And downright Fugly... to boot!

Nothing like having a great pair of slippers! Thank you for the recommendation, Mike.

Recently my hairdresser complimented me on my shoes. She was surprised when I said they were my bedroom slippers. 😁

Agreed these are nice slippers. Had a pair last for five or so years. Sold out now, and for a number of years, even from Ugg. Had to get something different the last time.

Ugg is an Australian company. They have made sheepskin footwear for decades. Their name was appropriated by an American company and American courts didn't protect the subsequent legal action from Australia. On principle, I wouldn't buy anything from Ugg or UGG unless it is from the original Australian company.

Hi.

Oh dear, I think you need to look up bogan... :-)

Peace and seasonal teasing,
Dean

As UGG vendors spammed my blog for years, I have vowed to never buy *any* of their products.

But the slippers look appealing. Might get a pair from just another brand.

These are my fav's: https://glerups.ca/

These wool slippers made by a Canadian company keep your feet toasty warm. I like the boots, which also care for your ankles. Mine are now 5 years old and don't really show any sign of wear. Available as shoes or boots, without without rubber soles!

It's actually worse than this. Ugg is a generic Australian term for footwear made from sheepskin. Just known as ugg boots and many Australian firms made and sold them. Until Deckers, a US company, licenced the name, and began sueing the pants off anyone, world wide, who dared continue using the term. And you wonder why the yankee has a bad name in some parts. https://9now.nine.com.au/a-current-affair/aussie-ugg-boot-maker-eddie-oygur-facing-bankruptcy-after-us-trademark-battle-loss/
