A Long Australian Tradition
Few things in life are better than slipping your feet into a pair of warm boots before heading out the door. A pair of durable, comfortable boots can make all the difference between a walk across town and a real adventure. Of course, the most comfortable boots available are sheepskin: sheepskin offers so many benefits that other fibers and leathers simply cannot match.
Real sheepskin boots differ from most other boots in that there’s no glue or adhesives involved in attaching the wool; rather, each boot is made from the natural skin of the sheep, with carefully brushed and woven wool on the inside and durable leather on the exterior. Sheepskin fibers are hollow and breathable, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Further, the hollow fibers wick moisture away from the body and each fiber can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling wet!
This all-natural resource produces a phenomenal boot as comfortable as a pair of slippers, but is still durable and rugged enough to be worn outside in the coldest weather. Sheepskin is flame-resistant, wind-proof, and even can act as a natural moisturizer. The naturally-occurring lanolins within sheepskin has been shown to moisturize your skin as you wear it.
The GLA® Difference
Our brand of sheepskin boots–GLA®–is the result of decades of use and wear across the country. Just as the American Wild West became known for its leather cowboy boot, so Australia’s shearers and eventually surfers became known by their sheepskin boots, made from the prized Merino sheep. Australian wool has always been of renowned quality and the Merino sheep wool provides the greatest material for footwear: a plush wool interior with a strong, supple leather on the outside. Further, our boots feature several World’s’ firsts like strong arch support, complete with a memory foam insole and a gel heel, ensuring that your feet enjoy amazing comfort, no matter how long you’ve been on them!
What’s more, the Merino sheepskin is particularly easy to care for; a pair of GLA® boots will last for years, with minimal care on your part. Our boots can be hand-washed with sheepskin shampoo, while the interior removable fleece can be removed from the boots themselves for easier washing and care. With minimal effort, you could easily wear a single pair of these boots for years.
