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.

Michael Kors says shearling boots and bare legs too Jersey Shore

Posted on: December 2nd, 2011 by Hugrz

We love our furry boots here at Huggrz, but can you really wear them to the beach? Michael Kors just posted his Dos and Don’ts of Winter Styles for Glamour Magazine and he says furry boots with short tight dresses is way too Jersey Shore.  We agree with him when it comes to the picture of Snookie posted below.

However, we don’t agree with Michael Kors’ ski lodge-only assessment. We think it’s all in the execution. With Huggrz faux fur boot covers, your woolly-look boots are going to attract a lot of attention.  So you need to keep the rest of the outfit subtle. Or at least coordinated with the boots like this gal from Lookbook.nu whose ruffled shorts perfectly set off her sherpa boots.

So what do you think? Boots and bare legs? Yea or Nay?

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.
