Australia’s own UGG comes through:
Hear me out… I know that after a 4.5 month hiatus from this blog a lot of you are going to be criticizing this homecoming post being about Uggs and not some next level Japanese shit I blessed you with so often before. Cool out, because these are slippers not shoes and that Japanese stuff is going to be coming back full speed. It should be noted that a fair number of douchebags aren’t going to understand the science behind slipper vs shoe construction, and frankly discussing that with you guys or anyone else is way below my pay grade. In case you didn’t know, driving shoes semi-recently became the new menswear “thing”, and a lot of guys are not wearing them just for driving. I was commenting to one of the girls at Nordstrom a while back how I wish a low key pair of Gucci driving shoes they had in stock came in a street version, and she was like “O ya… you Be surprised how many guys just wear them outside anyway and then try and bring them back for a refund in 2 months when they all wore out”. I said nothing, but gave two disappointed nods in which “no doubt sistah” was implied.
$140 for the slippers. They come in both “Stout” and “Metal” colors. I don’t know who comes up with the names for these colorways, but I now feel I should do something arbitrary like that with my own line just because I can.
Holy @ the sizing going all the way up to 18. I’m 6’4″ and my feet are pretty substantial at size 12. Funny when you click on Ugg’s own sizing chart, 18 isn’t even on there… it only goes up to 16.
I have a pair of non camouflage Ugg slippers, so I can attest to their quality construction and their coziness.
