If you follow a handful of fashion influencers on Instagram then chances are you’ll have spotted UGG boots creeping back onto the scene – we know, we know, we never thought we’d see the day! And now John Lewis have revealed some stats that show just how frenzied we’ve gone for the noughties footwear favourite.
Official stats from the department store show that sales of UGG boots are up a whopping 1450% on the year before. And the most popular style? The Ultra Mini, of course, which has seen sales shoot up 500% on last Jan.
Listen, having prioritised loungewear above all else in our wardrobe these past two years, is it really any shock we’ve reverted back to the boots that feel like soft, beautiful kittens are sleeping at your feet? No, no it’s not.
Whilst we’ve spotted all shades of UGGs gracing our social feeds over the past week, it’s the chestnut ones that seem most popular, as spied on the likes of Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber.
The Ultra Mini UGGs retail at £125 a pair, but are currently sold out in the brown shade on the official website, as well as Office and John Lewis.
How to style them? With your tracksuit, with leggings or with blue, black or cream jeans. The perfect shoe to swing to your in-laws for a Sunday roast in or to nip out on an emergency 8pm Tesco Express chocolate run.
Now all we need is Jack Wills hoodies to make a comeback and it’s basically like we’re back at sixth form…
