I really really need some comfy warm ankle boots - the only ones I can find that even half fit this description are Black Bailey Bow UGGs. But they are FUGLY! Aren't they? Would I be mad to spend £180 on some ugly boots?

I need ankle boot suggestions please !!

I love my half height brown Uggs. Wear them with skinnies and all types of jeans.

Are they worth the price tag? I really like them but don't know if I can justify the price- especially when I'm due DC3 in January!

I ignored Uggs for years then caved and bought a pair of ankle Bailey Buttons last year. They're incredibly comfortable and like wearing outdoor slippers. This year I got some calf length waterproof biker style ones and again they're so warm and comfortable. Not the type of boots to go hill walking in but great for slipping on and slouching around town in.

I have an embarrassing number of chunky comfortable boots blush Uggs fugly? If they are I think they're such a winter classic now that it doesn't matter, people of all ages wear them around here.

If you're worried about the cost v usefulness balance it may be worth looking at the more water resistant ones for versatility. My Bailey buttons would be useless in anything more than a very quick shower.

I have 5 pairs and absolutely love them, 2 have lasted for years. I'd highly recommend them.

I too avoided Uggs for years and could never have imagined buying a pair but I went forba pair of waterproof biker ones this year (poss the same one as Krampus) and oh my lordy they are the warmest, most comfortable boots I've ever had. They look great and I LOVE them!

Try Celtic&co miles better than Ugg, can get them resoled too.

Ahh OP you are a breath of fresh air. Tbh I came here to ask how you could put a question about UGGs onto the style and Beaty board as they do not fit the criteria. But yes the are comfy and practical .

I am also an Ugg avoider, but I have recently came across these and I am seriously considering purchasing them.
What do you think? I need some opinions before spending so much money!

I love my Uggs. I have had Kensingtons for years and now I get a new pair of biker style waterproof ones every year. And just live in them for the school run, slopping about shopping etc

This year I got these:

And have happily lived in them ever since.

Krampus Tue 17-Nov-15 20:27:43

whatamess these are the ones I got

I had a struggle getting them on the first time but soo as my foot slipped in they were great and I havent had to break them in at all. They're been getting easier to get on and off the more I wear them.Very ki d,y sent e a 20% of all shoes and boots which made them a whole lot cheaper.

Krampus Tue 17-Nov-15 20:30:30

What about any of these?

Wotsitsareafterme Tue 17-Nov-15 20:33:27

The ugg bikers are lush I'm very envious.
Uggs have pros and cons
they are incredibly comfy and do last a long time - the soles do not wear down like cheaper imitations. They look great with leggings or skinnies or tights IMO.
However the standard sheepskin boots are not waterproof by any stretch of the imagination and will stain with rainwater even after protector spray.
I've always had uggs but this year I really want something more weatherproof

Krampus Tue 17-Nov-15 20:34:35

Posted too soon. They're both shorter than the calf heigh and water resistant or water proof.

Krampus Tue 17-Nov-15 20:37:51

Another ankle waterproof pair

I love my Uggs, couldn't care less what anyone else thinks of them, they keep my feet warm! I'm on my third pair.

Krampus omg I love them!!!

Wotsitsareafterme Tue 17-Nov-15 21:43:01

Why have I never shopped Barbour before? They are quite reasonable too I love the fold over boots I'm really tempted to order them

I bought the Ugg 'Grandle' waterproof biker boot style from M and M Direct for 90 quid. They are so warm I have to carry a pair of ballet pumps in my handbag for when I go indoors. I love the furry lining and how cosy they are.

RonaldMcDonald Tue 17-Nov-15 21:47:33

Uggs should only be worn indoors as slippers
No to outside horror

TheoriginalLEM Tue 17-Nov-15 21:55:10

I have a pair of Chaney's i paid £80 online on the tReds sale and i LOVE them. Soooo comfy.
