I had been wanting a pair of Uggs for quite some time, and in particular the chestnut Bailey Button variety, so last year when ASOS had a 25% off day I ordered my coveted pair. These Uggs come up a few inches above the ankle and are made of thick sheepskin. They have a solid, supportive heel and thick rubber soles with the Ugg logo + attractive pattern etched into them. The sides are slit and held together with a wooden button toggle type fastening. They can be worn either upright or with the top folded down, so that the cream sheepskin interior is shown. I find that my pair tend to flap a little from the top, but they still look good. Because the insides are made of soft sheepskin, these boots are wonderfully warm and so comfortable to wear. The Bailey Button variety will also fit larger ladies - so many boots these days seem to have been designed for slimmer women. I have worn mine with jeans, leggings, skirts and thick tights and even yoga pants to the gym - they are just easy to grab and sling on. The Australian surfers used to wear them as indoor footwear when they were first introduced, but they are too nice to keep indoors. Like many others I had bought the cheaper £20 variety from stores such as New Look, and they had a job to last through the winter. My daughters then asked for a pair of the 'real thing' for Christmas a couple years ago so I bought them each a pair from a slightly dodgy Chinese site on the internet( I didnt know it was Chinese at the time, but I got constant junk emails in Chinese characters for a year or more after). These appeared to be the same as the genuine Uggs, they had the material logo on the heels and even the same patterned soles. They were also made of the same type of sheepskin and were wonderfully warm and soft to wear - infact it was their constant ravings about how wonderful they were that made me want my own. Now, two or three years on, their rubber heels are very worn and some of the stitching has come undone, whereas my pair show hardly any signs of wear, despite the fact that I am very heavy on my footwear and regularly get through a couple of pairs of boots a year. I cant rate these boots highly enough and now that I have lost a good deal of weight I am saving up for a pair of the black regular short boots that would have previously had a job to fit my chubby legs. As Christmas approaches there are plenty of shops/internet sites offering 25% off on specific days, so you can take advantage of those offers. One last piece of advice I would give is that if you are ordering on line, try them on in the shops first so that you know which size will fit best - they recommend you buy a size smaller than your normal size. I didnt and they werent over loose.
Well, I'm living abroad again so I'm back to living with whatever I could fit in my suitcase. I am living in Bavaria, not the back of beyond, so of course I can buy things while I'm here, but there was a major limit on the amount of things that I could bring with me from back home. As it's still summer in Germany, I didn't see much point in bringing bulky winter stuff, especially as I'd be able to get a coat and things here once it got cold enough to need one. This meant that I unfortunately was not able to bring my beloved Ugg boots with me as they would certainly take up too much space and I wouldn't have need for them until November at the earliest. This review will therefore be based on what I remember of my first pair of Uggs, which, as I've had them for about three years, is quite a lot. == Ugg Boots == Ugg boots are sheepskin boots with warm fur on the inside to keep your feet warm in the winter, as well as having been in fashion for a few years, particularly a couple of years back. I have to say that I wasn't a fan of Ugg boots for quite a few years after they came out. I did think they were ugly but, looking back, this is mainly due to how people wore them as opposed to them themselves. When everyone had a pair of long or short tan boots, they were all very samey and seeing a dark pair was a novelty. It wasn't long, however, before their popularity grew more and they brought out different designs, and now they have a massive variety of shoes you can buy. As well as the traditional boots, they now also do flip flops, earmuffs and other accessories. == Ugg Bailey Button == It was this particular lovely pair of boots that finally convinced me to get a pair of Ugg boots. I had started to fancy them more and more once more interesting designs and colours were becoming available and loved these bailey button boots almost at first sight. This design, as you can see in the photo, has a button on the side which, as well as looking nice, is there because the front of the boot is not attached to the back on the outer side, and you use the button to tie them together. This is very handy when you, for example, want to wear jeans tucked into your Uggs, as you can undo the button to open the boot up and give you more space to get your foot and your jeans in, and then fasten the button back up again. I used to like wearing jeans with these Uggs, especially when it was cold, so this was a very handy aspect. This wasn't something you could do with the original Ugg boot designs, one of which I subsequently bought, and so I rarely wore jeans with this second pair. Unless you wear skinny jeans it's hard to get the bottom to fit in well by putting your foot in normally, but I could even get my boot cut jeans to sit comfortably in my bailey buttons. This style of Ugg was available in a few different colours when I went to buy them, including the traditional light and dark tan colours and brown, but it was the black pair that I liked the most. I was very tempted by the grey pair, but thought that they would go dirty or tatty more easily, and thought that the black pair was a safer bet. The sheepskin on the inside is also black and you can see this slightly over the top, unlike with the traditional colours, which have white sheepskin inside. They are now, however, available in a wide variety of colours, including blue, green and plum, so if you want a pair that's a bit louder and more noticeable, then there a few for you to choose from. == What I Thought == I loved these boots so much that I wore them almost constantly all winter. The feeling when you first put your foot in a new pair is almost orgasmic: the inside of the boot is so soft and warm and comfortable that I wish I could get a full-body Ugg suit and live in it. They're comfortable to walk in, though they did initially rub the backs of my ankles when I first wore them without socks. They suggest that you wear them without socks to get the full benefit, but I do find that this makes them susceptible to wear more quickly. Considering how much I did wear them over that first winter and then subsequently, I did quite well with my first pair of Uggs. They did start to scuff after a few months but, considering that I wore them near daily including through snow, rain and all other weather conditions, this isn't too bad. I did have the Ugg protection kit but I have to say that I wasn't the best at using it, and had I cleaned my boots more often, then they would have stayed in good condition for a lot longer. That isn't to say that they aren't still wearable, as they are, but they don't look as nice as they used to. The main problem is that the sheepskin inside matts and can become comfortable, but if you wore socks and didn't sweat too much inside them, then this is less likely to happen. Despite them not being in as good condition now as when I first got them, I still love them and still wore them occasionally last winter alongside my second pair. They go well with jeans, leggings and tights or even bare legs if you dress casually enough, but I would never recommend wearing them with a non-casual outfit. I often wore them with leggings and short, dark denim shorts and a t-shirt and found this to be a comfortable yet attractive outfit. == Conclusion == I love my Bailey Button Uggs and would definitely consider buying a second pair in another colour for this winter. They do also now have a shorter pair that only go up to just above your ankles (compared to mine which are a few inches higher up the leg than that), and I would be tempted to give these a try for a change. Now, what you've all been waiting for: the price. Yes, Uggs are expensive. Yes, there are other sheepskin boot brands that are cheaper. No, I don't care. Uggs are lovely and while I wouldn't entirely rule out trying another brand like 'Just Sheepskin', I find that Ugg boots have the nicest designs and since I've had a good experience with them, I'm very happy to stick with this brand. According to the Ugg UK website, Bailey Button boots currently cost £175, which is roughly the same price as I paid for them nearly three years ago. However, on the US site, they are selling for only $165, which is just over £100! Unfortunately, they don't ship to the UK from the US site (and they would charge $50 delivery even if they did), but if you have friends or family in the United States or go over for a holiday at any point, you could pick up a pair for considerably cheaper. To conclude, these Ugg boots are lovely and I highly recommend them. Just remember to look after them and don't expect them to last perfectly forever.
---Intro--- Back in the days when my ex and I were together and I had money I used to dream about owning a pair of Ugg boots. I'm not sure why as I didn't have any friends with a pair - I'd probably read a review about them! Although I wanted many different pairs, it was the Black Bailey Button ones which I knew I must have after spending countless hours poring over the different ones online! I ordered them for Christmas 2009, and they cost £160 (I bought them online from Cloggs). I was slightly surprised that my ex agreed to me spending so much on a pair of boots, but since he effectively ended the marriage two days later, in retrospect it wasn't surprising. I was left with my beautiful Ugg boots, but a broken heart. Just over two and a half years later my broken heart is mended and I still have my beautiful Ugg boots (and also a pair of the grey Classic Cardy ones too) - I win! ---Ugg Australia--- More about the Ugg brand including history can be found on the official website (this link is for the UK version of the site) - www.uggaustralia.co.uk I see little need in regurgitating such facts. Although might be worth pointing out that genuine Ugg boots are made in China. ---Wearing my Uggs whatever the weather--- Initially I mostly wore my Ugg boots inside the house - I didn't want to get them dirty! Although I have waterproofed my Ugg boots (I didn't use the Ugg branded product as this was expensive, and I was willing to take the risk with something I bought from Clarks), I don't tend to wear them when it is raining very heavily, or if there are a lot of puddles around. However, I'm happy to wear them out and about in the usual Cumbrian rain and they have never let me down. Some have said that Ugg boots are far too hot to wear in the summer. However, living in Cumbria, we don't seem to get much of a summer. That said though, I've worn them when it's fairly warm, and I'd say that on days like that the Ugg boots keep my feet cool - I know, that sounds a bit strange. Some say that you're not meant to wear socks with Ugg boots. I generally do, as I would imagine that otherwise after a lot of wear, they would start to smell (not that my feet smell particularly!) However, on the occasions I do wear them without socks, they feel so lovely on my feet, and they haven't caused them to sweat (although I do end up with black bits between my toes). I suppose my main reason for wearing socks is that when I take them off (I always take off shoes when entering a house) I'd be left with bare feet - and in the winter they'd be very cold, and I'd end up having to borrow socks from people. ---What to wear the Bailey Button Uggs with--- The Bailey Button Uggs are calf-height with a slit down the side, and a distinctive wooden button with Ugg written four times round the button. They are made from twin-face sheepskin. In my opinion they look beautiful! Initially I mostly wore my Ugg boots with leggings and a skirt or dress (I went through a very 'girly' phase when my marriage ended) - in fact I was wearing them when I met my boyfriend for our first date, I wanted to feel comfortable rather than dressing to impress. Now, I usually wear them over the top of skinny jeans. The other day I'd worn them round to my boyfriend's with my pink jeans. The next day coming home I was wearing jogging bottoms, and had to put on my Uggs as didn't want to wear my trainers (as they're the pair of trainers that live at his house), and although I only walked from the car to my house (a couple of metres) and no one saw me, I still felt that I looked like a complete tit. Ugg boots do not go with jogging bottoms (in my opinion) - this is what trainers are for! Although these are short boots, if you so desire, you can fold the top over covering the button, and have the fur showing. I have to say that I've never tried this 'look', but it does make them even more versatile. ---Wear and tear--- The soles of my Ugg boots have worn down slightly, but not a great deal. A few years ago when Ugg boots were REALLY fashionable, I used to see countless people wearing imitation Uggs, and you could see the wear on the soles and it made them walk strangely as a result! Being black, my Uggs don't show up the dirt particularly, but should I get them dirty, I just wipe them down with a damp cloth. After well over two years and a lot of use, they are in very good condition. ---Other important information--- Sizing is an issue with Ugg boots, as they come in half sizes. My feet are a size 6, but verging on the small size of a 6, so I went for a UK size 5 (which has the size 5.5 on the box) which corresponds to a USA size 7 (my Ugg boots say W7 on the label inside). They say to get Ugg boots in a size smaller than your usual shoes as they mould to fit your feet - they should be snug but comfy. Different online retailers give different size guides, depending on whether you are ordering it based on a UK size or USA size. If in any doubt then contact the retailer first before purchasing. However, although I didn't do this myself, if you are planning on buying online, I would definitely suggest trying on a pair of Uggs in a 'real-life' shoe shop before ordering. While I wanted to give a definitive answer about Ugg sizing in this review (and I've probably just confused you all), so please don't take my word for it, speak with the retailer! ---Are they worth it?--- In my current financial state there is absolutely no way that I could afford such an extravagance. However, I would say that they are excellent value, and they do last. Having them in black means that they will go with pretty much anything . They're definitely not the sort of thing I'd have worn when I was younger as back then I wouldn't leave the house without at least 5 inch heels. However, with age I have found that comfort is the priority, and in addition to this they slip on and off pretty easily. I have to admit that I do like the fact that I'm wearing the 'real-deal', and although I'm not generally bothered about designer labels in the slightest, I am very partial to the Ugg brand. This is definitely one brand where the cheap imitations (in my humble opinion) don't even come close. Actually I'm glad that the Ugg craze died down, as now I can wear my Ugg boots with pride, and not be seen as a (no doubt failing) fashion victim! You're unlikely to pick up a pair of new Bailey Button Ugg boots for less than £160 (I thought I'd found them cheaper, but it turned out I was looking at the children's version) - there are cheaper Ugg boots out there, and I will shortly be reviewing my Classic Cardy Uggs. However, these are certainly my favourite, and I'm so glad I got them when I could afford them! If you see Ugg boots advertised for a lot less than their rrp, then they are likely to be fake - if you want the 'real-deal' and the quality you can trust, then make sure you buy/order from a reputable retailer.
I received a pair of bailey button uggs for Christmas this year and to say I was over the moon was an understatement, I was down right chuffed. I had wanted a pair of uggs for a long time but they are so expensive that I never thought id end up with a pair. Each year id get some rocket dog boots and although they were great they just weren't as good as the uggs I really wanted. I got the boots in the chestnut colour which is indeed the colour I would have chosen if I was purchasing them myself. The bailey button uggs have a wooden ugg printed button to the side which is fastened with elastic. You can wear the boots with the button showing or tuck the boots over to hide the button and show off the fur from the inside. Personally I like mine tucked under with the fur showing. The sheepskin fur and insole are gorgeous for the cold weather as it really feelis like having a big duvet on your feet. They are always lovely and toasty and it feels comfortable with thanks to the soft sole. You really feel like you could be wearing a pair of snug cosy slippers. I have worn my uggs a lot and they have became my favourite shoe, however if you try and wear them in slightly warmer weather the results are entirely different. With our weather it can be cold in the morning so I put on my uggs and by afternoon the sun is blazing and my feet feel like they are about to set on fire which is very uncomfortable. If the weather is gona be on the warmish side then leave the uggs at home. I didn't know much about uggs when I got them and one day I was out in the cold weather and it began to rain very heavy and my uggs got soaked and yes I have been left with darker coloured marks all over them from the rain. Gutted. I have been advised to purchase a cleaner and care pack from the ugg website which should fix the issue and when I have tried it I will review it. I honestly didn't think that the rain would mark the boots so badly and at the minute they look terrible. I love my uggs but for the price, you cant wear them in snow, rain stains them and they are no good when the temperate is barely warm so in other words for 175.00 you can only wear then on dry freezing days. Even with the negitives, I still love mine, they are very well made and I would recommend a purchase of them as long as you buy and use the care packs too.
A couple of years ago when Uggs really started to come into fashion I bought the cheap Primark version which were about a tenner but would only last a month if I was lucky. After getting through quite a few pairs I decided that my money would be better spent if I just bough one, decent pair of Uggs that would last me. I had a look around online and found that the style I wanted was the Bailey Button Uggs. Being wary of buying a fake pair I opted to buy them from Schuh and they set me back about £160 which is obviously a lot but after hearing good things I knew it would be worth it. Bailey Button's come in a couple of different colour options including the classic tan and brown, the colour I opted for though was the grey which also has grey sheepskin on the inside. As you can see from the picture above Bailey Button Uggs follow the basic design of usual Uggs however about a third of the way up the side the boot splits and there is a button and an elastic clasp which holds the side of the boot together. At the top the boot tends to turn over a little bit to reveal the sheepskin from inside. The boots can also be turned over, however I think this looks best with the tan boots as the sheepskin inside is cream coloured which contrasts nicely. Whilst wearing the boots they're amazingly comfortable, and to get the full affect of the sheepskin Ugg recommends the boots are worn without socks. The sheepskin inside feels lovely and soft against the skin and I've found it keeps my feet at just the right temperature. They're nice and warm in winter but are also kept pretty cool during the summer months. The Uggs are brilliant in all types of weather as well, although they do need weather proofing as they're suede before wearing but this is just a case of buying the kit and following the instructions. I've found my Uggs to be good during rain, snow, anything like that my feet don't get wet at all. Also in ice I don't find I slip very much in my Uggs and they seem to have pretty good grip. The real, more expensive Uggs are definitely worth the money, although I did begrudge paying out for them initially I'm so glad I did as after 18 months of use my Uggs are still in good condition. They're so comfy and last really well, mine are just starting to wear now and I think I will probably buy a new pair for over the winter months. The quality of these boots is brilliant and really can't be beaten for comfortable footwear no matter what the weather.
When Uggs first started to become popular I was very sceptical and couldn't understand why anyone in their right mind would pay so much money for boots that, in my opinion, didn't look that special or even nice. I have always loved fashion, but this new trend I just didn't subscribe to. My, did I change my mind! It took a trip to a very cold and snowy New York, and my bag being lost which had my boots in, to make me find out for myself the wonders of Uggs. Seeing as there was a shoe shop a few doors down from our hotel, (and the shoes and boots were very nice) we spent a fair amount of time and money there. I eventually tried on the black tall classics and was converted. So the short Bailey Button boots are now my third pair. The style comes in different colours and even textures. I have the brown stingray style which is a bit different from the traditional Ugg appearance. The stingray has a coating on it which gives it a slightly scaly appearance and is a bit shiny. I know that doesn't really sound all that nice, but they do look great. I like them especially as you don't see that many around, in comparison to the more traditional and popular styles. Everything else about them though is typical Ugg quality. If however you are new to the whole Ugg thing I will explain. Firstly the soles are great. Made of a strong rubber they are none slip. The tread is also very deep and shows the Ugg logo. So the couple of times I have worn them in the ice and snow, I have felt a lot more steady than in other boots. For everyday use though, they are really comfortable. I find the short ones are great for shopping centres when a big day of retail therapy is on the cards. The soles are not slippy at all on those shiny floors, your feet are well supported and feel as though you are just walking on carpet rather than hard floors, and the short boots mean you don't get too hot. The inside is lined with sheepskin, which especially in winter is wonderful. I am not very fond of socks and have found I can go out in freezing temperatures with no socks on but with my Uggs, my feet are still nice and toasty, and don't get cold. I have found that all my Uggs fit my feet really well, and because they are so soft, they are the only footwear I have owned that I have worn without first getting blisters. Because of the shape of the toe, they are roomy at the front and toes can be wiggled easily. But what about the price? Are we just paying for the name? Possibly. However I have tried on 'Fuggs' (boots in the style of Uggs but not the real thing) and they just don't compare. I have found them either too soft and not sturdy, feeling more like slippers, or the other extreme being too firm and rigid and have given me blisters. For me personally, the comfort of my feet is the most important thing, and although the price does seem very high for a pair of ankle boots, I would say it is defintiely worth it. Also the fact that Uggs are really trendy is just another advantage for me, but not my sole reason for buying.
I wasnt a first a fan of Ugg. I thought they were overpirced boots. And used to purchase a Ugg style boot from primark for about a fiver. Then last christmas I was bought a pair of the bailey button one and thought well I will give them a try but didnt think they would be any different from the other versions I had. How wrong was I? Very. They are the best boots I have ever owed. I love winter so I can wear them and the only reason I dont wear them in the summer is cause I love getting my toes out in sandles. However in the winter these are the best boots ever. I wear them with everything, skinny jeans, leggings, skirts. I dont think I have found an outfit that they dont go with. They are so comfy its like walking on a cloud. They also keep my feet toasty warm. I wear just a normal pair of socks, were in other cheaper versions I had to wear a pair of thick winter socks. These Ugg boots also kept my feet dry. The only downside I have is the price tag attached to them. I was lucky enough to recieve them as a gift but I would not go out and pay £200 on a pair of boots no matter how nice they are.
I have smelly sweaty feet. It's a bit embarrassing, especially when you're taking your shoes off in a new boyfriends house. Slippers and pumps get thrown out frequently. I have tried the foot deodoriser and the fragrant shoe spray, but alas nothing takes the pong away. Until I bought my Uggs. When the lady in the store said 'yeah you're best wearing these without socks because the real sheepskin is very absorbant' I was like 'yeah right, you wouldn't be saying that if you'd smelled my feet!' But seriously, iv been wearing them sockless for 2 months now and they are completely odour free. I will definitely be investing in a pair of ugg slippers next. I say invest because they will last for years. The sizing is a bit different from uk sizing. I'm a size 7 so they advise getting a 6.5. They stretch a bit when the sheepskin compacts. And they are so cosy! They aren't waterproof, but just don't wear them in the rain!
I recently treated myself to a pair of these. I had wanted these for a while but swithered over them as they are so expensive, but I tended up getting £200 of vouchers from my work due to the amount of Overtime I work (as well as getting paid for the Overtime as well. I often get an incentive like this, but always put it into something sensible, but I decided to be selfish and spend it on my for a change. There was 1 shop that sold the Uggs that I could use the Vouchers in so I went in and bought them - yea. These cost me £195 - yes, I know really expensive, but I got them for "free" in a way, and I finally had something I wanted for so long. I tried them on and they fit so comfortably. The 1 thing I was advised in the shop is that when you try them on then they are meant to feel quite snug against your feet so don't worry if they feel a bit tight to start off with. The Sheepskin inside the boots is pretty padded to start off with, but when you wear these and walk about in them then the Sheekskin will settle and therefore they won't be so tight on your feet. I am a normal sized 7 and the Boots tend to me measured in half sizes so I got a 7.5. They fit perfectly on my feet. You are recommended to not wear socks with these, and at first I did wear socks as I thought they the Boots would end up smelly, but you don't get the full cosiness of the Sheepskin fur and also I am pleased to report that my Boots don't smell at all. These boots look just like the picture. I chose the black pair as I felt they would be easier to keep clean and I just prefer the black boots in general. Although you don't really see the black button standing out against the black boot you can make it out a little. On the Button there is the word Ugg going around the button a few times. Inside these boots it is completely lined with Sheepskin Fur so these are nice and comfy. At the toes it's like the Sheepskin overlaps a bit so it goes over and under your foot. These are very cosy and comfy. The sole of these looks quite durable and although the sole is flat with bits cut out of it so no ridges they seem to grip easy enough - but i've not had a chance to test these in the Snow. These are easy to clean, just wipe down with a damp cloth. I feel that these will last a long time. You get a years guarantee from Ugg against any material defects. There is lots of fake Uggs on the market and I would say that these don't go on offer much, so you will probably pay anything up from £170 for this style of Uggs. Anything cheaper and it may be a fake. The fake websites are clever and I went onto one of them which were offering a limited sale and these ones were £110. When I finally found the small print they stated they weren't made by the Ugg brand, but made from the same material. There has been many bad reports of the fake brands, so I think if you are wanting the right Ugg experience and get the nice snugg feeling then I would rather spend a little more on them instead paying over the odds for some fakes. Within the Genuine Uggs there is a little Hologram strip on the label inside the Boot, and when you move it from side to side then you will see the Ugg name appearing and a little Sun. Also on the box there is a sun shape, but from what I understand the boxes have changed over time. The current boxes have the sun shape on it. A great pair of Boots, and these will surely keep my feet cosy in the cold Scottish weather.
I have just dug my ugg boots out of my cupboard and wore them for the first time this winter today! I bought them last year from Office (I think) and they were about £160. I have had Ugg, Emu and the cheap primark snowboots before. Unlike the cheap copies, Ugg boots are made of real sheep skin which is really snuggly to wear in winter. They are so warm that it gives the feeling of leaving your toes at home snuggled up in bed whilst you're braving the elements! These boots come about 3/4 up my shin, I'm 164 cm tall so would differ according to height. The button at the side makes them a bit more interesting that the standard Uggs and is easier to tuck jeans into as it can be opened up wider when you put them on. The sole is probably a bit thicker than the fakes, but mine have worn down which is a disappointment considering the price. I have Emu boots too which have a thick layer of plastic under the foam which makes them last longer. My Emu's were about £130 too so a more attractive price. for this reason, I will stick to Emu's next time I need to buy snow boots.
I have these UGG Boots but in the grey colour. I used to buy those cheap £20 boots that look similar every month as they wear out really quick and look a mess. These boots I got last year for £160. It seems like an awful amount of money but when your spending money on 'disposable' boots every months they actually save you money. I bought these last year just as it started to get cold. Still to this day (about 9 months later) there are in immaculate condition. They look so great and are such good quality. You cant complain. I think these will last me at least 2 years. Probably more. They look so much better than the cheaper versions. They keep there shape and there tread. If anything happens to them you can get the 'UGG Care Kit' which is quite expensive but meant to be an 'UGG' life saver. Especially when you've spent so much money. Last Christmas it snowed realy heavily. I walked right through a lot a snow and I honestly didnt feel anything. The snow didnt come in and my feel were still warm even though the snow was right up to the top of my boots. I would never go back to them old cheap boots because these are so reliable and so good quality. They are also soooo amazingly comfy. They seem like a lot of money but its well worth it in the long run. Definitely worth every penny!!!
I had several pairs of shoes like these from Primark. However, the soles have away easily and my feet always fell down into the side. I looked as if I was walking on the inside of my shoe. I thinkt he style of boots are great, and I hate the idea of leathery boots that stick to the inside of your foot. I like big chunky boots that I can wear and walk around with all I like. My mum noticed that I always complain at winter because I slip on ice due to grip less boots. This is when I started buying the Primark copies of UGGs. They were very similar to UGGs just with a much cheaper feel to them. My mum bought me a pair of real UGGs for Eid. They were black and looked very stylish. They have a suede feel to the outside of them. As it was my mum who bought them, I'm not really sure hoe much they cost or where they were from, but I've heard the average price for these UGGs is about £100. This is very expensive for boots and I'm not sure if I would pay it myself but when I think about it, I waste £15 on the cheap version, and go through about 4 in a summer, that's £60. Wheras, for an extra £40 I can get a pair of UGGs that will last me two, maybe even three winters! I still wear my UGGs in the summer even if it is hot as they have such a stylish look to them. The boots go quite high up the calf and they can go with skinny jeans, skirts, tailored trousers, tracksuit bottoms - you name it! This is what's so great about them, it's that you get so much use out of them and they go with everything. The outer material is very fluffy and soft, and it's sturdy too. However, the best part is that the inside is fluffy which means your feet are always warm regardless. The best thing about these boots is the comfort. They don't drain your leg, or rub against your skin, and you are 100% guaranteed your skin will always feel warm. Also, you don't need to get used to wearing them because they are made perfectly to fit your feet already when you first slip them on. They are very weatherproof and I find that you can wear them in the rain and your feet still feels dry. The sole is quite soft but quite think which means unlike cheap shoes you can't feel the shapes of pebbles on the ground and also it keeps your feet away from little puddles. The grip on the bottom is quite good for ice as hard plastic will just slide off like ice skates. This is the reason why my mum bought me them, to help me survive in icy conditions. However, if you step into a large puddle, you will probably find that your feet will start to get slightly wet so like all shoes, try and keep them in good condition. The word UGG is actually deprived from the world "Ugly". However, I think the boots look lovely and I would prefer them to any other boot. You can turn down at the sides to let some of the fluffyness show, which is good if you're wearing jogging trousers, or if you're wearing a skirt, it looks quite nice to pull them up. The boots can be quite heavy because of all the fluff but it's a nice heaviness. Everytime you lift your foot up you can feel the fur tickling your feet. Is sometimes wear them without socks just to feel the lovely inner material against my toes. They are extremely durable and I have had them for about 8 months now and they are still in great conditions. My foot has slightly shrunk to the side in them but it's no where near as bas as the fake ones. Also, another point is that there's a lot of fake version but nothing compares to the real ones and they are worth every penny I'm glad I've found them and I would never change boot again.
I know that Uggs are a bit of a love - hate item, but as I've professed before, I am in the "love" camp because they cannot be beaten for comfort. I have several pairs of differing styles and colours - and this includes the Ugg Australia Women's Bailey Button Flat Boot. These come in a variety of colours - of which I have the Chocolate and the Jester Red, but there is also Grey, Black, Chestnut, Brown, Pink and Sand. I opted for the Jester Red simply because it was the one that really stood out to me, whereas all of the other colours are somewhat muted (although that's not a bad things at all). I got them directly from the Ugg shop in London for the reduced price of £115.00 - although I do recognise that that's still pretty expensive for everyday boots. However, because I own several pairs of Uggs, I'm more than aware that these boots last a long time and the comfort or quality never seems to diminish - and so I'm very willing to pay more for such great quality. Believe me, I have seen fake Ugg in the Bailey Button Flat style and, although they may be a quarter of the price, they are also a quarter of the quality! These boots are calf high and are the perfect length to wear with jeans. They are pull on in style, although there is a button-up style fastening device on the outside edge of the boot - but in reality this never really needs touching. They are constructed of 100% high quality sheepskin, with gorgeous fluffiness on the inside and equally gorgeous suede on the outside. The heel is flat, with the soles ridged for good grip and made of EVA (whatever that is, but I would basically describe them as rubber). They can either be worn up or turned over - but I prefer to wear them up as I just feel they sit better that way. The great pull of these boots is the comfort. Seriously, no matter how long I wear these boots, I find that my feet literally sink into the fleecy insides and keep my feet so comfortable. As with all Uggs, surprisingly, the fleeciness does not make my feet hot, but instead somehow they keep my feet warm in winter and cool in summer (yes, I do wear them in summer). And, unlike my Doc Martins, you don't really need to wear these boots in because the material is so soft they literally mold to your feet from the first time you put them on. I LOVE them! The only negative I can find to say about these boots is that they are not waterproof. Having said that, there was only one occasion where my feet ended up wet - and that was when I was in San Francisco and stuck in a downpour the likes of behind I have never seen! Apparently, you can buy a spray water repellant but I've never used this on any of my boots as I've never really felt the need as they have never got water-stained, and there is only one time where my feet have got wet. I really love wearing these boots, although I concede that they are not the most beautiful looking boots in the world! However, I've had too much experience of walking around in shoes that look great on a shoe-rack but leave my feet red and sore, to worry too much about the way they look. They are comfortable and snuggly and for day to day wear, they really can't be beaten!
I had wanted some Uggs for ages after initially not really liking the design much. But they stayed in fashion and the design gradually grew on me. I never really liked the classic ones that much and they just seem a bit bulky, but when I came across the Cardi design with three buttons up the side I knew I must buy them and that was around 3 years ago - they're still going strong! I was totally satisfied with my purchase and wasn't looking for another others until I spotted these. They looked different to any of the other designs and I really liked them straight away. I was slightly put off by the price and although I was expecting a considerable expense, £195 seemed a little excessive despite paying £130 for my last pair. I put the purchase off for a while, trying to convince myself they weren't worth the money but as you can imagine, this didn't last for long! Upon my next trip to London for a shopping spree I headed to selfridges which is a firm favourite as far as shops are considered. I could not help myself but to wander over to the Uggs to have a look. Knowing I really shouldn't, I tried some of these boots on and as expected they felt great. They come in a variety of colours such ad sand and chocolate but I ended up purchasing the one shown in the picture as they appealed to me the most. They are a really eye catching boot with a wooden button on the side and the sheepskin which is a little visible inside the boot. They are extremely comfortable to wear and I've never experienced any rubbing while wearing them. They are padded (maybe lined is a better word but it sure feels like padded!) with sheepskin throughout making them really warm and wearable. They are probably the most comfortable shoe I've ever bought. From the outside, they appear to get thicker toward the top of the boot and you can see the Ugg logo on the bottom at the back. They have a lot of gripping underneath making them easy to wear in bad weather too. Despite being expensive, they are ab extremely popular boot at the moment and worth every penny in my opinion. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a comfortable boot. The prices vary from place to place however you should buy from a reputable seller as there are a lot of fakes floating about. You really can't go wrong with these, they're amazing!
I finally twisted my own arm last month to treat myself the the ugg bailey button boots that i have wanted for months. I have other ugg boots but loved the style and look of the bailey buttons. I only ever buy my boots from selfridges as there are way to many fake websites selling these boots plus i like to try them on before i part with my hard earned dosh. My ugg bailey button boots cost £195. These boots come in a range of different colours from chestnut, black chocolate brown, and sand. I choose the sand colour ,its a very light cream colour, easily get dirty though. Ugg bailey button boots are made by ugg australia, uggs are made from thick sheepskin lining of the boots inside and soft suede on the outer of the boot. These boots have a soft rubber type sole on them with small rugged wedges giving the boots good grip while walking. The boots feature the ugg badge logo on the heel of the boots. I like the wooden button on the sides off the boots, its wooden and again has the ugg logo stamped on it. Ugg bailey button boots are slide on no need to use the button. I love the fact these are slide on very wide and comfortable to slide my foot into making them ideal to slip on in a hurry. The sheepskin lining inside the boot is super comfortable as this is also on the inside of the sole as well as lining the sides of the boots. I find them comfortable and cosy, the sheepskin also cushions my feet so nice to walk on. Ugg bailey buttons are short boots half calf length. Although they are quiet shaped at the foot and ankle they get wider towards the top of the boots. I think these look more stylish compared to the ugg classic boots also the bailey buttons look lovely with jeans where as i could only were leggings with my classic uggs. I would highly recommend all ugg boots however these are even nicer than other uggs and highly recommend these. For me my only complaint would be the colour i choose , very pale cream and get dirty very quickly but i did buy the ugg care kit so i use the brush and boot spray the dirt soon disappears. If choosing the light coloured uggs then i recommend the care kit to well worth it and costs £19.99. I do think these boots are very expensive but will last a long time , i still have my original short ugg classic boots and they are 4 years old still going strong. I would also recommend anyone wanting to buy ugg bailey button boots to try them on as these can be awkward sizes and its a lot of money to part with to find out they don't fit. Ugg bailey buttons i highly recommend them, most comfortable, cosy winter boots iv ever had. Warning once worn you wont take them off again. More comfortable than slippers.
