What do you think about them? I'm skeptical..
Actually, I think they're ugly but I'm CONSTANTLY freezing and they're SO warm and comfortable, ugh..
I think I have to buy a pair because I don't know any other warm shoes that look good! :(

I think some of the decorated ones are cute but the plain ones rub me the wrong way. I can't figure out why.

I think they're horrible, sorry. Where I live, EVERY girl seems to have a pair (or two... or three) and it's like you MUST have uggs. I don't like to follow the mass and I just think they're kind of shapeless, like stumps on your feet. :/

Some girls seem to wear them quite nice, though.

I have a love/hate relationship with them. I have how 99.9999% of how girls wear them, most just can't pull it off. I rarely wear mine but they are incredibly comfy and they feel so snugg. I just hope i do pull them off. Alternatively, you can buy those sheepskin cushion/or insoles or whatever they're called from the Ugg store. I only found out recently, I'm thinking of doing that to use in some of my other shoes.

To me, they are ugly. They really have no shape to them at all. As well, every girl apparently has uggs and I'd rather not have something everyone has.

Ugly, tacky, overrated. Cannot understand the hype over them. Would never wear those in public or in private. I'd rather have cold feet than have bad style ;)

You took the words right out of my mouth, and I live in Northern Canada where it can reach -40 -45 Celcius in the winter and I wouldn't be caught dead in those things.

I own a pair of them because they were on sale a couple of years ago. I didn't have a car yet and had to take the bus/train a lot. The winter was very snowy and cold.
But now I don't wear them anymore. They are ugly, that's undenieable

I can't hate on them :lol: Last winter when my bmi was 14ish I would have died without them. You remember those days when it was -16 or something in germany? well I went out with normal shoes and after like 5 minuter my hands and feet started burning so badly that I cried and had to go back in V__V so my mom made me buy some and duuuude it saved me! No more cold cramps!

i don't like them, they're the opposite of elegance... it's funny i've heard so many guys talking about them how unattractive they find them on girls, i didn't know they were so disliked by some guys (didn't think they would pay that much attention)...

they look great on adriana(i don't like her outfit, but her legs there though)

I am Australian and was so surprised when I moved to europe to find that they are considered fashionable and are about 3x more expensive than they are in Oz. I always have to get a pair for some friend when I go back to visit ha. But I personally can't get over the began image they have for Australians so I chose not to wear them.
However they can be quite practical for the cold weather, so I see why not?

I think the classic/plain ones look fine with the pant over them. They're just really plain and standard and match anything that way.

Some of the decorated ones are cute too.

I think children look cute in them



I've never had a pair. I've been tempted, when my sister was getting some, so that I could wear them on skiing trips for when I'm changing in and out of ski boots... but I resisted. I don't actually think they're the worst shoes you can ever wear, when people wear them with an OK winter outfit, there's just nicer shoes for me to get my hands on :grin:

If you want warm feet, wear big fluffy warm socks with your cute non-ugg boots. When you buy shoes try them on with those socks so your toes don't get squished.

It's good to have a spare pair around to walk in, like as in a walk around your neighborhood.

UGGS + JUICY SWEATS = OFFICIAL UNKNOWLEDGABLE FASHIONISTA UNIFORM



Ugg? More like Uggly!

Seriously, they look like a cross bewteen astronaut boots and slippers.
This stuff is for nightmares.

EDIT: I guess they wouldn't look so uggly if they were worn the way they are supposed to, like in the ad campaigns

Too bad they never look as good as they do in the ads. I think they are incredibly ugly on normal people and I will probably never wear them. One reason I can't stand them is because it seems like after people have worn them for a while, they loose their shape and then the person just shuffles along, dragging their feet.
