Would You Wear Fluffy Uggs?

12/26/2006 at 01:30 PM ET

As trendy as they may seem, many of you refuse to give up your Uggs. In fact, eBay Marketplace Research has reported that in the past two weeks alone (December 5-December 18) 2,330 pairs of these love-to-hate boots have been sold on ebay.com causing a sale increase of 104.4% in only 14 days! But it’s not just about the classic shearling-lined Ugg anymore — there’s a new-generation style turning up on trendsetting feet. Mariah Carey (left) and Desperate Housewives Nicollette Sheridan have been sporting the brand’s Fluff Momma fuzzy boots recently. Mimi kept her toes cozy with a pink pair while hanging out in Aspen while the actress threw a neutral pair over some grey sweats while last-minute Christmas shopping in LA. What do you think of the Fluff Momma? Would you wear a pair?

they look like silly house slippers.

The Fluff Momma’s are a bit much, but I did, however, buy a pair of fluffy white boots from Bebe a few years ago that I LOVE and look surprisingly normal. However, there is a difference between a teenager having fun with her clothes and almost middle-aged celebrities looking sloppy.

Fluff is a little much, just reg UGGS would have been plenty.

They look like something my cat coughed up.

And, this is why I don’t shop based anything any celebrity wears.

Anyone who is still wearing Uggs, regular of fluffy needs to look down at their feet and realize that they make you look like big foot!
I don’t care how cold it is, blah blah, find a better LOOKING shoe that’s just as warm and don’t tell me “there aren’t any” because it’s just not true. YOU LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT wearing these things. Why would people want to intentionally look bad???? I’m sorry, but this is tough love, like Stacy says on What Not to Wear, find something else that’s comfortable and warm, or else continue to look stupid!! Women, c’mon! loose these shoes already!

I would never buy those… besides aren’t they made of rabbits?

I have a white pair, I LOVE them! They make your legs look thinner (avoid a long top), and they are soooo warm, not even a smidgen of cold air gets through. That’s enough for me. Toasty tootsies!

I wouldn’t wear themself. I think they great on Mariah Carey with jeans, but not with sweatpants like Nicollete Sheridan.

I agree that Mariah needs to dress her age. She’s a beautiful woman with a great body, she just needs to wear clothes that fit her and are flattering. And I agree with the comments posted about women’s attitudes. The main reason why there are so many women out there with eating disorders and poor body image has nothing to do with men (unless they are gay men in the fashion world) it has everything to do with women. We are horrible to each other. It’s a fact that the majority of women worry more about what other women think of them, then they worry about what men think. (Think about it and be honest, how many of you when you are getting dressed to go to a party think about showing up other women? Or once you get there, find yourself giving elevator eyes to all the other women and sizing up their clothing, hair, make-up, etc.?) Most men favor women more like Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks or Mariah Carey over Nicole Richie, Mischa Barton, etc. My husband is still crying over Lindsay Lohan’s weight loss. Men like curves, they like women to look fit yes, but they like women that aren’t afraid to throw down a cheeseburger with them without throwing it back up. Seriously, who wants to snuggle up to a skeleton?

As far as Uggs are concerned, these hairy monstrosities or the plain ones, have always been incredibly UGGly, and are very impractical, especially the pastel ones that get destroyed the first time they meet the ground. These make you look like you are wearing a Muppet! There are plenty of other boots out there that are ‘warm and comfy’ but don’t make you look like sasquatch. Also, ladies… the micro-mini plaid skirt with tights and Uggs look went out of style about six years ago, about five days after it started. Let it go.
