Ugg Boots: Classic Short
Advantages: Lovely, fluffy
To be completely honest, I've never been one for a bandwagon! Until recently, I had no interest in Uggs, and secretly thought they looked a bit ridiculous. I certainly wouldn't have paid the hefty price tag for a pair! Seeing celebrities in the newspaper wearing Uggs would not have made me buy any!
However, when Christmas came around, my dad had invested in some for both me and my sister. Although he did think they were slippers...
Since then, I've been completely converted to the ways of the Ugg! I own the classic short ugg boots in dark brown. They are a gorgeous chocolatey brown colour and rescued me from my usual black! I wear a lot of black, but owning brown boots made me have a good think about what to put them with etc! I'm very much a jeans kinda person on the weekend, so being able to put on some lovely fluffy boots to go out in the winter is somewhat satisfying!
Over Christmas, my dad handed me a large, wrapped up cardboard box. Upon tearing into it, and taking out a big box with the Ugg Australia logo on it, I delved in and pulled my boots out. After feeling the fluffiness of the inside, I was instantly converted!
Authentic Ugg boots (there are a lot of fakes!) are made out of treated twin faced sheepskin. The inside is fluffy and soft, the outside is more robust but still lovely and soft. You can really tell the authentic product from the feel of the material and the quality of product. They have an Ugg logo on the back of the boot.
I've been told by others that you are supposed to buy you Uggs a size bigger than you would normally wear in shoes due to the amount of fluffiness inside. Mine are the same size as I would wear but I don't think they feel too small or anything like that. If I brought another pair I would still buy them in the same size as they are fine how I wear them now, even with socks on!
I have now owned my Ugg boots for nearly a year and the quality is still great. The fluff is still thick, the soles are still great and aren't wearing down quickly. You need to care properly for your Ugg boots. I've not worn my boots out in the rain, and I wouldn't recommend it! I would recommend spraying htem with the Ugg protect spray. Me and my sister shared the purchase of a bottle as it is quite pricey at £15. However, I do think that they have kept the outsides of them really nice, just in case you are ever caught out and get wet! Mine have got a bit dirty in that time. However, I wait until any mud is dry and then I brush it off with an old towel, making sure it stays dry. They have kept really well so far and I can't see them being unwearable at any point soon! Purely from this point of view, I think that the price of Uggs are definitely worth it as they are so durable!
There are a wide range of different Ugg products. You can buy the boots in a taller size and in many other colours. Ugg also do a range of shoes, flip flops etc.
I am now converted to Ugg boots. I have found that they are lovely and cosy, the quality is really top notch. The material feels really soft and they feel really supportive to wear. I have seen the difference between a fake pair and the real thing and you really can tell the difference in terms of the stitching etc. Although they are rather expensive (£170 in Schuh), it's worth the investment as they last ages and lovely to wear in the winter!
Summary: Highly recommended
