Ausiie Boots Australia
Have you ever found sheepskin boots, well, kind of boring? Melissa Armstrong did, too, and that's why she founded Ausiie Boots Australia. Combining her Australian upbringing with the fashion fabulousness of Los Angeles, Ausiie boots are never boring. Ausiie Boots Australia's fur, buckles, ties, and gold plating introduce glamour to sheepskin footwear.
Ausiie Boots Australia's style was made for the fashionably adventurous. Their popular Furgy III boot features edgy rustic leather belts and is trimmed with the finest Australian and Spanish Toscana wool. For taller women or those who just want more coverage, try the Furgy III XT. This boot is a full half-foot taller than typical "tall" sheepskin boots!
The Tootsie is another boot that's tall on glamour and height. This extra tall boot sports gold-plated studs and curly long-haired sheepskin fur. Other boots feature exposed shearling seams, braids, crystals, faux snake skin and more.
Slippers and more
Ausiie Boots Australia founder Melissa Armstrong was born with fashion in her blood. The daughter of the proprietors of a women's boutique located on Australia's Gold Coast, Melissa had already experienced multiple store openings, merchandise buying and business acquisitions by the time she was 18. Perhaps it was inevitable that she would one day become a fashion entrepreneur herself.
In 1994, Melissa went on an adventure in the United States which introduced her to one of the world's largest shoe industries. Over the next none years, she built relationships with major US shoe and accessory vendors and started the first private shoe label for her parents' company, Glamour Plus Fashion.
Ausiie Boots Australia rose out of a difficult time in Melissa's life. When her father passed away suddenly, she was eight months pregnant with her third child. In order to cope, Melissa tried to focus on keeping busy. She decided to design her own line of women's shoes. Competition in the footwear industry is intense, however, so Melissa knew she had to find a way to distinguish herself.
Aware of the wildly popular sheepskin boot trend, Melissa reached back to her true blue Aussie roots to discover her mission: to make Australia's heritage "uggly" boots glamorous! She launched Ausiie Boots Australia in August 2008. "Our company continues to grow each day, and we are always looking to do what others won't do," she says.
