Trend Alert: Blu Moose Doona Boots




From the country that brought you Uggs comes the next must-have footwear craze: The Blu Moose doona boot! ("Doona" is Australian slang for quilt or blanket.) Based on a Swedish concept called the "dun sockar", Blu Moose slippers are like duvets for your feet. Who needs Louboutins when you can get cozy feather-and-down construction, adjustable ankle straps, and a quirky moose print?

Choose from either the wear-at-home down slipper, the slipper boot with a newly-introduced EVA sole you can wear outdoors, or a comfy suede-sole ballet slipper, ranging in price from $29.95 AUD (about $25 U.S.) for the ballet slipper to $49.95 (about $42 U.S. dollars) for the boots. And for a limited time, buy one pair and get the second pair half-off (plus overseas shipping; see site for details).

I'll stick to my Uggs for trudging through snow and ice but my tootsies wouldn't mind having a pair of Blu Moose slippers to keep them warm around the house. And the kiddie styles are undeniably cute. What do you think, are Blu Moose boots calling your name?
