By now, we're pretty used to the early 2000's trends making a comeback - but we never saw this one coming! UGGs were all the rage back in the day - basically every teen had a pair of the classic tan brown boots. And now, nearly 20 years later, the obsession with the sheepskin shoes has returned. Here's how.

From Kendall Jenner to Dua Lipa, every model, singer, and Tiktok influencer has been rocking the trend. Believe it or not, it wasn't a new collab or even a redesign that got people back on the bandwagon. Instead, we all just remembered how much we used to love the shoe, more specifically how easily it can be thrown on and matched nearly every outfit, especially the UGG minis!

Unlike the return of low-waisted jeans, baguette bags, or hair clips, the newfound love for UGGs has nothing to do with fashion. It's not like wearing Yeezys or Crocs where people wear it because it's ironically "ugly" or "subversively cool." It's more about comfort, and the fact that they look cute is just an added bonus! In the past few years, ever since working from home has become the new normal, comfort has influenced many of our fashion choices. From sweatsuits to athleisure sets, it seems like we'll do anything to avoid having to dress up. It seems like everyone has opted to wear clothes they can freely move around, over ones that may look good to the eye but are uncomfortable. Just us?

We've found a new way to leave the house with a shoe that is similar to a slipper yet is socially acceptable. And honestly, how could we not love that? Black, pink, brown, cream, nude, blue, the shoe comes in a variety of different colors and sizes. The options are truly endless, meaning literally any outfit you wear will match your new comfy boots. Throw them on with Lululemon leggings or even Skims biker shorts, and you're ready to hit the streets. Either get the 2000's fan favorite, the high boot - or join the 2022 crowd and get the mini or even the ultra mini.
