UGG Classic Boots - A Must for Winter Wear
Living and working in Sandpoint you learn the absolute must for a winter wardrobe. UGG boots the true Classics boot is on everyone’s list. They’ve been around too long to be a trend and are winter footwear must-haves. I did a little investigating to find out the difference between the UGG Classic boots, UGG Ultimate boots and UGG Ultra boots.

How did UGG Australia know 30 years ago that naming their first boot the UGG Classic boots was prescient? Yes, this ubiquitous boot has been around that long and has indeed become a classic in the true sense of the word. Love it or hate it (personally I love it), it’s not a fad and it’s proved that it’s here to stay. The UGG Classic Short boots and UGG Classic Tall boots basic colors are chestnut, chocolate brown, black and sand color. This year some optional colors are two go-with-everything metallics in gold and graphite and a gorgeous chocolate paisley design with patent highlights.

These boots are on every woman’s winter must have list which makes them the perfect, no-brainer Christmas gift. For best selection you have to buy them early in the season because they sell out nationwide.

If you are looking for UGG boots that offer more luxury and comfort then step up to the UGG Ultimate boots or UGG Ultra boots. They are similar looking but with a few differences between them.

First the similarities: they both have sheepskin outer with sheepskin lining, sturdy sole, removable and/or replaceable footbed and pretty decorative braid up the back of the UGG Ultimate Tall Braid boots and the UGG Ultra Tall boots.

Looking at the side profiles, the Ultimate has a slimmer look than the UGG Ultra boots. When trying them on, the Ultimate has a slimmer fit than the Ultra, making the UGG Ultimate boots a better choice if your foot is on the narrow side. Tuck a pair of skinny jeans in them and these are super cute for casual weekend wear. So if you are planning a ski trip this year make certain you come equipped with your favorite UGG boots.
