Are they any good in the rain or snow? Or do they look a mess really quickly?

You can get real ones for £80 here ...

TK Maxx had size 7/8 ones for £35 last month.

If they're real sheepskin then yes, they are excellent in bad weather. Mine are black though so can't vouch for what lighter colours would look like! (although you can machine wash some - like my Celtic Sheepskin ones).

Wow - £35!! Shame I'm only a size 2! You could've made some dosh on Ebay with those.

Thinking about getting Chestnut ones - or maybe Sand (I think they only have Sand left in my size. hmm.

Anyone had any lighter colour Uggs?

I have seen people in quite grotty looking ones, and I was wondering if they were just really old, but they couldn't bare to part with them, or if they get dirty really quickly.

I am a proud UGG wearer, and have a sand coloured pair that would officially be classed as grotty. Think about it, winter = wet and dirty, sand coloured suede will get really grubby.

I haven't cleaned them yet so I can't tell you how they good they'll come up with a bit of a scrub i'm afraid. But I love mine just as they are - they look loved and worn.

cute in pink on a 5 uear old but they shouldn't be made in any size bigger than a childs 12.. don't do it!

Aren't they like ponchos now - tres last year ?

Dh was wearing Ugg boots (the genuine article) the first time I saw him (1989 - he was always ahead of his time). I said to my mate "check out that prat in the slippers..."

LOVE my uggs! Bought in a moment of indulgence last year. Mine are sand coloured and pretty grotty looking, but I didn't weatherproof mine before going out in the rain wearing them under jeans so they now have a lovely blue tinge. But you CANNOT beat them for comfort, and I do wear them around the house a lot. V V expensive slippers

Haven't Uggs become fashion classics these days? a bit like combats are? (or have I just made a faux pas??) I wouldn't go near a poncho any more though. I'm a naturally messy person and make a complete mess of most of my footwear really quickly for some reason - always have done so sandy Uggs don't sound like they'll last very long.. they look sooo cosy though, and v flattering.

Anyone know of boots that look like Uggs but are really weatherproof and grub-resistant?

Marthamoo/Mascara/Cod - what are you going to be wearing this winter?
