Black Sheep Australia. Est 1975.

The Healthcare Range is the solution for those looking for easy access shoes made using Australian Medical-Grade Sheepskin. 

Each pair is made using dense, curly "Spring-like" wool which significantly helps to relieve pressure on the wearer's foot, providing support and all day comfort. 

With the benefit of genuine Australian Sheepskin, your feet will be able to maintain warmth, breathe well and stay dry.

All Black Sheep Healthcare range boots are fitted with a flexible, non-slip rubber sole which is suitable for both indoors and outdoor use.

The innersoles are removable and can be replaced with orthotics, or otherwise can be replaced with new sheepskin innersoles later on. 

Size Guide: Please note this particular style fits 1 size small, please choose 1 size up from your usual size.

For swollen feet, or those requiring less pressure on the feet, some customers have bought 2 sizes up. The large velcro strap over the foot allows for an adjustable snug fit.

Promotion: this range comes with a free extra pair of sheepskin innersoles valued at $25.

Great but sizes stop at 12

The quality was excellent as was the opening so that Dad’s foot could be placed in slipper. Sizes can be wide but not wide enough for his problem feet and only go to a 12 so I couldn’t order any larger (it does say order larger than your normal size though) dad used to be a 10 or 11 however his feet are so swollen from medical condition he cannot wear normal shoes, slippers or even socks. It’s very sad for him as he wants to feel “dressed up” even though he’s 93 years old. I will keep hunting for shoes for him. I have yet to return slippers.

Thanks for your detailed review Ma.
At the moment, we've only got up to size 12 as we're limited to the available sole sizing.
We've recently been able to secure up to a size 14 sole and have made some small changes to lengthen the velcro strap based on customer feedback.
We're hoping to have these available for sale in 2 or so months time.

Thank you

I really appreciated your very prompt delivery of my order. I had to reluctantly return my boots, as they were one size too small. To my delight and amazement within a few days the boots, one size larger were delivered to me. Thank you.

Had to return. Mum being an amputee and 93 didn’t feel safe when transferring from wheel chair to other apparatus. Far too much movement for her remaining foot to feel secure - Particularly around the ball area of the foot.
Even tried smaller sizes to try and B overcome the problem but without success.
Back to the drawing board looking for the type she currently has that is worn out.
However did use store credit to purchase other items.

Thank You for sourcing the medical sheepskin boot which is beautifully designed and made. I have researched and bought a variety of shoes/slippers from Australia and the US and UK but so far this Black Sheep is the best for my husband who has severe oedema/swollen feet. PLEASE keep designing for this medical market which will continue to grow, PS The spare innersoles a great marketing ploy and the gummy bears made me smile and want to write this review.
