not the best uggs
on November 19, 2012
I think these deserve 2.5 stars for the warmth, and the warmth solely. Everything else is not that great about these shoes.
I have a pair of uggs classic short in black and I've been wearing the same pair for 5 years. I had to sew the back once and buy new insoles twice, as well as redye the suede darker (black is easy to redye), but they still hold up great and you can't tell they are that old... they look the same as when I wore them for 3 months. I was excited to see these as I thought it was time to get a new pair, not to replace the old pair, but an addition to my shoe collection.
The fit is definitely off and odd in these. The ankles are HUGE and the shaft is stiff in an odd way. They look fine when I just stand there, but when I walk it feels so weird and awkward because of how stiff they are. I feel like I'm marching instead of walking. Well, I got them for a little less than $90 so I will probably keep them, but any more than that I would've returned. Also, I got them in a 6 (I normally wear 6.5, but 6 in uggs) and they fit fine in the footbed, no different from the old pair that is also a 6. The cut for these are definitely inferior to the ugg classics. You might be attracted to that cargo pocket and think it's "different" or "cool" compared to the classic, but the fit is way off. I really wish ugg designed these better.
