From the Huggrz Boot Wraps Mail Bag – Stilettos in Rhode Island

Posted on: September 30th, 2011 by Hugrz 1 Comment

Erica, a fan from Pawtucket, RI wrote in to show us that Huggrz Boot Wraps don’t just work on Uggs.  We love how she put our Cream Sherpa furry boot wrap on a boot with a stiletto heel!  We also like how she moved our Huggrz signature button to the outside and wrapped them with our criss-cross suede lacing. Very stylish!

Dear Huggrz:

I bought Huggrz today, and I LOVE THEM!!! I put them on a pair of stiletto boots I had bought a while ago and was kind of bored with, and it makes a whole new boot! Keep it up!

Huggrz spotlighted in boot sweaters and boot covers post by Boutique on Feet

Posted on: September 28th, 2011 by Hugrz

Huggrz Boot Wraps Cream Sweater Boot CoverWe were thrilled to be included in the Boutique-on-Feet blog post about this fall’s hottest boot trend along with the Muk Luk boot sweaters and boot covers. The review featured a picture of our popular Huggrz Cream Knit Sweater boot wrap. From the review entitled A Boot Makeover:

I recently heard about this new trend that I am absolutely loving – boot covers or “boot sweaters”, as they are often called.  Boot covers come in a variety of yarns, fabrics and patterns, that can turn any ordinary boot in to something new and extraordinary.  What a great way to add to your selection of boots, without even having to spend the money on a whole new pair of boots!  Let me tell you . . . I thinks this idea is simply, FABULOUS!

From the Huggrz Boot Wraps’ Mailbag: A Massachusetts Story

Posted on: September 19th, 2011 by Hugrz

Huggrz Boot Wraps on a pair of Ugg Endell BootsThis week we received the following note from a Huggrz fan in Massachusetts:

Dear Huggrz:

I was headed out to a fundraiser this weekend where we were going to be outside dancing to a rock band under the stars. When I saw the temperatures were going to drop into the 40s, I decided it was time to break out my Huggrz. I wanted to be comfortable and warm but still in fashion. So, I slipped a pair of the rabbit faux fur boot wraps on over my 2-year old pair of [shearling] boots and everyone loved them.

My favorite comment was from the woman who said “I want your boots, I just wish they came with a higher heel.”  When I told her that they were Huggrz and that she could put them over any boots she already owned, she was blown away.  Of course, now I won’t be the only one in town with my Huggrz, but that’s all right! - Diane D.

Posted on: September 15th, 2011 by Hugrz

We always get a few questions like: how do these Huggrz boot wraps actually work? We decided to make a quick video to show you exactly how easy it is to dress up your shearling or other boots (even cowboy boots!), with Huggrz boot wraps.

The boot wraps are covers for your boots.  You can update last year’s purchase to look brand new or change your look to suit your mood in as little as 30 seconds. Feeling a little collegiate?

Then you’ll want to check out our faux fur Aspen line.
