You Say Uggs, I Say Fabulous!


uggsI've heard I walk like a drunk duck when I wear heels. I guess it's because I wobble around bow-legged (and eat crumbs off the grass, nip at kids and stick my head in ponds but don't worry about that.) Heels and I do not mix, so I've had to stick to what I know: Flats. I've got about 25 pair of them and of course each set is totally different. There are sparkly ones, professional ones, fancy ones, casual ones, and the Uggs. "Ugh," you say, "Uggs are so fug!" Agree to disagree.

If you want to pick a fight with me on this one, careful, I've got about a billion Chinese women willing to back me up.

Women's Wear Daily went to Beijing and snapped some street style photos of all the fashionistas they encountered in Sanlitun Village and Shin Kong Place. And as Refinery 29 pointed out, six out of the eight women photographed were wearing Uggs. Yup! The Ugg trend has gone global.

This could not make me happier. The more women who wear Uggs the better. My perfect world would be one wear we exclusively wear Uggs, but I'll take acceptance of this sheepskin shoe first. Acceptance? Yes, acceptance. I feel like a lot of men and women out there judge the Ugg, reject the Ugg, deny the Ugg. It's time for all that nonsense to stop.

Ladies: If your feet are tired and your dogs are barking after just a few steps in those high heels, ditch them. Why put yourself (and us who have to hear about it) through that pain? Join the Ugg movement.

Gentleman: If your feet are tired and your dogs are barking after just a few steps in those high heels, ditch them. (That was for a select few of you.) If you're tired of having to take cabs everywhere because your lady can't walk a few blocks, if you're sick of rubbing your lady's feet at night, if you can find a woman sexy in just about anything, join the Ugg movement.

There are tons of styles and options of Uggs to choose from ... join the movement today!

Are you with me? Or do you want me to Ugg off.

I would like to add...I own a pair of particularly adorable Uggs and I love them.  But there are RULES LADIES! DO NOT WEAR THEM WITH YOUR DENIM MINI SKIRT OR ANY MINI SKIRT FOR THAT MATTER AND AN ITSY BITSY TANK TOP.  ALSO DO NOT WEAR THEM WITH YOUR SHORT SHORTS AND YOUR ITSY BITSY TANK TOP. Its stupid, and news flash: Every guy I have ever spoken to finds that to be the DUMBEST and least sexy look.  Time and time again I have seen a guy just shake his head in disbelief that a woman would go out in public like that and wonder out loud if you looked at yourself in a mirror before joining us out here in public.  So yes, I love my Uggs, and Uggs in general, but I abide by the rules.

I love Ugg style boots, but I'm not spending 200$ on them. I'm happy with my (still sheepskin shearling and comfortable) Bjorndals! 


I'm with ya.

I love love shoes and boots and heels. But I do not like uggs. Not at all. I think they are fugly and ugly and do nothing for the feet.


They do a LOT for the feet billsfan. They keep them warm. I live in Minnesota.

I am a shoe fanatic. I love heels, flats, boots and sandals but I would never ever wear uggs. Ever. My husband feels even more passionately than I do about them than I do. He would burn them if I ever (jokingly) bought a pair.

Jafe I live in buffalo, so I understand about the keeping warm part, but they don't look pretty. Lol

I like the Kaitie and the Laylana styles, but there is no way I'd pay that much. I have 2 pairs of sandals/flats in similar styles and didn't pay half the price of either.  They work and feel just fine.

And the model in the cover for the Uggs page? With the long sleeved sweater, bikini bottoms and full length uggs?  She looks ridiculous.  If it's cold enough for a sweater and uggs, it's TOO cold to wear a swimsuit. Stupid look.
