Opinions please on UGG cardy boots - (naffness or otherwise, and sizing)...

I saw these in a magazine the other day and for some unfathomable reason quite liked them. I have, until now, hated Ugg boots and never seen the point of them. I am unsure why I like these, but I do.

Other opinions welcome as I feel I need some external guidance here!

If I do finally succomb, what is the sizing like?

(BTW I hate the turned down look, but think they could work in the full length mode.)

A friend has them in black
I quite like them (but I have very odd taste)

Not sure of the sizing.

They are the sullen teens' footwear of choice round these parts. I would therefore say don't do it.

They remind me of grandpa slippers just higher..Sorry !

i love them, but would be afraid that they would slouch after a while.

LyraSilvertongue Mon 19-Oct-09 19:06:36

I love mine and they are the comfiest footwear I own.
On the sizing, mine came up small.

LyraSilvertongue Mon 19-Oct-09 19:07:23

Btw I hate all other styles of ugg boots too.

LyraSilvertongue Mon 19-Oct-09 19:09:22

You can buy them online for far less than £125. I paid under £70 for mine from a US website (can't remember the name of it, twas last year). They're the genuine article.

Is there any particulat benefit to buying real Ugg boots? do they replace them if they break, like those sunglasses that were popular a few years ago? Cos, I've seen these in Stead and Simpson for about £30 and they look exactly the same to me. Does one need to prove shoe provenance for any reason?

The cheap fakes don';t last five minutes. I was talking to someone about this on Friday and she'd got hers from Barratts. They looked terrible and were only a few months old. Mine are a year old and still look new.

Ahh, fair enough then, thanks LyraSilvertongue. Like MLM, I too would be concerned that they'd go all saggy and stretched. Weirdly enough though, I quite like the way they look folded down, but I don't think I could really pull that look off.

LyraSilvertongue Mon 19-Oct-09 19:22:24

Mine aren't saggy or stretched. They look great with skinny jeans or skirts with tights. Not so good on bare legs and they don't stay up without something to cling to.

For some reason I like them too. Like you, I'm worried there a bit naff though.

VictoriousSponge Mon 19-Oct-09 19:43:06

naff and vile

They're nice, very cosy and comfy for the winter.

ScaryFucker Mon 19-Oct-09 19:51:51

nice slippers

snowmummy Mon 19-Oct-09 20:14:03

Oops spelling I meant

they're

Imisssleeping Mon 19-Oct-09 20:19:20

You will look like an uber chav.

confuseddoiordonti Mon 19-Oct-09 20:27:08

I have some and, while I do like them, I don't wear them as much as I thought I would. Also, while they look okay in the mirror, looking down on them when I have them on they look very baggy (on the foot part rather than the leg part, I know they are meant to be baggy on the leg part.)
They are also not great if you walk loads, which I do, as they are very flat. However, this is obviously not an issue if you are more of a driver than a walker...

Fucking hideous.
Rememeber to accessorize with muffin top, love bites and arse antlers. Oh, and trowel on the foundation.
Voila!

Ewe Mon 19-Oct-09 22:29:48

They are incredibly chavvy around here. My little sister (17) has two pairs and she is going through a big chav phase...

Verdict: Naff.

LyraSilvertongue Mon 19-Oct-09 23:20:06

They're not chavvy where I live.
I love my cardi Uggs and won't hear a word said against them.

paddingtonbear1 Mon 19-Oct-09 23:31:51

I like some styles of UGG boots, but not the cardy ones. Not sure why, but I just think they look naff!

ninagleams Mon 19-Oct-09 23:32:23

Chav is basically another word for lower class isn't it? Well I'm not enough of a snob to reject something because it looks 'lower class' so go for it! I love them and I'm going to ask for some for Christmas!
