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 so over misinformed celebrities making ridiculous ill-informed statements. She has joined the hall of stupidity with Pink (who has since apologised ……)!!

Peta is stupid.
that kfc campaign thing they did is a total lie. kfc doesn’t kill their own chickens. They BUY it. and why would they waste time and money to get chickens and throw them against a wall? it takes longer..and it’s disgusting.

peta is messed up. and juicy is ugly.-__- i lose respect for anyone who is a part of peta.

How could she not know? That’s the reason why they’re so warm and cozy, coz they’re made of real sheep skin. She claims she loved them so much she’s bought UGGS for family and boyfriends thru the years… and yet it never entered her mind :(

I am so happy the hollywood stars are giving this trend up!!! they are so ugly and they have been out of style for about a year.hopefully a cuter shoe will be more popular:)

i love my uggs. maybe it is just that they are a lot more popular up north in new england where i live, where they are actually USEFUL and make a difference. i would never give them up. yeah, i wear other shoes too but there is nothing like slipping on a pair of uggs. i think they are cute and add to any outfit. and wow is pam a total idiot? uhm yes. what did she think they were made of? the whole thing about ugg boots is that they are authentic sheepSKIN

If Pam wants to give up her UGGS for something that she really believes in, more power to her! Me, on the other hand, love UGGS and will continue to wear em!

uggs are not just the wool! the sheeps are not “not hurt” by it. that outer part is their SKIN. uggs are the skin with the hair still attached.

dont be STUPID

they may be comfortable, but they give me the creeps. oh yay, i’m wearing around sheep SKIN

when the ugg guy said that other thing, he meant they don’t torture animals, not that the sheeps arent KILLED.
if you don’t wear fur, you shouldn’t wear UGGS

Circe on

I bought a pair of Ugg boots 30 years in New Hampshire before they ever were thought of as a “fashion.” Animal skin is the warmest and most comfortable substance and people don’t think twice about eating sheep (mutton) or lamb(baby sheep!) Many cultures honor the animals that give us food and clothing and, although I draw the line of killing animals for fashion, I believe in using them to keep warm in cold climates. (Do they really need to wear them in LA?)

give me a break. everyone know’s they’re made of sheepskin. I guess PA was running low on personal scandals and wanted some publicity. To say that she didn’t know what the shoes are made off just made her look even more moronic than usual.

All you PETA lovers are so pathetic. Let’s support a real organization like SPCla or Humane Society. I am so sick of these has been celebrities spewing out what they think are intelligent thoughts. Has Pam ever thought of what animal was tested in the process of making those lovely implants….does that mean she will quit enhancing herself artificially? She is so worthless and disguisting. Let’s get some real news out there like bring our young men and women back from Iraq. Who cares what these useless celebrities think….time to put on my comfy UGGS!
