Inspired by Australia's iconic landscapes, the Emu Women's Heysen Boot blends rugged full-grain leather with rounded edges and soft, sophisticated details. The boot's oiled full-grain leather provides a rich look and feel, while the side-zip makes for a clean silhouette without sacrificing easy on and off. Another cool feature is its stacked heel with high-rebound EVA inserts for maximum shock absorption. Moreover, you'll find the boot's molded foam footbed cradles your foot in complete comfort, while its gum rubber sole grips natural and urban surfaces with its concentric traction pattern.

- Q & A
What's not to love!?
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 9.0
I like everything about this boot. They fit true to size. I am a typically an 9.0 in boots but sometimes and 8.5. The 9 is perfect with winter socks. If you'll go barefoot or with this summer socks, you may want to go down half a size. They have a strong rubber sole, so I don't slip. They also are comfortable. They also look good. So, what's not love!??!
I did get the suede in the mushroom-grey color. Suede is tricky, as it absorbs dirt and grease more than polished leather. And I am bad, and wear these when I cook.
My boots still look good, even though I stained them, so it's not a huge issue. But , I would suggest spraying them with a good sued-waterproof spray to help prevent stains. Its a really great color, so it's worth the effort. I attached a photo. It's just me at work, but should show that they look good, even after a season of almost daily wear.
I highly recommend these boots.
Walk 8-14 miles a day working retail & these keep up. Don't pull on tassel on the zipper or it rips off. Im 8/8.5, but my heels are narrow and rubbed the backs til they were all messed up after a few months of heavy wear, when i got 8.5, but 1 year warranty rocks! I exchanged them for 8 & they're perfect. Insoles are ok, but dr. Scholls hard surface insoles are worth it. Cute & flattering- lotsa compliments.

- Size Bought: 6 and 6.5
I just love the design of these! I agree with Angela, below, the colors are not as shown (the 2 tone) They match each other. Nonetheless they are very nice boots. I would say they fit true to size. I went along with Angela's statement that she went with the lower whole size vs the higher 1/2 size. Unfortunately.....it's MY feet - the toe box is a bit narrow for my tootsies. So, I have ordered a 1/2 size up to see if they give me a bit more room in the toe box. Crossing my fingers and will update when I get them!
I got the 1/2 size larger and they are a bit loose - my big toe is in a spot that tells me they are a bit large, but going smaller squishes my toes too much. I think if I wear the right sock they might be OK. I will also be using orthotics.
EMU Heysen Boots = fashion + function!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 8
SIZE: I generally fit into a size 8 or 8.5 and the size 8 in the EMU Heysen Boots fit great!
COLOR: I purchased the mushroom (lighter of the two above) and the two tone pictured above (tan on top, dark olive/ brown on bottom) is not the case in person - the bottom is much lighter with very little contrast to the top. However, I personally really, and I mean really like the subtle two tone - it matches well to most of my closet, making these boots quite versatile in what I wear them with.
COMFORT: Comfort is the perfect word to describe the feel, all day long.
LOOK: I'm 5'5" with a 32" inseam - in the front, top of these boots rests about 3" above my ankle bone and tapers towards the back resting about a half inch shorter than the front. The cuff is about 3/4 inch distance from my ankle at any point of rotation or angle - meaning when I'm crossing my legs, on the leg resting above the other, my foot angles down and there is a gap between the top of the cuff on the front and my leg, while the back of the cuff lays flat on my achilles tendon.
I have worn them with my full length leggings, skirts short and long, and skinny jeans, and they just look so damn good with everything!!!!
FUNCTION: They keep my feet dry and warm. Arguably though, I recommend getting some weather sealant for them so as to prevent blemishes to the suede and leather.
I highly recommend these - they are amazing to wear and you'll get tons of compliments!!!!
