6 reasons to buy

  • Lightweight: UGG Highland Hi Heritage's bottom layer is primarily made up of foam, making it almost weightless but sturdy. 
  • Comfy: It offers support where it’s needed. It's a terrific choice for long-term use.
  • Cushioned interior: Its padded collar and tongue feel soft, putting any signs of blisters at bay.
  • Fashionable: UGG fans love that this puts a stylish spin on their jeans and leggings.
  • Secure footing: The rear side neatly grabs the ankle and heel.
  • Snug: It’s one of the sneakerboots that’s ideal for colder days as it keeps the feet warm.

2 reasons not to buy

  • Fur-less: UGG boots fans would have appreciated it more had it been lined with fuzzy shearling fur.
  • Limited colorway: Sneaker enthusiasts wished UGG came up with more shades for this style like it did with the Cali Sneaker High.

Bottom line

Winter-designed Highland Hi Heritage keeps up UGG's reputation as a sneaker label of choice for cold and freezing months. Though comfort, support, and stability make up its core, this sneakerboot is styled to leave a posh and chic finish to streetwear clothes, minus all the glitter.

UGG Highland Hi Heritage: A chic, hiking-oriented sneaker

UGG’s colorful past circles around creating clogs, sheepskin cleats, and sandals. Not too long later, it became a household name for casual sneakerboots with runway-fitting glamor and style. These elements aren’t missed out from the Highland Hi Heritage, a sneaker that offers an outdoorsy vibe with snappy touches and bright accents.

What it offers

  • Its Treadlite base is built with a durable foam compound mixed with elastic rubber. It grants a longer springy ride than traditional foams.
  • This shoe is lined with soft and amply padded textile, which instantly offers a cozy environment for the feet.
  • It loads up on cushioning underfoot, which instantly offers comfort. It’s ready for long walks.
  • The extra chunk on the sole, similar to UGG Olli, offers a boost in height while keeping the entire shoe light. 
  • This sneaker may not be generously insulated like the fur boots by UGG, but it can keep the foot warm in colder months. It can make the foot toasty during summer.
