UGG Royale Graphic Metallic Review
UGG’s have been bringing customers great quality footwear since their start in Southern California in 1978. Australian surfer Brian Smith along with Doug Jensen started the company and took inspiration from Smith’s Aussie roots and his love for sheepskin to introduce the world to their classic UGG boots which quickly became a huge success. The brand is not limited to just their boots anymore and they have expanded into making all kinds of footwear, handbags, clothing, accessories, home products, blankets, and so much more. The UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals are just one more great product in their long line of amazing shoes.
These sandals have a very interesting look to them that most customers adore. The metallic looking uppers have a nice shine to them that stands out in a crowd. They are extremely comfortable and great for those who are going to be on their feet all day. The Treadlite by UGG outsole offers fantastic durability, flexibility, comfort, and traction. These lightweight sandals will not hold you back or weigh you down at all, keeping your feet cozy and happy all day long. Keep in mind when ordering that they sizes are running a bit small so you might want to choose your size accordingly. Overall, however, these are a great pair of sandals that customers love.

The main component in the sole is rubber which is strong and durable, you will not have to worry too much about these falling apart on you any time soon. Additionally, the rubber sole is going to ensure that you get a decent amount of traction while you are out and about. As these are a pair of casual sandals you should not be venturing out too far off the beaten path with these, but as long as you are sticking to relatively flat and more non-abrasive surfaces then you should have no problem keeping their grip. Whether you are stepping on dry land or you hit a wet patch, the outsole of these shoes should be able to hold quite the grip to help keep you on your feet.
The Treadlite sole also gives you a great deal of elasticity allowing for amazing flexibility, as mentioned above, but also gives you a decent amount of underfoot cushioning and responsive ride for a little spring in your step. Overall, customers love the soles of these sandals and everything they have to offer.
They have three color options that you can choose from when purchasing the sandals. You can get all black, a white sole with a gold vamp, or a white sole with a silver vamp. The uppers of the shoes, no matter what color you decide to go with, has the UGG logo debossed on it.
Customers have mentioned that these shoes look great with most of their wardrobe. Whether pairing them with some blue jeans or a nice summer skirt they will fit right in. They are casual shoes and as such should stay out of the office and might not fit in at a fancy dinner, but heading to the pool, running errands, or simply hanging out with friends are perfect occasions for these great looking shoes.
On a negative note, the uppers do not allow for very good ventilation. It should not be too much of a problem because most of your foot is exposed, to begin with, and can get a decent amount of air, but the part of your foot that is covered by the sheepskin is going to get warm and sometimes uncomfortably so. It is easy enough to slip your feet out of the sandal to get some air to them, but some people might not be in a position where that is a possibility. This is just something to keep in mind when making your purchase.
These sandals weigh in, on average, at a mere 4 ounces which are on the low end of the spectrum when compared to some other similar products on the market these days. Please note that this weight is based on a size 8 medium and is only for one shoe, not the pair.
For the most part, customers are saying that the UGG Royale Graphic Metallic sandals are running just a little bit too small and they would recommend going up a size to ensure that you get the correct fit the first time you order them so you do not have to deal with the hassle of having to return them and reordering a better size. If you do not know what size you should order then it recommended that you take a quick peek at a sizing chart just to make sure.
You will get a decent amount of support while wearing these shoes. It might not seem like it because they only have one strap across your foot, but as long as you get the correct fit you will not have to worry too much about your feet slipping and sliding around which could potentially cause you to fall and hurt yourself or someone else. You will get as much of a locked-in feel as you can in this type of sandal.
As for arch support, you will get a decent amount thanks to the contoured footbed. The shoe is designed to cradle your foot and give you the support you need where you need it the most. Customers seem to agree that they feel great under their arches.
