User Topic: Uggs or other boots...fashion help please!

H asked me what I want for Christmas and asked for pics of ideas I might like. I told him I thought I might like Uggs. My puppy ate my fake ones (I wouldn't let him buy me real ones before). I like wearing them on comfy days when it's cold and they are easy to slip on when I walk the dog.

But...are they "out" now? He showed me pics of a million uggs now trying to get me to show him what I like. He even showed me a cool pair of motorcycle boots...but we don't have a motor cycle...I call those donor cycles (sorry, they kind of scare me). He's too good to me and would buy me anything I wanted. Maybe that's my problem? I have no idea.

I do love boots, so I guess what I want to know is will I be a fashion victim getting Uggs now or should I look at other boots? Sometimes the whole idea of fashion stresses me out.

I just bought two pair of Ugg-like boots, so I'm sure they're out of style I resisted until I moved north, and now I'm thrilled with them, so I don't care.

Get cowboy boots--really good ones. They never go out of style

I just wore Uggs on Sunday. It was freezing and they're so comfy and warm, I don't care if they're out of style.

Just beware---the bottoms of Uggs are very smooth and you slide like crazy on snow and ice.

I recently bought a pair of wedge-heeled booties. I got them at the Bass outlet. Very cute and comfortable. Cute enough to dress up a little, but comfortable enough for every day wear.

I'm a big fan of Frye boots. They are a definite splurge, but they will also last forever. They are the "real deal" and have to be broken in…but once broken in, they fit like a glove, can be worn in any weather, are beautiful (!!!) and I get compliments every time I wear them. Classic, never go out of style. I wear with jeans, skirts, dresses, leggings….

IMO ONLY, I think Uggs are adorable on the younger people, but I feel too old at 43 (and I am very fashion forward/conscious) to pull them off. I would maybe wear around the house, but I stick to classic instead of trendy when I leave the house. *totally just me*

I second the Frye suggestion. I have the engineer boots and love them. They look great with jeans or dressed up. Would definitely purchase a second pair. They are expensive but will last you a lifetime.

Personally I am not an Ugg fan. I think they are Uggly

I love boots!

Okay, Oprah Mag just featured her Favourite Things as she does every Christmas and the new Uggs are in there and they are AMAZING (higher then the old version). I see the regular "old" Uggs everywhere. I just don't think they are going away anytime soon.

I do like cool factor of Frye's and one day I will have a pair!

Living in Canada we need weather-proof boots. I found a pair of black nylon ones that are warm with good treds. The thing is....a couple pairs, completely different styles ain't gonna hurt and will last for years and years.

Why don't YOU go through In Style or any fashion mag and cut out some pics for H!

I don't usually boycott products, but I will never purchase UGGS.

Has anyone not seen the videos of the way they treat the sheep used to line their products? It is horrific.

Google it and see, I couldn't watch the video. I have been looking for an article to debunk the story, but have been unable to find one.

I was going to suggest Sorel boots, but Sad beat me to it.

I have my original pair from 25 years ago....Mine are soo "out", they have come back "in"! I still love them, though I probably should upgrade to a more fashionable pair! Still comfy and warm! I saw them in a Jcrew catalogue not too long ago and just about fell over!

Frye boots are fabulous, but I think of those as my going out and about boots, not necessarily in the same category for slipping on to walk the dog or run to the grocery store.

I resisted the Uggs trend for quite awhile. I don't feel they are particularly attractive. I feel the same way about those Croc things. I needed a new pair of cold weather boots. (Frye's really don't cut it in ice and 5 feet deep snow banks struggling to get to your vehicle!) I had sold my ancient white (sexy) Sorel boots at a garage sale when I moved to CA. Wish I had those back. Didn't think I would ever live in the Great White North again. *sigh*

Anyhoo, gave into the Uggs, however got a Costco knockoff, they are sheepskin, too. (Sorry, karma!) They are unbelievable. Love them, work in the most frigid weather here, and are very light. I still don't think they are attractive. I have seen some new Uggs that I feel are more attractive than the original. I have noticed this season I haven't seen as many Uggs. More the knee high leather boots. Seems strappy boots are "in" here. But, we haven't had a real snow storm yet. Just some sprinklings of snow here and there. I imagine the Uggs and Sorel's will be pulled out when we get our first storms.

Boots, boots, boots are in now. Just about any kind of boot is in. I feel if you want to wear "motorcycle boots" that would be fine. They wear those here in the winter, too, even though no one is riding motorcycles in 30 degree below 0 weather!

I'm no fashion expert, but ... I am an animal advocate. Uggs practice tremendously cruel methods in obtaining the sheepskin/wool for their products. Please, I encourage everyone, to research a product before purchase - especially one that may involve the skin of an animal.

There are always synthetic alternatives that work just as well, in my opinion. We've evolved beyond the point of needing animal skin to survive.

The Frye engineer boots are really cute!

I had the knock off Australian ugg like boots from Sam's Club. I loved them but we don't get to wear cold weather boots here for long. Sorel boots wouldn't be very practical here (deep south). It's 38 F right now.

g
ot a Costco knockoff, they are sheepskin,

Yes these are great! $39 you can't beat them since they are made as well (minus the fancy logo) as the originals!

Uggs are fabulous. I have had a pair or more since 1986!! I'm wearing my tall black ones right now even.

And they don't skin the sheep alive-- that is a lie perpetuated by a lack of research.

I have tried to verify the animal abuse stories, too. Without luck. Apparently, the sheepskin used is a by-product of the meat industry. Of course, that industry isn't without it's share of horror stories but the death of the sheep isn't just a vanity issue.

that is a lie perpetuated by a lack of research

And probably also because they were so popular. Just watch, as something becomes hugely popular - to the extent that it gets mentioned in tv and radio programs outside the relevant field and in jokes; and even people like me, who are clueless about trends, have heard of it.

Once this happens, there is almost always some negative story that emerges. Something to provide those who have not bought into the trend to mock or trash those who do and - far more importantly - to give ammunition to those with a vested interested in seeing the popularity of the product dwindle.

Sometimes, there is a genuine problem specific to that company. But often it's a story that's untrue, or greatly exaggerated. When it's a sourcing problem, it's often one that's common to most companies, but the trendsetter is the one that's targeted. But by the time the untruths, etc. become common knowledge, the damage has been done and the item is less popular.


I believe that many of the rumors are started by those very people who have the vested interest in hitting the sales of whatever it is. Sometimes for idealistic, but more frequently for financial reasons. And sometimes by those who unethically use the idealists to further their financial interests.

I think "follow the money" is a good life principle nowadays.

As I said, I'm clueless about fashion. So I always click on the "What shall I buy/wear?" threads here, because I invariably learn a LOT from them. And I'm genuinely grateful to the experts here who have unknowingly been educating me in what/what not to wear, or to wear together!

He decided he was tired of waiting for me to decide so he bought me the exact pair of Uggs from Oprahs favorite things for our Anniversary (Dec. 27th) lol, he gave them to me tonight because, in the crazy place we live, it might get too warm to wear them by then. Love them! And if at 45 I'm too old for them I don't care. I'm emotionally immature, right?

My b-day is Dec 1st and he bought me an awesome zoom lens and gave it to me last week (he's not into suspense).

It's supposed to drop into the 20s tonight or tomorrow I think. I'm loving my Uggs and my fireplace.
