Pam Is Giving Up Her Uggs: Will You?

02/23/2007 at 05:15 PM ET

Last fall we asked your opinion on one of the most loved-and-hated trends of the past few years — Uggs Boots — originally popular with L.A. girls like Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Pamela Anderson — and you overwhelmingly said you still loved them. Now, longtime animal-rights supporter Anderson has announced that she is discarding the cozy footwear, saying on her website: “I am getting rid of them…. I used to wear them with my red swimsuit to keep warm — never realizing they were SKIN!” Since this winter is not quite over yet, we want to know: Are you still not ready to give up your Uggs? If you are, what are you replacing them with?

I am all for animals rights so why not just buy knock off’s that are not made with the real skin? Easy solution!

Uggs are Uggly and inhumane. Pam is smart to loose them and everyone should follow her lead and dump them too…and while they’re at it refuse to wear/support fur, leather, or any other animal skin or hair.

I love my Uggs..sorry Im not giving them up! Ive worn the knockoffs and they are NOTHING like authentic Uggs.

I’d go for an alternative to sheepskin. There’s no sense in wearing dead animal skin if there are alternatives.

You think PETA would have been all over her about that.

in my humble opinion, uggs are the ugliest fashion trend known to man. im sure they are comfortable and warm, but i dont find them attractive at all. it looks like you are trying WAY too hard.

Can Pam read????It’s impossible if she didn’t know what it made from at the beginning time she wore the UGGs.

Yuck!!! You’ll end up with smelly feet regardless if you wear dead animal or artificial boots….I am giving them up for stilettos!!!

Alice on

UGGs are ugly and that reason alone should be sufficient to keep people from wearing them!! They do look comfy but I’m sure you can find alternatives. If the fact that they’re made of skin will keep them out of our sight, then great. But I agree with what others said – how could she not have known…(?) I do appreciate her commitment to the anti-fur cause, though.

Charlotte Canfield on

She never notice this before, she wore them everyday?! What did she think they were made of?
