Are You Ready To Give Up Uggs?

11/09/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

One of the most loved-and-hated trends of the past few years has been the emergence of Uggs — originally popular with L.A. girls like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, the look spread like wildfire. To be honest, I fought the trend for as long as possible, only succumbing to their cuddly charm in the midst of a blizzard last winter. I know the pastel look, especially the bedazzled variety, have long worn out their welcome, but can’t I wear my tan ones when the temperatures drop? Do I need a new pair of boots to keep me warm this winter? What about you: Are you ready to give up your Uggs? If so, what are you replacing them with?Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

Ladies, I understand that Uggs are great for those of you that live in cold climates, but please, please do me a favor! If you have the pastel type and they get extremely dirty and nasty, REPLACE THEM. I’ve seen way too many pairs that started about pink and are now a gray, muddy color, yuck! They aren’t a great fashion statement in the first place, but when they are dirty they are awful!!

I have to say that I never really liked uggs since the beggining. They look great for like playing in the snow but the people who wear them with skirts and shorts, it’s just like, Did you forget to take off your slippers?

Ugg boots have been around for decades — in Australia. Those Uggs that everyone wears in American are ripped off from what we Aussies have been wearing for years. NEVER have they been a fashion statement here. No one dares wear them outside their own home or beyond a trip to the local supermarket. That Americans talk about them being fashionable and cool is just ridiculous. Uggs can’t be out of fashion because they were never in!

Thank you for finally recognizing that uggs need to go. I’m so sick of seeing them everywhere. the newest trend is ULU boots, they are just as comftorable and much more fashionable. Although, all of you animal lover may not approve…

All my friends told me how ugly they were last year, and I could of cared less because once you put your feet in them you don’t ever want to take them off. I ended up getting the slippers and all. Now all my girlfriends are sporting them…and why? because they are sickly comfortable…they now all thank me. Nothing that comfortable can go out of style!!!
