spray them with protector spray it really helps. bit of rain hasn't hurt mine but i try not to wear them in the rain due to their light colour. more for the dirt splashes than just water. my other brand sheepskin boots in a dark colour have been just fine since spraying them. and for what it's worth i don't think uggs have any special edge
thanks club, in my heart i know thesehttp://uk.thenorthface.com/tnf-uk-en/women-s-jozie-boots.html (which i have ordered - should arrive tomorrow) would be far more sensible but i reeeeeeally like the Uggs. Hmm.
those are faux fur ilovebags... and no worries about the name you gotta have the sheep though it's so much better trust me. and those are expensive. you might as well get sheep for that much. i got my emu boots for £100 and they've been great. faux just doesn't keep your feet warm. i love that i can go a whole winter with warm feet while others wear two pairs of socks and grumble. if it's out of those two choices go with the uggs!
