Ugg Boots were all the rage in the early 2000’s. I remember getting my first pair of short boots in 2006 thinking I was the coolest girl in school. While they may have fallen out of fashion, I never stopped wearing my Uggs. Almost 20 years later I’m still rocking a pair of my Uggs and have officially lived long enough to see them come back in style. Here is my review of my beloved Ugg boots and which styles are on trend for 2022.

I got my first pair of Ugg boots back in 2006. They were the short boots in the color sand. I wore these boots to death, literally because they fell apart on me! Not long after I got my second pair, this time a tall boot in the color chestnut. This was by far the most popular color of these boots back in the early 2000’s. Finally I got a third pair, another tall boot in the chocolate color. The chocolate boots are the only ones I still have, and wear to this day. I literally walked the soles off my chestnut pair last year and had to sadly part with them. Considering they were 15 years old, I’d say they had a good run.
As far as quality is concerned, these boots pass the test. If properly cared for Ugg boots could easily last you 20 years. To be honest I didn’t look after my boots the way I should have. I wore my boots in the rain, and in the snow. I never cleaned the boots or waterproofed them to help prevent damage. Had I treated my boots better I’m sure I’d still have all 3 pairs of my original boots.
What to Know About Uggs
One thing most people don’t seem to know about Ugg boots is that you’re supposed to wear them barefoot! The shearling lining actually works to naturally regulate the temperature inside the boots. This way your feet stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. That’s why we used to see so many celebs wearing them in southern California back in the day.
Ugg boots run true to size. I wear a size 8 and all of my boots have been an 8. One thing I wish I knew before I tossed my chestnut Uggs last year is that you can send them out to get repaired and refreshed. The program is called UggRenew and even if you didn’t purchase your boots directly from Ugg you can still send them in. I’m seriously considering sending in my chocolate pair for some much needed TLC!
We’re seeing Ugg boots come back in a big way this year. Personally I never stopped wearing them, but I’m glad I’m back on trend haha. The ultra mini boots are the most popular style I’m seeing. I think these are so cute! My only concern is that my ankles would get cold wearing these, but I love how they look paired with leggings.
