Uggs boots are fast becoming a hot fashion item in the US and Canada, and for good reason. Ugg boots are wonderful Australian footwear that is making their presence felt in the worldwide fashion footwear arena.
Uggs boots are what are known by some as sheepskin boots. These boots have been made in Australia for tens if not hundreds of years, and are well known all over Australia. However now they are making an impact on foreign markets.
An Ugg boot is made from the skin of an Australian merino sheep most commonly. The wool part of the skin faces into the inside of the boot and so lies against the leg. This results in a warm soft feel to the boot that is found only from wearing Uggs boots. The Ugg is unique in the level of comfort it offers to the wearer, and devotees of Uggs will maintain tenaciously that Uggs are the most comfortable boot on planet, unsurpassed by any other form of footwear.
The Ugg boot has the soft pliable skin of the sheep facing out as it has the woollen part of the skin facing in. This results in a soft outer or exterior skin to the boot that means that Uggs can be a little prone to damage and wear when used in wet weather or inclement, dirty or muddy conditions. The boot is not the most hard wearing of footwear, and so wearers of Uggs boots learn quickly that they need to use some discretion when selecting which day to wear their Uggs outdoors.
The sheepsking is usually sewn onto a plastic sole, and so the boot is not entirely waterproof. Water can enter around the sole, and although it is possible to buy Ugg waterproofing it is not a total solution. If you own a pair of Uggs it’s better to treat your boots with care and respect and understand that even the best Uggs are not ideal for hard outdoor use and will wear out and get dirty quite quickly if treated too harshly.
However once the limitations of the boot are recognised and the owner of a pair of Uggs learns to use some discretion for just when they are worn, a pair of Uggs will last quite well.
Ugs can be the most comfortable boot you will ever wear. The unique qualities of the sheepskin mean that they will keep your feet warm in even the coldest of weather, but that if you wear them in summer they will not overheat your foot. The sheepskin breathes extremely well and the air spaces formed next to your leg by the looseness of the wool means that your lower leg and foot will be comfortable in the boot even in warm weather.
And Uggs are great indoors where waterproofness isn’t an issue, and make wonderful house slippers. They can be bought in various lengths, so that you can get Uggs that come right up your lower leg to just below your knee, or ankly length Uggs that come up just above the ankle making ideal indoor slippers.
Over the last few years Uggs have become fashion footwear. They now come in all sorts of colors, styles and designs and are very popular in the US and Canada. Unfortunately this has resulted in Uggs becoming extremely expensive, with prices up to or over $500 a pair in some cases for the best of the best fashion boots.
It is possible to find cheaper Uggs but you need to be a canny online shopper to do so.
Anybody, from the very young to the very old, can enjoy a pair. It is quite possible to buy baby Uggs and they are ideal for the elderly who may suffer from poor circulation and cold feet. In both of these cases it may not matter so much about whether these wonderful sheepskin boots are fashionable or not, but in each case the wearer will love them.
Uggs boots are great footwear for anybody. From the very young to the very old a pair will be comfortable and enjoyable to wear, and for the fashion conscious they look great. Consider a pair of sheepskin boots for your next footwear purchased.
