While UGG was long known for its "ugly" shoes, the brand's comfortable footwear has quickly become a fashion-industry favourite. In recent years, celebrities and supermodels alike popularised the ultimate off-duty slippers and mini platform boots. Now, UGG's soon-to-be It shoe is the Dipper Boot, which just launched during New York Fashion Week in September.
Similar to the popular platform style, the Dipper boots have a thick, heightening sole, but with a calf-hugging silhouette and sock-like design. And unlike other UGG classics, these feature a little pop of colour — the Chestnut version has a neon-orange pull tab, while the black one has a yellow tag on the back. The Dipper is certainly the brand's trendiest shoe to date, paying tribute to iterations from high-fashion counterparts like Bottega Veneta and Balenciaga. While stylish, the footwear still remains true to UGG's signature elements like its suede material and snug plush lining. Admittedly, I wasn't on board for the resurgence of the original tall UGGs, but these I can get behind.
Fashion girls like Lori Harvey and Emily Ratajkowski have already been spotted pairing the boots with casual streetwear in New York City, while Cardi B and Natalia Bryant collaborated with the brand to promote the shoe's initial release.
With cold weather fast approaching, it's time to invest in boots appropriate for the upcoming season. You might remember the mini platforms swiftly became near impossible to find, so now's your chance to get ahead of the trend before it sells out.
