Today I got UGGs. You’re either 1.) Horribly disgusted, 2.) Interested because they’re cute or 3.) Happy for me cuz I’M HAPPY baybay!
Story? My mom bought me River Island Heeled boots for this semester and although pricy, I can’t wear them. I hate heels actually, they hurt, hurt hurt. I then went to SEED and got some suede leather boots but they hurt, so injured Roseanne rang up her Dad to see if she could get sheepskin ones and with a bit of hesitation when I mentioned the price, he replied with the usual “ok, if they’re going to last long, go ahead”. So here I am with a haul.
But prior to all investments as usual, I did a little research. You’re probably familiar with UGGS from UGGs Australia, and perhaps are naive enough to think that any brand except those from UGGs Australia are fake. Well honey, you are wrong. UGGs are a type of shoe, they are sheepskin shoes made in Australia and they have been around for hundreds of years. UGGs Australia (which is actually and American Company) tried to make all the Australians out of business by trying to claim the right to take the word UGGs and they failed miserably. And Guess what? UGGs Australia isn’t an Australian company, they are American and guess where they make their UGGs? CHINA. So how is it that the people shouting that UGGS made in Australia by Australian companies are FAKE and the right..the oh..American one who is making their UGGs in China are REAL? Makes no sense? I concur. And they’re ripping you off $300 a pop. But due to mass marketing and clever consumer hypnotism (lol), they managed to capture the American market via celebrities like Hilary Duff who are seen sporting uggs with skinny jeans, a Starbucks caramel soy latte ..or in this case a small dog and whatever else companies have chosen to send them right before the paparazzi takes a picture.
So, in effort to boycott this company, I avoided UGGs Australia and searched for Australian companies with real sheepskin and handmade quality UGGs. I was walking around and spotted The UGG Shop, made by Urban UGG Co. (NOTE THIS WAS NOT IN NO WAY A SPONSORED REVIEW. I BOUGHT THESE BABIES FOREELS, AND NO ONE TOLD ME TO WRITE THIS POST :) KAY THANKS).
So, today I hobbled back there with my feet injured from ex-boots and got this:
Just a teaser.
Cuties. I know, black? Say what? but I think they look better than the chocolate and I wanted something different.
yes, you are so soft.
They just make you want to squish your toes. I need to go to a consult, might update later but bye!
So I walked all the way to college and back in these and seriously it felt like the Sahara Desert was having a little party in there while the rest of my body was stuck in Antartica. Serious warmth. Which..is good and bad. If Australia felt like Russia then maybe. Maybe. But it’s not Russia. I think it will be more tolerable when winter really does swing by…soon. *Looks up* Right about now would be good! Melbourne weather is so bloody unpredictable. And I’m not used to chunky monkey shoes so it felt kind of clunky but I’ll get used to it! When I took off the UGGs, this is what happened:[I inserted my foot here, but thought it wasn’t necessary.] BASICALLY, the dye transferred onto my foot and now i’m turning into a black sheep..feet wise. :/ Not so great if you wanted to try out new footwear when you’re shopping. Ew.
But, overall, they are so soft. So soft they make me wanna wear them indoors, outdoors, anydoors. So squishy.
