Can UGGs be Worn to Work?

Gen Z has become incredibly skilled at mixing business-core with casual elements to create outfits that can take you from the office straight to a cozy dinner with your girlfriends with ease. Unless you’re working a corporate job with a really strict dress code, you can easily afford to blur the lines of the office attire. Pairing a suit with sneakers has become the new normal, however, when it comes to styling a pair of UGGs people start to feel puzzled. Are they appropriate shoes to wear to work? Contrary to what most people may think, UGG boots can be effortlessly dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Their wide variety of designs, colors, and textures can add a unique character to an overall simple outfit.

Which UGGs are Most in Style?

We may have not been able to predict the comeback of this ’90s relic, but Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa, and Adam Sandler (yes, you read that right) were! UGGs quickly became one of the most talked-about shoes of 2023 and now that fall is finally here, and I have fully immersed myself in the cozy girl aesthetic of the season, I can no longer fight the urge! After thorough research of what the celebrities are wearing on their feet, I’ve picked out the 4 trendiest UGG designs that I am instantaneously adding to my cart (and you should consider doing so, as well):

  • Classic Ultra Mini Platform ($150)
  • Tazz Suede Platform Slippers ($130)
  • Classic Mini Sheepskin Boots ($160)
  • Funkette Platform Slippers ($130)

Are You Supposed to Wear Socks in UGGs?

Apart from being a fashion statement, UGG boots are designed function-forward, meaning their main goal is to fulfill their purpose. The original boots and slippers are made of thermostatic sheepskin. It’s a natural insulator that helps regulate your body’s temperature and keep you warm during the cold months. The high-grade wool cushions are designed in a way that perfectly molds to your feet for ultimate comfort. Because of their thorough and thoughtful design, experts say that the best way to experience the full potential of UGG shoes is to wear them without socks. That way you are allowing your skin to breathe and make the most of the arch support the wool cushions can offer by molding to your unique footprint.

What Happens If You Wear UGGs With Socks?

When you wear your UGGs with socks you prevent the air from circulating and your feet will begin to sweat. If you wear the shoes regularly and for long periods of time, the sweat will create perfect conditions for bacteria to grow inside the shoes, with a following unpleasant odor. It also hinders the wool sole from molding accurately to your foot’s contour, which will take away from their effectiveness and durability.

If you still choose to wear your UGG boots or slippers with socks, make sure that they are made from organic materials, such as 100% cotton, cotton and wool blends, or bamboo.

What is the Best Way to Waterproof UGG Boots?

If you’ve ever owned a pair of UGGs you’re aware of their biggest enemy – water! The good news is that there are quite a few ways to make your favorite boots waterproof. Here’s what they are:

  • UGG Boot Guard – Although the guard isn’t designed specifically for rain, it is a great way to add a layer of protection to the gentle surface of the sheepskin boots. What’s really cool about them is that they come in various colors that can help spruce your outfit up!
  • Water and Oil Repellent – UGG offer their own repellent against water and oil stains, however, there are also many other companies on the market that produce similar products. It’s best to do some research and find the one that will suit your needs and pocket the most!flu
