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

Of course not. I love them so! Including the pastel ones. I do not think they are ugly either. They seem like a fine choice for, lets say, a quiet cold evening to the movies (no one suggested to wear them in a nightclub or should ever have in the first place).

I will NOT be gving up my uggs!! Of course they are ugly -what do you think uggs means?! But they are warm and comfy!! I have my dress boots that are super cute, but for warmth and comfort I go straight to my uggs!! I do agree that Paris needs a new pair – hers are looking a little scuzzy – and a neutral color might be a good idea.

They are the most comfortable shoes to wear during the winter. Why would I get rid of them? Sometimes comfort and warmth has to overrule the end of a trend. If you love something, you should wear it:)

I’m Canadian, and Uggs are still huge here… though that’s probably a result of our -40*C winters, not style. Despite the cold, I’ve never bought into the hideous trend… I’d rather freeze than slog around looking like bigfoot all winter. I have a cute pair of lined black leather boots, with a 1″ heel… they’re warm enough, durable enough, and I don’t feel frumpy in them.

I think people should wear what they want to wear, when they want to wear it. I am tired of celebrities and or the media deciding when something is out of style. If you like it, wear it!


love love love my Ugg’s!!!never give up:)

well, I HATE the boots, but I love the mule slides…I have some and they are the warmest shoe EVER…Living in Minot, middleof nowhere, North Dakota you need warmth. However, they are not good for walking in snow, they will leak through and if you don’t take care of them they will stain the suede, so you really can only wear them on dry cold days.

NEVER! You will rip my uggs away when I’m dead. Once you’ve worn them you never go back. Mine are the tall chestnut & they are perfectly ratty and I’m in them all weekend with jeans. I didn’t like the whole dress & Uggs phase, but they are practical & amazingly comfortable shoes. Who cares if Paris is still wearing them or not?

I love my Ugg’s. But here’s the thing, you never wear them in the summer. What’s the point?! They are SO comfy and they look cute with a pair of jeans or when I’m up in the mountains before I go snowboarding. Keep your Ugg’s, they’ll never go out of style. Just make sure you put them away when spring comes!

I still wear Uggs, but it’s the cute lace-up ones from the current season, NOT the pastel ones.
