But why are Uggs still going strong in these groups? Perhaps because they are the easy option; they are the slippers of the outside world, and are guaranteed to keep your feet warm in the cold winter months. However does this make up for their lack of style, ubiquitous nature and their ability to make you walk flat-footed? I think I’ll give them a miss.
Much to my bemusement the Ugg opening in London’s new Westfield shopping centre caused mass hysteria, so much so that doorman still have to control the flow of people every weekend.
I had a pair in 2004 whilst at University for the comfort and got rid of them after a year because I thought they were dated then. Perhaps Ugg wearers are hoping that they’ll come full circle again like wide-legged jeans, platform shoes and sequins. Word of advice, you store items that you perceive as having future fashion credentials, you do not wear them solidly until they come back in fashion!
What is your opinion on Ugg boots? Do you love or hate them?
