Several years ago, UGG was notorious for their “Classic Boot”. Companies around the world were creating knockoffs and everyone I know probably still has a pair, real or fake. The real UGGs are made sturdy, with soft shearling insides and last an awful long time. For me, the classic UGG boot is more of a large house slipper than a fashion statement, but to each their own.
While many variations of the classic UGG are still in the market and selling like hotcakes (my personal favorite: the ones with sequins), I have been pleased to see UGG branch out in the last few years. They have been creating some really great, high-quality boots and shoes made of more than just shearling, but fine leathers. One of my personal favorites that is out now is the UGG “Foxley”- made with leather and genuine lamb fur. Is there really any other boot that better fits the “boots with the fur” description? I think not.
