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 still have held out on ever buying a pair, cause I never thought they were cute, but they must be pretty comfy if everyone is as attached to them as they claim here! I agree though, that when it’s freezing outside, ANYTHING that keeps you warm is worth it, fashion approved or not.

When Uggs first came out, I didn’t like them, but I soon changed my mind after I tried my sister’s! Living in Chicago with the temps below zero in the Winter, all I care about is warm and comfortable feet! And they do look cute if worn with the right outfit!

I don’t plan on buying the classic style Uggs (will buy one of the new lace up ones) but I have tried them on. They looked awful on my feet, but they were the WARMEST suckers ever. And living in Montreal, they would be perfect for our subzero winters!

I love my PASTEL UGGS and refuse to give them up. I might look stupid, but you will never hear me complain about cold, sore feet!

i have two pairs- medium length tan ones, and chestnut slippers. i will NOT be giving them up anytime soon- they’re comfy, stylish, and everyone is wearing them around me.

He[[ no, they are the most comfprtable pair of shoes I own. I also have a pair of their slippers and they are awesome, too. I am a Chicago girl too and let me tell you they are GREAT in the Windy City!!

Give them up? No way. I had these boots back when they were UGHs by Eddie Bauer (20 years ago) and still have that pair, that’s how much I like them and they were great before and they’re great now. I agree they’re not the most attractive footwear, however, I bought them for warmth. And, believe it or not, fashion repeats itself…

Okay, I live in sweden, and it’s cold here most of the time, but still – leave those ugly UGG at home! They look awful, and not flattering at all, do you really want to ruin an entire outfit by putting on these gigantic “socks”? It seriously looks like something you could wear to your pyjamas!
This season has really cute ankle boots, if they work in sweden I think it works whereever you live to! :)
