I thought I only wanted fancy “bling” UGGs, but Spring is coming and I didn’t want to stop wearing mine, so I noticed the Ultra Mini. While it still covers my foot enough to not get wet if I step in a melting snow puddle, it looks like a shoe, and as easy to put on as a slipper. I had to try it. I ordered them in chocolate bomber, dark enough to hide dirt on walks outside. I wondered if I should get chocolate Nappa for greater stain resistance, but stuck with Bomber.
The boots arrived, and I was struck by how thick the wool was. I used some boot wax to buff them, at staff’s suggestion, because there was a slight irregularity in the Bomber pattern (which alarmed me at first but it is simply a natural feature of the leather). Afterward, they were glorious and free of imperfections.
I tried them, and they are truly like walking on clouds in heaven is imagined, even on asphalt, concrete, and through the puddles. I am glad I got the chocolate/cream bomber color combination, because they go with both light and dark outfits, due to the contrasting trim. Looks equally in place with pajamas, business casual pants, and flowy dresses. Also sweats, jeans, and leggings, of course. I don’t know if the UGG waterproofing I added is why, but even the light-colored wool seems to repel snow stains...it must be the wicking property of the wool. I highly recommend the Bomber leather to people in rainy and snowy climates. There is no worry of water-staining it, unlike the Suede UGGs, and they are just as beautiful. What I expected to be my “plain” UGGs are drawing so many compliments. I don’t want to ever take them off. I want to buy another pair, just for the house, but it would be impossible to leave them here!
Note: I am from the US & ordered 1 1/2 sizes down, with perfect results (arrived at through trial and error, and doing the measurements on the sizing chart on this site).
