ugg bailey boots like boots that are as comfortable well
My wife bought 2 pairs of genuine UGG boots in the UGG store in Queen Street, Brisbane, Australia, just across Victoria Bridge from Southbank, around 9 or 10 years back, she’s unsure, but she vaguely recalls they were around 100 per pair, which at today’s exchange rate would be about US $131 per pair.
I also bought a pair for my granddaughter, who was around 4 or 5 then, she was like a dog with two tails, wanted to wear them all day long, and go to bed in them, she was royally ped when she grew too big for them.
Although she’ll occasionally look in an outlet store, she still lives in the past a bit, she used to say, “I could have married a lawyer, but I married a licenced London taxi driver so that I’d never need to look in a thrift store!
I had a pair of Uggs bought used, and wore them all winter for some five more years. When the leather tore, it was time to replace them and I found Bearpaw. I couldn’t afford Uggs. But I wear my Bearpaw boots all winter. They start out shiny and new and become comfortable looking after the first month or so. But I can’t stand to get my feet cold, and when its really cold mid winter I use the foot warmers you shake and then put in your boots to fight off the bare wood floor.
I’ve gotten two years wear, looking nice, but get at least one. I keep the new pair for going out somewhere, while sticking with the slightly stretched Bearpaw from the year before with fluffy socks. They get me through the cold weather, and going outside where they might get wet. And when they get stretched a bit too much, and the stitching starts to fail, they’re yard boots. So I get a good five years at least out of each.
What I’d love to find is a winter boot like the Uggs and Bearpaw with a good warm lining, but which go all the way up to the knees. There’s this gap of a few inches where cold air can get in just below the knees which could be a few inches higher. Last pair they sent a knitted extention to wear at the top of the boots which works nice.
My bearpaws are winter boots, slippers, snow boots, yard boots, cleaning up boots, just sitting around warm boots, and I get at least five years wear of some sort,
except for one pair which had a cut and they were replaced.
