After a class war broke out on another completely unrelated thread, it came up that UGGs are considered a serious no-no on MN. I must confess to owning two pairs (one black and one brown) and as a WFHM I wear them all winter provided it is dry. They are the comfiest, warmest shoes I've ever had. They are like slippers but for outside! I don't wear them on the outside of my trousers, this is a look I don't like, but inside a boot leg I consider them harmless.
Am I deluding myself and walking around in the winter version of crocs?
I personally dont have a problem with UGGs but then again i also love crocs too just like noisytoys I do however hate fake cheap ugg where the soles disintegrate at funny angles and you end up walking behind someone who is dragging their feet along and walking wonky in them.
I break lots of the MN rules about what you are not allowed to wear - Uggs - chavvy Barbour quilted jacket - chavvy Pandora style bracelet - chavvy ankle boots - mumsy denim mini - mumsy skinny jeans - look like a parsnip patterned/coloured tights - odd Probably many more!
I don't think UGGS are that bad. What we do have on Mumsnet is a dedicated and vocal support group for the better quality, cheaper and British made Celtic Sheepskin boot. Their website is hereThere are also great discounts if you can get to their factory shop in Newquay.
I wear them and do not give a fig for MN disapproval They are toasty warm and somehow comforting. And (real ones) weirdly supportive considering they are flat.. I usually can't wear flats but my uggs are fine.
Then again I also wear a Barbour, think that NEXT is still fine for jeans and basics and would probably have Gok Wan sobbing into his hankerchief
ah but Squoosh... you need to go on a proper british camping holiday in August. Then you will BEG for crocs (showers, odd sunny spells) and Uggs (most of the time and probably to sleep in!) Only then can you appreciate their qualities!!
Love uggs...don't see how they can be chavvy if they are soooo expensive?! Of course I would only wear the real ones...the fake do look a bit horrid, as they tend to bend in on themselves, if that makes sense. Well I will have very toasty feet this Christmas as my mom has bought me a lovely grey pair. My ds age 6 loves his pair and they look fab on him, he wears them with his brown corduroy dungarees and a little knitted jumper underneath and his wooly hat.....super cute and not in the least bit chavvy!!! Death stare!!!
