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?

Pamela Anderson is an idiot. How can you not know what they’re made from. It even says in the little booklet you get with your shoes. I LOVE my Uggs. They are the most comfortable things in the world. My feet are in heaven in them. I can’t let them go.

I guess she likes everything fake…just like her boobs.

Pamela is an utter dolt. How did she NOT know Uggs were made from real sheepskin? Duh, Pammy.

Personally, I could care less what other people wear. It’s nobody else’s business.

who cares on

I gave uggs up 2 weeks after they first came out. i donated my only pair to charity, the y were hardly worn.
I do not wear fur, leather or anything else and the only reason i am not a vegetarian is because I am 14 and my family is not a vegetarian family.

No Elizabeth, I don’t care. That is why humans are at the top of to food chain….

I have to agree with Pam. I just got new uggs but after learning this they must get the boot! It’s inhumane and I’m a vegitarian so how can I keep them?

I have about 4 pairs of Uggs and I love mine. While I don’t really support the killing of animals for fur, I don’t plan on giving up my Uggs.

How dumb is that? After wearing it forever she know realised it’s made with sheepskin..SHAME! I emailed the compagnie of Ugg last year and they told me “Instead of wasting those sheepskin in the food industry, we bought them.”

I will NOT get rid them just because Pamela Anderson clued in to what likely most people have known all along. I believe that aanimals are not the same as humans, regardless of what some people think. I love my UGGS and would be devastated to lose their cuddly warmth!! Fake Uggs are exactly that–fake! For the most part, their appearance is lacking to that of a genuine Ugg and they are not as comfortable or as warm!
