I'm not sure about the rest of the world but for the UK, autumn means UGGS. As much as I used to be a fan and couldn't wait to splash all my savings on a pair (£120!!) the cheaper version are just a no go. Please don't do it. It looks horrible and screams fake. They've even now been labelled 'Fuggs' (fake uggs) Theres so many types of shoes and shoes you can get for cheap that look great. If you really really need a pair than just save up that cash over summer.
I'm not a n UGGS fan anymore, but it must be said that they are the comfiest shoe I've ever worn.
I hope I haven't offended anyone, but I just don't think a broken shoe is a good look.
