4 Cheaper Sheepskin Boot Alternatives to UGG Boots

December 19, 2009 • By Erika

We know UGGS are warm, comfy, cozy and all that, but we also know that they’re hella expensive. The cheapest one we featured on our top UGG boots list was going for at least $140.00.

Wanting the same warmth and comfort that UGGs give but not willing to shell out nearly 200 bucks? We’ve found some cheaper UGG alternatives and compiled them right here.

Check out these 4 UGG-a-likes that offer the same sheepskin softness at half the price.

1. Old Friend Women’s Tall Boot (Sold Out)

Old Friend has been manufacturing sheepskin slippers for over 25 years. So when sheepskin boots became popular, it was just natural for them to adopt the trend. From the company that’s “serious about sheepskin” comes an UGG alternative that some say are even softer than UGGs. These 10-inch tall boots are on sale now at $89.30.

2. Fitzwell Laila Boot (Sold Out)

Fitzwell prides themselves in testing and ensuring the fit, comfort, and durability of each of their shoes.  Looks like all those lab tests have paid off because people are raving about their Laila sheepskin boot. The stitching is strong, they hold up during winter, and best of all, they look like UGGs to the untrained eye. Fitzwell 9-inch tall sheepskin boots are $65.00.

3. Bearpaw Eva 10″

Arguably the most popular alternative to UGGs, Bearpaws are the second best-selling sheepskin boots online.  One customer even said, “Don’t know why anyone would pay for UGGs when you can get this shoe for a fraction of the price.” Bearpaw 10-inch tall sheepskin boots retail for $63.95. They have a shorter 8-inch boot which goes for just $59.95.

4. Lugz Zen Hi Boot

The cheapest out of all the UGG alternatives, these 10-inch sheepskin boots from Lugz go for only $55.96. Lugz is a city and urban lifestyle clothing brand, so we’re not yet really that confident about their capacity to make winter boots. But hey, they are the cheapest, especially after Zappos has slashed 20% off of the original $69.95 price.

After going through all those UGG alternatives, they all really do start to look alike.
