    Hey everyone I need help!

    I really want to buy some UGG boots, I used to have EMU ones that I liked, but they only lasted about 6 months and then the backs collapsed (if you know what I mean) Will real UGGS do this as well? Because I don't want to spend £150 on the real ones when theyre going to last the same amount of time as the others!
    Does anyone have UGGS that they wear fairly regularly and how long have you had them for?
    Thanks!

    I've had mine for over a year and wear them all the time. They look a bit dishevelled on the outside (they're black, so you can't really tell) but they're still fine and haven't caved in. The inside soles have worn away a big so they're not as fluffy as they used to be. Mind you, I have had them since October 2008 so yeah.

    They should last a long time if you look after them, spray then and keep away from water

    They are a fine symbol of craftmanship. Well-made, hence why so expensive. just treat them well, use some sort of product to protect the material and don't go jumping in mud or puddles. or muddles.

    I have had mine for 2 years and I wear them ALL the time. I reckon they'll last me another year or so as well as they're not in bad condition. They're so worth the money in my opinion.

    As long as you want, I get mine reheeled and buy new sheepskin insoles.

    I've had mine for 3 years and they're fine, but I don't walk with my foot slanted to much.

    they last ages but will obviously start to look bad with time and if you don't look after them. Id say you can keep them in good condition for about two years so they are defo worth the money

    My friend's suede ones have lasted a year though I don't think she's looked after them particularly well.
    I've just bought some because they're leather which should last longer and look better in the long run than suede.
    As others have said, a bit of protector on them and avoidance of puddles mean they last quite some time.
    I'm glad I got some - sooo comfy and better than cheaper pairs that haven't even lasted a month previously.

    I've had mine just over a year and the only thing that is wrong with them is that the colour of them has faded, but that is entirely my own fault because I went out in the snow in them.
    I would seriously recommend buying a pair, they might be expensive but they are well worth the price.

    I've had mine for over 3 years, and they are just starting to look manky, then I did stupidly wear them in the snow and slush!

    Ah, I've just brought the leather ones. They are different, and like no one has them.. just what I like! I love them, but they are like creasing? quickly.

    But yes. They should last quite a long time if you look after them. My friends mum gave her hers from back when they were first 'big' in the UK. My friend wears them a lot, and still look brand new after 20/25 years.

    Na they're not creasing because I rub a leather cream into them once a week to keep them moisturised. I've seen the more worn look of them and don't mind it, but want to delay that as much as possible.

    I've had my sand coloured ones over a year and they still look good. They haven't gone mis-shapen and the sole isn't really worn. The only mark is from where I got tar on them :P I just bought some new UGGs online as I got a discount code for Schudoo.com so they were £120 instead of £150. There were limited sizes though. If you want to check if they have the colour and size you want left and message me I will try and find the code again and you can see if it still works

    I've had mine for three years, they look fine on the outside but I can't wear them without socks anymore because the furs worn away near the heel and it rubs. This only happened recently though.

    Dont buy the bailey button ones they last about a month. If you're going to buy some get the classic ones or the new jumbo ones.

    1. This should be in Clothes and Accessories.
    2. Cut the spam or this thread will be locked. Comments like "zomg uggs are the most hideous thing EVER" are not helpful.
