Style and Look

Bearpaw has visible stitching while Ugg features smooth stitching.

Bearpaw shoes tend to be heavier and sturdier than Uggs. Though Uggs are more comfortable due to the extra layer of fleece inside.

  • I already own quite a few pairs of UGG boots but my aunt gave me a pair of bearpaw’s so I’m gone find out if spending the extra money all this time was worth it

  • I got a pair of Bearpaw Boo boots and I love them. I normally wear an 8.5 or 9 and I ordered a size 9 in the Bearpaw Boo boot and it fits me great but I always wear thick socks with all my boots.. Sooo if you wear thick socks in the winter I would suggest you order your regular size.

  • Everyone around me wears uggs. I’d say 90% of their boots look stained and missed shaped as if they had been stumping through a swamp with indoor house slippers on. As I disagreed with the statement of them being less durable since my bearpaws still look great after a ton of wear and tear over the course of 8 years. While owning 7 pairs of shoes from them and just ordering 3 more styles soon to come I have not had to throw one pair out since I’ve became a costumer with them.

  • I just took out my Bearpaw boots for the first time this year because of a snowstorm. I dropped them on the floor and it sounded like a lead weight had dropped. I noticed a few pieces of the sole broke off. The material is as hard as brick and very slippery when I put them on. They sounded like tap shoes when I walked to the door.
    I’ve had Uggs for years and never have had a problem like this. I was extremely careful when I went out to shovel the deck aware that I could slip and NO ONE would find me. They’re going in the trash but I felt I had to write something about this, somewhere. I didn’t use them much so the rest of the boot looks relatively new. Has anyone else had this problem and is it fixable?

  • I love the Uggs most but noticed using lyocell mix in newer boots. The bearpaw’s insoles wear down much faster and wool’s fluff is gone much more fast than older uggs. The uggs look worn on outside faster but the insole, inner lining’s superior wear and durability are worth the price. I always purchase from Uggs Closet (open now) and usually get free shipping code and certificates $20-$40 off from previous years purchase. Kids deals are great!
