  • I'm interested in buying my first pair too. They look so comfy and I spend a lot of time in hockey rinks.

  • I have a pair of UGG type boots I purchased from Bass Pro, and they are amazing. (my sister bought a pair of authentic UGGS and mine are warmer and of higher quality IMHO) The ones from Bass Pro, run small. I usually wear an 8.5 or 9 and I wear an 8 in them. They are real sheepskin inners and are very nice quality suede on the outside. I cant find them on the website, but they are natural reflection brand. I think They were $134. They are larger around the opening than UGGS

  • I bought a pair of boots that were the Best Friend brand (or maybe it's Old Friend?). Anyway, they are the best for winter, so warm, dry and comfy and you can wear no socks which I love. I am on my fourth pair. Anyway, because of the lining you need to buy them a little small because after you wear them a bit that lining kind of mats down some. So if the boots are roomy to begin with, once the lining mats they can be too big. Also, make sure to spray them with water proofing spray before you wear them as it really extends the life. Enjoy them!

  • DWS or amazon carrys them. I think uggs are ugly and I would not spend that much money on a pair of shoes or boots. I will stick to my wanna be uggs from target that were 40.00.

  • I love them too. I will probably spend the money to get a good pair this year. Sorry, I don't know the sizing part though.
