Ugg boots are getting a new life thanks to the latest TikTok trend.

Teens and young adults have been cutting up their old boots and turning them into slippers, according to several videos that have gone viral on the app.

In October, TikToker Abby J shared a video of herself snipping excess material from a used pair of Ugg boots.

"These babies are all kinds of jacked up, they’re 7 years old. But instead of throwing them out I’m going to cut them up and see if I can reuse them," she explained in her instructional video, which shows her carefully cutting along the seams so it looks more like a loafer.

Several other videos can be seen when typing in "Ugg boot slippers" into the TikTok search bar. Likewise, the hashtag #UggSlippers has more than 7.7 million views while #UggBoots has 5.7 million views.

Long before the do-it-yourself Ugg slipper trend made its way to TikTok, YouTubers and Pinterest users had shared tutorials on how to transform Ugg boots into something new. These creative posts don’t appear to have the same pull TikTok has, which is said to have more than 100 million active users in the U.S.
