Whether we like it or not, UGGs are back in style, and I’m not mad about it. I religiously wore my boots from 2005 to 2011, and I’m ready to bring comfy footwear back, especially when it’s freezing outside.
These aren’t your millennium UGGs, though. The popular styles of winter 2022-2023 have a platform sole, and TikTok is obsessed. They’re also $150, but the fact that they’ve gone viral is probably why they sold out. If you like the look and want it for less, here’s a secret: You can get a similar-looking pair of platform booties on Amazon. Nobody has to know they’re not the real deal — unless you want to brag about what a great deal you got.
The CUSHIONAIRE Hippy Suede Platform Boots feature genuine, water-resistant suede on the outside and super soft faux fur on the inside. They also have memory foam padding inside, so these booties just got comfier. You can get them in classic chestnut brown, black, taupe or gray for only $79.99.
While they’re not exactly inexpensive, they are more affordable than UGGs. They’re also not a cheap knockoff that will only last you one season. CUSHIONAIRE has a reputation for making good shoes.
“I got these because I couldn’t make myself pay for the UGGs, and I’m so glad I got these instead,” wrote one Amazon reviewer. “I have a couple pairs of UGGs and I have found this brand to be more durable than the real UGGs! They fit great and keep my feet warm, but don’t make them sweat!”
It’s only a matter of time before the CUSHIONAIRE Hippy Suede Platform Boots sell out, too. Add them to your cart before it snows and you wish you had a pair of warm, comfy boots.
