replica Ugg boots- not just a fashion item

he infamous ugg boots have become an Australian icon over the years. Ugg boots are a style of sheep skin boots that are made with twin-faced sheep skin; fleece coats the inside and a tanned outer surface covers the shoe. Initially ugg boots were worn by Australian surfers in the 1960s to keep themselves warm. Later on, in the 1970s ugg boots were introduced in the United States and United Kingdom to the growing surf culture. It wasn’t until the late 1990s that ugg boots began to be recognised as a fashion trend.
Previously there have been legal disputes surrounding the term ‘ugg’, which were put to end when ‘ugg’ was recognised as a more generic term to refer to these sheep skin boots. Currently there are over 70 registered trademarks that have the term ‘ugg’ in a number of logos and designs in Australia and New Zealand.

Ugg boots are not only popular as a fashion icon but are also brilliantly designed to keep the feet warm. Sheep skin has natural insulate properties that give the boots specific thermal properties. This simply means that the thick fleece coating the inner part of ugg boots absorbs moisture (perspiration) and allows air to circulate. This ensures that feet stay at body temperature and allows the boots to keep feet warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. This is why ugg boots are so suitable to Australian weather as well, as there is both extreme heat and chilly winters.
The thick fleece inside also moulds to the shape of one’s foot, making them highly comfortable. Some have described this feeling as ‘walking with a soft rug strapped to my foot’.

It’s apparent that ugg boots are one of the most comfortable foot wear out there, but they aren’t just popular for this sole reason. Ugg boots, as mentioned above, were initially introduced by the surf culture in Australia; however, they are now part of mainstream fashion. From the average fashion enthusiast to top celebrities, it seems that everyone is jumping on the ugg boot bandwagon! A plethora of styles and colours are available. However anyone who has purchased ugg boots will admit that they’re worth the money retailers charge for them and it is warranted with the amount of comfort these shoes have to offer, not to mention their longevity

Are fake Ugg Boots Trendy Again In 2017?

Safe to say the world is made up of two kinds of people: those who love and wear fake Uggs, and those who don’t.

And then there’s me. The idiot who changes her sartorial mind more often than a teenager says ‘omg’.

What is it about  fake Uggs that leaves some appalled, some in a constant eye roll, some crazy in love still, and some in love behind closed doors? Is there an Ugg controversy, and if so – why? Cause they’re ugly? Since when has ugliness been a deal breaker in fashion?

Mhhm. That didn’t sound right, did it? However it is. Hello Birkenstocks, and the ugly shoe trend that has been a massive fad for the past 2 years or so. So why are we so quick to dismiss replica Uggs while snapping #OOTD pics in Birkenstocks? #doublestandard

The worst decade in fashion was none other than the 2000s, years and years of horrendous outfits paired with the ubiquitous big-foot like shoe – the Uggs. Winter, summer, nobody gave a shit, they were wearing fake Uggs with mini denim skirts and blue eyeshadow. Then fashion grew out of this teenage phase and became slightly sophisticated, which of course was incompatible with the ugly and slob replica Uggs. They became a huge faux pas.

Except… people never stopped wearing them behind closed doors. Girls were still in Uggs on their Saturday shopping walks, moms were still going for the ugly comfy boot when running errands, celebs still had them on in airports.

Nobody really gave them up. Sure, you didn’t see them front row at FW, but who’s to say Anna Wintour didn’t change into a pair once she got home? And would it be so bad if she had?

Are they really so ugly that even the ugly shoe trend is too pretty for them, or are we just blinded by the fashion must-be’s-and-must-do’s that we’d rather be a tad hypocrite than admit to an replica Uggs affair?

They are ugly as shit. Square. Lifeless. Big-foot style. Who the fuck wants a big-foot? BUT they’re super comfy I have heard (yes, I’ve never in my life put my feet into a pair), and they tend to cause addiction. With all this being said, I don’t thing their appearance is the issue here, more like their pairing into an outfit. And their 2000s legacy, or stigma if you will.

It’s not about what you wear but how you wear it, you know.

replica Uggs are ugly but they look kinda cool when worn in an undone outfit. Sort of like casual-undone-sporty-vacay-winter style-too-cool-for-fashion-young-adult-outfit.
