A paie of Uggs.

I have a scra on one ankle which aches terribly if my feet get cold. I have bought a £10 of fake (very fake) Uggs as slippers and my feet have been so warm and so toasty I can't help thinking that I should ge a pair of the real McCoy for outdoors.

Help me please <rocks in corner>

ease yourself with some emus. Much cheaper, just as toasty.

Trust me, I'm an Aussie grin

i think they are acceptable for medical reasons wink

Do it. They're so ubiquitous now it's just like wearing jeans anyway.

LetThemEatCake Sun 08-Nov-09 21:45:28

and only ever wear indoors.

Not for public ocular (??) consumption, either of 'em

Succumbed last year - bought two more pairs in New York due to price difference.

You can never go back!

Nooooo, this is NOT what I want to hear!

I must not buy Uggs <writes out 500 times>

well, my first pair of just sheepskin boots are almost worn out after nearly 2 years of rain and miles of pushchair pushing and I am going to get another pair of boots even if I have to eat budget baked beans and scrape together the money to get them. Uggs / Emus / Just sheepskins etc are so boomin' warm and dry you will be converted.

buy british instead

I got some from <sshhh> Clarks. sheepskin, toasty, and good for my feet grin

Give in, give in, give in! I too resisted for years. Just got a pair on Saturday and they are so incredibly cosy. I suffer terribly from freezy cold feet and have always worn my normal leather boots with sheepskin insoles in winter. But these are just on another level. However, I have turned into the most boring person because all I want to talk about is my boots. I have Uggs but Celtic Sheepskin come highly recommended and a good bit cheaper.

also wavering, but for a rocketdog equivalent.

but do they make short-arses look even shorter and chunkier, do you think??

GentleOtter Mon 09-Nov-09 12:23:53

They have a half price sale today <runs away>

elsiepiddock Mon 09-Nov-09 12:27:57

I have been an Ugg-hater, but have just bought some!

They are so warm and cosy. I still think they look hideous - but I have been brainwashed.
