Ugg Celebrates Women With Scrunchita Slide Nonprofit Donations – Footwear News

Ugg is continuing International Women’s Day celebrations this month — coining March as “International Women’s Month” — for a cause.

The comfort-focused shoe brand shared a new post on Instagram today, announcing its latest charitable initiative. Until March 31, the brand will be donating $20 in sales from each pair of its $120 Scunchita slides in the shoe’s vibrant green “Pale Chartreuse” colorway. The aforementioned donations will be given to Kiva — an international nonprofit organization that provides small loans to various entrepreneurs.

The Scrunchita is one of the latest styles in Ugg’s expanding slide repertoire, featuring an EVA foam midsole and outsole topped with a soft sheepskin lining. The style is topped with whimsically wide scrunched and puffed straps crafted from 50% recycled polyester, complete with Ugg-printed graphic elastic straps for a secure finish.
