The Spring Versions of Uggs

Posted April 23, 2013 by Marcy Twete in Building Your Brand
Though there’s still snow on the ground in much of the country, the sun is beginning to poke out from behind the clouds, and we’re all anticipating Spring. Like many American women, I spent the winter in Uggs (and while my feet love the comfort and warmth of this amazing Australian product, the time has come to retire them for the winter and to move to more seasonally appropriate footwear.

But how can you transition out of those cozy, comfy Uggs while at the same time not beating your poor feet to a Springtime pulp? Try these alternatives that are just as comfortable.

I lived in Minnesota for nearly a decade, and I can’t say enough about the best moccasins in the world – Minnetonkas. Get this incredible coral pair and many other colors at Zappos for $39.95.

Boat Shoes

They’ve been a staple in the world of boating for years, but now they’re appealing to mass market customers. Sperry Top Siders are comfortable and versatile. Get them on Zappos for $66.95 and up.


I know, I know, not everyone loves themselves a Birkenstock. But they’re not just for “tree huggers” anymore. Birkenstock has more simple and less clunky styles now than ever before. The Gizeh sandal pictured below is my favorite. I have it in two colors, and have been eying this indigo for summer 2013. Get them on Birkenstock’s site for $89.95.


Uggs for Summer

If you really can’t abandon your Uggs, it’s worth trying on a pair of Ugg sandals. These are my favorite on the website for $100.
