When Whooga wrote to me and asked if I would like to critique a pair of their ugg boots, my initial reaction was to laugh out loud.
I wondered firstly if they read the blog, and secondly if they thought I was seriously the right candidate for the job.
Michael who I spoke to however was charming and said, ‘Hey, be completely honest, but for someone who lives in heels, we think you’ll like them.’
I liked the fact that they weren’t precious about the brand and said that I could write what ever I liked about the product they were going to send.I think it goes without saying that I don’t wear ugg boots and I don’t wear tracksuits. That’s not to say I don’t wear jumpers, leggings, socks, slippers, or own an inordinate amount of colour coordinated gym gear.
But ugg boots- no.
All these years however that I have ridiculed how ugly they are, I now realise why some women would forgo wearing normal shoes for the warmth and comfort they provide.
I still struggle with how unattractive they are, but when I get home of an evening I find myself actually looking forward to putting them on. It's like wearing a warm bath on your feet, heaven.
