The Ultimate UGG Buyer’s Guide and Care Guide

Everyone owns a pair of UGG boots, whether you bought the knee-high style many moons ago or managed to get your hands on the trending pair of ultra minis last winter. They have become the go-to investment for that easy, everyday dressing, that you can wear inside your home, out running errands, to the office and more.

With a huge resurgence in the last couple of years, the short styles such as the Ulta Mini’s and the Tasman were pretty much impossible to get your hands on last year. So, in preparation to get ahead of the curve, we have pulled together a UGG style and care guide so you can find your perfect pair early and freshening up in time your old pair in time for winter.

Styling UGG boots

1. Styling with your wardrobe 

UGG boots are incredibly versatile and can be worn with so many autumn/winter wardrobe staples. From jeans, joggers, skirts and dresses, they have become the go-to winter boot. They even look great when worn with a tailored suit or blazer, the mix of smart and causal gives a really well-put-together look.

2. Layering for warmth

Make the most of your UGGs in colder weather perfect for your heavy outerwear jackets and layering staples. Combine your boots with cosy socks or thermal leggings to give it that cute chunky look and try adding a thick scarf, a beanie, or a statement bag to take it up a notch.

3. Choosing the right pair 

Find the right style but also the right colour for you. You want it to lend itself to your a lot of outfits in wardrobe. The best-selling style is the Chestnut colourway which brings a nice warmth the any outfit. This season the burnt cedar and burnt olive are close behind with people opting for a much more earthy and neutral colour palette.

Essential UGG Care Tips

1. Regular Cleaning

Keeping your UGGs clean is paramount in maintaining their appearance and durability. Use a soft brush or sponge to remove dirt and debris. For more stubborn stains, a mixture of water and mild detergent can be used with gentle scrubbing.

2. Proper Drying

Avoid exposing your UGGs to direct heat sources like radiators or sunlight. Instead, let them air dry in a cool, shaded area. Stuff them with crumpled paper to help them maintain their shape.

3. Waterproofing

Invest in a quality suede and sheepskin protector spray. Apply it to your UGGs to create a protective barrier against moisture, stains, and spills. Be sure to reapply regularly, especially before the wetter seasons.

4. Storage Matters

During the off-season, store your UGGs in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use a breathable storage bag or box to prevent dust accumulation while allowing air circulation.

5. Professional Cleaning and Repair

If your UGGs have seen better days, consider professional cleaning and repair services. They have the expertise and tools to restore your boots to their former glory.

By following these style and care tips, your UGGs not only keep you warm but also look the part too. With the right attention and maintenance, your UGGs will be your go-to winter footwear season after season.

Remember, a well-loved pair of UGGs is not just a fashion statement; it’s an investment in comfort and style that can last for years to come.

How to clean your UGG boots

Sheepskin can give you the cleaning fear, but they’re easily spruced up at home with a little care.

  1. Protect

There’s nothing worse than accidental stains spoiling the aesthetic of your UGGs, so make sure to use a sheepskin protector on your boots to protect against marks.

2. Brush

If your UGG boots are looking a little tired, give them some loving with a suede brush. Simply brush the fibres of the boots in one direction to ensure a uniform, sleek and soft look.

3. Clean

If possible, you want to avoid needing to clean your UGG by doing the above, but if you do need to give them a full clean:

  • Place your UGGs in a laundry bag and put them into the machine with sheets or towels to soften the spin.
  • Only use perfume and dye-free detergent and put them on a cold, delicate setting.
  • As soon as the cycle is over, take them out of the machine. Don’t let them sit in the drum.
  • Use your hands to fluff up the insides and set aside to air dry, coming back regularly to give the insides a fluff.

Do UGG just make sheepskin boots?

No! UGG offer some great styles including Chelsea boots, trainers, snow boots and more from both men and women. The good thing about buying any UGG-branded shoe is you know there won’t be any compromise on the quality of the design, which is key, especially through the winter months. You don’t want any of the element’s getting to your feet, whether that’s snow, rain or shine.

UGG Slippers

How should UGG slippers fit?

UGG are also heavily renowned for their iconic slippers and like their boots, they are supposed to fit well and snug to your foot. Slippers with a heeled back should be easy to put on and remove and your toes should almost be touching the end but not too loose that they fall off as you walk. For slippers without a back, they should surround the front end of your foot so well that when walking,  no effort is needed to keep them in place.

  1. True to Size: In general, UGG slippers tend to fit true to size. This means that if you typically wear a size 8 in most shoes, a size 8 UGG slipper should fit you comfortably.
  2. Room for Socks: If you plan on wearing socks with your UGG slippers, you may want to consider ordering a half size up. This will ensure that there’s enough room for both your foot and a pair of cosy socks.
  3. Snug at First: When you first try on a pair of UGG slippers, they might feel a bit snug. This is normal as the plush lining will compress and mould to the shape of your foot over time.
  4. Heel Position: The heel of the slipper should sit comfortably against the back of your foot without any excessive slipping or rubbing. It should provide a secure fit without feeling too tight.
  5. Toe Space: There should be some space between your longest toe and the front of the slipper. Your toes should not be pressed against the front, but they also shouldn’t be swimming in excess space.
  6. Arch Support: UGG slippers are known for their excellent arch support. They should cradle your foot comfortably, providing support and cushioning.
  7. Width Considerations: UGG slippers come in various styles, some of which may have a wider or narrower fit. Be sure to check the specific style’s description for any width considerations.
