Love them or loathe them, Ugg boots have become as much a part of winter style as hats, scarves and sequinned jumpers (believe it or not, they’ve been around for 38 years). It’s no wonder, then, that the announcement that manufacture of their ‘Classic’ boot style has been discontinued has sent shockwaves through the retail industry. Fear not, though, because the Ugg Classic II is virtually identical in appearance.
So what’s the big deal? Well, they’re (slightly) more expensive, to start with, but they’ll also look, feel and function better for longer. Ugg Classic II boots are treated with a special water and stain-repelling finish and equipped with Treadlite soles, which provide greater cushioning as well as increased durability and traction on both wet and dry surfaces. If we’re blessed with a white Christmas, you’ll be glad you put a pair on your list…
