Saying UGGs have a cult following would be an understatement. Millions of people anticipate the fall and winter weather just so they can pull them out of the box after wearing sandals and sneakers all summer long. While UGGs are definitely comfy, the truth is that they’re pretty expensive — some would even say overpriced. With this in mind, hundreds of shoppers have taken to Amazon to find the perfect UGG alternative, and they hit the jackpot with the DREAM PAIRS Women’s Winter Snow Boot.
For reference, the No. 1 best-selling UGG Women’s Classic Mini II Winter Boot currently retails for $160. However, this almost identical DREAM PAIRS is over $100 cheaper, and shoppers say they feel just as toasty in these as they do in their pricey UGG boots.
This best-selling UGG alternative comes in five colors (black, brown, camel, grey and black/metal), and sizes range from 5 to 12. They also have a soft faux fur lining that runs throughout the boot. This gives them a fluffy and fuzzy all-around bed for your feet, just like the original UGG Classic Mini boots.
They also have a classic round-toe design that’s treated with water and stain-repellent technology, so they’re safe to wear in the harsh elements. The outside of the boot is suede fiber material to increase richness and durability.
Shoppers love that they’re slip-resistant thanks to their flexible and durable TPR outsole, making them perfect for wearing on icy winter sidewalks.
Amazon reviewers say these are the best UGG alternatives anywhere but recommend sizing down by a half size since they run slightly larger than the original UGGs.
