Every ‘Smart Girl’ Needs To Know Kris Jenner’s Shoe Hack
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner knows a thing or two when it comes to fashion. She's (literally) birthed five fashion icons. If it weren't for Kris, we wouldn't have Kendall Jenner, which means we might not have lived through the rise of bridging! Dare I say, a Kardashian-free world would be calamitous for the fashion industry. Who would wear weird leotard-shaped tanks if Kourtney Kardashian hadn't set the trend? Who would keep lip-injections in style if it weren't for Kylie Jenner? Lisa Rinna?? Point taken, Kris Jenner is strangely influential. At 60 years old, she's keeping up with all the Kardashians and then some. We regard her as something of an authority on the matter of functional fashion, and her recent advice for Caitlyn Jenner only proves our point. On a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris told Caitlyn that constantly wearing heels will aggravate her preexisting knee trouble. Woman-to-woman, Kris told her ex, "A smart girl always has Uggs in her car." We couldn't agree more, Kris! Do you keep a pair of Uggs in your car?

UGGs Are Officially Back, Thanks To An Endorsement From Kendall And Kylie Jenner
The fashion world and women everywhere have very strong opinions about UGG, whether it be good or bad. The amazing people over at E! decided to do some investigative work regarding UGGs ever growing popularity, and, according to their findings, UGGs are "here to stay". Ever since the brand's birth in 1978, they've been on the up and up. Celebrity endorsements are essential and UGG has been backed by Oprah, Kendall Jenner, Beyoncé and Kate Moss, just to name a few. However, in the early 2000s, UGG boots and lookalikes became overwhelmingly popular. Even if celebrities were rockin' these boots on movie sets, they were available just about anywhere so the appeal started to decline. After falling off everyone's radar for a bit in the late 2000s, Vogue wrote an article stating UGGs were making a comeback. "It" girls like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid were spotted wearing them. In that instant, UGGs were suddenly cool again because of the "it girl" endorsement. Shop a Kylie, Kendall and Gigi's favorite styles below!

8 Pairs Of Water-Resistant UGGs That Will Handle Rain And Snow Like A #Boss
Say what you want about UGGs, but nothing really compares on a cold winter day. They're warm, comfortable and basically the only shoes that make freezing cold semi-bearable. Of course, all of that goes out the window the minute there's precipitation in the forecast. Everyone knows UGGs and rain don't mix. Until now, that is. UGG Australia now has tons of water-resistant styles and the best part? You'd never know the difference just by looking at them. They look just like the UGGs you already own (or have on your wish list) except they are made with new fabrications on the outside that repel water so you can wear them in the rain and snow without destroying them. #genius Shop the new water resistant UGG boots in the slideshow.

These Replacement Soles Are The Best Thing Ever If Your UGGs Need New Life
If you're a devoted UGG wearer (ain't no shame!), then you know the shoes don't stay fresh and fluffy forever. It's not uncommon for the shearling to wear out after a few seasons--especially on the inside sole. That's why these replacement insoles are a total game changer. Instead of dropping $150 on another pair of UGGs, you can just get these inserts for a tenth of the price (read: more money to spend on PSLs). Your shoes get new life and don't need to be broken in all over again. Um, amazing much?

Waterproof UGGs Are A Lazy Girl’s Best Friend This Winter
An experience wearing UGG boots is like no other, unless you know what it feels like if your feet were wrapped in tiny Tempur-Pedic mattresses. When we first slipped into those puppies as a teen, it was a revelation. Could it be that we found a pair of shoes that are super cozy AND go with everything in our wardrobe? (At least back then we thought they did.) And just when we tried to brave the elements in quite possibly the comfiest pair of boots ever, your favorite footwear ends up sopping wet after only a few minutes of rainy or snowy weather. A temporary fix included waterproof sprays but weathered damage to our dear UGGs were forever. Luckily, the Aussie boot gods answered our prayers with these UGG Australia Waterproof Boots ($164.95), which means we'll be wearing this trusty pair straight through the holidays, whether it's a long travel home to visit the family or a day of lounging around by the fireplace to avoid that dreadful polar vortex.

Black Friday 2004 Was The Same As Black Friday 2013: Everyone Wanted UGGs
It's no surprise that the iPad sold out on Black Friday, or that tech products were the number one sellers, but we were a little shocked to hear what fashion item people searched the most for online: UGGs. Yes, it's true. People still love the sheepskin boots no matter how much crap they get for wearing them. According to Google's research which was shared with the Huffington Post, UGG boots were #4 on the complete list of trending items on Black Friday, following video game consoles, tablets, and Minecraft Legos. The only other fashion items that made the top 10 were North Face and Nike Air Jordan retro sneakers. Based on that list, we can pretty much assume that UGGs will be around for a long, long time. You better find a way to put your aversion aside. Don't forget to check out 100+ Cyber Monday deals, the Kindle Fire sale, and celebrity Thanksgiving Instagrams

Hey UGG Diehards, Will You Still Wear The Sheepskin Boots NOW?
Deny it all you want, but we know you secretly have one pair of UGGs stashed in the back of your closet. Maybe you just wear them around the house, or maybe you're someone who has no shame and rocks them in public. Hey, if celebs like Blake Lively and Cameron Diaz do it, they can't be soooo bad, right? But, if you think one of the best-selling boots of all time (if not THE best) can do no wrong with their comfy sheepskin lining, you need to get some facts. Sure the 35 Classics for 35 Years anniversary collection, and the new customization tool give us even more UGG options, but we're not sure you're going to want them after you hear this. Do you know what you're really wearing (and funding) when you put on those Classic Tall UGGS? According to Yahoo News, the real and not widely known reputation of UGGs is the awful treatment of sheep to provide buyers with wool. It's horrible and inhumane. Not to be too graphic, but to give you all the info: they actually remove the skin of the sheep WITH the wool. It sounds painful just typing it. So that means the wool on the shoe is still attached to the sheep's skin, and therefore sheep are killed to make the shoes. Even Pamela Anderson, whose claim to UGG fame is starting the whole trend, is horrified by how the boots are actually made. She tells People Magazine: "I feel so guilty for that craze being started around Baywatch days – I used to wear them with my red swimsuit to keep warm – never realizing that they were SKIN!" She's not alone. Most people think that the boots' wool lining is attached to a synthetic back. But, now we know that's not true. And even buying a pair of fake UGGs isn't the answer. Those boots use the same methods to make their shoes too. So is the UGG label and hefty price tag really worth it? What do you guys think? Will you still buy UGGs now that you know how they're made? Let us know in the comments below! If you're STILL looking for a pair of UGGs, try some of these non-shearling options. UPDATE: UGG has reached out and shared this link with us. According to Deckers, the company that owns UGG, "UGG does not use sheepskin unless it is a byproduct of the meat industry". Read more to find out how UGG treats the sheep used for their boots.

Shearling Wedges: Because All Shoes Should Feel Like UGGs On The Inside
Your feet have a rough life. It's true! They're forced into shoes that don't fit (but look soooo good), resulting in aches, pains, and blisters. You also experience stubbed and stepped-on toes. (Even worse if they're getting stepped on by a stiletto heel.) When the freezing chill sets in, your feet are the first ones to show notice (or numbness, rather). So it's safe to say that it's pretty tough out there for feet. So why not treat them to something special? Sure, you can schedule a spa pedicure or buy a pair of wooly socks but how about when you need your own two feet for a day full of trekking? That's where these shearling wedge sneakers come in. We already know how comfy a pair of wedge sneakers are, so adding that extra layer of super soft, extra warm shearling is a solid upgrade. It's like your favorite pair of UGG boots (but way more stylish), made to last in the grueling winter weather. The design is pretty niche at the moment but we did the work for you on finding the most stylish pairs available right now in our slideshow. Read more fashion stories and trends: what not to wear if you're petite, stylish boots with fringe, and coats under $200.
The Bailey Charm Boot Is The Coolest UGG Since…Ever

Any UGG owner will tell you that they wear the boot more for comfort than style (just ask these celebs). The ease of the shoe, especially in colder weather, seem to trump all logical thoughts about whether or not it actually "looks" good. After all, if it feels right, how can it be wrong? And this new UGG is stepping up its game with the addition of the boho-esque Bailey charm. So instead of wearing the same boots everyone's had since 2002, why not be different with the Bailey Charm Boot? Yeah, get on that. Like now.

8 Boots That Don’t Have Shearling, But Swear They’re Still UGGs.
For years, those who hated the UGG had to sit back and shake their heads at the hoards of people buying the boot, wearing the boot and often doing so in temperatures much higher than 50 degrees. Now, however, not only has the trend finally seemed to wane, even the company -- UGG Australia -- is looking for a new revenue stream via new products. And, this time, they aren't ugly ones. Sure, the name UGG might send a chill down your spine, but their new boots are anything but the UGGs of the past. Plus, celebrities like Amy Adams and Hayden Panettiere have already signed on to the new boot. Oh, you didn't have time to point out the ugliness that they chose for footwear recently? That's probably because you didn't even notice they were wearing UGGs. That's right, UGGs have done a 180 and now, the boot is simple, classic, useful and, might I even say, stylish. In the spirit of giving everything a second chance and wiping away first impressions with seriously impressive second iterations, check out these UGG boots that will certainly keep your feet warm and cozy without forcing you to sacrifice everything you know to be true about fashion.

UGG’s New Home Collection Is Here And Completely Colorless
We know that there are some of you out there who still can't stand the sight of UGG boots. But even so, there is no denying their coziness. And because their sheepskin fur has become so popular, UGG decided to expand into a home collection. You can now get sheepskin rugs, pillows and a cover for a pouf, which might be useful if you have any idea what a pouf is. If the idea of being covered in sheepskin freaks you out a bit, don't worry because they sell cable knit items too. But don't except any color in these new home products. Every piece is either gray or cream, making it seem like UGG Australia went very basic and took no risks with this collection.

Despite Early Predictions (And Droves Of Haters), UGGs Were The #1 Gift Of 2012
Don’t count them out just yet. Though it was recently reported that the polarizing shearling boot’s sales were down, UGG boots once again topped the most-gifted list this holiday season—even beating out the iPad and Barbie. UGGs may be the joke of the fashion industry, with style-setters like Alexa Chung ripping on the soft boots, but clearly the public has had the final word. One reason for the boot's success this season might be the decision by parent company Deckers to roll back prices after the dip in sales. The standard price of the Classic UGGs dropped $10-15, along with many markdowns on other styles. The brand was also featured on a few flash sale sites. And it's no surprise that people love themselves a good sale. That said, what do you think about continuing popularity of the (f)UGG boot? Did you receive or give a pair this holiday season? Sound off in the comments below. And if you're beginning to reconsider your hatred of UGGs, click through the slideshow to check out a bunch we found on sale. Some are the classic fuzzy style, but there are a few cute surprises in there, too. For other holiday bestsellers, check out WWD's 10 top sellers and what sold on Black Friday this season.

UGG Sales Dip To New Low. The End Of An Era — Or Best News Ever?
Love them or hate them, UGG boots have been a mainstay of the market for several years now. The only shoe to share both a "Best Selling" and "Most Hated" title is (finally) on the decline: shares of parent company Deckers Outdoor Corp. dropped 16% last week, reaching a 3-year low. The downward trend comes at a bad time for the boot, which normally reports huge holiday sales. According to HuffPo, Deckers blamed "years of price increases," such as the launch of the $500-$1,000 UGG Collection, for turning off the mall-shopping UGG consumer. While the anti-UGG set may be thrilled that the shearling boot's 5+ year reign is coming to an end, the decline is also good news for its fans. Deckers plans to react to the dip by rolling back prices. That means your beloved sheepskin slip-ons will be marked down -- just in time for holiday and any inclement weather we may have this unseasonably-warm winter. So, what do you think: is this the end of an era, or the best day EVER?! Leave a comment below. For more shoe news, check out this Hunter x J.
