Shoes aren’t easy gifts to give (and in some cultures/traditions, they are even seen as “unlucky” when given as gifts), but I sometimes take that risk with UGG boots, because they do well in cold weather and may be a surprise hit with those on your gift list who value comfort but who may have (unfairly) maligned UGG-branded footwear in the past.
I want to highlight three perennial bestsellers for UGG in this post, but you can find more detailed reviews below:
All three shoes will do well in cold but dry conditions, but as they are not waterproof, avoid wearing them around slush and puddles. They also work well as indoor shoes for those who find fuzzy slippers a touch too casual.
If you can’t decide among these three boots, I’d recommend the Neumel Boot if you are looking for a shoe that can be worn to work as a business casual option; the Diara Booties for those who are missing a pair of work-from-home shoes that won’t feel out of place at after-school pickup; and the Ultra Mini Classic Boots if you are someone who is always in a rush.
You can find the the UGG Neumel Boot at Amazon, Backcountry, Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s, Journeys, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, UGG (available in a dizzying eight colorways), Victoria’s Secret, Walmart, and Zappos.
And buy the UGG Classic Ultra Mini Boot at Amazon, Anthropologie, Backcountry, Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s, eBay, Farfetch, Foot Locker, Journeys, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, UGG, Urban Outfitters, Victoria’s Secret, Walmart, and Zappos.
