If you’re looking to add a cozy pair of shoes to your fall wardrobe, Ugg has got you covered. In addition to their classic boot styles, the brand offers an array of trendy mini-shoes, such as the Tasman slipper. If you’ve been eyeing these shoes, make sure to read our full Ugg Tasman slippers review before purchasing!
Last year we saw the comeback of a famous classic: the Ugg boot, albeit in a different form. Instead of the classic tall boot, Ugg’s best-selling items have been the brand’s mini-shoes, i.e. the Ultra Mini Boot, as well as a new addition to the brand’s catalog: the Tasman Slipper.
Ever since last fall, the Tasman slipper has been the go-to cozy shoe for many influencers and celebrities alike, from style icon and model Elsa Hosk to the Hadid sisters, to Keke Palmer, and many more. Both Elsa Hosk and Bella Hadid were spotted wearing the slipper-like Uggs styled in very casual, lounge-wear-like outfits, which kickstarted the era of house shoes becoming a fashion status symbol.
Fast-forward to fall/winter 2023, the outdoor slipper continues to be one of the biggest shoe trends for both indoor and outdoor dressing. And at the front line, is of course the Tasman slipper.
As a proud owner of this crazed slipper myself, I embarked upon extensive research into the sizing, colorways, styling ideas, as well as my personal experience from over a year of regular use, to give you a better idea if this cozy shoe would be a good fit in your own wardrobe. I opted for the classic chestnut brown color, and the standard sole instead of the platform because, as you may know, the Tazz platform slipper is nearly impossible to find in stock!
Honest UGG Tasman Slippers Review
Sizing & Fit
First off, let’s get into sizing. If you have purchased Uggs in the past, you may know that they can be a bit snug at first but then they tend to stretch out. For this reason, I recommend sizing up from your usual size. I am usually a size US 6 in most shoes, but went for a size US 7 for my Tasman slippers.
Not only will your shoes be comfortable to wear immediately, but you can also wear thick cashmere socks for added warmth during the colder months. If you live in a colder climate, this is a really useful thing to keep in mind.
However, if you like your shoes snug, live in a warmer climate, or plan on using your slippers indoors only, purchase your normal size.
Are They Comfortable?
The fit of the Tasman slipper is SO comfortable. They are not your usual slide-on slippers as they have a slight backing. This in my opinion makes them extremely comfortable and feel a bit more like a shoe than a slipper. This also means they do not slide off!
Quality and materials
Ugg’s mission is to provide products that are made to last, and with the cult-like following that the brand has, it’s no surprise that they use the best materials on the market. The Tasman slipper is made from high-grade responsible sheepskin with upcycled wool, providing a comfortable, and high-quality shoe.
I can confirm that after a year of wearing these slippers, the quality is in fact great. They also hold their shape and structure very well. However, as the material is sheepskin, I would advise against wearing them in wet weather as it ruins the shoe, and they can start to look worn.
Another thing to consider is that if you choose to buy the Tasman in a light color like the classic Chestnut, the wear-and-tear is a lot more noticeable than if you choose a darker color.
If you are worried about this problem, I recommend buying the Ugg protector spray for $15. Ugg provides this spray as a way an option to keep your Uggs looking fresh and new through the seasons, which just adds to their mission of crafting a product that’s made to last.
Once you have chosen your preferred size, you have eight color options to choose from. I love this about Ugg – they release their classic styles in a variety of colors to suit any skin tone or style.
With this said, I went for the classic Chestnut color, as it goes with everything in my [mostly] neutral wardrobe. Also, I just love the classic feel of the original Ugg Chestnut color.
However, if you’re feeling more adventurous, make sure to check out the Ugg website for all the current colors of the Tasman and Taz slippers. At the moment, the original Tasman slipper comes in neutral colors like chestnut, sand, dark grey, black, dark brown, and olive, as well as more fun colors like hot pink and lilac.
On the other hand, while the platform version of the slipper only comes in neutral colors this season, it’s also available in a very cute shearling version.
More Tasman Slipper Colors That We Love
When it comes to the slippers’ price, I must say I think these shoes are 100% worth it. I have had mine for a year and couldn’t be happier. They are so versatile and easy to combine, plus they’re extremely comfortable.
The price is, in my opinion, pretty reasonable at $110. After all, the material is genuine shearling, which you can definitely feel.
However, if you are deciding if the shoe is worth the price for yourself, it depends on how much you are willing to “splurge”. If you are looking to only wear the Tasman slippers at home, then I would consider them a pricey home shoe! All in all, if you are committed to wearing them as outdoor shoes, then they are worth it.
Uggs have gained a lot of momentum in the past year – we have seen them trending on TikTok and styled by many influencers on Instagram. This has definitely had an effect on their availability, and most of the time the Tasman slipper is out of stock.
The good news is the Tasman slipper on the Ugg official website is currently on backorder and if you join the waitlist, their estimated shipping date is between 9/12/2023 and 9/27/2023!
However, the Ugg official website is not the only place where you can pick up a pair of these slippers. The Tasman slippers are available through retailers such as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Revolve, which means there’s more than one place to check out if your size is currently out of stock on your preferred retailer’s website.
When it comes to styling this comfortable and chic slipper, keeping it classic and everyday-friendly is the way to go. This is definitely a more casual shoe, so I do not recommend wearing them to the office. However, they are a great pair to style for a chic weekend city look or a chilled fall date night.
For example, you can wear them with a casual outfit such as a white t-shirt, oversized blazer, and a pair of light-washed jeans for a fun look that mixes business casual with cozy elements. Fall is a great time to style neutral tones such as white, cream, and beige, and these slippers definitely suit a cream-colored outfit.
Would I Buy The Tasman Slipper Again?
After a year of owning the Tasman slippers, I can honestly say they are a great shoe to add to your collection and they are 100% worth it. They are so chic and versatile and also a great warm option for the colder months. I personally love the detailing on the top of the shoe, which adds a bit of fun to this classic style. They can easily be styled and combined with different outfits.
Not only has Ugg managed to create a trendy slipper but also a long-lasting, high-quality product. As I’ve already mentioned in this Tasman slippers review, the quality is incredible and sure to last you many years, as you may have experienced with the classic Ugg boot.
If you keep thinking about the Tasman slippers, this is your sign to buy them before they run out of stock again! If you are budget-conscious, you can of course simply add a pair to your Christmas wishlist, too.
All in all, the Tasman slippers are a timeless piece and we will definitely see them making a return to the streets this fall/winter 2023.
