Material Used for UGG Boots
UGG boots are made from 100 percent animal fibers, except for the synthetic sole on the bottom exterior of the boot. On the outside, uggs on sale feature a smooth tanned leather surface, while the interior of the boot is lined in fuzzy sheep’s wool. While the materials are prized for their warmth, the thick sheepskin doesn’t allow air to flow through the shoe. After you wear your UGG boots -- particularly if you wear them without socks -- sweat remains absorbed in the liner rather than being wicked away from the material so it can evaporate
Steer clear of adding deodorants or perfumes to your boots to remove the smell as these will only mask the problem. To remove smells, UGGs Australia recommends handwashing UGG boots with a mild detergent and warm water. If you fail to dry your boots fully after washing, a sour smell will continue to be an issue. To dry the boot after washing without destroying its integrity, stuff the interior of the boot with crumpled newspaper to absorb the moisture. The drying process could take up to a week or longer, depending on the humidity of your home.
UGG Australia sells replacement insoles that are made from the same 100 percent sheep’s wool that lines the interior of your ugg boots on sale. These insoles are made to fit both men and women's boots. Your feet soles are the primary part of your foot that sweats. Replacing your boots’ insoles occasionally or as you notice a smell will remove a principal source of your UGG boot odor problem.
Once you’ve remedied the smell in your UGG boots, take steps to prevent or at least reduce the frequency of the smell. Always wear socks on your feet when wearing your UGGs. Without a wicking material that can prevent moisture from reaching the wool lining, your UGGs will continue to suffer from strong odors. Add a ball of crumpled newspaper or a rolled hand towel to the inside of your boots after each time you wear them to absorb excess moisture.
