Following the successful Italian-made Classic Luxe™ Collection that launched in August, the Classic Slim™ Collection's Kristin style will be available starting today on www.uggaustralia.com in celebration of Oprah's Favorite Things.
"We're honored to celebrate the launch of our new UGG Slim Classic Collection with the news Oprah has made the Kristin boot one of her favorite things for 2015," said UGG® Global Marketing Director Nicks Ericsson. "Being a part of Oprah's list is a testament to the quality, craftsmanship and premium materials that make wearing UGG such a uniquely satisfying experience for our consumers."
From a picnic in the park, a weekend away or a night on the town, these boots are destined to be the go-to boot of everyone's fall wardrobe.
"Driven by insights we've uncovered from our customers, I can confidently say that our new Classic Slim Collection is the next evolution of the UGG Classic our customers have been waiting for," says Vice President and Creative Director Leah Larson. "We know our customers will always have a special place for their original Classic Boots but are ready for something fresh that can transition into more everyday wear. Our new Classic Slim delivers the same superior comfort and warmth of the original Classic boot, but with a sleeker silhouette to create this beautiful mash-up of UGG trusted DNA and modern style. I can't wait to finally see the boots on feet this holiday."
First introduced in 1978 to warm the feet of surfers after coming out of the water, the UGG® Classic boot has been a staple of people's wardrobe for almost 40 years for its unparalleled comfortable, relaxed fit and luxurious warmth as a result of using the world's finest selection of Twinface sheepskin. The latest iteration of the original Classic, Classic Slim™ offers the same legendary warmth and comfort of the original Classic but with added arch support featuring UGGpure™ that naturally wicks away moisture and helps promote comfort and stability for all day wear. The boot to wear for all occasions, Classic Slim™ remains flexible while also delivering increased traction and support thanks to the inclusion of Treadlite by UGG™, the brand's proprietary outsole compound.
The Classic Slim™ collection is available in two heel heights and four shaft heights including: the 12.5-inch tall Kara, the 9-inch short Amie, the 9-inch short Michelle, the 5.5-inch mini Kristin, the 5.5-inch mini Cory, and the 3.75-inch lace-up Bethany. Each new style is constructed with luxurious suede and Twinface sheepskin that have been pre-treated to provide protection and water repellency.
Supporting the launch of the new Classic Slim™, the brand has updated their home page to offer consumers up to the minute styling tips and looks for the season.
