Uggs have come back – surely you got that memo a year ago, right? We confess, our first thought at the prospect of seeing them on the feet of everyone everywhere was . . . ugh!!!! But a year into it, we’re down with this idea. And we’re happy to report that there’s a fresh new wave of on trend Ugg boots: tall Uggs. TikTok has decreed that in 2024, the tall Ugg boot is the hot look, and we’ve got the rundown on the styles that will be most popular this year.
the ugg boot is back . . . but without the ugh!!!!
Uggs have come roaring back as an on-trend fashion style in the past 18 months. And why not? We’re living in an intensely nostalgic moment, where the films, foods, and fashions from former eras have been staging epic comebacks. The early aughts? Apparently, we really miss them.
Back to Uggs. These super-comfy shoes have always been a little controversial – the word Ugg, after all, is two letters away from ‘ugly.’ Nevertheless, 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, 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.
the tall ugg boot is the 2024 tiktok footwear trend of note
“Tall Uggs are the next cool-girl Ugg,” declared Casey Lewis on TikTok—and she wasn’t alone. Esther Povitsky, a comedian who built her TikTok platform as the “Jane Goodall of Hot Girls”—which sounds like a bit, but feels very accurate—said the same in an interview with Variety.
“Tall Uggs are a big thing that’s coming that people are not going to be ready for, for sure. Like, RIP Ultra-Mini Uggs,” Povitsky said. “We’re shifting back to tall Uggs. I think if you want to get a hot girl a gift this season, an Ugg-related gift, the Tall Boot is really where you want to go. Everyone’s already cycled through the Slip-Ons and Ultra-Minis.”
