UGG® Australia Beacon Boot (Men)
I wish they made 1/2 sizes. I ordered a size 8, but the boots are a bit tight across the top of my foot. even without an added arch support. I exchanged them for a size 9, and I intend to wear them with wool arch supports inside. I hope they fit ok. They are very warm, which is why i bought them. (I travel to Europe every week and need a boot to keep my feet warm in the winter.) I just hope the size 9 will fit Okay. The new pair should arrive next week. They are very nice boots with exceptional warmth and comfort.
What is it with men and Uggs?
My husband was adamantly opposed to Uggs, in a conceptual sort of way. He said "No way! They're for girls. Don't buy them. I won't wear them!" Well, guess what? He hasn't taken them off since, except to sleep! He has worn them to the horse farm as well as to the boardroom. He wears them with faded Levis and cashmere trousers. They are masculine, chic, comfortable, and the brown has a lovely patina. He has thanked me for not listening to him. He said "I had no idea that Uggs were so great!" Now, I am on a quest to make him sharp. I will buy him what I think is cool, regardless of his protests, starting with another pair of Uggs!! Incidentally, he is a 13, but I got these puppies in a 12 and perfection!!
UGGs for Husband
Let me start by saying that we went to Nordstrom to purchase my husband the 'Hartsville' or the 'Rockville II' and left with the 'Beacon'. He wanted something that was completely lined with shearling, but did NOT initially like the look of the Beacon or Wrangell (too bulky looking). He tried on the Hartsville and Rockville II (which are not completely lined). He really liked the Hartsville and was going to purchase. He tried on the 'Beacon' just out of curiosity, and would not take them off :-) They did NOT look too bulky once he had them on. He loves them! He is usually a 10 1/2 - 11, he purchased the 10 (seems they run big like my womens classics do).
This is the second pair we have purchased. The first lasted for over 8 years of heavy use. Nice enough to wear under dress pants at work but goes well with jeans.
