UGG Adirondack Boot II - Leather

When it comes to Ugg boots the first thing that probably pops into your mind is the 'Classic' Ugg. I have a pair of the Classics and they are comfy and warm but I needed a sturdy winter boot for the snow and ice here. I spent a while window-shopping and wasn't sure what I was going to go for as snow boots are not known for being the most stylish shoe. I didn't want a shoe that looked overly technical but having to walk a lot, I knew I wanted something that would be super warm and help me not slip on ice or packed snow.

I was browsing The Bay's website and saw these Ugg snow boots. I had no idea Ugg had such a wide selection of styles and I thought they looked really nice!

They are expensive but I think you get what you pay for. They have really been put to the test this week as it has been REALLY cold. We have had snow and temperatures of -30... I was curious as to how the boots would withstand this weather. I have been blown away with how amazing they are.  My feet have been so warm. The lamb wool really helps to insulate which is what is needed in these temperatures. They have a luxurious lamb wool insole and the inside upper of the boot is also lamb wool. You can wear the cuff down or pulled up for some extra warmth, so far I have kept mine turned down.

Now, onto the grip. I am SO fearful of ice and even walking on packed snow. Last year when walking I would slide around with my regular boots and I was so worried I was going to fall. These boots have incredible traction. The sidewalks have so far been mostly packed snow but even that can be slippery and I haven't felt like I was going to fall at any point wearing these. Even on the roads which have been a bit icy, I still have good traction and I can walk confidently.

As you can tell from this review, I really LOVE these boots and highly recommend them. To me, they are an investment and so worth the money.

Have you tried the Adirondack boots? What are your tips for staying warm in winter while on the move?
