Huggrz spotlighted in boot sweaters and boot covers post by Boutique on Feet

Huggrz Boot Wraps Cream Sweater Boot CoverWe were thrilled to be included in the Boutique-on-Feet blog post about this fall’s hottest boot trend along with the Muk Luk boot sweaters and boot covers. The review featured a picture of our popular Huggrz Cream Knit Sweater boot wrap. From the review entitled A Boot Makeover:

I recently heard about this new trend that I am absolutely loving – boot covers or “boot sweaters”, as they are often called.  Boot covers come in a variety of yarns, fabrics and patterns, that can turn any ordinary boot in to something new and extraordinary.  What a great way to add to your selection of boots, without even having to spend the money on a whole new pair of boots!  Let me tell you . . . I thinks this idea is simply, FABULOUS!

Change the look of boots with the boot wrap and accessories that look like part of the boot

 

Troy, Michigan. (Sept. 2011) –Down with boring boots, up with affordable style!  HUGGRZ™ boot wraps are the original, patent-pending, product that allows you to wrap your boots to suit your mood, match your outfit or express your personal style.

There is no size to worry about, so HUGGRZ™ boot wraps make a perfect gift for women and tweens throughout the year.

Huggrz Boot Wraps Cream Sweater Boot “This idea started when I needed a warm pair of winter boots, but I could not decide on just one pair.” says Deb Miller, creator of HUGGRZ™ boot wraps.  “I liked the fur ones, the knit ones and the ones with patterns and fringe, but did not want to be locked into one distinctive look. I created HUGGRZ™ boot wraps so I could match my boots to my moods and my outfits without breaking the bank. You just need one pair of great boots, and you can customize your look with the boot wraps. They can be scrunched down on short boots, pulled up on tall boots, or pulled up on your leg to make your short boots look tall. Winter can be long and dreary.  I needed some fun!  The best part for me?  People say NICE BOOTS, not what do you have ON your boots?”  They were designed for shearling-style boots; but they look great on other types of boots as well.

HUGGRZ™ boot wraps are soft, luxurious, easy to change out and affordable.  The boot wraps range from $28-39 a pair. Choose from three collections: Aspen (sophisticated), Bennington (classic) and Santa Fe (playful). The Aspen collection offers 100% man-made fur including mink, beaver and rabbit.  The Santa Fe Collection offers soft acrylic animal prints, and the Bennington Collection offers sweater knit in a variety of colors and patterns.

HUGGRZ™ also has fun accessories including pom poms and crisscross suede lacing from $9 and up.  They are available online and at select retailers across the country as well as in Vienna, Austria.  HUGGRZ™ boot wraps are proudly made in the U.S.A. and all of the fur is 100% acrylic.

Huggrz Boot Wraps founder, Deb Miller, interviewed in My Handmade Addiction

Posted on: June 6th, 2011 by Hugrz

Earlier this year, Deanna, author of the blog, My Handmade Addiction, interviewed Deb Thelen Miller, inventor of the Huggrz Boot Wraps.  Deanna is devoted to buying handmade, organic and health conscious products whenever possible and when she stumbled upon Huggrz Boot Wraps in Olivers Trends, she had to find out more about the faux fur boot covers that are being exclusively made in Michigan. Below is an excerpt of the interview:

My Handmde Addiction (MHA): For those who aren’t familiar with Huggrz, please tell us what they are.

DM (Deb Miller): Huggerz Boot Wraps are a cover for your boots that make them look like a totally different pair of boots. They do not just look like something added to the leg of the boot.

MHA: If you had a tagline for Huggerz what would it be?

DM: Our tag line is “Wrap your boots to suit your moods.”

MHA: How and where did you come up with the idea for Huggerz?

DM: I was in a hockey rink and my feet were freezing. I was wearing boots and wool socks, but not the super warm shearling style boots. I knew then that I needed to invest in a pair, but when I started shopping, I could not decide what style to buy. I loved the ones with the fur. I loved the ones with the knit. I loved the patterned ones. But, I could not buy 3 or 4 different pairs, and I hated to spend all that money and be “stuck” with one look. That is when the idea hit me.

From BeesWhoBuzz.com

“This has GOT to be one of my most favorite products that I’ve had the chance of reviewing to date! [Huggrz boot wraps] are a brilliant idea created by Deb Miller, president and founder of DB Designs. Not wanting to spend a fortune on a variety of ugg/boot styles – she created Huggrz! Now you can choose whether you want to “hug your ugg” with faux fur, cool sweater wraps, or funky [fringe]! There are more than a dozen styles to choose from!

The Huggrz are super easy to slip on and fit right over shearling-style boots …. We had the wonderful opportunity to check out the Aspen style Rabbit and Fancy Striped Mink Huggrz (shown [left]) and the Bennington style in Fair Isle (also shown [left]). In addition to the super cute wraps, you can purchase additional accessories such as pom poms and tassels to give your [Huggrz] that extra special something. The Huggrz wraps look good on a variety of colors of boots including tan, camel, gray, and black. Mix and match to create a unique look and style entirely yours!”
