They may not be the most aesthetically pleasing footwear–hey, they’re not exactly Louboutins–but they’re comfy as all get-out and clearly high in demand if holiday shoppers’ purchase habits are anything to go by.
It probably also helps that they’re slightly less expensive than Louboutins.
According to data from Experian Marketing Services, Uggs have been named the most popular and most searched-for item this holiday season, beating out such heavyweights as the iPad, Kindle, and even America’s sweetheart Barbie!
It’s kind of unbelievable considering how Uggs have been the butt of many a joke in recent years. Plus, their numbers were down significantly earlier in the year.
Looks like the highly polarizing sheepskin boots are poised for a major comeback!
And, anyway, if they’re good enough for Adriana Lima, they’re good enough for the rest of us!
