The ultimate in winter warmer for your feet and soul. If you haven’t got a Whooga Ugg Boot yet then you are missing out on the sure fire way to beat the winter blues and look good doing it fitted with streetwise fashion footwear. Although some are gifted with natural style and a wonderful eclectic fashion sense most have to work at it and not everyone knows how to look good in Uggs. So what style should you get?
Whooga style buy guide:
“Broadly speaking there are 3 classic styles which are popular every season and a number of limit run styles introduced most seasons. If properly cared for ugg boots will last many seasons and so unless you’re buying a second or third pair it is best to stick with a pair from the classic range. The classic range is also the most versatile of all styles and can be coordinated with many outfits. The limited run styles while often very appealing are usually difficult to coordinate with many outfits.
Of the classic range you need to consider a couple of factors. First and foremost is fit, if your calves are on the larger side (15 inch and up) you will be more comfortable in a pair of classic short boots. Take a look at our ugg boots sizing guide for a little more on this. The second factor is body shape. The thick leathers used in ugg boots make for something which is cute but also clunky. Longer legs can get away with tall boots, shorter legs appear shorter. If you want to appear taller and more slender then classic short or mini are the best options. The final factor is the type of pants you intend to wear with your boots. For more tips visit Whooga website to continue reading…
We have all seen them, “Do I look good naked, Extreme Makeover, Trinny and Susannah” and many more very entertaining but arguably irrelevant to the plight of the average woman waking up in the morning and thinking how much time do I have to get dressed and ready before the children are up? This would be immediately followed by the myriad of jobs that have to be done whilst desperately trying to style a look to equal a 20 something that has just walked onto the set of a photo shoot in Milan at sunrise.
Can it really be done? The short answer is YES with a personal stylist, hairdresser and a decent bank balance. That is out of the question for most however the good news is that it doesn’t have to be that hard.
The starting point is a basic understanding of body shape or to be more precise your own. Then move onto colours that best suit your complexion and only then will you be ready to start finding styles that best shape you. I know what you are thinking “that is easy for you to say.

Hardcloud is UK’s answer to online surf /skate and music inspired fashion. The brand is a true reflection and belief of the people involved. That means Ian, Roger and the rest of the ever expanding team!
“Surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, bmxing, mountain biking, moto-x, drinking, listening to music, lifestyle and action sports…we all do at least three of these things each, and that is what Hardcloud is about.
We wear what we sell.
As surfers and all the rest of it the things that influence us in everyday life are pretty simple, listening to a new track for the first time, surfing at our local break (Wittering rocks!), going out with our mates. These are the things that help us decide what kind of clothes to offer”. Quote Roger.
Anyway here’s the dream team…
Ian Madden (Big E)
12 years experience in surf/skate/snow retail. Founder of the first proper action sports website…got bored. Surfs (badly), wakeboards (less badly) used to skate Southsea in the days of the Abrooks, likes holidays to hot places. In summary – athletic (skinny), nose 80% of total body weight, funny (yeah right)
Roger Moon (Scrawn)
10 years abusing computers, 5 years in the surf/skate trade. Founded the first proper action sports website with Ian a few years ago, now seeks new challenge! Surfs too much (poo stance), hates snow! Well known for wearing elasticated waist cargo pants well into his twenties but thankfully now cured. In summary – funny, has upgraded to a house with stairs, is worried about hair loss.
Clive Milverton (Lofty)
Likes going naked fishing with his brother, surfing, mountain biking, motorbikes and birds (feathered variety). Hard working and conscientious he is a solid fixture in the team. In summary – doesn’t like dwarf jokes, strong, short legs.
Jonny Day (The Airedale)
7 years experience in the watersports industry also loves kitesurfing and surfing. Has tried London life but has returned to his passion of the action sports industry and the coast. Has also spent a good few years abusing computers and works on our online marketing as well as a bit of everything else we can throw at him! In summary – fields different facial hair weekly, likes a laugh, loves holidays.
Tony Gainsbrough (Big T)
After running his own radio station for 4 and half years, our very own resident music man DJ Tony SlackShot joined the ever growing cloud. Likes music a lot and his brain is better than any Wikipedia discography, likes kayaking and the sea, hates being cold and always wears a jacket in doors! In summary – never makes tea, loves food and enjoys the quiet life in his castle.
Duran Searle (Duranoff, D-Ran, Duuran)
Trained in England and refined in Australia, our travelling graphics genius is also head of the graphics team. Likes to see Friday 5.30pm and an evening out with the boys planning there next adventure, occasionally has meetings with hard inanimate objects. Super hardworking and always delivers on time. In summary – bit of a joker, has plenty of stories and wants to be a surfer really.
Chris Moore (Jedward)
Chris is a longstanding member of the team and we are glad to have him on board. The full time graphics maestro and computer nerd knows what needs to be done. We have learnt that this one is a sarcastic genius and waits until you least expect it to drop in some comedy gold. In summary – Doesn’t like wearing shorts, enjoys kick dancing
Dave Robertson (Big Dave)
Dave is the newest member at the cloud working under the watchful eye of Duran/Chris as our graphics junior. Loves kitesurfing (he’s good), his car and also enjoys an evening on the Xbox with wittering crew. In summary – Likes biscuits, will be surfing by the time we have finished with him!
