Are You Ready To Give Up Uggs?

11/09/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

One of the most loved-and-hated trends of the past few years has been the emergence of Uggs — originally popular with L.A. girls like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, the look spread like wildfire. To be honest, I fought the trend for as long as possible, only succumbing to their cuddly charm in the midst of a blizzard last winter. I know the pastel look, especially the bedazzled variety, have long worn out their welcome, but can’t I wear my tan ones when the temperatures drop? Do I need a new pair of boots to keep me warm this winter? What about you: Are you ready to give up your Uggs? If so, what are you replacing them with?Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

If Paris wants to wear Uggs, then let her! People act like it’s a crime because she’s still wearing them. If she likes to wear them, then leave her alone, and just shut up about it.

Dosen’t she know space boots are in??? With the billions she has, can’t she at least by 6,000 dollar ugg shoes…those blue ones look cheap!:-D

These Uggs are hideous! I have never liked Uggs–they look like Eskimo boots, and I know that guys hate them. Like Paris, some girls at my school still insist on wearing them; not only do they look out of sync with new looks, but their boots are dirty! Trash the Uggs–go for high, black boots with heels instead.

I am not getting rid of mine! They are the tan ones, and they keep my feet warm and they are super comfortable. I think people should just wear whatever they what, and forget what people say is in or out. What keeps your feet warm and comfortable is what is in!!

I am not giving up uggs! I don’t have them yet, but I want a pair of black ones! I don’t care if its out or if its in! They just look so comfy…. and according to what…. hmm… pretty much EVERYONE on this said, they probably are comfy! So I am getting them! And no super-trendy people are gonna stop me!

Andrea on

Uggs are OK for cold weather, but not as a fashion statement. There is a difference and someone needs to tell Paris that wearing a tanktop and Uggs do NOT go together.

lauren on

i luv her uggs i dont blame her for wearing them they are really comfy! But maybe wear them with a nice pair of jeans instead of red hot pants!

Ednora on

I hate them and I always have. what do people see on them? they’re sooo ugly. ewwwwwwwww

Like Stacy Clinton on WHAT NOT TO WEAR says “I hate that word…COMFORTABLE!” It’s like a get out of jail free card for crimes against fashion.
If you want to be comfortable in the snow it’s one thing, but wearing these hideous things just because??? In style of NOT, they’re BAD looking.

And why are so many people so adamant about keeping these?
So resistant to change. If they were cute, I’d say, don’t change em, but face it, they’re ugly boots.
If you’ve been wearing the same shoe for 10 or 20 years…that’s a major rut. Timberland boots are just as warm and waterproof and cuter in my opinion. My best friend bought a GORGEOUS pair that laces midcalf and has a little faux fur on top. SO CUTE! Be WARM AND FASHIONABLE! Tough love ladies! Look fabulous and sexy and you’ll feel better about yourselves. If you can’t part with them, I guess there are worse things in life, like….
