What is your definition of a perfect pair of boots? Is it style, comfort or price? Well if its comfort & style, then Ugg boots are the ideal choice for you. Simply known as “Uggs”, these boots are a variety of sheepskin boots with dual faced sheepskin attached with fleece on the inside & a tanned outer surface with a rubber sole to boot!
While there are several different stories with respect to the origin of these boots, it is widely accepted that its popularity was boosted when Australian surfers started wearing them in the late 60’s. Despite having origins down under, the Americans were the first to truly embrace the Ugg Boot culture in the late 90’s. The rest of the world soon followed suit & Ugg Boots were officially the “thing” across the globe by the mid-2000’s.
Summer/Winter, Indoor/Outdoor, it is so made that it can be worn anywhere & everywhere i.e.; if you can pull off the look.
The fleece lining inside the boot is acquired from sheep that are killed first & then skinned. This material has a natural insulating property & it helps to keep your feet at body temperature. Whether you are looking to protect your feet from the winters’ cold or from summers’ heat, these boots will help you do so.
There is a common misperception that these boots are ideal only for short sprints of time & won’t be helpful if you are going for a walk or for some reason having the need to stand on your feet for a considerable period. The fact of the matter is that REAL Ugg boots are made from top grade sheepskin & thus are highly dense & soft. However, there are low-end versions of these boots which are not expensive but will take a toll on your feet.

Some call it the Ugly Boots; some just say ‘Ugh’ when they see it. Truth be told, Ugg Boots are not the prettiest looking pair of shoes you are going to find on the market.
