However, UGGs are less known for its durability and it lacks the adequate protective properties which are required for industrial purposes. This means that UGGs boots are not meant for industrial working conditions.

Do UGGs Ruin Your Feet?

UGGs being one of your favourite winter footwear that provides you comfort and coziness for your feet can result in ruining your foot. There are mainly two reasons why UGGs can be problematic, sweating and lack of arch support. 

UGGs are super cozy with perfect warm lining. People, on the other hand, wear UGGs outside when it is chilly, but their feet sweat when they enter a well-heated building. This could then lead to foot fungi. 

UGGs are too flat, it is due to this very reason they have no arch support. Both children and adults suffer from extreme foot pain and plantar fasciitis as a result of this UGGs condition. 

Are UGGs Good For Heel Pain?

No, if you have heel pain, I strongly advise you not to wear UGGs. Even though they are recognized for their warmth, wearing UGGs while suffering from heel pain would only worsen the situation due to the absence of arch support. 

Most of your footwears have good structural support like arch and heel support, perfect breathability and also insole cushioning, however UGGs doesn’t have any of these features except for the fact that they have sheep lined cushions and are flat structured. 

Their lack of structural support will not only aggravate your heel pain, but will also cause foot, ankle, knee, and hip pains as a result of leg and muscle alignment and gait change issues.
