Huggrz Boot Wraps featured in USA Today 2011 Holiday Gift Guide

Posted on: December 12th, 2011 by Hugrz

Seems that everyone is gifting boot covers from Huggrz Boot Wraps this year. But, why not? It’s one-size-fits-all, plus many of the styles are warm and cuddly and all are priced at under $50.  Whether it’s for Christmas, Hanukah, or even a winter birthday, we think the woman (or girl) in your life would love some Huggrz!  So does USA Today. Here’s what they had to say:

If you dream of having a closet full of boots, but your finances won’t permit it, take a look at Huggrz boot wraps from DB Designs LLC, Troy, Mich. With many patterns, colors, and prints to choose from, Huggrz slip right over your existing boots to create a whole new look. Originally designed for [shearling]-style boots, they adapt easily to many additional styles.

Huggrz [$28-$44] come in three fashion collections: Aspen, which includes [nine] styles in soft faux fur; Santa Fe, which has [four] styles (black zebra, brown leopard, [baby brown leopard], and grey leopard) in 100% acrylic with a soft fur feel; and Bennington, which offers six styles in classic cotton sweater knit including cable and fair isle.

They can be worn pulled up on tall boots or scrunched down on short ones, or you even can pull them up on your legs to make your short boots look tall. What’s more, these fabulous accessories offer accessories of their own: Faux fur pom poms in mink, beaver, pink panther, and rabbit, and acrylic pom-poms in brown, black, and pink. Each pair has a loop at the top to hand over a button. Criss Cross Lacing also is available to add a finishing touch to your boot warps. In black, tan, and chocolate, these five-foot long laces are accented with silver tone beads.

Luciani, no stranger to the small screen (she is a regular on NBC’s TODAY along with many other outlets and has appeared on the Style Network and the Discovery Channel, to name a few) is a regular fixture in print and online magazines. Of her first Bravo experience, she says, “working with Chris and team was a fashion girl’s dream come true.

Special thanks to Hollywood Baskets for including us in the CMA Country Music Awards nominee gift baskets. They’ve been great at sharing the thanks from the stars like this one from Brad Paisley. We just loved picturing Brad in our Rabbit faux fur boot covers. Although, we’re going to assume he gave them to his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley.
