That’s it, Kylie and Kendall Jenner are officially Ugg addicts, as they professed after hitting the brand’s New York flagship store, and leaving with fresh supplies of the iconic boots. “It’s practically our LA uniform,” says Kylie, coming clean with her obsession, which means, yes, it looks like having a permanent shag carpet under your feet is officially popular, all over again.
Take a lucid trip back to the 2000s, and you’ll find that our addled brains, and that of celebrities like Paris Hilton and Lauren Conrad, actually found these bulky footwear achingly trendy. These days, getting your Uggs fix is familiar – the soft sheepskin alone will give you a pleasurable high – though now in a slimmer and sleeker silhouette, with added arch support, due to the arrival of the Classic Slim collection. Don’t expect a psychedelic experience because the shoes come in crowd-favourite shades of navy and chestnut, though that immeasurable joy of having them match your every casual outfit? We can certainly roll with that.
UGG Classic Slim Collection, priced from $320 for the Kristin to $520 for the Kara, available at UGG stores, including Ngee Ann City, #B1-51. uggaustralia.com
