Is there a leather alternative to uggs?

I love the way uggs sit on the leg, I like the width and height of them and how they even out a big calf with a skinny ankle (I'm a size 18 with the skinniest ankle ever) so I feel the even me out .

But they're just not me . I need something leather and biker-esque that I can wear with leggings and chunky jumpers (will be heavily pg over winter)

Not Dr Martens already have purple ones .

Any suggestions will be appreciated gringrin

I was sure there's such a thing as leather uggs?��

Uggs do leather biker style boots. I have a few pairs of uggs and none of them are uggs in the traditional sense.
The most biker like are the grandle (I think)

Yes they do, they had some with good discounts on shoeaholics last week. I've got a pair of biker style ones can't remember the name though.

Thanks for the links but the ankle part looks too skinny like most other biker style boots . I like the chunkiness of uggs , especially the cardy ones . My legs are like upside down cones blushblush I need evened out gringringrin

These leather Uggs are thicker round the ankle than the other 2 styles mentioned.

The ugh Kensington are quite wide at the top .. Smaller fitting so don't size down as with the sheepskin

I bought these last year and they're amazing! They're mens so they're really chunky but I have wide feet. I'm an 18 too and these are an and will last forever

My mate has the Kensington and they're definately not skinny around the ankle. Very chunky looking. Much tighter around the foot, I've tried them on.

I have Kensingtons and they are so hard to get on and off. I must ebay mine.

have you looked at EMU? I really prefer them to Ugg. They have proper supportive/ non slippery soles and also do waterproof boots which in my mind is a major drawback of Uggs. lots of different styles.

those are biker style OP?
