Sheepskin on the Game of Thrones

Jon Snow Was Wearing Sheepskin Boots When He Came Back to Life on GOT

If you’re not caught up on Game of Thrones, read no further, because there will definitely be some spoilers in this post!

We all know by now that, in the second episode of season six for the incredibly popular HBO series Game of Thrones, which aired on May 1, one of the main characters, Jon Snow, played by British actor Kit Harington, was brought back to life after being stabbed to death by his brothers in black at the Wall. What many of you don’t know though, is that Kit Harington was actually wearing a pair of sheepskin boots while filming the shocking resurrection scene!

For those of you who are die-hard fans, we know it’s sometimes hard to remember that Game of Thrones is just a show and not real life, so when a behind-the-scenes video cropped up online of the cast and crew filming Jon Snow’s resurrection scene, one of the biggest reveals in television history, it came as a bit of a surprise to see that the former Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch was brought back to life while wearing not his signature black “crow” gear, but rather a pair of gray sweat shorts and brown sheepskin boots.

We can’t blame Kit Harington for wanting to stay cozy and warm in sheepskin boots while being brought back to life at the Wall, where it seems to be freezing cold and miserable pretty much every single day, especially now that summer is over and winter is expected to last for the foreseeable future. When they are made from genuine shearling, like ours are, with cozy wool on the inside and durable suede on the outside, sheepskin boots cradle your feet in comfort and offer exactly the protections you need in any type of weather.

Originally made popular by surfers in the 1960s who couldn’t wait to slip into the luxurious footwear after a long surf session, the Ugg-style of boot has become even more popular in recent years, and can now be found in nearly every household in the United States. From teenage girls to grown men and fashionable moms, sheepskin boots are loved by all, and for good reason. From winter to spring to summer to fall, authentic shearling boots will be right there with you, easily slipped on to run some quick errands in town or for a romantic date night with the hubby.
