UGG® - not just fluffy boots


Years ago I wanted a pair of UGG® boots so badly. I actually bought some but found out later they weren't the official UGG® boots just some sheepskin boots that came from Australia! Since then every woman seems to have a pair and there are cheap copies everywhere in the winter.  So when UGG® asked if I'd like to review something from their summer collection I was dreading having a look online. Fear not, it's not at all what you are expecting. Summer sandals galore that look stunning and don't even get me started on their gorgeous bags.

UGG® have quality items, I knew they would because of the brand they are but also the prices of their items so when my gift turned up yesterday I was super excited. I love the recycled brown box the sandals arrived in.



I was not disappointed when I got the sandals out. The grey was dreamy high quality grey, the snakeskin detail is subtle and oozes class, the sandals themselves are made from the softest leather and are, without any shadow of a doubt, the comfiest sandals I've worn. The 'thong' is made of the same super soft leather and so it just feels comfortable instead of a hard plastic 'thong' which can be uncomfortable in some cheaper flip flops/sandals.




I love the gladiator style and the support at the back helps.

I was torn between the ones I chose above and these beauties (£60)



And I could have chosen any of the ones below - check out the Lucianna!

 How did I wear my new sandals today? With a simple dress - let the shoes do the talking!



What's caught your eye on the UGG® website today?

    1. I had no idea either and at first I thought they'd be all fluffy and sheepskin - I was wrong!

    1. I was thinking the sandals would turn out with sheepskin lining or something! Some fabulous shoes (and bags!)

  5. You chose the best pair, well done you! Very nice indeed, simple but effective. I must admit I cannot look at the UGG website as it has so much gorgeous stuff that what the eye doesn't see the heart doesn't grieve over ;)

  6. I think you chose the best pair too. I have a pair of the suede flip flops from a couple of years back and they are still going strong and yes - they are so comfy. We actually have an Ugg shop now in Leeds - I was actually noseying in the window and saw some snakeprint ones which I loved but I didn't have time to go in (parking running out). Will have a nosey in next time - at your pair.

  7. They'll go with so much! I also really like the Assia!
    I've worn my Ugg boots since I was a southern California beach girl in the 80s and now live in their slippers for winter. It's nice to see them doing such pretty sandals.
