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 the best boot ever! but now that i know that their real sheep skin i won’t wear them…they need to think of something other than sheep!

Give me a break! After wearing them all these years, she finally read the writing on the box? What no one at PETA or her friends ever told her ? I always thought she was a bit of a hypocrite about PETA thing, but I guess she was just dumb !

As was asked, can’t she read? If she is so concerned about animal rights why doesn’t she look at the label before she purchases? Ignorance doesn’t cut it.

The issue, to me, is animal cruelty and not the use of animal biproducts. Humans are omnivores and the most respectful action to take is to fight animal cruelty and use all parts of the animal just like the first inhabitants of the Americas did.

Go Pam GO!!! No one needs to wear dead animals…… especially on such an ugggggllllly boot!!

I always took her for a dumb blond, then I heard her speak and realized she wasn’t. This, however, makes me revisit my earlier opinion of her, you’ve got to be pretty dumb to not know what Uggs are made of.

I think that Pamela has made a very important step in becoming an effective animal rights activist – learning that leather comes from animals. Was she too busy to do some basic research. What an idiot. Maybe in the cartoon land that is her mind everything that blatantly appears to be leather is actually synthetic.

i am from ny and ugg boots are not about fashion, they are about function– when its cold, nothing keeps ur feet as warm as uggs… as for pam, she is throwing out the poor sheep’s “skin”– which means that he lost his skin just so she could chuck it!! that sounds more insensitive to me!!

Erin on

GIVE ME A BREAK! What did she think the boots were made from?

Mary on

omg, “Uggs” and “sexy” do not belong together in the same sentence. I think they are hideous!

Pam is being more insensitive by throwing out her Uggs? That’s a weak justification of Uggs if I’ve ever heard one. While I think one has to be pretty dumb to not realize that Uggs are made of at least some sort of animal hide, I applaud her for speaking out against them.
