These boots are my third pair of Uggs. (Being an ordinary person, I can only treat myself to something so wonderful every few years). After the first purchase 10 years ago, I refuse to wear any other brand. When these arrived I tried them out and they were perfect--just like the first two pairs. Warm, comfortable, and easy on-and-off with the zipper. Since these are completely lined with shearling, I can wear these without socks and fear of blisters. This new pair is much more stylish than the older pairs-- although the older pairs are still holding up well. Love the wonderful soles!
