Personally I dont care for those 'uggh' boots. Im more of a Docs style of boot person and they can go with pretty much anything. Style doesnt phase me, its what Im comfortable in that matters.

Docs never got the comfort vote from me, honestly, though I always liked the look. Too heavy.

I always wanted a pair of Docs but they make my feet look gigantic.

I looooove the way Docs look, though I don't own a pair. I just got a pair of boots from American Eagle that have a similar, but slightly less chunky, look. Can't wait to wear them.

Victoria Secret's mail catalog has Ugg's with heels.

Me Too- makes a very comfortable ballet leather flat. They are awesome- I love them. They are called the- Me Too Nini Leather Flat. Dsw.com sells them.

Is this thread only about Uggs-style boots or any boots?

(I'm gonna go with any style boots and post....)

I am loving Kate Middleton's style....and her love of boots has reignited my riding boots craving.

When I was younger, I likened Ugg-style boots to something worn by country bumpkins. I find them to be hideous and a reflection of the lowering of standards in this society concerning all manners of dress. Sure, they look comfortable, but IMO, they are not becoming of any female beyond pre-school years. Pre-school years are a time when girls look "cute" no matter what they wear. Ugg boots though are the ultimate in poor taste.

Just one man's opinion.

I like those moccasain type boots for just loafing around.
Though military footwear has changed over the years to those tan-coloured boots, I dont mind when someone tells my son 'your mom wears Army boots' because actually they are quite nice...and last forever!
