Thinking about getting a pair of UGG boots? Well, it’s about time! The brand is known and loved for its warm and comfortable footwear, which just so happens to be incredibly stylish as well.
UGGs were made famous in the early 2000s, when Oprah talked about them on her TV show, and purchased more than 350 pairs for everyone in the studio and audience. Since then, you could spot these on lots of celebrities, including both Sarah Jessica Parker and Leonardo DiCaprio.
And, although the brand is best known for their Classic Short Boot, there’s a lot of other UGGs we love. So, let’s take a look at some of their best sellers and see which are the best UGG boots of all time!

Let’s kick things off with UGG’s most rugged pair of boots – the Butte. These are special because they feature a Vibram outsole – something you don’t see on many other UGGs. Vibram outsoles are often seen on boots for climbers and hikers, because of the incredible amounts of grip and traction they provide.
Because of that, the Butte is thebest boot you can get for outdoor adventures. Hiking, climbing, trekking, snowshoeing – no winter adventure is too demanding for these UGGs.
Their uppers are made from full-grain leather, which is entirely waterproof. And the interior of the boots is lined with UGGPure wool that will keep your feet toasty warm. In fact, these boots are rated for cold weather up to -20° Celsius, which is more than enough to get you through the winter.
The Butte just gets better and better. With cushioning foam insoles, these boots are insanely comfortable and supportive. These are actually suitable for people with high arches and flat feet, because they offer excellent arch support. You can’t remove the insoles, but I seriously doubt you would want to do that anyway.
Plus, the wool lining on the insole helps wick away the moisture, allowing the boots to breathe and keeping your feet dry. In addition to that, there’s also an EVA midsole in these, for extra cushioning and support.
The Butte boots by UGG generally run true to size, so you can get them in the size that you usually wear. However, they are not available in half sizes. If you’re usually a half-size, got for the larger size for the best fit. The lining does take up quite a bit of space inside the boots, so they are on the narrow side.
Need an everyday boot that can go with anything in your closet? Then get the UGG Hendren boots. They’re waterproof, warm, insanely comfortable and quite stylish. The side zippers mean that you don’t have to mess around with laces when you’re putting the boots one, making the entire process quick and effortless.
This is also good for those of you with high arches, since it’s much easier to get your foot inside a boot when you have a zipper to work with.
The Hendren boots could be the most comfortable boots you ever buy. They feature Vildona and foam insoles, which feel like you’re walking on two fluffy cushions. Plus, the insoles are lined with UGGPure wool, which keeps your feet warm and allows them to breathe.
Their exterior is made from waterproof leather and suede, and their interior is fully lined with UGGPure wool. In addition to that, the boots feature seam sealed construction that helps them perform really well in wet weather. You can walk through snow, rain and jump through puddles – your feet will stay dry and toasty warm in the UGG Hendren boots.
These feature a Treadlite by UGG outsole, but not the same on you see on the Classic boots. In fact, the outsole on these boots is much more rugged, with with multidirectional lugs for enhanced grip and traction. They perform equally well on dry, wet and icy pavements, but they are not my favorite option for different types of terrain.
The Hendren boots run small, so get them in a full size larger than what you normally wear.
If you like the style of boot that Timberland and CAT are popular for, you will really love the UGG Seton boots. They feature that classic ankle boot exterior, but with the benefit of being incredibly warm. Which is not something you can say for similar boots from other brands. Yes, they will usually feature heavy insulation, but that’s still not going to keep you warm at al times.
Don’t get me wrong – I love my Timberlands, but man my feet sometimes feel like ice blocks in them. You won’t ever get that feeling with the Seton boots, since they have that cozy UGGPure wool lining inside.
These are also much more stylish than similar boots from other brands. CAT ankle boots in particular have that working man look to them. The Seton, on the other hand, is a boot you could easily pair with a suit and you wouldn’t look weird at all. I think that’s mostly due to the leather exterior, which looks very sophisticated.
And which is also waterproof, making these suitable for all sorts of weather conditions. Plus, the Treadlite by UGG outsole is quite rugged, and will keep you stable even on icy terrain. It features multidirectional lugs, for improved grip and traction on different terrain types.
Even the insoles of these boots are top notch. The Vildona and foam insoles are very comfortable and supportive, making these boots suitable even for people with flat feet and high arches. They’re not removable insoles, but I don’t think that will be an issue, considering just how supportive they are.
These boots mostly fit true to size, but they are not available in half sizes. If you are normally between sizes, get these in a larger size for the best fit.
If you want the warmth and comfort of the Classic UGG boots, but without the feminine silhouette, the Harkley boots are what you are looking for. This particular version of the boots is waterproof, thanks to seam sealed construction. There’s another version of this boot which is cheaper, but not waterproof – just be careful that you’re getting the right boots.
These UGGs are made from waterproof full-grain leather that can withstand heavy rain, snow and the occasional puddle. They are ankle boots, so they are quite easy to put on and take off. But they won’t provide you with much warmth upwards of your ankles, so they’re definitely not a great option for knee-deep snow.
On the other hand, they are wonderful for cold winter without snow. The wool lining inside will keep you warm despite the sub-zero temperatures, and the cushioning foam insole will provide you with support in your every step.
Just like the Classic UGG boots, these have a Treadlite outsole. It’s not really rugged and it is a bit slippery, so try to avoid wearing these when there’s lots of ice outside. They are fine for wet pavements, but there’s just not enough traction to keep you stable on icy pavement.
Unfortunately, the insoles in these are not removable. They are lined with UGGPure wool, which is designed to wick away moisture and keep the boots breathable. But if you generally need very supportive footwear, I don’t think these are the best fit for you.
The Harkley boots run small, so you should go at least one size up for the best fit. If you have wide feet or really high arches, consider going up a size and a half.
UGG Hannen are classic lace-up ankle boots. You’ve already seen this silhouette in nearly every brand that sells winter boots. So, why should you get the UGG’s take on the classic leather lace-up boot, and not go for a cheaper option?
Because you won’t find any other pair of similar looking boots that are as comfortable as these UGGs. They have Vildona and foam insoles, which are incredibly soft, comfortable and supportive. The insoles provide lots of cushioning, and really help keep your feet comfortable and rested even after you’ve been wearing them for an entire day.
They’re not just stylish leather boots – these are actually suitable for the hard working man who spends most of the day on his feet. But it doesn’t hurt that these have that classic look that will go nicely with absolutely everything you own.
The exterior of the Hannen boots is waterproof, and their interior is lined with UGGPure wool. There’s wool lining on the insole as well, so that your feet stay warm regardless of the weather outside. The insoles are not removable, but they are really supportive, so the boots are suitable even for people with flat feet and high arches.
But what about the outsoles? They’re Treadlite by UGG outsoles, just like the ones we saw on the Hendren boots. They have deep, multidirectional lugs, which allows them to perform equally well on all sorts of terrain types. From dry concrete to icy hiking trails – the UGG Hannen can handle it all.
These boots run small, so get them in at least half a size larger than what you normally wear. If you wear wide feet, it’s recommended you go a full size up for the best fit.
The Blayre III boots are an excellent choice if you want something that works for both fall and winter. They are very warm, thanks to the wool lining inside. But they’re not insulated, so I wouldn’t recommend them for extreme colds.
The uppers of these boots are made from leather and UGGPure wool. Not only are they waterproof, but also incredibly stylish. These boots will go well with jeans, skirts, dresses and pretty much anything you own, meaning that you can get a lot of value for your money. They’re definitely one of my favorite pair of everyday UGGs!
I also really like that they have a sturdy outsole. It is made from non-slip rubber, and features deep, multidirectional lugs that give you lots of grip and traction. Unlike the Classic UGGs, these aren’t slippery, and will let you walk across icy pavements gracefully. You’ll even have plenty of support, thanks to the soft and comfortable insoles.
So, they’re warm and waterproof – why aren’t they good for winter? Well, there’s the length – you can’t really wear these if there’s a lot of snow on the ground. Yes they are waterproof, but they’re also really short. And the upper parts of the boots are made from wool, which will get wet and could leak inside the boots.
But, if all you want is a warm and stylish everyday boots, I can’t recommend these enough. They usually fit true to size, but you might want to go half a size up if you have wide feet.
The Adirondack boots are proof that UGG makes excellent snow boots, and not just stylish ones. These are waterproof, insulated and stylish, all at the same time. Their uppers are made from leather, which is entirely waterproof.
The boots are lined with 17 mm of wool and feature 200 grams of insulation. Meaning that they will keep you toasty warm even in the dead of winter. In fact, the Adirondack boots are guaranteed to keep you warm in temperatures as low as -32˚ Celsius, which will get you through most winters.
And what’s even more surprising is that these boots are seriously breathable! They allow moisture inside the boot to escape, keeping your feet dry no matter how warm you get.
These are also very versatile. With a rugged, Spider rubber outsole, they will perform equally well on different terrain types. You can expect great grip and traction from these boots, thanks to deep lugs on the outsole.
And they are also really comfortable, with the Imprint by UGG insole. It is quite supportive, and it features wool lining, which keeps your feet warm and dry. In addition to that, the insole is also removable, allowing you to substitute it for something more supportive. The boots also have a dual-density EVA midsole that adds extra support and stability.
The Adirondack boots tend to run a little small, so I recommend going half a size up for the best fit. Particularly if you have wide feet, since they don’t come in a wide version.
Looking for good rain boots? Then consider getting the Shelby boots, UGG’s take on the classic rubber rain boot. They are made from PVC, and feature entirely waterproof construction. The exterior of the boots is matte, which is much more stylish than a really shiny rubber boot. At least for me.
I don’t often wear rubber boots, because I’m always cold in them. Most rubber boots don’t have any sort of lining inside, so they’re neither comfortable nor warm. But these are different – unlike many other cheap boots, the UGG Shelby are lined with textile inside. And they feature sheepskin lining on the insole, for extra warmth during those cold fall days.
However, those insoles are not removable. And they’re not too supportive either, so I don’t think these boots would be a great option for people with flat feet or high arches. Especially because they would probably be really tight, if you just added an extra insole on top of the existing one.
The PVC outsole on these boots is really good. It is actually a classic herringbone outsole, which will provide you with plenty of grip and traction on a rainy day. It’s not the best for icy pavements, but it’s more than good enough for skipping through puddles. Which, admit it, you love to do when you’re wearing rubber boots.
The Shelby boots usually run true to size, but they are not available in half sizes. If you are a half size, you will want to go up in size for the best fit.
We wouldn’t have any of the boots here without the Classic UGG boots. It’s what made the brand famous worldwide, and a big reason for UGG’s popularity and success. Can you imagine what the early 2000s would have been without the Classic UGG Boots? Me neither!
Although there are new many variations of the Classic boot, the Short II style is still by far the most popular. These UGGs feature suede and sheepskin uppers, which are soft, warm and incredibly comfortable.
The latest version of these boots also has decent water resistance. They are not entirely waterproof, but the exterior should be able to keep you dry in light rain. The boots also have good stain resistance, which keeps them looking brand new for a long time.
However, keep in mind that the Classic Short II boot was not meant for rain or snow. Large amounts of water will easily soak through the boots, and you should avoid wearing them when it’s not dry outside. In addition to that, the water repellent coating on these UGGs will wear off over time, and it is recommended that you spray them now and again with some sort of water repellent.
The Classic UGGs feature the brand’s proprietary Treadlite outsole, which offers decent amounts of traction and cushioning. Even though the brand improved their outsoles significantly over the last decade, they still have a long way to go. Let’s just say I wouldn’t dare walk across an icy parking lot in these, unless I had a cushion taped to my backside.
These have the classic sheepskin-lined insole, which is soft and warm, but not very supportive. If you usually require more supportive footwear, you will need to put better insoles in these boots.
Last but not least are the UGG Kesey boots. The stylish shoes feature a classic ankle boot silhouette, which goes well with any outfit. These boots are warm, waterproof, stylish and seriously comfortable, making them easily one of our favorite UGGs for late fall.
They are not properly insulated, but they do have a thick layer of UGGPure wool lining on the inside. This should be able to keep you warm during cold winters, but maybe not if the temperatures well below zero Celsius.
These are really comfortable to wear. They have a cushioning foam insole, which is lined with wool. So, it’s going to keep you warm, but also provide you with comfort and support in your every step. Unfortunately, the insoles are not removable, so they’re not the best option for people with high arches and flat feet.
But they are a good option if you want a boot that’s got a rugged outsole. The UGG Kesey features a spider rubber outsole, which is infused with cork, for extra traction and comfort. And just like most rubber outsoles, it performs really well in wet weather, and it won’t disappoint you in icy conditions either.
The seam-sealed construction ensures that no moisture can penetrate the boot from the outside, but it also allows the moisture inside to evaporate. Meaning that these are quite breathable, just like most other UGGs.
The Kasey boots by UGG run true to size, so order them in the size you normally wear for the best fit. They are available in half sizes.
What kind of boots are you looking for? Do you need something stylish that you can wear everyday, or do you want rugged boots that will get you through the entire winter?
UGGs are loved for their warmth and style – they are easy to combine with virtually anything in your closet, so they’re the perfect everyday boots. You can wear them with anything, from tracksuits to dresses and you will look great. If that’s exactly what you’re looking for, then you have plenty of options in this review.
But if you’re looking for something rugged and versatile, I’m afraid you have limited options. There are a few pairs of boots that perform equally well on different terrain types, and I’ve told you all about them in the mini-reviews. Be sure to check those, in order to know exactly what kind of boot you are getting.
The right pair of winter boots should be incredibly warm and waterproof. The former is true of all UGG boots – they are loved and worn by people from all over the world precisely because they are so remarkably warm. That’s thanks to the UGGPure wool lining, which keeps your feet toasty warm even in sub-zero temperatures.
Because of that, don’t skip out on a pair of UGGs just because they are not insulated. In fact, very few pairs of UGGs have any insulation. But they are still warm, thanks to the lining.
UGGPure wool has moisture-wicking properties, which allows UGG boots to remain breathable, despite being so warm. So, you won’t have to deal with sweaty and clammy feet in any one of the boots I showed you here.
Make sure to check the product infoboxes, to find out if a pair of boots are insulated, in addition to the wool lining. The boxes will also tell you if a particular pair of UGGs is waterproof – most of them are, but it’s always better to be completely sure.
How much support do you usually need from shoes? If you can wear anything straight out of the box, then you don’t have to worry about the types of footbed in the boots.UGGs are generally really comfortable and supportive enough for people that don’t have any problems with their feet.
However, if you usually need extra support in your shoes, look for UGGs that have removable insoles. This will allow you to put in your own insole the boots, and really ensure that you’re getting the support that you need.
Be sure to check the pros/cons boxes, to see if a pair of boots feature removable insoles.
If you have high arches, I would not recommend you buy any of these boots without trying them on. Yes, you can get more support with a good insole. But what’s that going to do for you, if you can’t even get your feet inside the boots? Definitely try them on in a store, before you take advantage of a hot sale online!
Make sure that you’re ordering a size that will fit you just right. Not all UGGs runs true to size – be sure to check the pros/cons boxes, to see if a pair runs small or large. If there’s nothing about the sizing in these boxes, then that particular pair of boots is true to size.
UGGs are only available in standard sizes, meaning that there are no narrow/wide options. If you have wide feet, we usually recommend going half a size up, for the best fit. However, that’s not always going to be possible, since not all UGGs are available in half sizes.
So, out of all these boots, which ones should you buy? If you still haven’t decided, go with one of our top choices and you won’t have any regrets!
The best casual boots for men are Seton Tl. Their classic style can easily be paired with anything in your closet, so you’ll get to wear them a lot. The leather uppers are waterproof and will protect your feet from any moisture.

Even the insoles in the Butte boots surpassed our expectations because they provide enough arch support even for people with flat feet and high arches!
Ladies, if you want a casual boot, you can’t go wrong with the Classic UGGs. They are iconic, easily one of the most popular pairs of boots of all time. You can wear them with anything, from denim to dresses, and you will look amazing. With UGGPure wool lining on the inside, your feet will never be cold.
Just don’t wear them when it’s raining or snowing – the only downside to this iconic boot is that it is not waterproof.
And if you’re looking for something rugged, go with the Adirondack snow boots. You get that UGG warmth with the UGGPure wool lining inside, plus some extra warmth from the insulation in the boots. Their uppers are fully waterproof and will keep your feet dry regardless of how wet it is outside.
