If you are looking for the perfect warm, comfortable sheep's wool boot then we have just the thing for you!
We stumbled upon Carbon South Africa a few weeks ago and were blown away by the look, design and affordability of this South African product. Everyone knows there are quite a few options of sheepskin boots on the market, mostly overpriced because of brand and not always of a top class quality or even comfortable to wear.
As we are always supportive of anything homegrown, we jumped at the chance to experience this brand and boy were we impressed.
Gavin , the man behind the brand had this to say - "Carbon South Africa was born about 6 years ago in Cape Town, We saw a gap in the market when we could not find any really good quality sheep wool boots, Nobody seems to be interested in simply making good quality sheep wool boots, They either use synthetic materials or use the thinnest types to skimp on costs & then in some cases to cut costs even more they outsource labour from China. Because the local manufacturing footwear industry in South Africa suffers dearly from the attractive labour costs coming out of China we struggled at the beginning to setup a reliable manufacturing system,
Its expensive to manufacture locally but, if you can figure this out you've solved most of your problems."
Enter Carbon South Africa sheepskin boots!
The Carbon South Africa Mystique sheepskin boot is available in dark brown, camel and black and each pair of boots is handmade by South Africans using only South African raw materials, including locally sourced sheep's wool and thick natural suede which makes the boots wearable and adaptive to all seasons.
My Carbon South Africa boots have already served me so well, as a radio presenter on a breakfast show with early mornings and outside broadcasts in all weather, they are my go-to choice of footwear. One can even purchase a suede water repellant through Carbon South Africa's website to ensure that they are long lasting and look good for years to come. What also stands out for me in this particular boot is the reinforced heel that holds one's foot adding extra comfort and preventing sagging as is so often the case in other sheep's wool boots on the market.
