CWinter is fast approaching and it's time to drag out your boots from the wardrobe to keep your feet warm and I have the best pair of Ugg Boots to warm my feet, they are the Classic Argyle Knit Ugg boots and I bought them last year from an online store. I have to say I have worn them a lot last year and they are very comfy. The Ugg boots are expensive boots and cost from £127 up to £140 but if you search online as I did you can find them cheaper. I bought mine from www.whoogaboots.co.uk for £77 which is a whopping saving and I didn't mind paying the postage as I was still saving money. The Ugg boots are fur lined and keep your feet very warm in the snowy weather and in winter is important to have warm feet. They come in lots of colours and you can choose from sand, grey, violet, chestnut, chocolate, black or pink so there really is a colour to suit everyones taste. The boots are individually crafted and you can see the quality and attention in the stitching when you look at them, they are durable and hard wearing. They also will keep your feet warm in temperatures as cold as -30C / -22F which is good enough for any harsh English winter frost or snow. These are great for slipping on your feet and are easy to get on without too much fuss, they come to about calf length on the leg or a little higher if your small like me but you can turn them down so that a little of the fleece liner is showing on the outside. These are very fashiopnable boots and lots of people have them. Although the price is high they will last you a few winters, I have had mine a year now and they are still going strong enough for this winter, although they have now become more comfortable as they have been worn in for my feet and the tops are softer with using them. They are a little stiff on the leg at first but give with being worn. They have a rounded toes so there is plenty of room for the toes and they don't squash them up. They have a moulded rubber sole which is great for walking in the snow as you won't slip as well as having warm feet they are safe footwear. They come in all sizes. They are made of sheepskin material so you have to be careful when cleaning them as they could lose the shape, warm water is suggested to use for cleaning and they clean quite easily if you are removing mud from them. All in all a very good boot that lasts.
I've just had one pair of these Ugg boots, the Classic Knit Argyles, compared to three pairs of the Classic Tall Uggs. However I do love these just as much. These are actually comfier than the classic talls (if this is even possible as classic talls are pretty comfy themselves) These are just like wearing a pair of slippers. I have them in the dark grey pictured, but they are available in other colours. These are still expensive (all Ugg boots are really, however they are not as expensive as the classic talls). I normally buy my Ugg boots in the US, where they are much cheaper, however I did buy these in the UK. I bought them from the Ugg Store in Manchester. I bought these about 2 and a half years ago, and I think that I paid £140.00 for them. Yes Ugg boots are expensive, but occasionally shops do have them on offer. It is also worth buying them in the US if you are there on holiday. The sheepskin inside Ugg boots is designed to keep your feet toasty and warm in the winter, and nice and cool in the summer. I was a bit dubious about the nice and cool in the summer claim, I mean how a pair of sheepskin boots keep your feet cool, but they actually do! The sheepskin liner and sole are so soft, and this combined with the lightweight flexible sole on the classic knit argyles makes them so comfortable. I can wear mine all day from morning to night, be on my feet all day, walk for miles in them, and they are still as comfortable as when I first put them on, no sore feet either. Ugg boots are worth the money if you look after them. They will last quite a while if you follow the care instructions and DO NOT go out in the rain in them. You can buy an Ugg cleaning kit for your boots, I've never bought this, I've just looked after my Ugg boots on the whole. I find that Ugg boots are slightly on the big side, I always go down a size, I'm normally a size 5, and I always buy a size 4 in Uggs. I do have quite wide feet, and I have no problems with the foot width in Uggs. I've also got quite chunky calves, and the classic knit argyles are a perfect fit for me, as they are a bit like a sock so they will fit any calf width. I can even wear them over my skinny jeans. I love the argyle knit on these boots, The classic knit argyles look great either pulled taut all the way up, or slouched down like a crinkly sock. They are a very different look to the classic talls , but they still look good with absolutely anything; from skinny jeans or legggings or tights, to short dresses or skirts, to shorts. I've even worn them over my pyjamas to nip to the drive through McDonalds! I would probably buy these again, as they seem to be available all the time now in a wide range of colours.
I was lucky enough to receive these Ugg Classic Argyle Knit Boots for Christmas 12 months ago and I cannot praise them highly enough. I already have the Ugg Cardy in Black (with the buttons up the side), and these are a non button, patterned, taller style in the same wool. Mine are dark grey, I have also seen them available in Black and Taupe. **Price and Availability** You can purchase the Ugg Classic Argyle Knit Boots at most major shoe outlets - mine are from Office. I would be wary of buying them from an unreputable dealer as there are a number of fakes out there - go with an authorised dealer, as you get an authenticity card and you can be assured the quality of the boots is of the high Ugg quality you would expect. I have seen them for £80 - £110 with the average being around £99. Certainly in the sales and with the advent of so many online retailer discount codes, you may just get a bargain. **Packaging** Genuine Uggs come in a grey/white cardboard box with an authenticity card and both the box and the card are stamped with the Ugg logo. **Sizing** As Uggs are lined with sheepskin which is quite fluffy the fit can be ever so slightly snugger than regular unlined boots. That said as Uggs come in half sizes this is easy to accomodate - for example, I am a size 7 and a size 7.5 fits me very comfortably indeed, with or without socks. As these boots are soft and feel like socks, lots of people don't bother, but I prefer to for extra warmth! **Durability** I was suprised to find that my knitted Uggs are both fairly waterproof - OK, I wouldn't go wading through a puddle, but they are splashproof, and survive very well with the rain and puddles that my Manchester home is subjected to on most days! They are also very very easy to clean - they don't absorb dirt and stains and you can run them under the tap and dry them off a bit like a jumper if you have a lighter colour pair. They don't need treating, they just seem to repel water, due to the tight knit. The sole is not the soft, cheap foam that the Ugg-a-likes have, which compacts and ends up with you walking over onto the side of the boot. It is a much more dense and durable foam with a rubber inlay which is comfortable to walk on and has stayed perfectly straight. The wool lining has flattened a bit underfoot so I recently purchased for £1 a new set of wooly inserts, just to restore that soft bounce you get with new Uggs. **Fashion** As well as being incredibly comfortable, warm and splash proof, Uggs look good, too, and they're very popular out and about. You can slip them on for a walk, out shopping, or the school run. Pretty much anything. Due to their pretty pattern, colour and soft appearance, they look well with casual dresses and leggings or tights, or with skinny jeans and a jumper. Even my mum has a pair in Taupe which she wears underneath trousers, and they keep her legs warm! They've been popular for a good few years now and they're so comfortable and practical I can see them being a wardrobe staple for quite a while yet. **Would I recommend?** Absolutely. They're my second pair of Uggs and I can see me having both pairs for years. On that basis they are worth every penny, they are a bit more expensive than the lookalikes but they are ten times more durable. They look good, and they're easy to slip on with most outfits. 5/5
After thinking about buying a pair of Uggs for a few years this winter I finally took the plunge! I had previously been deterred by the price tag & was worried they wouldn't live up to expectations but thankfully I couldn't be more pleased with my gorgeous Ugg Classic Argyle Knit Boots. I'm a busy mum and these boots make me feel stylish and on trend. They have worn amazingly considering they have barely left my feet in the last 5 months. I do allot of walking and did worry they'd wear quickly or look tatty after being caught in the rain but after drying off they looked as good as new. They are super comfy and lovely and soft. I decided on the cosy sweater look ones as they are a bit different. I am glad I did as I have had allot of compliments from other mums. They have definitely been worth the money and I would never go back to cheaper alternatives now I've worn the real thing!
Years ago I bought a pair of the classic UGG boots in chestnut. The shorter style. I instantly fell in love with them and they have been worn to death, except that's the thing, they never died, even though they were worn excessively. They were so well used, that the price didn't even seem expensive anymore, so I then invested in a black pair. I decided this winter to buy something a little bit different, which is hard seeing as I wanted UGGs again, but everyone seems to be wearing them now. The UGG explosion just hasn't dampened down! I decided to go for the UGG argyle boots as they looked so soft and comfy, just like the cardi design, but that was a little more popular so the argyle won out. The UGG classic argyle come in the traditional UGG box. Light brown with the logo on I always keep my UGGS in the box to keep them nice, at least for the first few months until they get thrown in the cupboard with the rest of the shoes! They are fairly tall, they are the same height as the tall boots in the traditional UGG style. The boots are filled with the same gorgeous sheep skin lining, which is probably my favourite part of the boots. They are so unbelievably soft. It keeps your feet warm in winter and cool in summer-what a miracle. It also moulds to your feet after a couple of years-one reason why I wouldn't buy a second hand pair. The outside of the boots is a knitted style, in grey. It is a fine close knit, just like an argyle jumper (as the name would suggest). It has a diamond pattern up the side, in the same colour as the main design, just raised. The knit is a much closer fine knit than the cardi style. I bought boot protector whcih I used and that added some waterproofing properties to the boots, but even so I would not step in a deep puddle with these boots on as they would get ruined. They would withstand a light rain shower though. If I could change one thing about these boots, I would make them waterproof without looking any different. They are comfy, fashionable, warm and cheaper than the traditional ones at £70 approx on amazon. Treat yourself!
I was given the argyle knit UGG boots, as a gift for my birthday in March this year by my fiance. He selected the cream colour for me, not the most practical, I know. On the upside though they are also available, in a light tan colour, charcoal and black. I'm not sure exactly how much my fiance payed for them as they were a gift, but after doing some research they appear to retail at around £140. I however do know my ones came from Schuh in Glasgow (my fiance doesn't do wrapping gifts, they come in the store carrier bag). I'm not sure about other towns, but I know stockists in glasgow are Debenhams, Frasers, Schuh, Office, Cube, USC and Gravity, and probably others also, these are just the ones I know that definetly stock them. The boot itself, is made from thick wool. The argyle knit style only encases the leg of the boot, the foot however is just the general knit style. The sole is also fairly thick, so will give good wear out of them. They are an extremly confortable pair of boots, and great for the winter as they keep my feet rare and warm. However they are not good in the rain, and I'm imagining also not good in snow. The rain has left mines all stained darker around the bottom of the boot. So I would definetly recommend a pair in a darker colour, although the cream shade is great as it goes with everything, but then again so will most of these colours. The other problem I find with them is, that when I walk in these boots, I tend to find myself walking to the side slightly in them, and this isn't the case with my original style ones, that aren't of a knit style material. Which clearly can't be good for posture, over a long period of time. There are a lot of copy-cat versions of the UGGS floating around the internet just noe, so I would definetly recommend getting them from one of the well established stores, where at least you will have the guarentee, that it will still be there if and when you try to return them. Also the genuine ones, will have the official UGG label, stitched into the back of the boot, at the heel area. All in all worth the money, but darker shades, make more sense as an investment.
I think everyone has heard of UGG Boots and if you haven't why not?!! Even if your not a fan due to the high price tag they are something that you will have no doubt seen in shops and on people. They are a craze which hit the UK quite a few years ago but are still going strong and getting increasingly popular with both men and women. I myself have invested in a few pairs of UGGs including a pair which I had for Christmas last year off my lovely other half which was the Classic Argyle Knit style which I had been eyeing up for sometime but had resisted buying a pair myself! The UGG Australia history began back in 1978 when they were brought to America by a young Australian surfer called Brian Smith. By 1995 Deckers Outdoor Corporation acquired UGG Australia and within a few years the line had expanded with further products such as slippers as well as the boots. Suddenly the brand stopped being for the surfer crowd and became known as a high end brand. By the turn of the century UGGs really took off and in 2003 they were named "Brand of the Year" by Footwear News. Nowadays UGGs are seen on the runways of Milan, Paris, London and New York. I was incredibly pleased when I opened my present to find a pair of the UGG Classic Argyle Knit Boots as I had been wanting a pair for quite sometime. My other half had chosen the charcoal colour but they are also available in black, cream and tawny brown but regardless of colour they all have the same knitted argyle style. What UGG say about the Classic Argyle Knit:- "The women's UGG® Classic Argyle Knit combines a classic prep school pattern and cozy sweater knit for the coolest, comfiest, casual look. This shoe features a merino wool blend silhouette, made to look like your favorite sweater as well as a soft foam insole covered with genuine sheepskin and a molded EVA outsole designed for amazing comfort with every step." One thing to note about the Classic Argyle Knit style is that they tend to be slightly large and UGG recommend that you order a size smaller than your usual shoe size. Fortunately, my other half was advised this by the sales assistant and was able to get the right size. If you are in between sizes then they recommend that you order half a size down. The boot's main material is a merion wool and poly blend which is incredibly durable with a nylon binding together with the signature UGG woven label. What I really like about UGGs is that the sole is incredibly light and this is due to it being made out of EVA which is a light and flexible material which is molded, this lightweight material makes UGGs in my opinion incredibly easy to wear and comfortable. The total height of the boot (without scrunching them down) is 34.3cm and the boot circumference is 33cm. One thing to note about the Classic Argyle Knit is that they are not waterproof and I would recommend that you buy a waterproofing product (UGG do one) to keep them protected from the elements as they are too expensive to ruin! The bets thing for me about this boot and about UGGs is the lining. It is made out of a sheepskin covered PU foan insole which means that these boots are heavily padded and are wonderfully soft which makes these boots so comfortable. UGG only use the highest grade sheepskin available and the comfort that the sheepskin provides is what the UGG brand is famous for. It is extremely dense and soft which apart from being comfortable it is also durable making them last for a long time. Grade A sheepskin breathes naturally, allows air to circulate and wicks away any moisture which keeps the feet nice and dry. I wear my UGGs most of the time without socks as sheepskin is naturally thermostic which keeps your bare feet close to your natural body temperate regardless of the outside temperature. The Classic Argyle Knit boots are made of quite a chunky knit and the argyle style is only on the upper part of the boot. They have a slightly elasticated band at the top which fits to your leg but without being too tight so won't cause any pressure. The sheepskin lining is only found at the foot of the boot as the upper is purely the merino wool/ poly blend. The sheepskin lining molds to your feet which is nice as they always remain comfortable. I really like the Argyle style compared to some of the other UGG boots which are available as the pattern is different and the ribbed band at the top of the boot keeps them in place. The UGG Classic Argyle Knit Boots are available at all UGG retailers but please be aware that a lot of counterfeits are now being produced and sold for significantly less. For an actual pair of real UGGs it is best to go to an actual UGG retailer. UGGs can be found in stores such as Bank, Kurt Geiger and Schuh. The Classic Argyle Knit retails at around £135.00 per pair which believe it or not is one of the cheaper UGG styles available! For me, these boots are great. They are incredibly comfortable to wear, they keep my feet warm and go with most of my clothes (a typical girly answer!). Despite the price I think because of the materials used and the fact that they last for such a long time make them worth the price tag as cheaper versions simple wear and fall to pieces after a short amount of time. UGGs are designed to be durable and long lasting and even though I've only had my Classic Argyle style knit for just under a year they are still as good as new, the PU sole takes an incredibly long time to show any wear at all and because the heel is reinforced it won't crease and bend unlike the cheap versions you see where the heel is rubbing along the floor! I would recommend UGGs to anyone who is willing to pay the price for good quality.
