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?

Um, how could Pam NOT know that Uggs were made out of sheepskin? DUH. I don’t care how many times Uggs are announced as being “out” or “ugly”. I love mine and will never give them up!

You guys dont have to give uop the ones youve already bought through ignorance, just dont buy anymore and urge your freinds to do the same!!!!

Oh please she has been wearing uggs for years and didn’t realize they were made from skin, WTF. Give me a break, she is not that dumb.

Is she an idiot? Why would anyone think they were not real leather? I would think such a hardcore PETA pusher would be more aware of issues like that.

I replaced all my leather et al with cheap alternative. http://www.alternativeoutfitters.com has some great options. If you can afford Stella McCartney – go for it. Otherwise – payless has amazing vegan shoes! Email me chloe@chloejo.com if you need more ideas.. I run a vegan fashion newsletter. Believe me – the two CAN be synonymous.

Well I never really liked Uggs to begin with but the day has finally come that others have realized that it’s time to give them the boot.

my guess is her opinion is as fake as her other assets…did she get a better offer to sell juicy or stella wear???????..hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…how convenient for her

What a bunch of crap…apparently Pamela Anderson-Lee-Rock (whatever her name is now) doesn’t realize that all the high end shoes she purchases are made of “SKIN” ie: LEATHER. I don’t really see her shopping at the local bargain shoe store to pick up some pleather knock-off. What does she think Manalos and Jimmy’s are made of?????

Ooooh, I can’t wait for her to flaunt the new trend. Standing around on the corner in her bikini protesting KFC for their inhumane killing of chickens!!

I am absolutely going to continue to wear my UGGS. They are awesome kicking around boots. And Pam, really, the info on UGGS material has been on their website forever. Any idiot could read that they are made from an animal. Don’t play so dumb!
