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?

Uggs *ARE* ugly. I don’t have a problem with wearing sheepskin (though if replacements are the same, then I’d go for the replacements. But if the sheepskin is definitely superior, I’m okay with that), but they are just soooooo ugly that I would never wear them. And I don’t like Pam.

I Love my Uggs….they are soooo comfortable! Hope they never become out of style.

I find it odd that she didn’t know they were made of sheepskin for so long. I wanted a pair of UGGS awhile back and did research on them to see how much they were on the Internet. Regardless, at the time, they were highly popular and they were exspensive, way too high for my price range. It says right there on the description that they were made from sheepskin. She probably didn’t know they were made from sheepskin if she shopped in the store for them. Regardless, if it took her this long until she realized that, I would call that plain dunce. Anyways, I have knockoffs to UGGS in different colors. You really can’t tell they’re knockoffs. I really don’t care neither.

Sorry, but as much as I love animals, I love my Uggs. I didnt’ pay freakin’ 285$ to throw them away.

She knew they were sheepskin, the dumbass. Who is she trying to convince? Im surprised PETA didn’t bug her about it before.

Lots of people don’t think about what they wear or eat or where it came from. Pam and Peta are just trying to do the right thing and get the word out…maybe just to tell us to THINK once in a while. As for the Uggs, I really love mine. I love them so much I thought of buying 10 pair just in case they stop making them. (BTW, AustralianUggsDownUnder.com is the better company) On the other hand, I would prefer to use a “fake” brand and I hope they would be just as cozy. Where can I get them?

alrighty; WAY TO GO PAM !!!!!

Let me just say: ah hah hah, moron.

Someone who doesn’t realize than those are made of animal skin is hardly someone I’d take any advice, fashion or otherwise, from; not that having dead animal on my feet bothers me, considering I own several pairs of far more attractive leather boots.

Pam is an such a fake just like her breast how could u not know that they are sheepskin its on the label and the website that is such bull
what is she going to do about the fact that her breast are tested on animals
she is so fake now she has boots like them thats why she is giving them up she doesnt care for the animals rights it all about her

I used to think they were cute. I bought it few year ago, wore it for a year then realized all the cruelty involved in making these boots. These sheeps are starved, beaten, abused for the sake of fashion and comfort????Ever since being knowledgeable about this industry, it has been in my closet unworn. It’s disgusting to look at, I don’t even want to touch it. The idea of dead animal slaughtered for fashion is wrong and on my body is even more disgusting! They will be in the trash very soon. My cruelty-free sneakers are alot more comfortable! I am a big time fashion freak, but UGGs and FUR are just too inhumane! I say no to uggs & fur! Any suggestions in winter boots that looks cute, cruelty-free?

brittneyy on

no, i will never give up my uggs. i dont care if people say they are ugly. i love them. and sheep hair does grow back and i have one pair. its not like they are killing the sheep to make uggs. and do you know how many things they shave sheepskin off for? do some research.
