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

They are the ugliest things I’ve seen and I can’t believe that people actually wear them in public. MAYBE for slippers or wear inside the house but that’s about it! Trust me, where I live (Montreal) is very fashionable and here Uggs are SO last winer.

First off I don’t wear them b/c they are in style. I have worn them for over 10 years and it had nothing to do with trend or Paris (Hilton that is). If you are a surfer or know a surfer chances are they have Uggs. So for me it’s a surfing thing b/c they are great to keep your feet warm after being in the cold surf. So for me I will never be w/o my Uggs.

Uggs are so passe. To everyone wearing them for comfort – Wear them around the house. To everyone wearing them for style – there’s boots that are comfy AND in style… I picked up a pair of Dior moonboots last winter, theyre super comfy, super warm, and totally current even this year.

Never, they are the most comfortable winter boot on the planet. I am a landscape contractor and can work an entire 12+ hr day, of heavy duty work, rain or shine and never have a foot complaint. My hands may like hell but my pedicure is always beautiful. I must own a least a dozen pair ranging from old,leather and waterproof to tall, soft and sexy. Uggs are a friend forever!

When I was in Australia a few years back, I learned that Aussies laugh so hard at the “cool, fashionable, trendy” famous people wearing UGGS everywhere. They told me that UGGS (as they are imported to the USA from Australia)is short for “ugly boots” and ONLY hillbilly sheepfarmers I Australia wear them! No smart trendy person would get caught wearing them Down Under! So much for cool famous people in USA! hahahah…

Give up my Uggs?? NEVER! I am a home care nurse outside of NYC and own 4 pairs that I rotate around to suit the weather. (tall,short,gripped bottoms) They are an absolute necessity if you live where there is frequent snow, ice, slush, freezing temps, heavy rain, sometimes all in the same day. You would have to pry them off of my dead warm feet! Besides, my feet are in the best shape ever! No more bunions, corns, foot pain….they are heaven! GOD BLESS UGGS

Uggs are not a fashion trend, they are a way of life. If you’re super concerned with the latest in boots, and let’s face it , “who’s Not?”… well go buy another pair of boots, or two. But some days are just “ugg” days.

I like Uggs! I won’t stop wearing them! I think Paris should be on top of fashion, isn’t that why she’s famous? But for me, I like Uggs!
