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?

Skin is made in a lot of shoes and boots. Give up uggs, if you want to not because of Anderson’s choice.

OK…it is hard to find cute non leather shoes…but COME ON-UGGS are nasty, and make your legs look short and fat. No matter how cute you think you are, they are a stupid trend!

Hey all of the fashionistas, would you skin your little purse pooches, and wear them on your feet?

I didn’t know they where made from skin. I’ve never worn them and never would. They are ugly. I’m just surprised she didn’t know that. I’m also surprised that PETA wasn’t all over that too. Don’t they make up a list of items to avoid that is made from aminals like the list of makeup companies to avoid that use testing on aminals??? I’m surprised they don’t.

Good for Pam! Personally, I’ve never liked the look of Uggs, so they will not be missed.

Honestly what did you thinkg they were made from. Anyway, it is a byproduct of the sheep meat industry, it is not like they are raised only for there skin, like most animals raised for fur. Leather is a byprodcut of the meat industry, so now if you give up your Uggs you have to give up all your leather products too.

I wouldn’t give up natural for synthetic….At least natural is not adding to the global warming trend…It doesn’t have to be manufactured, and no part of the animal is wasted. No I wouldn’t give up my boots when its blowing 10′ of snow, and 40 below are you crazy!?!?!?!?! They’d rather use synthetic that takes an enormous amount of energy to make and probably using petroleum biproducts ….thats so nice…she’s an idiot and I never liked her. Don’t call me an animal hater either cuz Im not, I’m just realistic and she is just NOT.

Are you kidding me? She just figured it out? I was given a pair of Uggs as a gift and the first thing I did was to see what they were made of. Did no ONE a PETA have time in all these years to inform her that they are made from sheep! Hello Pam pull your head out of the clouds! I just cant take Hollywood anymore!

I’m not giving mine up!!! I’m all about animal rights but I love love love my Uggs!!! All you people out there that think they’re ugly just don’t know how to work ’em!! :)

You should only wear Ugg boots when your bumming around, b/c there the ugliest thing every. Like somebody else said, they make your legs look really short and they just look sloppy. Yeah, i’m sure they feel good, but please, their ugly.
