I was skeptical about UGG products, thinking they were popular with the younger folk because of fashion trends. Then I bought a pair. These are the best slippers I have ever owned. They are very well made, comfortable, and they keep my feet warm but not too hot. The wool liner is still in great condition after a half year of wear. Now I am looking at more UGG shoes.

Fun, comfortable shoes - only minus is that despite the name, if one looks closely at the label, the shoes are made in China. I love shoes sold by Arthur Beren. Have been a client for decades.
Measurements & Ordering The Right Size
Shoe sizes vary by style—they run long, short, wide or narrow. We test fit size 8.5 shoes, and sometimes recommend ordering a larger or smaller size. Look for this information on any product page. (I.e. Fit: Runs long, buy a half size down.)
B or N =
D or M =
2E or EE or W =
3E or EEE =
Get sized. Regularly by a professional, using a Brannock device preferably. It’s important to measure the width of the foot and to take into consideration the type of arch you have.
Wear the right socks. Consider your plans and activities and wear the most breathable and absorbent socks or stockings for the occassion with the appropriate footwear. If going bare, keep clean and dry.
Check the construction. Look at the sole and heel of the shoe to see what kind of terrain the shoe is meant to handle. Also look inside to assess the lining and upper elements of the shoe, checking to see how they will address your needs. A leather lined shoe will generally last longer than one without lining, though the unlined shoe may be lighter and more appreciated in warmer climates.
Walk around. When trying on a new pair of shoes, always try on both pair and walk around a bit - always on a clean indoor surface of course. Flex your arch and toes to see if the shoes feel good while you move about. Try shoes on in the afternoon or evening. Feet swell to their largest as the day progresses, so you will get a better reading of your true size once your feet have warmed up to the day.
Allow some time to break in a great pair of leather shoes--the best ones are a little tight in the beginning. By doing it right you’ll have shoes that are molded to your feet perfectly. See the How To Care tab for advice on proper shoe maintenance.
If the upper of the shoe is made of elastic or an elastic-blend fabric the shoe should fit snugly and need no breaking in. Shoes should never squeeze or cramp your toes.
If your shoes are slightly too loose in the in-step, a toe pad can be added to create a better fit, preventing any unnecessary friction.
For more heel and arch support or extra cushioning, consider custom fitted orthotic inserts, or even some gel inserts to target the problem.
