Uggs are back. And our first thought at the prospect of seeing them on the feet of everyone everywhere was . . . ugh!!!! Because if this is the same-old cushy footwear that became omnipresent before fading into the dark mists of fashion trends past, then hard pass. Actually, though, the good news is that this year’s resurgence of the Ugg boot trend comes with lots of options, including minis, tall versions, platforms, sequins and more. Uggs are back on trend, baby, and here are 12 fresh ways to wear them.
the Ugg boot is back . . . ugh!!!!
If you didn’t know, let us be the first to tell you: Uggs are back. And we have to be honest, we are not too surprised. As you know, we are living in an intensely nostalgic moment, where the films, foods, and fashions from former eras are staging their epic comebacks. And the early aughts? Apparently, we miss them.
Back to the Uggs. These super-comfy shoes have always been a little controversial – the word Ugg, after all, is two letters away from ‘ugly’ – but apparently not controversial enough. They’re back, and they are being plastered all over our social media feeds, reminding us of middle school, and being photographed with everything from loungewear to casual winter dresses.
Luckily, these fuzzy winter boots are not exactly the same as they were fifteen years ago. Uggs have been given some wonderful upgrades this season, and we have to say – we are really loving what we see. Especially these days, when comfort is key, nothing seems more appealing than slipping our feet into a soft and reliable pair of shoes. Read below for twelve of our favorite options.
12 fresh ways to style the return of the Ugg boot fashion trend
1. Classic Mini Boot
Still a bestseller, this is the Ugg look that we remember. And if you’re missing your old classic Uggs – or if you’re in need of warm winter boots that you can trust – it’s hard to beat these. With a sheepskin lining, and an easy-to-wear foam footbed, these are reminding us why we used to love Uggs so much. They’re designed for maximum comfort. And with cute colors like gray, red, black, and chestnut, you can find the pair that fits best into your wardrobe.

2. Classic Mini Platform
These classic mini platforms take the classic mini and pop a platform heel on the bottom. We like these, because they add some flair to the Ugg look, making it clear that the person wearing them is proud to be seen in their Ugg boots. A daring look, and a commitment to the Ugg aesthetic. We are partial to the cheerful radish shade, which feels like a bold and bright hot pink.

3. Classic Ultra Mini
The ultra minis are the focus of the Ugg renaissance, and they’re also our personal favorite addition to the Ugg universe. They’re just slightly smaller than the classic minis – the top cuts off around your ankle. Though these may not be the most practical for romping through ten feet of snow, they’re the ones you want to be wearing in your next Tik Tok – since they’re the ones all the other influencers will be wearing too.

4. Classic Ultra Mini Platform
And now we have a combination of the styles we’ve mentioned so far! These are the classic ultra minis, but with the addition of a platform heel. They’re short and tall at the same time, and we kind of love it. And it seems like the rest of the world does too, because these are Uggs’ bestsellers, and they are currently out of stock. Sign up with your email so you are informed as soon as they’re back.

5. Ultra Mini Chunky Sequin
Since the ultra mini Uggs are so popular, of course Ugg has been releasing them in all kinds of fun, festive special editions. One of our favorites? This chunky sequined pair. They have a heel like the ultra mini platforms, but the sparkles make them stand out even more – something that we didn’t think was possible. Since we’re committing to the Ugg look, we may as well really commit.
Ultra Mini Chunky Sequin: $160.00.
6. Classic Maxi Mini
Maxi mini! Are you confused yet? Well, what these minis lack in height they make up for with width – they’re designed to look like shoe-shaped puffy coats. And wouldn’t you want to pair them with one? When we imagine the perfect outfit for a freezing cold December day, we’re definitely wearing these – and the playful neon shade is just a bonus.
BUY NOW: $180.00.
7. Micro Mini
It’s the ultra mini… but even smaller! Yes, the new era of Uggs does feel a little like a series of nesting dolls, and we can’t get enough of them. The micro minis close over the top of the foot, giving them a strikingly different appearance than the rest of the Ugg family. These are as fashion-forward as they are durable, comfortable, and easy-to-wear. Available in both black and chestnut.
BUY NOW: $130.00.
8. Classic II Mini Boot
The holidays are around the corner, and you may have a little one looking for their own pair of Uggs. Minis for the minis, if you will. These are a smidge taller than the ultra minis, making them perfectly suitable shoes for any winter activities. They’re easy to move around in, and they come in shades of black, chestnut, gray, and radish. If you want your child to experience the Ugg joy that you once experienced, these are the way.
BUY NOW: $115.00.
9. Tasman Slipper
Of course, Uggs have always been known for their super cozy slippers. And we love this version so much! Since they have the same outsole as the classic Uggs, you can also wear them outside, but we think there’s no shoe we’d rather wear around the house. All winter long. Choose between purple, black, chestnut, and gray.
BUY NOW: $100.00.
We love the look of the disquette. They’re like fuzzy slippers, but their platforms give them an elevated look (no pun intended). And they’re designed for both indoor and outdoor wear. These feel like the heart of this nostalgic, retro moment, and we dare you to pair them with some jeans this season.
BUY NOW: $100.00.
11. Classic Tall Chunky Knit Boot
And now for something totally different. Maybe you crave the comfort and durability of Uggs, but you just can’t get on board with the way they look. Why not give these a try? They are lined with the signature Uggplush wool, but they’re way closer to two chunky knit sweaters than they are to any Ugg boots. We know you want to make them part of your signature winter wardrobe.
BUY NOW: $200.00.
12. Harrison Cuff
And finally, the Harrison Cuff. These are great, because they’re just… winter boots. Cute ones. With a fuzzy lining, and an aesthetically pleasurable buckle. We love them, and we love that they would go with almost any outfit. Everyone should have a pair.
