    hi,

    I'm about to order a pair of uggs from america, and i'm trying to decide between long or short. On the website it says that the tall ones are 11inches shaft length and short ones 7inches shaft, but I don't really understand what the shaft measures exactly, so was wondering if somebody with uggs could quickly measure the length for me from the bottom of the floor to the top, if possible so that I know how long they are exactly!
    Rep will be given.

    Thankyou!

    I'm sure the 11inch ones are the ones that go mid-calf, and the 9inch ones are just above the ankle.

    Hope it helps ^^

    so those ones are just above the ankles? because those ones seem mid calf (according to the girl who posted aboves measurements) and the 11inch ones seem just below the knee.

    Mine go to almost mid-calf... bare in mind that the heel itself is almost an inch thick

    You have to measure against your own leg though...some ones mid calf could be your ankle depending on how long your legs are!! hope that makes sense...=)

    So I should measure 9 inches from the floor up to where it hits my leg to get the measurement of how much the "short uggs" would be on me? Sorry for the confusion, just want to be 100% sure because I won't be able to return them!

    Well they measure 9 inches including the heel, and the heel is almost an inch. So measure 8 inches up from the bottom of your foot and that'll show you how high up they'll go

    The ankle ones are ugg minis.
    These:
    I haven't seen them in many places at all.
    So Tall = Just below knee
    Short = Mid Calf
    Mini = Ankle ones.

    fao OP - ordering from america is pointless. by the time exchange rate, bank charges, shipping and duties are taken into account they cost more than just walking into office to buy a pair...

    I have relatives there who are coming over so I won't have to pay for shipping.

    Thankyou for your help all of you! Will be ordering the short ones.

    Actually my friend buys them from America all the time and they are cheaper to buy them off the US website. Plus, shipping is free for orders over $140
