I’ve suddenly come to a foot-awakening. I have become tired of having achingly cold feet – and Winter in Brisbane has just reached it’s peak – I crave foot warmness – and not to mention toe-fuzziness – I want a pair of Uggs. And don’t take this statement lightly – after hating on Uggs being worn outdoors for many years and treating those who dare to wear them outside with faint disgust bordering on disrespect, I have overcome this allergy and it’s dawned on me: Uggs are comfortable. Ridiculously so.
So I must have a pair.
Except they’re bloody expensive.
And the one that everyone wears are usually Made in China and deceivingly labelled: “Ugg Australia”. Which is owned by Americans. And they start around $135 USD a pair. I can’t help but think that’s a bit of a rip-off for a boot that is not actually Australian made. Yes, even despite the name.
Luckily, I’ve done my research – I won’t be buying Ugg Australia boots (unless they’re seriously discounted, I AM still a bargain-hunter at heart) and will be searching high and low for a pair of Ugg Australian Made boots instead. The style? Well, since I’m a short-arse, I’ll be on the look out for the Classic Mini boot – in chestnut.
And just to reassure you that they don’t look that bad (think Pamela Anderson, Baywatch stylee), some Pinterest inspo:
So UGS or UGH?
