UGG Classic Ultra Mini Boots Review - Leopard Print

Attention, shoe lovers! Boot season has arrived and it's time to get your cozy footwear wardrobe ready for fall. I've always favored ankle boots for their versatility, so when UGG introduced a new style of its beloved Classic boots this season called the Classic Ultra Mini, they instantly caught my eye. They retail for $140 and are perfect for your work from home looks, your loungewear days, or pretty much any fall or winter day. The extra low shaft height makes them chic enough to pair with slouchy socks, denim, bike shorts, bodycon dresses, cropped trousers, leggings, and joggers. 

Joan Smalls and Emily Ratajkowsi have been spotted in the chestnut version. #legsfordays

The new
UGG Classic Ultra Mini has the same comfort and plush sheepskin of the UGG Classic Mini, but with a more leg-lengthening fit. My favorite version of the Classic Ultra Mini is this leopard print ($150), which is sure to be a best seller in no time. I bought a pair in my usual UGG size, and will be sharing my thoughts on fit, sizing, and quality in this review.

UGG Classic Ultra Mini boots leopard

Appearance 

The leopard print style has a cowhair texture, making them more dressy and elevating them from the twinface sheepskin (suede) that you find on Classic UGG boots. The topline is slightly higher in the front than the back, while the rest of the construction is similar to the Classic Mini boots. I prefer the lower shaft height because I'm petite, and I find them more flattering to wear with skinny jeans. I can appreciate how they show just a flash of ankle when worn with cropped denim and no socks.

Quality

The uppers have nice, rich color and a consistent print. One disadvantage is that this style is harder to clean because of the cowhair texture, so that's something to be mindful of before purchasing. I always use a suede protector on my UGGs, but will refrain from doing so because these uppers are made of different materials. (They do come pre-treated with a water repellency treatment like many other UGG styles.) I plan to spot clean these as needed with mild soap and water. I also plan to wear these indoors and will not wear them in the rain. (My go-to UGGs for rain are the Palomar sneaker and the Birch boots.) 

Given the lower shaft height, these are more optimal for warmer climates than colder ones, and they're also ideal for transitional seasons. If I lived in a cold climate, these would likely get a lot less wear. In my area, it's warm enough that I'm able to wear sandals year round.

Sizing and Comfort

For my feet, the Classic Ultra Mini boots run true to UGG's Classic sizing. I prefer to wear them without socks because the wool blend lining is so cozy. These do take some effort to pull on because of a small top entry, so the rear pull tab is especially helpful. The uppers are also more rigid due to the cowhair construction, but I expect them to break in nicely over time. An advantage of the lower shaft height is that it makes them easier to take off. 

Fit tip: If you have a high arch or are between sizes, I'd size up. It's better to have them too big than too small, and you can always wear them with socks if they are on the big side.

UGG Tasman Slippers Review

The UGG Tasman slipper is UGG's best-selling slipper, and as an avid footwear buyer, I think it deserves its own blog review. The Tasman is not your typical sheepskin slipper. It's constructed on the same Treadlite sole as classic UGG boots, so not only is it comfortable, it's also durable and suitable for wearing both indoors and outdoors. Since the holidays are coming up, it's a thoughtful gift idea. Furthermore, it's available in a wide variety of colors and sizes for the entire family, with classic chestnut being the most popular version. The casual slip-on style looks right at home with a robe or loungewear, but it also styles well with casual denim, joggers, or leggings. The signature Tasman braid embroidery at the ankle gives it a unique and recognizable boost of style. Slippers with style? UGG nailed it.

This new UGG Tasman in leopard print is my favorite and sure to be sold out soon. You can never go wrong with anything from UGG in leopard print. Their new Neumel boot in leopard is amazing, too. 

Fit and Sizing

The Tasman slipper runs true to size. It does stretch up a little bit with wear since the uppers are suede. Additionally, the sheepskin insoles flatten a little bit with wear, making them more roomy.  In my opinion, the Tasman feels much better when worn barefoot, as the lining and insole are made of the plush wool sheepskin that UGG is known for. If you are a half size, then I'd size up rather than down. They are easy to slip on, although I have to use my finger to help get my foot in without collapsing the back of the heel. Comfort tip: you may have to get used to the feeling of the trim at the lower back area of the heel, but that varies by person. If you are a Women's size 5, 6, 7, or 8, then some of the larger Kid's sizes will fit, and the bonus is that the UGG Kid's slippers are slightly lower in price.

Quality

If treated well, the Tasman slipper will be a long-wearing investment that should outlast several seasons of regular wear. At $100, they aren't an impulse buy, but they are certainly worth the price. The uppers can be treated with a suede protector if you plan on wearing them outdoors. To keep them clean, use a suede brush, and avoid harsh cleaning products that might harm the dyed suede. The lighter pink, blue, and green Tasman slippers show stains, dirt, and scuffs much more easily than the grey or chestnut ones. The black Tasman slippers show dust, lint, and hair more than the other colors, which is easy to remedy with a link roller.

Deckers x Lab K-ST 21 Low Sneakers Review

Leave it to the team at Deckers x Lab to create a performance athletic shoe that not only turns heads but is so innovative in design and materials that it compares to nothing else on the market. If you haven't heard of Deckers x Lab, it's a new label from Deckers, the parent company of UGG, Teva, Hoka One One, Koolaburra, and Sanuk. (So you know this label will have both comfort and style.) I was sent a pair of the fancy new K-ST 21 Low sneakers by Deckers x Lab and I'll be sharing my thoughts on fit, performance, and style in this review.

Deckers K-ST 21 Low sneakers for women


Appearance and Performance

It's immediately apparent that the K-ST 21 Low looks different from most sneakers due to the extended sole. According to Deckers x Lab, "the plush, angled heel catches you and immediately transfers downward energy into forward momentum.The heel also is the first point of contact to a wide platform (aka sole) resulting in unstoppable stability. The heel immediately rocks you into the midfoot where it is amplified by our who’s-the-nutter-who-came-up-with-this? Carbon Bow Technology™ suspension system. The Carbon Bow transfers the energy into the toe box. This roll completes the rocker, sending you off into your next step." 

Designed to propel your stride, these shoes merge a light, athletic feel with extremely responsive movement. At $199, these are priced higher than most athletic shoes. Are they worth it? I recently wore them for a HIIT workout, inclined treadmill walk, and for an outdoor walk in the park. I noticed that in my HIIT movements, these shoes felt super responsive and helped me to glide through my cardio circuits. As much as I love exercise, performing skaters, jumps squats, plank jacks, and one-armed burpees is rarely enjoyable, but these shoes helped propel me through the most explosive plyo movements. My beloved Hoka One One Cliftons (as amazing as they are) didn't feel this good. Verdict: these are an investment, but if you're an active person looking for an unmatched performance shoe, this is it. The difference between these and most sneakers is dramatic.

Deckers x Lab K-ST 21 Low sneakers for women

I was initially skeptical that the long angled heel would be awkward for walking, but after a walk in the park and a few miles on the treadmill, I quickly appreciated their thoughtful design. I didn't even notice the angled heel when these were on, and they felt better to exercise in than traditional athletic footwear. It's like my feet were gliding. Another advantage of the K-ST 21 Low sneakers was that my feet felt noticeably less fatigued after my workouts. I even spent and extra 15 minutes on the treadmill. (That rarely happens!) There's so much technical design and innovation with the K-ST 21 Low that it helps to read the shoe's description.

According to the Deckers x Lab e-commerce site, features include:

Anatomic, gender specific medium width performance running last

Cordura® ballistic nylon and Matryx® upper for unparalleled durability and light-weight breathable foothold 

Adjusting fit lycra tongue and toe box

Under Foot Geometry: 120 - 80 - 100 mm, 4.5 mm drop, 16.5 - 21mm stack height 

Xponent+ Midsole featuring IM EVA foam and Carbon Bow Technology™ suspension system 

Extended angled heel with Meta-Rocker geometry that delivers an uptempo and propulsive ride

Sticky rubber outsole for active grip


Deckers x Lab K-St 21 low soles



Materials and Fit

I found the K-ST 21 Low to run true to size. I wore them with thin cotton/poly blend socks, thick cotton socks, and also barefoot. All variations were comfortable, with no uncomfortable overheating or slippage. My feet stayed securely in place and there was less strain and impact on the ball of foot area. Just like with the other shoes I reviewed from Deckers x Lab, there's thick padding at the back of the heel which ensures you'll never get blisters when wearing them. There's no break-in period. These shoes are comfortable from the very first step. As far as materials, the uppers are both breathable and lightweight. No sweaty feet here! Bonus - these shoes come with an extra set of insoles. One pair of insoles is PU plush memory foam, and the other is EVA memory foam with low compression for a shock-free experience.

Design notes: The geometry specs are printed on the shoe. The angled sole has a smooth, firm feel when pinched with your fingers.

Deckers x Lab K-ST 21 Low sneakers

From a fashion and design perspective, these are futuristic, sleek-looking sneakers. There's a mesh panel on the sides, a bit of animal print texture, and just the right amount of white on the soles to break up the all-black uppers. There's even a gap between the sole and the uppers near the arch of the foot. 

Modern looks, versatility, comfort, and performance-based construction are what the K-ST 21 Low sneakers achieve. They'll pair well with my printed leggings, slim joggers, runner shorts, and my casual fashion looks. I'm looking forward to putting many more miles and powering through many more HIIT workouts in these shoes.

Deckers x Lab KO-Z Snpr Low Wedge and X-Scape NBK Low Shoe Review

Seven days a week you can find me working out in my Hoka One One sneakers. Whether it's a bike ride, a walk, kickboxing workout, weight lifting, or HIIT session, I always look to my Hoka One One Cliftons for maximum cushioning and superior comfort. So when Deckers (the parent company of beloved footwear brands Hoka One One, UGG, Teva, Koolabura by UGG, and Sanuk) reached out to me to introduce their new Deckers x Lab label, I was intrigued. I've nurtured a passion for footwear since my days in elementary school, when purple Converse Chucks were my go-to shoes. Fast forward to adulthood, where comfort and quality take precedence, and Hoka One One dominates my activewear.

A little background information about Deckers x Lab:

Deckers Lab is the brainchild of Jean-Luc Diard, the founder of Hoka One One. Deckers calls Deckers x Lab "a label rather than a brand", therefore, they are not limited to one type of product or application. Innovation in comfort and performance is a key value of the brand. If you're familiar with Hoka One One, Teva, or UGG, then you know that comfort is their specialty.

I received two pairs of Deckers x Lab shoes: the X-Scape NBK Low (a sleek and modern-looking sneaker) and the KO-Z SNPR Low Wedge (a slip-on sneaker and recovery shoe hybird).

X-Scape NBK Low
Unboxing

While unboxing, I was immediately impressed with the packaging and attention to detail. The box is minimal on the outside, yet printed with eye-catching industrial-style details on the inside. 


the X-Scape NBK low sneaker in white/light grey

Appearance and Performance

The X-Scape NBK low (retail $160) is a performance sneaker with the look of a lifestyle sneaker, and the feel of UGG slippers. I wore these out grocery shopping, for a HIIT workout, and for a walk in the park (with a mask of course). While the ball-of-foot cushioning does not match my Hoka One One Cliftons, these are excellent for walking, low impact exercise, and everyday wear. The neutral grey and white colors are both classic and versatile, and match a lot of my activewear. Note the lack of conspicuous logos/branding, giving these sneakers a high end feel with a slightly industrial-meets-quiet luxury vibe. The underfoot geometry specs are actually printed on the outsole. Every part of this shoe demonstrates comfort and attention to detail, from the padding in the heel counter lining to the printed honeycomb soles, and the perforated uppers.


Decker Lab X-Scape NBK low soles



Materials and Fit 

The X-Scape NBK low is made of nubuck leather lined with looped wool (like terry cloth but softer) for amazing warmth and comfort. I wore them both barefoot and with thick socks on a warm summer day. I'm pleased to report that there was no breaking in and no blisters. They fit well both with socks and without, but I think they feel better barefoot because of the soft, breathable materials. The insoles are removable and there's an internal H brace support. Once you put these on, you won't want to take them off. Deckers x Lab managed to merge the comfort of their UGG slippers with their Hoka One One sneakers for the best of both worlds. The icing on the cake - these have the signature Hoka One One Meta-Rocker construction, which propels the foot forward and makes walking a breeze. I envision wearing these with both activewear and casual everyday looks, since the silhouette and color scheme are versatile. 




KO-Z SNPR Low Wedge

Appearance and Performance

The KO-Z SNPR low wedge (retail $120) is a slip-on sneaker with all the easy vibes of a slipper. It's the perfect shoe for travel, since it's effortless to slip on and off. The toe shape is part ankle boot, part sleek sneaker. Like the X-Scape NBK low, it also has a looped wool removable insole. The neutral colors blend with a lot of my wardrobe, and while slip-on styles are not my favorites, this one has the added benefit of a wedge which adds about 2" of height. Just like your favorite UGG boots, this shoe has a water repellent treatment, making it perfect for the fall and winter months. In true Deckers Hoka One One form, there is Meta-Rocker geometry which makes them so easy to wear and so hard to take off.

Deckers Lab KO-Z SNPR low wedge


Materials and Fit 

The KO-Z SNPR low wedge is made of EcoTan cow suede, with a wool interior, EVA foam midsole, and a rubber sponge outsole. Comfort is a consideration of every part of this shoe, form the way your foot feel against the insole to the way it propels your foot forward and cushions the impact. As far as fit, I found these to run narrow when the insole is in place and I wore them without socks. For a looser fit, I removed the insole and it was perfect. So if you have wide feet, I recommend going up in size. Fortunately, these do come in half sizes.

There are currently six styles of shoes for Men and six for Women on the Deckers x Lab site. As they expand the label, I'll be keeping my eye on new styles and future innovations.

How to Shop LoveShackFancy, Cushnie, and Lisa Marie Fernandez for Target

With all the craziness and bad news going on due to the COVID-19 pandemic and protests, there's something exciting to brighten your day and your summer if you're a Target fan and fashion lover. Make some room in your closet and get ready to stash your sweatpants away. In true collaboration form, Target is launching a Designer Dress Collection featuring LoveShackFancy, Cushnie, and Lisa Marie Fernandez. Woo hoo! Fancy floral dresses, here I come (even if I have to wear my dresses at home for the time being)! As an avid wearer of botanical blooms, I'm particularly excited for all the beauty of LoveShackFancy


July 18, 2020 update -  I currently have available for purchase:

LoveShackFancy Phoebe dress in 4 ($100)

LoveShackFancy Penelope dress in S ($100)

LoveShackFancy Sabina dress in L ($100)

LoveShackFancy Esme dress in XL ($100)

Any questions about sizing or buying/trading, just reach out via email:

info at thekeytochic dot com

July 6, 2020 update - The dresses have gone on sale! Shop them at 30% off now.




June 24, 2020 update - Many shoppers are wondering if they will restock LoveShackFancy x Target, and the answer is yes. 

If you look at the LoveShackFancy x Target dress selection each day, is does fluctuate. Individual sizes on a dozen or more of the dresses will come back into stock for short periods of time, so check this page several times per day, especially if you're looking for larger sizes. Here's what's available as of June 24.



There are still many items available, especially for Lisa Marie Fernandez and Cushnie, as well as bigger sizes for LoveShackFancy. 

Quick Fit and Sizing Review for LoveShackFancy x Target and Lisa Marie Fernandez x Target:

Sizing runs slightly large, especially on styles with smocked bodices and off-the-shoulder silhouettes. The Fleur dress and Phoebe dress by LoveShackFancy run more fitted and tailored with no stretch. As far as quality, I recommend washing many of the dresses on gentle cycle and not putting them in the dryer. I spotted many loose threads on my Lou dress after washing it. I prefer the LoveShackFancy cotton styles (Gemma, Amalie, Phoebe, Clementine, Cosette, Camille, Simone, etc.) because they are more breathable during the hotter months than polyester. The Fleur, C√©cile, and Elise are all polyester, so they look more dressy, wrinkle less than the cotton styles, and drape differently. Quality is what you'd expect from Target and many of the dresses have nice details such as pintucking, lace insets, cotton linings, ruffles, and ladder trim. Overall, for the price points, I think the value is good, especially on the LoveShackFancy Clementine, Estelle, Jeanne, and Simone dresses.

In the meantime, study, up, because I'm sharing my tips for how to shop LoveShackFancyxTarget, CushniexTarget, and LisaMarieFernandezxTarget. 




The In-Store Strategy

1. Know where to go.  Plan your shopping well in advance. If you feel up to it, wear a mask and be ready to stand in a physically distanced line (if you are really motivated) on Monday morning June 15th. Use Target's store locator to find the stores near you that'll stock the collection. 

2. Phone it in. Be extra prepared by calling your local store the week before the launch to confirm exactly where in the store it'll be located. It's helpful to know if it will all be merchandised together, or throughout the store. 

3. Be an early bird. You know what they say about the early bird, so it's best to be prepared. Stores open at 8am on launch days. I've found in the past that if I arrive by 7:30 am or earlier, then I'm able to get what I want due to decreased demand in my geographic region. For shoppers who live in large cities, I recommend going at least 1-2 hours before the store opens if you're really motivated to be the first to shop. For shoppers in more suburban or rural areas, the competition and crowds are reduced, but the selection of goods may be as well. In my experience, stock varies widely from store to store. Sometimes metropolitan area stores and stores in higher income neighborhoods carry a better selection of merchandise. It takes some trial and error to find the best stores in your area, and visiting more than one store (if you can) is advised.

4. Bring a buddy. A family member, friend, or significant other might be able to help you get the pieces you want and help you make purchasing decisions. Or even better, have a dedicated friend tackle one store while you visit another. "Divide and conquer" should be your strategy! Arrange to meet in line (while practicing physical distancing) or go to the store together so you're not cutting in line. 

5. Check for go-backs and barter. If your favorite pieces disappear from the racks in a flash, be courteous, be patient, and don't be afraid to chat with employees and other shoppers (from a distance) to politely trade to get what you want! Just respect the rules that they have in store. 

6. Know your limits. There are quantity limits per person on these collections to prevent buying in bulk, and the return policy time frame is shorter (usually 30 days for purchases made in stores). Be aware of these restrictions in order to prevent any buyer's remorse. 

7. Persistence pays off. Target does not restock these collections, but you can still score your favorites. If you don't find what you want after the launch, check back for returns in the coming days, as many shoppers make returns. Don't forget to check the customer service desk and clearance racks for returns in late June and early July. After four or so weeks, the collection might be discounted to 30% (and eventually to 50% or 70%) off, so frequent visits to Target after the launch could really pay off. In mid August 2015, I found some returned Lilly for Target shorts in my size for 50% off. Score! Call your local stores to ask what they have in stock and use social media to buy/trade with others.

8. Consider main line instead. With inflated resale prices on eBay and other platforms after the launch, you can likely buy main line LoveShackFancy, Cushnie, or Lisa Marie Fernandez  for less than the marked up resale prices. Consider shopping the real deal if you aren't able to get your wish list items.


loveshackfancyxtarget dresses


The Online Strategy


1. Learn the lookbookStudy the lookbook carefully to select your favorites, get outfit inspiration, research the sizing, choose colorways, see online exclusives, set a budget, and check the prices

2. Play favorites. Make a list or collage of your favorites to help you stick to your budget and prioritize your potential purchases.

3. Know when and how to shop. Be extra prepared by using more than one web browser, mobile device, etc. Refresh your browser often and have patience. I use Chrome for optimal performance. Expect some glitches and be persistent. Remember that patience is key. 

4. Save your info. As the time to shop online approaches, log onto target.com and have your checkout and payment details saved ahead of time. Bookmark this page now to shop the vineyard vines collection. I've found that Chrome works best on my desktop computer. Clear your cart of any items in order to streamline the checkout process. This reduces the chances of having your cart emptied of any out-of-stock items before you can click the "complete order" button.

5. Click quickly. Shop your top pick(s) first and submit your order right after placing in your cart. Do not shop and fill up your cart. Why? Once an item is in your cart, it's not reserved for you. In order to avoid an item being removed from your cart because it's sold out, you need to click quickly and complete your order! That's why I create a prioritized wish list and try to buy my top picks first.

6. Multi-task. While shopping online, be extra prepared by using more than one web browser, mobile device, etc. Sometimes items become available first on the mobile site, and sometimes they don't. Sometimes some shoppers can see certain items while others cannot. Refresh your browser often and have patience. Items tend to pop up and then disappear during the initial launch. Expect some glitches but don't give up. Remember, persistence and patience are key, and you may have to sacrifice some sleep if you're really motivated to snag your favorites. 

7. Save your info and get a RedCard. If you don't have one already, then consider getting a RedCard. Why? Target RedCard users enjoy free shipping, an extra 30 days to return certain merchandise, and a 5% discount on purchases.
