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 love my UGGS. never ever will i get rid of them. they are so practical, warm and cute. the perfect commuting shoes for work and awesome with a skirt.

NEVER! I live in Colorado and they are absolutly the most comfortable apre ski shoes ever! Don’t care if they are out. I really don’t think that comfortable will ever be out.

they might be making their way toward the back of everyone else’s closet, but as a college kid in the snow belt of ohio, i’m keeping mine. they’re not only perfect for walking to your 8AM class in the snow, but are quick to throw on and are more comfortable than anything else.

There is no way i will ever give up my Uggs – they are just the warmest, most comfortable boot ever. I don’t even care what they look like when they’re on because they’re just too damn good to even think about not wearing them!!

I’m keeping my pink Uggs! They are the most comfortable things I own, especially for the Chicago winters. I think they are better looking then some of the other boots out there. I’m sure people who live in colder weather will continue to wear them!

I live in Buffalo and I’ve had my black UGGS for ten years. I’ve never had anything more comfortable or warmer on my feet. I will never give them up. It’s not a fashion thing; it’s a winter survival thing.

Why should Paris get rid of her Uggs? If she wants to wear them, then she can! I’m not wearing pastel uggs, but I would like a new pair of tan ones…and I guess you can tell that I’m not giving up my uggs either!

Maybe the pastel colors can go, I never liked those, but I just bought a pair of tan look-alike uggs with fur instead of the shearling…it may sound tacky, but they’re really adorable, it dresses them up and makes them different. But I also have a pair of tan wedge suede boots from last winter that were a pretty big hit, and are coming back this year that are a step up from the basic uggs. I work in an expensive all designer-label mall in cold Michigan and have already seen tons of people with their Uggs on, so I know when I’m wearing them again this year I won’t be alone.

I’m not giving up my tan Uggs! They are an absolute lifesaver in the fall and winter and one of the most practical footwear purchases I’ve made in a while. Another practical purchase: a pair of black knee high rainboots – another lifesaver! Living in the city and walking everywhere is a lot easier thanks to these smart buys ;)

not so sure about the pastels but i will probably wear them for the rest of my life.
