EMU places an emphasis on choosing all-natural, quality materials for its products, including sheepskin, chosen for its thickness and water-resistant qualities, as well as its comfort. Because Australian Merino wool is an all-natural product, it has excellent insulating qualities, but is still breathable, which aides in combating odors and keeping the feet cool and comfortable. EMU states that it chooses the highest quality leather for its products to ensure lasting quality and a luxurious feel. The suede finish adds breathability and durability to the products without taking away from the overall design aesthetic.

The design of the EMUsole combines quality and durability with comfort and support. The special design features a rubber outsole for traction, soft EVA insets for comfort and soft foam inserts for added support.

Some EMU products display the The Woolmark Company symbol. The symbol denotes quality testing by Woolmark, guaranteeing the product is 100 percent wool and that it complies with Woolmark's performance and fiber content standards.
