The Great Debate


Some swear by them. Others claim they are the UGGliest boots ever created. This debate seems to be never ending between my friends and family; but really...why hasn't the trend of Uggs gone away?

For as long as they've been popular in my town, I have considered them quite unattractive--especially the "short" ones. I could never wrap my head around why people wear the short Uggs. But then, I found an ad in a magazine for this gloriously hippie, flower-embroidered pair. I drooled over their uniqueness that set them apart from other Uggs for months. But when I finally had enough money to buy them, the wait list was over 4 months long, and winter would be long over by then.

This season, I considered the idea of purchasing a pair of Uggs ahead of time. The only pair I would ever wear are the "tall" ones in either Chocolate or Black. Before I knew it, I was ordering a pair of chocolate Uggs last night on Shopbop. I'm still not positive I should've bought them. My rationale is that a) winter is FREEZING here, and my Birkenstocks probably aren't the best winter shoes, b) they will last many, many years to come, and c) brown (or shall I say, "chocolate") goes with my whole wardrobe, so it won't be too hard to find clothes that look good with them.

I guess it's a little to late now, but what does everyone else think about Uggs? Have you given in and bought a pair of this never ending "trend"?

I have to say, given my height and stockiness, they were never a shoe for me. But, I'm told they're super comfortable and very warm by folks who said they'd never wear them...so you never know!

They came and went over here, but stayed in my closet. I have a dog and I'm totally happy to just slip into them and head outside in winter. They are beyond comfortable and warm (perfect for winter!!!).
