I bought my first pair of Uggs (short classic in a tan colour) when we were on honeymoon in America. I knew I'd be able to get them for a good price there due to the exchange rate (there's no denying that Uggs are pricey). I bought them in Macys in San Francisco. They travelled through 9 different states with us and then came back on the plane, keeping my feet lovely and snugg. I still have them now and still wear them. I have looked after them very well and they are still in good condition. I don't think I could ever part with them due to where they came from and where they've been....
Whilst I love my classic Uggs, it has to be said that they don't fair well in the rain. I don't wear them in the rain at all. If it even looks like it might rain, I won't put them on. Even though they don't go in the rain at all, I still keep them protected with sheepskin protector. Just in case! However, I've always lusted after a pair of Ugg like boots that would keep my feet toasty but that I wouldn't have to worry about (so much) in the rain... I then discovered the Kensington Uggs on Cloggs.co.uk. Now, these are leather boots, not suede and as such, won't go sopping wet in the rain. I don't suppose you could call them "waterproof" exactly. They are leather and we all know leather can stain and be affected by water, buuuuuuuuuuuuut they are infinitely more practical that classic suede Uggs. You can even polish them if you want to make them repel water!

I'd read online that you should by the size up from your normal size, but I didn't because in my experience when you wear Uggs, the wool inside gets flattened down over time, moulding to your feet and if you buy the next size up, within a couple of weeks you could have a saggy wobbly pair of boots. I'm glad I stuck with this choice because when they arrived on Monday and I slipped them on, they were perfect. They went on like a dream, I didn't have to yank and pull to get them on. They are firmer and hold their shape better than classic Uggs due to the leather being stronger. I've already worn them out in the rain and they coped well. I think you'll be seeing a lot of these boots on my blog from now on!!
I couldn't be happier with my new boots!! I have to say I'm very happy with the customer service I received from Cloggs as well, I've used them quite a few times over the last few years and I've always been pleased. My packages come quickly, everything is well packaged. Most of all though, they have great prices. Their Ugg boots are often a good £20-£25 cheaper than on other sites and they have free postage which helps.
