An experience wearing UGG boots is like no other, unless you know what it feels like if your feet were wrapped in tiny Tempur-Pedic mattresses. When we first slipped into those puppies as a teen, it was a revelation. Could it be that we found a pair of shoes that are super cozy AND go with everything in our wardrobe? (At least back then we thought they did.)
And just when we tried to brave the elements in quite possibly the comfiest pair of boots ever, your favorite footwear ends up sopping wet after only a few minutes of rainy or snowy weather. A temporary fix included waterproof sprays but weathered damage to our dear UGGs were forever. Luckily, the Aussie boot gods answered our prayers with these UGG Australia Waterproof Boots ($164.95), which means we’ll be wearing this trusty pair straight through the holidays, whether it’s a long travel home to visit the family or a day of lounging around by the fireplace to avoid that dreadful polar vortex. Did our anticipated winter just get lazier? You bet—but drier.
