The Uggs of Alaska
It’s not uncommon to spot a pair of XtraTufs on the feet of local Alaskans. You might have never heard of this brand before, and we don’t blame you. Apparently, it’s a top-seller in Alaska and remains relatively unknown everywhere else. Consider them the Uggs of Alaska, if you will.
The popularity of XtraTufs is due to the warmth they offer and their durability to snow. The soles also offer traction to keep you upright while standing on slippery ice. XtraTufs have recently become more popular among fishermen and dock workers, which isn’t a surprise seeing as how well they hold up to extreme conditions.
