Don't all flame me, but are Ugg classic cardy boots a bit passe?

Will I fall at the first hurdle of school gate style, if I get a pair in Oatmeal to see me through the next couple of terms?

Advice please before I shell out for something that I will be laughed at for.

I do really like them.

i really like them too, go on treat yourself.

I thnk they are lovely......and shall be investing myself shortly grin

I think so. I'm not particularly thin, though, so I might look a bit chunky in them, but I think I'll see if I can find a pair on the interweb.

Thanks grin

moodlumthehoodlum Wed 03-Sep-08 17:04:39

Dozymare Wed 03-Sep-08 17:06:23

yes ugly, but oh so comfy.....who said "fashion" had to be pretty?!!!! grin

What are my options though for throw on style on cold mornings then, boot wise?

SheikYerbouti Wed 03-Sep-08 17:07:35

there are lots of other comfy shoes around

Uggs are yuksville, imho wink

If you actually like them - get them!

can you stretch to winter soles? they look much better imo and last for ages. I'm about to do the 3rd winter in mine

moodlumthehoodlum Wed 03-Sep-08 17:09:30


what are winter soles?

yes, what are winter soles??!! I like the fact UGGS are not stiff leather boots with zips that dig onto your legs!

boogeek Thu 04-Sep-08 10:36:04

I am tempted too but a bit put off by the fact you only ever see them worn with skinny jeans. Am not a skinny jean person. Does anybody have any alternative suggestions?

Primark have got rip offs - with a sturdy sole for £6. £4 for the ankle ones.

I personally don't like them and people always end up walking in on them

ladytophamhatt Thu 04-Sep-08 10:40:37

outdoor slippers.

CourtneyLush Thu 04-Sep-08 10:45:47

Uggs are horrible, why would you want to walk round looking like you've forgotten to put the other half of your chewbacca fancy dress outfit on!!

BloodySmartarseToTheRescue Thu 04-Sep-08 10:50:44

all you detractors, you have to put some ON and then youll know why people like em. they are a lush lazy sunday morning in bed with 99tog duvet and full english breakfast for feet. i shit you not, they are heaven to wear.
[orders a new pair as mine are 3 yrs old now and the sheepskin inners not as lush anymore]

BloodySmartarseToTheRescue Thu 04-Sep-08 10:52:21

ok, so my question is; does anyone know where the cheapest place to get real uggs is? fakes a false economy imo/e...

psychomum5 Thu 04-Sep-08 10:56:26

I used to hate uggs, and TBH, I still won;t buy them.


DD1 has the fake ones from primark, and she is my size shoe how. I tried them one morning rushing to the docs (and was being too lazy to find my boots). OMG were they comfy.

I see the attraction now.....altho I will still only steal borrow herswink

What about a pair of snowjoggers, apparently they are the new UGGS. Quite fancy a pair myself but I dont know if I have the legs for them, I might have a bit of an Oompah Loompah about me if I wear them.

I love my Uggs, and will not be parted from them in the winter. But I am a Scouser, so don't listen to me. grin
