The New Uggs

This winter you probably won’t find too many sheepskin lined Uggs– the “Ugg-ly” ones men can’t understand– sloshing in the snow. If you thought slippery Uggs were a poor idea for blizzard-like weather what was their unlined knit boot all about? Too high to be a slipper and too odd looking to really match well with anything. And now in their new line of glamour, ranging from equestrian boots to quilted lace-ups, where do the fur cuffed clog boots belong? A wooden heel sounds dangerous with or without inclement weather. Okay, so no one really plans on wearing wood in the snow, but any plant derived material (cork or wood) only works for the sole on summer sandals, on a shoe that allows your foot to breathe. So as sexy as the tall studded sable boots with four inch heel are, I think I’ll have to pass.

What I am loving? The rubber utility heel that has grips and can handle a little slush (if you spray the leather that is). They have expanded their brand to include the old classics and new favorites. If you’re looking for something unique, check out their high-end line made in Italy with snakeskin patterns adorning short and tall boots.

These are my picks:

Calnydra- $180

Conor- $295

Josie II- $295

Piera- $550

**Just be wary of the styling tips for the Dylyn on their website. A regular Ugg boot looks cute and relaxed with denim but not with metallic leggings or a business blazer.
