Nineties and noughties fashion staple brand Ugg present the boots people love to hate – but really, we all own a pair, because what’s comfier and more versatile in cold weather? Nothing!
Thought by many to be an Australian company (after all, it was called Ugg Australia for many years), Ugg is actually an American footwear firm and despite the boots no longer being the celebrity staple they were, most of us have a pair in the shoe rack, and they’re easy, comfy wear for winter.
We’ve been scouring ugg.com to see what are the best buys for students, but remember to check out our guide page for the latest on discounts, voucher codes and sales alerts which could save you more.
TOP STUDENT BUY: CLASSIC SHORT II BOOT – £165
The classic boot that we all recognise Ugg for, the short is the slightly lower version of an Ugg that’s new and improved. Keeping the style as it has always been, the latest boot model includes water-resistance and lightweight soles. The twin-face of suede and sheepskin has been pre-treated to repel water and the overlock stitch on the outer gives a reinforcement so that no moisture can get in! Bound in nylon, the Short II Boot is 8-inches in height, so can keep you warm and dry in all weathers.GET STUDENT DISCOUNT >
TOP STUDENT BUY: FLUFF YEAH LOGO SLIDER – £100
OK, so this does seem a bit self-indulgent – but sliders have been THE in shoe for at least a year now, and these are the ultimate model. Soft sheepskin and real fur make these beautifully soft and the chunky Ugg-graphic strap means that no one will doubt where you got from them! The platform is made of lightweight material so that your foot doesn’t overheat (because, duh, who wants sweaty fur?!), and a rubber outsole protects it on the bottom. You may wish to think twice about wearing them outside, but hey, they are fabulous, and you won’t own a more statement shoe in your rack!
TOP STUDENT BUY: DANNIE SHEEPSKIN BACKPACK – £275
This is a premium price point sure, but ideal to ask for as a present! This roomy rucksack is crafted in suede, sheepskin and wool, and comes in the signature Ugg chestnut colour we all so know and love. A thick polyester jacquard lining protects the inside, and, as with all designer bags (yes, this counts as one!), it comes with a dust bag so you can keep the exterior looking tip-top at all times too. The Dannie backpack is practical and stylish, so perfect for weekends away, trips back home and for fitting all your books inside.GET STUDENT DISCOUNT >
