This is an honest review. I was gifted these boots from River Island.
I was recently contacted by someone from River Island to check out their products. I had never shopped there before because they used to only carry straight sizes and I am plus sized. A while ago the British retailer introduced plus sizes to their product line. They come in sizes 14-24, and are actually really cute. That isn’t much of a surprise considering how fashionable the straight size line is.
I have been featured on Make Me Over Eb and The Curvy Fashionista.
A few weeks ago I was offered a chance to review some Ugg-like boots by a company called Whooga. Whooga is an Australian company that uses Australian Merino fleece. The boots are made and shipped from China. They did give me a free pair of boots, but as you all know, that doesn’t affect my review.
I love my boots. Unlike my other UGG Australia boots that I own, I don’t have to go up a size because the Whooga boots fit tight on my feet and are true to size. The Merino fleece is so soft and warm. Just like Uggs, these boots keep your feet warm even when the temperature hits 30 below. The shoes look just like my Ugg boots, except they have a Whooga tag on the back.
The only problem I had with them was the fact that the box had been a little bent up from shipping. When I opened my box, the shoes were a little rumpled. Whooga sent the shoes with stuffing and cardboard in them, so that helped a lot. Once I took the boots out of the box and let them stand on their own, they fluffed out. Now they look great.
Whooga boots come in all different sizes, heights, textures, and colors for kids and adults.
Would I recommend this company as an Ugg alternative…Yes!
