I adore my UGGs. I have three pairs now and I love them all – but they can be super tricky to buy, due to their sizing.
Most UGGs do not come in half sizes, so ordering can be a mystery. If you can, go into a store that sells the style you want and try them on to get an idea of the best fit. Remember that UGGs will fit snug at first, but that’s all the shearling wool inside. They are designed to mold to the shape of your feet, so you should expect them to be snug. That’s not to say that they should feel uncomfortable! Once the sheepskin has molded to the shape of your feet they should almost feel like a second skin. It will pack down with wear. They also stretch out a bit, but not too much, so if your toes are super cramped, you may need to go up a size.
I wear an 8½, and two of my UGGS (slippers and traditional tall boots) are a size 8. There were a bit snug at first, but as the shearling has packed down, they now fit quite comfortably. I originally got a 9 in the slippers, but after wearing them around the house for an hour or so, I noticed that they were slipping off my heels. The smaller size was definitely for me – but if you wanted to wear socks with your slippers, going larger would be a good idea. With boots, you have a bit more leeway, since they are less likely to fall off! But I still found that the smaller size was more comfortable for me.
Now if you have small feet, you’re in luck! A kids’ size 6 is a womens’ 5! You can get the same great styles for a big cheaper price! But remember – while I am all about saving money – there is no substitute for UGGs! UGG® Australia offer the best quality, in my opinion. They have a strong heel that will not buckle, sheepskin outer to keep your feet dry, luxurious fleece to keep your toes warm and resist odors and they are strong, durable and designed to last. Once you’ve owned a pair of UGGs Australia, you will never want to go back!
