UGG Clem Sandals Review

Spring is almost here and that means sandal season. This year, I'm stocking up on platform sandals and slides. They're easy to slip on and off for my WFH style, and the extra height without the discomfort is always appreciated. Favorite footwear brand UGG recently released a new sandal for spring 2021 called the Clem sandal. While you may know and adore UGG for their cozy sheepskin boots and slippers, they've quietly cornered the sandal market as well. Their new Clem sandal is a rugged platform slide (retail price $110) with adjustable straps and all the comfort you've come to expect from UGG. It comes in black leather, olive suede, and rose quartz suede, all of which are selling out very quickly. Keep reading for my UGG Clem review with tips on fit and sizing.

March 2021 update - The UGG Clem sandals are sold out, but you can sign up for restock notifications here and shop some styles here, including olive green size 7 and olive green size 5.5.


In my quest to replace my Birkenstocks as my go-to spring and summer sandals of choice, I opted for the rose quartz Clem sandals in my usual UGG size 7. The soft pink color and tan outsole are nice neutrals which pair well with muted pastels, ditsy florals, soft grey shades, and summer whites.

Fit and Sizing

The Clem sandals come in half sizes. In my experience, they run true to size in terms of length and width. The straps have some adjustability, so you can customize the width a little bit. I plan on wearing mine barefoot, and the fit on my size 7 pair is great. If your feet are narrow, then I'd advise sizing down a half size. If you plan on wearing them with thick socks, I'd go up a half size. Otherwise, take your true shoe size.

Quality and Comfort

Dual density EVA foam lends the Clem sandal comfort and long-term wearability. They look heavy, but they are actually lightweight and easy to walk in. The EVA outsole has nice traction for wearing indoors or outdoors. The platform is about 2.5", so they give you height and comfort at the same time. I wore them barefoot for a few hours at home and did not get any blisters. They are comfortable right out of the box; I'm happy to report that they don't need any breaking in.

The straps are suede, while the lining is textile. The footbed is smooth and comfortable, but I haven't worn these on a hot day, so I don't know how they'll perform with potentially sweaty feet. If UGG releases more colors, I may get another pair since these are so versatile.

The pale pink color is exactly what I wanted for pairing with cargo pants, midi dresses, bike shorts, cropped straight leg denim, and joggers. The UGG logo is printed on one strap, but it's only visible up close. I look forward to seeing if UGG releases more colors and prints for summer.
