough and itchy. The shoes were made of leather and looked cheap and worn out. The BRONTES kind of looked like a pair of suede shoes that had gotten wet. However the Stinger Hi were much, much nicer. They were made of genuine sheep skin and the fur on the inside was sooo soft and luxurious. The inside of the Brontes looked like uncombed hair, but the inside of the Stingers matched the color of the boot and was trimmed to fit nicely in the boot without being noticeable. Again, the insole of the Stinger was removable, the Bronte did not have a removable insole.
6th: I understand that some people may be tempted to purchase the Brontes because they seem more economical. But that would not benefit you in the long run. I was very fortunate to purchase a pair of the Stingers off of Amazon for about $70. This was the same price that the Brontes I received for Christmas were at a department store. I told my gift givers to return these sub-par shoes and I ordered the much nicer STINGERS from Amazon. Well worth the 2 week wait to get them after Christmas. So if you don't see a price that you like on Amazon, wait it out, they may go on more of a sale after a couple weeks. Worst case scenario take a couple weeks to save up the extra difference and just get the STINGERS. You will be happy with your choice.
7th: These are much better looking than UGGS. They don't make you look like your feet are boats. The back of them dip in a little on the heel to give you a snug fit. They also have nice arch support which UGGS do not have. You don't feel like you're walking around in house slippers when you wear them. At full price they cost $40 less than a similar style of UGG and they are much nicer shoes. Definitely makes me feel like a bank robber since I got mine for less than half the price of a pair of UGGS.
HOORAY FOR EMU STINGER HI BOOTS. They ROCK!

The only Emu boot style you should buy! Jul 11, 2008
I love these- the quality of these boots are superb. I have a few pairs of Uggs and Emus- they are all my favorite (depending on the day), but I absolutely love these boots. I have them in black, and didn't find the dye transfer on my feet an issue.
I am a size 8.5, and find the 8 fitting just right. There is a bit of arch and heel support that Ugg Classics lack.
If choosing between these and the Emu Bronte Hi, forget the Brontes and buy these instead. You definitely pay for the quality and it is worth it! I buy my 4 year old the Brontes, and splurge on the good ones for myself!
Very comfy, practical, sexy, and chic! I love my boots!

Beautiful boot but sizing wrong Dec 02, 2010
By Connie S. Krulik
After much comparing, I decided to buy this boot as it looked comfortable. I followed the instructions and bought the size down for between sizes. Unfortunately, the boot was way too tight on my toes, I actually need the size larger. Since a return for wrong size is not considered "Amazon's fault" I have to pay return shipping even though I followed their instructions for sizing. Not my fault either! There should be more details on sizing this boot. I have ordered the larger size and will make another review later.
12/23/10 - now that I have received the larger size, I have upped my rating. The boot in the correct size is very comfortable and warm.

Fabulous Boots Dec 09, 2010
By C. Nicholson
These are actually my second pair of Emu Stinger boots. I purchased the Chestnut last year and loved them so much, I just got a new pair in black. Emu makes a great quality product, as good as UGG in my opinion but you are able to find Emu's at a much better price...especially on Amazon.com. The same boot was $179 at Macy's, I got mine for $76 during the Black Friday Sale. The Stinger is made of genuine Australian Sheepskin just like the Uggs, but at a fraction of the cost. Keep in mind, not all Emu's are sheepskin, some have Merino wool lining (The Bronte), so pay close attention to the description of the style you are looking at.
I highly recommend these boots if you are looking for a sheepskin style. Also, they are pretty true to size. I usually wear a 7-7 1/2, I ordered both pairs in a 7 and they fit perfectly.

so fabulous Oct 17, 2008
By Katie M. Gonzalez
I just bought these boots and they are on my feet right now as Im writing this review. I thought they were so amazing as far as quality and the comfort is also super. I also have worn Uggs which are really good, but I am surprised to find that I like these better as far as comfort. A great BUY!!!!!
