6pm, an outlet if you will for Zappos, is having an AMAZING sale on a large selection of UGGs right now. The really weird thing? The prices on the summary and checkout page are MUCH, MUCH lower than the detail page.
The summary and checkout page price for the UGG Duclair Boot is $28.
But the detail page for the UGG Duclair Boot still shows $98 (remember, you need to add to your shopping cart to see the lower price reflected).
I’m not sure why this is happening. I have to assume this is not a price mistake, since there is supposed to be an 80% off sale on UGGs right now and I was able to successfully checkout at the lower price. With winter weather practically upon us, this is an awesome deal for genuine sheepskin boots which, even if they aren’t the prettiest boots out there, reliably keep my toes toasty and dry.

It must be close to Halloween. Otherwise, how am I supposed to take these sandals seriously? I came across these today and immediately realized that these are the Perfect Fringed Sandal- for the girl who is partying as a Wookie (or, if she’s short like me, an Ewok*) or heck, Bigfoot.
*Please pardon me, my geek is showing.
Here is the shoe (Zucca Brown Fringed Sandals $284 at Creatures of Comfort):
Here is Chewbacca:
And here is Wicket:
Can you look at the sandal and come up with an outfit that doesn’t scream out ‘Hobbit Feet’. These are like nightmare, shorty Uggs for Summertime; apparently these are for those occasions when a knee-high, furry, Yeti-esque boot is just too hot to be practical.
Well, more “In Sickness” for this post, as I’ve been felled by a nasty virus and lying at home on the couch for the past three days. Does that get boring fast!
So, no fun shoes for the past few days, that’s for sure. But plenty of appreciation for my cozy Ugg Tasman slippers, which kept my feet warm and comfy throughout the ordeal.
So, even though today is the first day of Spring, and I should be thinking about what old shoes I should be clearing out of my closet, instead I’m going on about the raptures of cozy slippers.
But me, I’m all about the plush and cozy, and I’m a longtime devotee of the Tasman with its sole that’ll let you wear it outside to get the paper if you have to.
But these scuffs from Barefoot Bling are mighty tempting.
And Restoration Hardware has a pair that comes in a soothing array of colors.
If you’re after something that comes up snug around your ankle to keep those cold floor breezes from your tender feet, then I’d suggest something like these Old Friend Bootees.
And if you’re not really sure what kind of slipper you’re after, then consult the vast selection at OnlySlippers.com. I’ll give you three guesses what they specialize in, and the first two don’t count.
Or is it Shoe-Santa? I can’t tell. But I would like to figure out a way to drop subtle hints to my significant other as to what my heart really wants this coming gift season.
So, should I leave my computer open for him to see these UGGs?
Hey, they’re practical, comfortable, and perfect for that vacation in Aspen I’ve been planning. The Ugg Rina Ribbon Boot is $225 at Neiman Marcus. Ok, I lied–I haven’t been planning a vacation in Aspen, but if I have these boots, I might!
Or maybe he’s going to figure out a certain designer is on my mind because of my numerous Freudian slips? (“Mmm, these pradines are delicious!”). And maybe this will come to mind:
Prada suede riding boots, just a tad under $1000 at Neiman’s.
Or maybe…I should keep complaining I got nothing festive to wear for when we go over to his parents for Christmas? Something nice and cute and…red? Like these unusually low Louboutins:
Or maybe I should just be upfront and say, “Honey, all I want for Christmas is a pair of Manolos?”
I’m sure he’ll understand!
How do you manage to drop those shoe-hints to your significant other?
Last night I helped a friend start her quest for a pair of boots that will keep her comfy, warm, and stylish as the weather gets cold. This is a fashion-forward gal of my acquaintance who has finally accepted that her California wardrobe of heels and thin materials isn’t quite going to cut it as we move into a New York winter. So, the hunt is on.
First try was the Cole Haan Air Joa boot ($295). Waterproof, comfy (Nike Air sole), shearling cuff and cozy knit lining, and still not without a ruggedly chic sense of style. All in all, a distinct possibility.
But it didn’t quite fit right, so on we went. The Ugg Locarno ($225) that I posted about last week was her next choice. Sadly, though, we didn’t have enough time to keep hunting for it in person before stores closed up for the night.
So, the Locarno search continues. And in the meantime, here are a couple other ideas for anyone looking for a boot that can do it all.
The Santana Lacey Hi boot ($234) is sleek, water-resistant, and fleece lined for cold days.
The Halter boot ($329) by those pros of sexy weatherproof shoes, Aquatalia by Marvin K, is a fun patent leather that comes in a nice black, yes, but also this deliciously autumnal “carmel” color. It’s got a knit collar, a faux fur lining for warmth, and it’s weatherproof. Plus, it’s got a removable insole in case you need to stick some of your own orthotics inside.
And for really sleek, La Canadienne offers a number of boots that you wouldn’t believe are designed for bad weather, because they’re often just as fashionable as any other boot you can find out there. The Fidelity knee boot ($264) is a perfect example. Waterproof and with a breathing/wicking liner that’ll keep your feet warm and dry throughout the winter. Plus, you can get this boot in medium or wide widths. One word of warning, though. The circumference on these is listed as 13″, so it may be a better pick for those like me who are looking to fit smaller calves.
