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 will NEVER, EVER give up my UGGS!!!! They are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever stepped in. I live in Philadelphia where the temp can drop down to single digits. Leave UGGS alone and get rid of the skinny jeans!!

L.A. and Hollywood HARDLY sets the “trend” for the more fashionable here on the EAST (a la NYC, Philly). With that being said, UGGs are actually USEFUL here when the temperature drops… how annoying is it to see fake tan, fake blonds in L.A. running around in a tank and shorts with Ugg SUNDANCE II (of all boots!)?!?!! It saddens me to the point where I resisted the trend of the classic Uggs (and got the even more useful Larkspur… all leather, waterproof, 10″ height, PERFECT for snow…now sold out!)… but have finally ordered my first classic talls today. Can’t wait for them to arrive, but UGGs are not a trend; for anywhere else besides CALI, they are a classic!

I love my Uggs… I could care less if they are still considered “trendy” or not. Uggs are so comfy and practical, and if you know how to dress ’em up right, can look very classy. They are heaven on your feet.

Andrea on

No way. My boots are way too cozy to give up and my Kylie clogs are still too cute. Besides, it’s not like I care if they are “out” this season. I didn’t buy them cause they were “in” to begin with. I bought them because they are way comfy! Wellies on the other hand will never touch my feet since I do not were man made materials on my tootsies!

Maggie on

No, sorry, I can’t give Uggs up. They need to be used properly (as with all clothes), but they’re too comfortable to fall victim to “trend”. They *were* trendy, now they’re just a staple.

I have two pairs of UGGS- both in pink. I love mine and am going to wear them regardless to what people think.

To Andrea, who said that her Uggs are pointless in the snow: I got some leather/suede moisture protection spray from a local leather shop, and it works wonders! (Could probably find the same kind of stuff at Wilson’s or any quality shoe store)
I wear my pink Uggs all winter! I’m in the Chicago area, and it’ll be a while before I’m willing to give these babies up! I also see them all over the place, being worn by cute, stylish women who also want to keep their toes from falling off!

Mell on

I know that they are now “out” but, I can not resist. I am buying a new pair this weekend. Being that I live in New England and not LA, I think I have the right to wear the fluffy and oh so warm boot.

kasey on

honestly i don’t care what any one says about my UGGS, i just bought a new 300$ pair last week, i live in boston it gets COLD here in the winter so i need them. no one is going to tell me what i should or shouldnt wear ( unless it is completely hideous/outrageous)

Cari on

I love UGGs but i also think an alternative for rain snow … are rain boots from target..they have some that are stripped polka dot and tons of other sute ones and they are only 19.99. I just orderd a pair today!
