UGG Alternatives: Let It Snow!

Ugg Alternatives

Lately my posts have been centered around a ski trip I just took. I absolutely hate UGGs and refuse to wear them, whether it’s 90 degrees outside (what are those women thinking??) or snowing. But falling on icy roads in mountain-high heels? Not so fun. There has to be another way, and that is the rubber/lug sole route! I like a little height, though, so a shearling-lined boot with a tiny heel like this Fendi (on NET-A-PORTER for $1,395) is just what a Snob needs in snow! See which of Nordstrom’s Frugal-friendly UGG alternatives can also help you avert the dreaded boot…

Ugg Alternatives

Frye Veronica Slouch Boot ($327.95):icon Frye boots are known for durability and great tread, which are pretty much the most important features of a boot for inclement weather. To replace the shearling lining, wear a really thick boot sock.

Ugg Alternatives

Hinge Devin Boot ($149.95):icon For a less rugged, more riding boot look, try this sleek, buckled style. Important to note – it has absolutely no tread, so don’t even think of stepping out on ice with these.

Ugg Alternatives

DV by Dolce Vita Krynn Bootie ($88.95):icon If you refuse to go anywhere (even to the slopes!) without a pair of heels on, then give these hidden 2 inch wedges from DV a winter wonderland whirl.

  1. I’m a huge fan of all things Frye as my mom would buy me Frye as a girl and I still love it today! (I’m with you, I’m not an ugg fan either. Bearpaw always makes a great ‘uggternative’ boot!)

  2. They may not be the most fashionable choice, but when there’s a foot of snow, or the temps dip down below zero, nothing keeps my feet warmer and drier than a pair of UGGs. You can’t beat the price either! I can’t see spending $1300 for something you’re going to wear in snow and ice and end up covered with salt!
