‘Tis the season for good friends, good times, good egg nog and good shoes. The Ugg and nog have very similar characteristics. First of all the Ugg.
Unless you have been living in a hole, you already know that this is the most popular boot on the ‘winter’ market. Everywhere I go I see the Uggs. I have even seen them at the gym. Hey, I didn’t think you could do the stair-master in boots either, boy was I wrong. Nate, you were there.
This sturdy and stylish boot does it all. Socks or sans-socks, you can’t go wrong in these top of the sheepskin line-d boots. The Ugg boots offer ultra comfort, warmth, and functionality of a shorter height, these boots fit great under or over pants. Soft sheepskin suede upper with soft, comfortable natural shearling fleece lining. What is the last pair of shoes you could wear under or over? Right, moon boots. Think of these as your more comfortable and more expensive moon boots.
Wear them up or fold them down to expose the furry sheepskin lining.
Now the Nog:
Blend mildly, or hit liquefy for a few extra minutes and you get the same fluffy top as you see when you fold down the Ugg! Okay, really so what does egg nog have to do with feet? Well, for really sore feet, 10X the ingredients below and fill your jetted tub. Turn on the jets for the same frothy, whipped effect. Soak feet for 5-10 minutes. Don’t forget to bring a mug for the occasional sip — and keep your Uggs close by, they will never smell better. Um, soaking wet wool that smells like cinnamon and nutmeg. Next thing you know all of the top health spas will be doing this ‘nog-foot-bath’ — just remember you heard it first from the shoesoftheday.com
If you combine the two, you get a tasty holiday treat for your feet. The shoes of the day: Uggs. The drink of the month: Nog
For the Veggie/Vegan animal-lover type who are still upset about the animals who gave their wool that some folks might have warm feet, enjoy your Soy Nog:
1 quart soy milk
6 ounces Mori-Nu silken style tofu, extra firm (I Really don’t know what this is, but if you have it in the cupboard, this may be your one chance to use it.)
6 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Chill before serving. Makes 5 cups.
*No animals were used in the production of this email…other than the animals used for the shoes. But I had nothing to do with the manufacturing, I just write the shoe reviews and share incredible shoe recipes.
