I tried these on today and they were ridiculously comfy and warm (fleece lined).

I normally like biker boots but i wonder if these just look too 'rough' especially given the price tag.

I really really like them - have seen them in person a few times and they were on my imaginary wish list. I would buy them if I had the spare money. Office have 25% off via Grazia mag. They look very well made and quite a classic. You should get plenty of wear from them for years to come.

Office offer in Grazia excludes 'brands' sadly as checked the small print for Uggs hmm

They look lovely, i have seen these too but they are not fully waterproof and they don't have a renewable heel - i think they are too pricey for how long they will last.

i actually prefer the office ones on the same page but those wont be fleecy and comfy

I have them and highly recommend them. They're very warm and are supremely comfortable. They're definitely not the smartest of biker boots but they are great for every day in the winter.

Great, thanks! Not sure yet if I can justify the cost but I suffer from shin splint and a super comfy boot will make a real difference.

Not bikers but fleece lined, very very comfy, do me for work and much cheaper here

Code autumn13 gets 15% off on rubbersole.co.uk. Hurry though as it ends tonight!!! Recommended by moneysavingexpert so should be genuine enough. All other brands discounted too. Free delivery and free returns = no losing! Ordered myself a pair, eagerly awaiting arrival!

Oh no I missed that Shy sad. Thanks for the info though smile. Did you order the same boots for yourself? Hope you'll love them!

I have the Ugg Grandles, which are less clumpy/wellyish, a little shorter and cheaper!
I LOVE them and have worn them almost constantly since buying them

Spotsonmytoes Wed 06-Nov-13 13:07:36

Pen, those look great, I'll google them to see where I can find them. Thanks!

Spotsonmytoes Wed 06-Nov-13 13:09:07

Pen, can I ask where you bought them?

Spotsonmytoes Wed 06-Nov-13 13:09:45

Arrg, sorry pen, are they black or chocolate brown?

Spotsonmytoes Wed 06-Nov-13 13:12:23

I found them here www.zalando.co.uk/ugg-australia-grandle-cowboy-biker-boots-black-ug111c03h-802.html?gclid=CL65vfqd0LoCFZCWtAodigsA6w&size=4.5&wmc=SEM44_CR_EN_2103106.&opc=2211&ef_id=UHlyvgAAXUdCMxXA:20131106131025:s.

I never bought from zalando. Will they be genuine Uggs? Hs anyone got any experience with this online retailer? I heard that some Uggs sold on amazon are fakes hmm.

Schuh and office sell grandle . The Gershwin are a bit welly like for my taste . I have ugg Tatums which are a bit smart and I plan to buy grandle soon.

bishboschone Wed 06-Nov-13 13:47:46

Zalando is a authentic site btw.

PenfoldRocks Wed 06-Nov-13 18:23:49

I bought them at Sole Trader - I wanted to try them on and they were pretty much the same price everywhere. I initially wanted black (which they only seem to have on the Ugg website) but I got the Java, which is a kind of greyish brown iyswim and goes with all colours (i mainly wear grey and navy) without seeming as heavy as black

PenfoldRocks Wed 06-Nov-13 18:24:33

I think I paid £155 in Sole Trader, so a little cheaper than Ugg direct or Zalando

I have had the Ugg Noira boots since last Christmas and couldn't wait for it to be cold enough to get them out again. They are pretty hard wearing, I wear them everywhere in all weathers to walk my dog, and are waterproof. Not sure if my local shoe repairers can re sole them but there are places online that re sole or fix uggs so will do that when I need to.

PenfoldRocks Wed 06-Nov-13 18:53:03

I looked at the Noira too, but preferred the sole on the Grandle. The sole on the Noira is more like the 'traditional' Ugg boots I think and the Grandle is more like a normal biker, but warmer.

They are lovely.

bishboschone Wed 06-Nov-13 19:27:36

I have noira ,. They are fab but pretty casual .

ShyGirlie Wed 06-Nov-13 19:41:08

i ordered the classic short chestnutt ones. Got tall ones 5 years ago, worn nearly everyday in winter - not a mark on them and still perfect! smile Order some asap - u need this luxury in ur life!!

Ok, so ow I can't decide between the grandee and the Gershwin. Which one is it gonna be??? smile
