I feel I must recommend a New Zealand site (https://www.Kiwi-sheepskins.com) that my daughter has just received some sheepskin boots from. Ordered on the first of November, invoiced on the 2nd, and arrived on today the 9th November.
The boots are really nice, and look like a very well known Ozzie brand, but half the price.
They even answered emails on a Sunday.
Total cost for pair of boots, pair of sheepskin insoles, pair of sheepskin slipper socks, cleaner & protection spray, and postage & packing for £98. Unbelievably good value. - just think they deserve a recommendation.

They now do boots for wider calves

  • They look very warm! Also noticed they do a personalized order so if you know someone with size 12 feet who wants stuff pink, as I do, it can be done. The variant that I tried for came to £62. Kiddies come up at approx £25. I may get some of these; still considering. Thanks.

    They are really soft and luxurious. I think I will end up getting a pair of the slipper socks for myself, tried my daughters on and they were sooooo soft. Suede soles, so are none slip. It says they can be hand washed as well.
  • They don'y pay your tax though..! I presume your daughter didn't get caught..? Do you know how much she would have been liable? I am tempted by something so cosy and warm but am I do already have boots so I want to be sure if tax becomes involved that I can justify the expence.

    I know this is an old thread, but Kiwi now pay all UK charges - just ordered a pair of boots. My slippers bit the dust late last year, but my daughter who bought a pair of boots, is still wearing her them
