We know, we know – they’re not your favourite footwear in the world, but Uggs do have their fans, and it would seem that Alloy are among them: we found these "sweater boots" retailing for $49.50, and looking pretty darn similar to Ugg’s crocheted boots, on the left of the picture above, which are rather more expensive at $120. What’s the difference? Well, not having tried either of them, we can’t tell you, but we do know which pair we’d buy – IF, of course, we were planning on buying a pair of knitted, knee high boots in the first place. Which we’re not. Obviously.
