Whether you’d like to admit to it or not, it is most likely that many of you out there still have a pair of UGG® boots sitting in your closets. I know I still have mine, a pair of UGG® Classic Shorts with the sheepskin insoles in dire need of replacement and a few unfortunate stains and discolorations on the once supple suede outer shells. I guess I wore them one too many times in the snow and rain.
Now my sad little boots have been demoted to my bedroom slippers as the fashion world has officially declared them “so over.” But I won’t be getting rid of them anytime soon. They are one of those fads that kind of have a sentimental attachment, like bell-bottoms or leg warmers. I went everywhere in those things.
But while we have been searching for decent replacements, UGG® Australia has revamped its whole operation to adapt to the fashion forward market. Of their many new footwear creations, I have three favorites: The Locarno-Croc Embossed Boot with a shearling cuff (inspired by bomber jackets, which is a pretty hot idea), the Stacked Heel Tess with cowboy style stirrups, and the Classic Crochet Tall, a perfectly warm and snuggly pair for the upcoming winter months. All three have touches of suede and signature sheepskin linings and feel the most like UGG. Take my word for it though, and waterproof them before wearing.
