Uggs, despite their name, I think those Australian boots are so cute. I love Baby Uggs for my daughter. It’s really nice to know she will keep warm and cozy in them since she has trouble discussing her foot comfort (being so young.) Today we’re going to draw a pair of classic brown Uggs. They look complicated but it’s really just one ugg mirrored next to each other. Don’t worry, we’re going to do a step-by-step guide to draw out this pair of shoes.
This tutorial and our many others are suitable for ages 3 to 8 (preschool and above.)

✏️ TOOLS FOR SUCCESS
- How-To-Draw Template – International (A4) or U.S. Size (8.5×11 in)
- Sketching Pencil
- Polymer Eraser
- Outline Marker
- Coloring Tools
🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.
Step-by-Step Guide on How to Draw Boots
- Draw a “sock-like” shape with an oval opening on top then, draw a curved line tracing the forefoot’s bottom.
- This “sock-like” shape is the boot’s left side, so make sure it’s facing to your left.
- Add details inside by drawing a horizontally curved line from the top forefoot’s corner to the bottom forefoot. That will become the sole of the shoe which protects and buffers you from the ground.
- Next, connect a vertical line to the curve’s corner going upwards to the boot opening. Shoes, especially boots, all have stitching you can see. And often it’s part of the design, like these boots, it gives you a sense of definition and shape.
- Before you know it, you have completed a left boot, all we need to have the other pair. Repeat steps 1 to 4, but this time, the right boot must face the left boot’s opposite side to create a mirror drawing of the left boot.
- Our pair of boots is almost ready! Let’s color it with the classic light brown color, or whatever your favorite color is for your boot!
Printing & Saving Info:
- The instant print button is in the upper left-hand corner. If you don’t see the instant print icon on mobile, toggle your mobile browser to “Desktop View” and you should be able to see it. Turning on “Desktop View” is on the upper right of your browser screen under “Settings.”
- To decrease load time we put large images on different sub-pages. Use the navigation on the top and bottom of the galleries to toggle.
- Fits both A4 sizes and fits US standard letter sizes but preview your specs just in case.
- Want to save a file for later? Just hit the print button and choose instead of printing, select Save As “PDF” in the drop-down selection, and done! (Your screen and selection might look a little different.)
