My mum gave me some Ugg boots she’d bought for herself but then didn’t like about ten years ago, which I wore in the house as slippers. They gave up the ghost back at Easter, and I’m after a replacement now it’s getting colder. I want cosy sheepskin, mid-calf or ankle boot length, with a sole I can go in and out to the garden with, but I am loathed to pay Ugg prices for something which will never be worn further than the corner shop at a push. Any ideas?
Thanks - I will check out Fat Face, and I hadn’t thought of TKM. I think I wore the Uggs as far as the wee shop twice in ten years, but I do want to be able to go into the garden, out with the bins etc.
TKMAXx - I got some for £30-£40, seem to be the same price as faux but real sheepskin, I can’t remember the brand but they are perfect for slippers. When I bought mine a while ago there was a large range in offer.
I second the Costco sheepskin boots. They are real sheepskin and look identical to Ugg boots. Also come in 3 colours: black, grey and chestnut. Cost about £30 and mine have lasted 3 winters so far and are still in good condition. I do have 2 pairs of real Uggs and apart from the labelling there really isn’t any difference. Great bargain!
Thank you so much for all the suggestions. I’ve now ordered the Costco version which look perfect - sturdy enough to nip out to the garden in, decent enough to look presentable if anyone comes to the door, and not too £££. Hopefully nice and cosy too!
