Wearing boots

I am collaborating with the Spanish blog Yuanfang Magazine. As they use Spanish, here you have another of my articles for them translated into English. You can read the Spanish version here. I hope you like it! 🙂

WEARING BOOTS

The UGG boots are unisex boots made of sheepskin double-sided with fleece inside, tanning outside and usually synthetic sole. The origin of this type of boot goes back to Australia or New Zealand long before the existence of the brand registered with this name, even if they were who made ​​them known. And by known I mean that it has been more than ten years ago that they are popular and a basic in the styles of many celebrities.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of this type of boot. I speak only from a subjective point of view, since I’ve never tried it, but certainly I’m not a passionate of their design and some stylistic combinations (such as worn with summer dress), that I do not think they are very stylistic at all.

This introduction is because UGG boots, as other items that are trend, were soon, and continue to be, imitated and forged.

Many Taiwanese girls like this kind of boot, but not everyone wants or can afford to buy a real UGG, whose price is usually from $135. Thus, although there is an official store and several shopping centers where you can buy them in Taipei, imitations are also a star product in shoe stores and night markets.

In Taiwan, the fakes are not allowed, but the imitations yes. This makes that the designs or the prints of the imitations sometimes are totally different from the real ones. From boots in other colors to boots with stars, rhinestones and studs. Here you have some examples seen in the streets and markets of Taipei:

    They seem quite cozy but I can't get over how unattractive Uggs look. I didn't think they'd be popular in Taiwan since it's so warm there.

    Since it is snowing here today, guess what boots I have on? Yep, Ugg boots! They are easy to put on, comfortable to run errands and so warm! I wouldn't wear them for anything fancy, but for daytime, they really are perfect 🙂

    i've always fancied the ugg boots. but i think style-wise, they're not always considered stylish… comfy though, which is what i love.
    great article!
