Now for one of my absolute pet hates; UGG, or should I say UGGly boots. (Original, I know.) Sure, many will argue that they are the most comfortable shoes they own and they are super warm in the cold etc. etc., but after this argument, they have absolutely no more cards to play. This is definitely a risky post since so many people (including some blacklisted friends and family members of my own) have “invested” in a pair, but here we go nevertheless…
For a range of shoes that is specially created for the winter, I could not have handpicked a worse design myself with which to take on the elements. As soon as an UGG boot so much as sniffs the scent of rain in the air, it crumbles and cries and shouts “you go on ahead without me!”. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist; a shoe made entirely out of soft material will go soggy in the rain and the snow. Fact.
So we’ve established that we cannot wear our UGG boots in the winter… then when can we wear them? Not only are they completely impractical for the rainy half of the year, but they are also useless for the warmer half, offering nothing but the promise of imminent sweat and a bad, very bad smell.
Lucky you, you’ve stumbled across a weather appropriate day for you to wear your UGG boots! Here’s a tip for free: don’t wear them. If you don’t want to look like the back end of a pantomime horse in a pair of standard brown boots, then you’ll wind up looking like a clown or a Christmas decoration in a blinding and sickening pair like these golden lovelies instead. UGG boots are nothing more than a bad joke that has gone way too far – let’s put a stop to it!
