If I come across sheepskin slippers or boots I think they’re Uggs. The cult brand is famous and adored for its soft shoes that feel as if they’re snuggled by a warm blanket.
I grew up watching people in Uggs during the winter seasons during the winter months in New England, but the brand was actually born in a totally different environment. Ugg was established around 1978 Brian Smith, an Australian living in Southern California, as an tribute to sheepskin, an item that is commonly used in his country of origin. With the goal of being casual, comfortable as well as casual Ugg was a symbol of Southern California surf culture and soon became an extremely popular brand on the beaches of the world. Since its beginning, Ugg has expanded into new colors and styles , and has been featured numerous times on Oprah’s Top Things.
Uggs can be found on the expensive price range when it comes down to casual shoes and slippers however, you’re paying for high-end quality. I’ve owned a variety of Uggs which have stood the test of time for over ten years, which speaks to the high-end quality of the footwear.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the process by which Ugg gets its materials, you can learn about the process here. In the end Ugg says that it uses only sheepskin that is a byproduct of other industries.
The most sought-after Ugg designs are slippers, therefore, our Insider Reviews team wanted to examine how they compare to our other top brands of slippers. We tested a selection of the top-selling styles for both women and men and found the slippers to be extremely comfortable once you’ve got the right size. We’ve included our complete reviews below, and then head into Zappos and Ugg to purchase your own pair.
Ugg Fluff Yeah slippers
As with like all Uggs like all Uggs, these are made using soft sheepskin. The sheepskin covers the entire sole except for an elastic back as well as a durable platform sole made of rubber. This elastic back can be useful for those who prefer a slipper with an open back but feel they slip off. The open toe and a backless silhouette make sure your feet do not overheatregardless of all the sheepskin.
My most favorite thing, however is how comfortable they are for my feet. The platform is light but sturdy, and it creates slippers that don’t cause pain in my feet after long wear. Furthermore, because that the Fluff Yeah are technically slides and not slippers, they’re sturdy enough to last even just in the next block to the market. -Maria Del Russo, style and beauty editor Maria Del Russo, style and beauty editor
Ugg Tasman slippers
It’s the UGG Ascot is a stylish slipper with a driving style that’s constructed from genuine sheepskin , with Shearling lining that covers the entire interior and outsole. Since this was the initial pair of UGGs I’ve had, I was satisfied with the quality of the leather however, they were too small for my needs. I purchased the correct size and they were extremely tight. It’s important to note that any pair of shoes that has a shearling lining can be a little looser as you wear them, but I as well as several others on Zappos have found the actual size too small. I’d suggest going up to an entire size.
I ended up swapping my Ascots for the second most popular men’s shoes from UGG and the Tasman slippers. This time I went a full size bigger than my normal size, and they’re perfect without or with socks. So far, I’m taking them out for a walk with socks off however I’m certain they’ll soon be element of my everyday autumn footwear rotation due to the soft and cozy shearling lining. As for design the braided edge over the shoes makes the Tasmans of UGG a slightly more fashionable. -The model is Amir Ismael, style and grooming reporter
Ugg Coquette slippers
The very first pair of Ugg slippers I had was a driver style and soon they were getting dusty due to the too-snug fitting that Amir has mentioned in the previous paragraph. I’d been planning to replace them with one of the Ugg slide-on shoes for a long time, but didn’t get the time. After I donned Coquette for the first time, I realized that it was a mistake. Coquette to the first time I realized that I’d done a terrible mistake by not having done it earlier.
Contrary to their drivers counterparts, these shoes are comfy and soft without over-stressing my feet. I enjoy this sole made from rubber since it allows me to walk out to lounge on the patio or read the mail without having to think twice about changing shoes. I usually go down a size in Ugg but this time I went up to allow more room this was definitely the best option. I’ve been wearing them all day all day long for the last month and I don’t anticipate it changing anytime in the near future. -Ashley Phillips, style and beauty editor Ashley Phillips, style and beauty editor
Ugg Ansley slippers
When I was a kid, I owned an old set of Ugg Tasman slippers. I loved them so much that I used them until the inside sole had become matted, and the trim was tearing. I was disappointed to see them go however, I was even more excited to get the Ansley — another top-selling pair.
From the very first moment it was evident that the interior of Ansley was extremely soft. Simply slipping your feet into the Ansley feels like a luxurious experience, which I believe you’ll feel in the majority of Uggs at the beginning. They’re ideal for lounging at home. However, I did find them to be a little small. I bought them in my normal size and they were slightly tight, although I’m sure they’ll expand a bit since they’re made from sheepskin. If you’re taller or don’t really enjoy the feel of a more fitting slipper I’d suggest increasing a size.
I am a fan of the classic design of the Ansley since it protects your feet sufficiently to walk outside and take out the newspaper on a cold day. However, if you’re looking for an indoor and outdoor slipper, I would recommend the Tasman. It is a more durable sole that makes it better well-equipped for use outdoors. I believe both styles are worth the cost depending on the amount of times I wear slippers. However, If you don’t wish to spend that much but nevertheless want a good pair, I’d suggest taking a look at Minnetonka.
