Oops title should say "Ugg Boots ... which kind? Worth the money ..."

I like the Bailey Buttons. I have a pair of fake UGG boots from last year which I love and now want to get the real ones. When my student loan ever comes I will be after some grey Bailey Buttons!
I've worn my £10 fako's for about 8 months though and they are just starting to look a bit shit so real ones should last ages and ages and therefore worth it. I know lots of people rate other brands though.

The bailey buttons come up small, I'm an 8 and usually buy a 41 in Uggs but the 42 was too small

ABitBatty Tue 20-Oct-09 17:36:38

Oooh interesting. I was going to buy a 3. I'm normally a 4 and thought they came up big (from what I have read, haven't tried them on yet)

I think they all look like baked potatoes and make you do that funny shuffly walk like a inmate of a mental hospital...And £160, Jesus. But I am aware I am in the minority and probably have no taste at all so don't listen to me! grin

Baked potatoes are toasty warm and lovely though grin

I've got the Classic Short Uggs and they are well worth the money (although I cheated a bit, got mine in the US a couple of years ago when the exchange rate was fab, worked out at about £80). Comfiest things I've ever worn on my feet. That said they definitely do make you shuffle and can look slightly odd, depends how bothered you are about this!

I got the tall chocolate ones and they really are very comfy and snug and cosy!

But they don;t go with everything, and you do have to be mindful of how you walk so you dont; end up shuffling along.

Can't comment on other makes I'm afraid but if you want them and can afford them why not.

if you are under a size 5 you can get the kids ones, i paid £100 for the classic short ones in kids.

they also do kids ones like the Mayfair for £165.

I have tall classic, short classic and Bailey Button Uggs. They serve their purpose. They're unbeatable for slinging on with jeans and a cardi for shopping, school run, casual days etc. No, they're aren't uber stylish, but I am yet to find a shoe that is as comfy and warm for winter. I also use them as slippers around the house once they get worn/old. Bliss!

I got a pair for my birthday in February - tall classic ones. I love them. Theya re the only pair of footware, bar slippers, that hasn't given me blisters. I wear them so often. Now the weather has turned I have worn them almost daily again.

I wear mine with jeans, trousers, long skirts and short skirts and tights.

Oh, and I don't shuffle - I simply walk properly!

Last year I had Emu ones but this year I bought Uggs - I have them in short grey.

Reikezen, no make that inmates of a mental hospital with club feet.
They are fucking hideous.

MonstrousMerryHenry Tue 20-Oct-09 23:35:27

I think all Uggs are vile.

MerryHenry how are you -are you still doing the Wii - sorry for the hijack!

MonstrousMerryHenry Wed 21-Oct-09 00:03:24

Doing the Wii? Err...are you referring to that Wii day some of us went to in London? (whispers: I've never actually owned a wii!)

I have a feeling that you're the lady who said at the time that she thought her name was naff - is that right? Did we sit next to each other (or nearly)?

NeedaNewName Wed 21-Oct-09 00:04:48

yes thats right - I thought yuo had one - oh well must be getting old and the memory playing tricks!

Still not changed the name to anything better

MonstrousMerryHenry Wed 21-Oct-09 00:06:35

grin I don't recall you being especially old! I think your name is great, actually - stick with it, girl!

How have you been? I've now moved to the coast and got myself up the duff. No time like the present, as they say.

NeedaNewName Wed 21-Oct-09 00:07:32

Wow congratulations - a lots happened since the Wii day.

When are you due?

Tortington Wed 21-Oct-09 00:07:32

MonstrousMerryHenry Wed 21-Oct-09 00:08:08

MonstrousMerryHenry Wed 21-Oct-09 00:15:36
