Are Uggs worth the extra money? That's it really grin

IMO not. Although, I am sure there will be others that disagree. Really you are paying for the brand. I have ugg type boots from Just Sheepskin which were £95 - they have been just as warm and worn just as well as uggs

I can only answer from a Childs uggs v emu point of view. Dd1 has emu tall boots and ugg kensingtons. The uggs seem a bit more waterproof but the emu have better soles and haven't yet turned over on the heel like the uggs.
I have ugg roslyns but only because I wanted ankle length with a zip. All in all I would say the emu are much better value for money and ugg part of the cost is for the label.

I bought emu's in new york last year and they have lasted really well, haven't turned over and have wiped up nicely.

I've got both and probably prefer the Emus. The shape around the ankle is less baggy imo but much of a muchness really.

Ooh thank you. Just got a pair of tall chocolate brown emu's for around £105 after discount and cashback smile - discount code of 25% (winter25) if anyone is interested

Am so tempted....another option is Natureshop where they are 101 with free returns until tomorrow (with a code of LFA15 at checkout)

Decisions, decisions....
