Thanks to their early 2000s takeover,
some many of us still associate Ugg boots with velour sweatsuits and paparazzi pictures of Paris Hilton. And while a number of women (and men) still love their classic Uggs, the Australian brand has quietly been giving itself a more fashion-forward revamp for the past few seasons - and their newest boots prove it's working.
Meet the new wave of Ugg boots: the Kasen, which come in chestnut and black colorways as well as short and tall styles. The anything-but-basic shearling boot features a short stacked heel for the perfect amount of height. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, an ambassador for the brand, was one of the first to debut the new boots while out and about. The model wore the chestnut Kasen boots with a pair of blue jeans and a plush camel coat.
