  • UGGs?

    Hey hope someone reads this! Gifted a pair of UGGs, knee length, w buttons, and can't get my dang feet in them far enough to get my heel in. Have any gals out there modified boots like these w a zipper, perhaps? These are "Bailly" style and un button down to instep. Any input welcome...I have high instep and big heel...the size is not an issue. Help???

      Thanks gjnl. I may do that, but probably will just return. Had a para friend who had his cowboy boots modified w a zipper up the back but I have ballerina feet on paraplegic legs ...lol. Its really hard to find shoes that I can get over my instep. Don't know if a zipper would solve the problem. But I'll keep lookin.

        I had the same issue with UGG boots. They're surprisingly hard to get on and off. Maybe a different style? But I haven't found one that works.

          A friend gave me a pair a few years back and I took them to a cobbler - I have wide flat feet with high insteps - and the cobbler basically cut them down the front almost all the way to the toes, made some excellent binding and a very lightweight chamois flap and put buttons and kind of loops on them so I could just pull the button over the loop. They are excellently warm and cozy. You need a really good cobbler who is used to your shoes and feet, I would think. I have tried to get another pair modified like that up where I live now and they kind of flinch and back away.

              I have several pair, try the shorter ones, much easier and be sure the thumb hole is on the back that's key to getting them on.
