Pam Is Giving Up Her Uggs: Will You?

02/23/2007 at 05:15 PM ET

Last fall we asked your opinion on one of the most loved-and-hated trends of the past few years — Uggs Boots — originally popular with L.A. girls like Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Pamela Anderson — and you overwhelmingly said you still loved them. Now, longtime animal-rights supporter Anderson has announced that she is discarding the cozy footwear, saying on her website: “I am getting rid of them…. I used to wear them with my red swimsuit to keep warm — never realizing they were SKIN!” Since this winter is not quite over yet, we want to know: Are you still not ready to give up your Uggs? If you are, what are you replacing them with?

She’s an idiot and apparently she can’t read because it says it right on the tag (and on the box I believe).
I could never give up my Uggs in a million years.

Kristen Y on

If she’s giving them up, for her own positive beliefs,
then my dear Kristen, who are you to call her an idiot?
We share the same name so don’t make, me look bad. If someone wants to make positive changes in their life, leave them alone. Don’t hate please.

There are so many other worthy causes Miz Anderson could support, that involve human beings. This is her big issue of the moment? Hopefully, women around the world are capable of
making their own informed decisions and don’t have to worry
about what Miz Anderson is doing. Women worldwide are being
abused, children are starving…but she is totally concerned
about sheep and her boots. Whatever…I don’t think we as women are going to run out and get implants, make porno videos,get tattoos, in the interest of following her lead.

I think she’s a hypocrite. You can’t tell me she didn’t know they were animal skin. Not for this long. Are her implants cruelty free, by the way?

What she does is her business and more power to her. I have to wonder about her naiveté about not knowing what Uggs were made of – and not asking earlier. Pam has no impact on my world other than to get a comment on this topic. I am mostly a vegetarian but I will continue to wear and carry leather, and shearling boots ,to include Uggs are part of that. Each to their own…

THE SHEEP DIES FOR THE UGG BOOTS, PEOPLE!! They are the equivalent of wearing a fur coat! Wear Sugar Boots instead!

Haley on

No way will I give up my Ugg’s… they’re too comfy.

WhoFNCares on

Oh sure, she didn’t know until now, MY *SS! Whatever. She’s such a hypocrit! Someone probably called her on it so now she’s acting shocked when even UGGS said this isn’t the first time she’s spoken out against them…but she kept wearing them.
What’s next? I bet if her implants were made of animal byproducts she sure would NOT shed those.

I love my uggs and paid way too much money to throw them out, so hells no.

BUT…SNUGGS makes a very comparible paif of snuggly boots just the same and half the price.

They actually hold up longer than Uggs. I got my uggs cuzz of a broken foot and it’s all I could wear as the snuggs are a bit more durable and I needed something softer on my foot so nah, I’m keeping mine.
