UGG Fluff Sugar Platform Sandals Review

If you love UGG but want vegan and/or eco-friendly footwear, take note. This month UGG released a new collection of footwear made with plant-based, carbon-neutral materials called "Plant Power." The collection includes three fashion-forward styles: the Fluff Sugar Sandal, the Fluff Sugar Platform, and the Neumel Natural boots. As a fan of the popular UGG Fluffita and Fluff Yeah platforms, the Fluff Sugar Platforms instantly appealed to me. They're designed with low impact materials, and even the packaging is eco-friendly. The sole of these platforms is made of SugarSole™ foam which consists of renewable sugarcane (hence the name Fluff Sugar). They come in three cotton candy-esque colors for spring: white, yellow, and pink. I have a pair in pink and will be sharing details on the new UGG Fluff Sugar Platforms in this review. Keep reading for tips on fit, sizing, and quality.

UGG Fluff Sugar box


Everything about the UGG Fluff Sugar shoes from production to packaging and shipping is intended to reduce its environmental impact. First off, the shoes ship in their own box to decrease packaging and waste. The box is different from other UGG boxes in the way it closes and is sealed (with two flaps on top). The paper inside is printed with educational messaging about the "from plant to plush" process. Even the size tag inside the shoe is made from different materials than other UGG products. The lining and upper of the shoes are made from TENCEL™ Lyocell sourced from responsibly-harvested trees. They feel just as soft and fluffy as the best selling UGG Scuffette slippers and the plush UGG Fluff Yeah slippers. This is a shoe you can feel good about.

Fit and Sizing

The Fluff Sugar Platforms run true to size. I went with my true size 7 and the elastic strap fits just right when I wear them with and without socks. These only come in whole sizes, and I recommend taking your true size. As you wear them, the Tencel™ lyocell lining will flatten out a bit. I occasionally brush the footbed with a dedicated hair brush (for my shoes) to keep it fluffy.

Quality and Comfort

These platforms are super lightweight, have nice cushioning, have slightly bouncy SugarSole™ soles (that feel like your lightest running sneakers), and feel great on the foot. The heel height is 3", and I find them easy and stable to walk in. The elastic strap holds your foot firmly in place. They have one strap across the vamp which has cutouts on each side, creating a thick capital "I" shape over the foot. (The Fluff Sugar Slide sandals are similar, but they have two straps and a lower heel 2" height.) They have a luxurious hand feel, and like the Fluff Yeah slippers, they are super easy to slide on. The Fluff Sugar Platforms are $120, while the Fluff Sugar sandals are $110. I went with the platforms for the extra height.

Style

I love the shaggy, exaggerated appearance for my WFH looks, and I'm currently eyeing these in white. They have a fun, edgy look that brings some fun and whimsy to my casual wardrobe.
