Ugg Australia Women's Dakota Slipper
Advantages: if you have small feet consider the kids version as they are cheaper
One of the Christmas gifts that I received this year from my mum and dad was a pair of Ugg Dakota slippers. Ugg Dakota slippers come in Women's sizes and Kid's sizes. I do quite often plump for the Kid's version of Uggs as my feet are quite small and so I can fit in the Kid's sizes, this then saves me some money as the Kid's versions are usually much cheaper. My mum bought me the Kid's Dakota slippers as these go up to a size 5, and I take a size 4 in Uggs.
There's no difference at all in styling between the Women's Dakota slippers and the Kid's Dakota slippers. They just come in a different range of sizes and a different choice of colours, and obviously the Kid's version is cheaper. The Women's version comes in sizes 3 through 9, and the colours available are; black with a chestnut coloured lace trim (which is pictured above), chestnut with an espresso coloured lace trim, and espresso with a deeper brown coloured lace trim. The Kids version comes in sizes 12 through 5, and the colours available are jester red with a baby pink coloured lace trim (which is the colour that I have), raven (it's actually black) with a cerise pink coloured lace trim, and chestnut with an espresso coloured lace trim. The Women's Dakota slippers are £80, and the Kid's Dakota slippers are £65.
I have the jester red slippers with the contrasting baby pink coloured lace trim. To be honest I'd say that the slippers themselves are definitely more pink than red, they are a very deep reddish pink colour, and had I not known that Ugg call these 'jester red' then I would have swore blind that they are actually pink. I have these in a size 4 as I find that Uggs are always on the big side, and I always have to go down a size from my usual size 5. The size 4 fits me perfectly, they are not too tight, nor to big, they just fit really neatly and snuggly. I normally just wear these with bare feet, however they also fit well over thick socks or tights too.
The Dakota slippers are a moccasin type slipper and they are suitable for both indoor and outdoor wear. I don't wear my slippers outside as I don't like then walking all the crap from outdoors through my house (I have a bit of a hygeine OCD according to my husband!), however the sturdy moulded rubber sole on these would certainly make them suitable to wear outdoors. The rubber sole even extends part way up the back of the slippers so that you don't wear away the suede at the heels when you are walking. The rubber sole is very flexible and durable, and very comfortable to walk on, and the sheepskin lining inside the slippers makes it feel as though I'm just walking on the softest plushest carper in the world.
The slippers themselves are made from a very high quality and very soft suede, with the contrasting baby pink lace trim being leather. They have the moccasin style detailing and stitching around the front of the slippers, and they look very classy and stylish. They are fully lined with gorgeous soft and warm sheepskin, which works the same as the sheepskin lining in Ugg boots; it is designed to keep your feet toasty and warm in the winter, and then nice and cool in the summer. Obviously having just received these slippers for Christmas I've only worn them in the winter so far; but they have kept my feet lovely and warm over the cold wintery days and nights.
I'm really pleased with these slippers, yes they were expensive, although in my case they were received as a gift, however they are superb quality and they will last for years, especially as I don't intend to wear mine outdoors. I would definitely recommend them, and I'd definitely repurchase these when they do finally need replacing.
