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

I also will still wear my Uggs. I honestly don’t care if they are not in style anymore when you wear heels all week at work, they feel like HEAVEN to wear all day on Saturday. Plus I live in NYC and I still see plenty of fashionable ladies rockin’ Uggs.

I live in New England…they are a necessity for warmth in the late fall/winter. I also waited to get on the “Ugg bandwagon”…and now find myself owning 5 pairs! They are pointless in the snow, being suede and all, but on a cold day they are perfect to throw on. I don’t think they are a ‘trend’ anymore…more of a staple of a fall/winter shoe wardrobe (IN COLD CLIMATES!)

Who cares if they are ugly?! When it’s blistering cold outside and your toes feel like they’re gonna fall off, comfort supersedes fashion. They are so warm and cozy. I totally agree with the last post.. Uggs with mini skirts are hideous. I think they are actually cute when worn with jeans and a nice sweater and a scarf or something. :)

i hate uggs. theyrs so ugly! i have hated them ever since i first saw them. the tan ones are ok (sorta.) but the pastels are just awful.

Heck no. I work three jobs and my feet need to be cozy! Uggs all the way.

I’ll never get rid of my Uggs, even if they are UGGLY. Who can really wear 3 inch heels to go shopping and walk around in the winter? Not I!

I had a pair of uggs when I was 17, I’m now 27, we lived in the Northwest at the time, so I liked mine for a few years back then but I guess when everyone else started wearing them, it kind of was my cue to stop, you girls who say every other girl had them on, do something original! You don’t want to be like “every other girl” As for allternatives, the wellies sound cute, if we’re talking about serious snow, uggs will leak through.

I agree that the pastel Uggs aren’t that attractive looking, but I love the chocolate brown Uggs and the Tan ones.
