Nice warm boots are simply irreplaceable in winter. They keep your feet warm and ideally dry and you can safely maneuver through snow and ice. Many women have sworn by Uggs for years. The lambskin boots are mostly made of soft suede on the outside and warmly lined with lambskin on the inside and are super comfortable. But the Ugg boots also have disadvantages:
1. Real Uggs are quite expensive at well over a hundred euros
2. Sheep have to suffer for production and the animal welfare organization Peta has been denouncing the brutal methods of fur extraction for years. UGG boots sale
3. Uggs are not completely waterproof and unsightly edges are formed by snow.
4. The shapeless footbed creates a shuffling gait that even experts warn against.
5. Orthopedic surgeons see the stress on the joints and cartilage damage because the boots do not give the feet any stability. In the worst case, knock knees can arise or the kneecap has to be realigned.
