To Ugg or not to Ugg? (comfy winter footwear post birth)
Hi there! Just want opinions on winter footwear from some experienced shoppers
I am giving birth in October and am looking for a pair of very comfy winter boots or shoes I could wear through the bad weather.
I own some trainers but would love something that goes with everything and don't think trainers would be good for everyday comfort. I was in Office the other day and tried on a pair of classic mid calf Ugg boots in black. They were very comfy but I have never been that big a fan, especially after seeing Joey Essex wearing them on the telly They are so comfy but expensive and a bit moon boot looking (though I could overlook all this if they are really worth it comfort wise).
I don't think Uggs stand up well to wet weather. My dd wore hers in the snow and they ended up badly marked with white lines on them, then took ages to dry. Better to get some leather boots, like Bullet said.
Yes, don't buy the classic Uggs - get one of their slightly more robust styles like these They are extremely comfortable, way warmer than normal boots and don't skid on snow and ice. I gave in to Uggs last winter and couldn't bring myself to take them off until March...
I love my Uggs (despite slating them for years) and are perfect for cosy comfort after having a baby but these didn't cut it in the snow this year. Merrell do some fab snowboots which were perfect in the the rain and snow but then you can get some uggs which do withstand wet weather.
