I was delighted to be asked to review some UGG boots, and look, it’s a tough gig walking around on clouds of beautiful Australian wool encased in Australian Sheepskin, but I do these things for you, Ok?! You’re welcome! Now these aren’t just any ‘ol UGG boots, these are genuine Aussie UGG boots – made in Australia (in Victoria actually) by an Australian owned company, and from genuine Australian sheepskin and wool. These were made by Original UGG Boots Australia. Original UGG Boots Australia have over 30 years experience manufacturing sheepskin UGG boots in Australia. If you want genuine Australian made UGG Boots look for the Australian Made/Made in Australia tags as pictured below.
It’s Autumn in Australia at the moment and in Brisbane it’s still feeling like summer through the days, but perhaps a little cooler in our mornings. Even though it’s not yet cold in Brisbane, nothing could stop me from slipping my new UGG boots on the minute they arrived and I’ve been wearing them around the house quite often since. They are absolute heaven to wear. I’m wearing a size 6 and they fit perfectly – snug and supportive but with plenty of wriggle room for my toes. The wool on the inside is so soft and comforting and most importantly, breathable. So we’ve established that they are a joy and pleasure to wear, but how do they look and are they practical?
I was sent the ‘Classic Short UGG Boots’ in Chestnut Napa. I had a choice in what I was sent and let me tell you – the choice was very hard! There are so many gorgeous colours and varieties to choose from (see next paragraph). In the end, I selected these because 1) they suit the Brisbane climate and 2) my vertically challenged frame 3) the fact that they were suitable for indoor/outdoor wear seemed a practical choice, and 4) I loved the Chestnut colour which would go with most of my clothes. So you can see me wearing them above with bare legs. I was wearing a pair of shorts and a t-shirt on a warm but cloudy day. I love the casual, relaxed, comfortable, legendary UGG boot look! They’re an Aussie icon! They not only look great but I really love that they’re Australian made from the finest double-faced sheepskin, feature a Goomi rubber sole, have reinforced heel support, and that the rubber sole of the UGG boots are ridged providing a secure non-slip grip which is reassuring particularly when wearing outdoors! Wins all ’round!
I love the length of the Classic Short UGG Boots – perfect for tucking in your jeans and keeping your feet and ankles warm and toasty and perfect for where I live where it can get brisk and chilly at times but certainly far from arctic conditions! I’ve explained why I chose this style of UGG boots but they also come ultra short, classic short, deluxe, tall, limited edition, rugged, laced, with bows, as slippers, for kids, and more!
To wrap up – these UGG boots are comfortable, practical, look good, and are genuinely Australian made with Australian sheepskin and wool. Not only do you get a fabulous product from Original UGG Boots Australia but isn’t it nice to support a proudly Australian made and owned company!
I do need to point out to be careful when purchasing UGG Boots, especially if you have your heart set on buying a quality product that is authentically Australian made. There are quite a few imitation Aussie UGG boots out there. Many of them aren’t even made in Australia or from Australian sheepskin. They are imported and fake. Look for the Australian Made/Made in Australia tags as per the images in this post.
