Uggs are like wearing clouds on your feet. They're as comfortable as slippers and as warm as duvets, but they can resemble something you'd pair with a terry-cloth robe. As the temperature drops and you find yourself yearning to put on your fluffy Uggs, you should know that there are other options that will keep your feet toasty and ensure you look polished.
Rainboots are a great option for both style and comfort. Not only are they waterproof, but they come in hundreds of colors and shapes so it's easy to find a pair that is appropriate for almost any occasion. Motorcycle boots are another great choice. These flat boots are perfect if you're on the go, sturdy enough to walk through puddles and, best of all, the leather softens over time, making them more comfortable with every wear. Suede boots can be another great alternative as the flexible fabric moulds to your feet quicker than ordinary leather. If you're adamant about wearing boots with a lining, many fall and winter styles provide fur or faux-fur interiors to cushion your tootsies (and yes, they are just as cozy as the shearling Ugg lining).
