Oh, the HUMANITY!!!!
Okay, first - I need to differentiate UGGS and Ugg boots. Mainly to show off, but it also makes an important point. As I recently learned, there are different types of ugg boots. An ugg boot is a STYLE of sheepskin boot. We tend to think of UGG brand as uggs. It's a popular brand (after making it to Oprah's list) of sheepskin boot, but it is NOT the only Ugg boot out there. Just like Ford and BMW are types of cars, so are UGG and Whooga types of high quality sheepskin boots. We AREN'T talkin' knock offs here. They are simply different ugg boot companies making similar caliber, genuine sheepskin ugg-style boots. And, in my humble opinion, the most popular brand, or most expensive brand is not always the best. Do your homework!
I found one brand that IS one of the best. High quality, great look, highest grade merino sheepskin: Soft, comfy, durable. It's not the UGG... It's a Whooga Ugg.
So Whatsa Whooga? If you want the look of the classic Ugg boot AND the comfort AND the durability, the Whooga is the way to go. Knock off boots are NOT 100% high quality sheepskin and as a result your feet will sweat and itch. Spend a little less than you would for UGGS (which by the way, are NOT very durable, and it's not just ME talkin' here) and get a boot identical in LOOK and comfort and BETTER in durability. This is not the time to go knock-off or cheap! Yes, faux sheepskin may cost you less, but honestly only by 20 or 30 bucks. And they aren't NEARLY as comfy. Real, quality sheepskin wraps your foot in a tiny slice of heaven. Like you're walking on a warm fuzzy cloud. Like you were swaddling it in a baby blanket of sheer bliss and that keeps your feet at JUST the right temperature in any weather... *sigh*
Whoogas. That's what I'M talkin' about folks. Cute. Quality. Affordability. NOT a knock off, but a high caliber product that will withstand more than 12 months of wear before ripping, tearing, fraying and loosing its sole (oh yes, UGG - I'm talkin' to YOU). Whoogas have made my tootsies happy. I'm officially spreading the word.
*Though I did receive a pair of Whooga Uggs in exchange for a product review, I do review products honestly. I received no other compensation for this post and was only asked to give my honest review of this product.
