I'm from NY and only high school girls seem to wear them here. Some college girls do too, but I think once they're in college, they go for a more professional look. Who cares though? If you like them and are comfortable in them and can look good in them, they're in.

I think it's an interesting question, in that it shows how different fashion can be in different parts of my own country, and the world.

Like I posted above, UGGS have been a staple in Southern California beach towns for 20 years. And rockytibby is right, people wear them with dresses, and shorts, and leggings. They are the winter equivalent of flip flops here - but that doesn't mean they're only worn in winter - you see them year-round.

But about five years ago someone I know who is very fashionable, went to a little town in Canada for a rock concert - and she wore her UGGS, thinking it would be just fine. But the locals tore her apart for wearing UGGS to a concert. It was shocking to me to see how appalled they were - but to them it was completely wrong to wear UGGS to a show - and they let her have it. Kind of cracked me up, because she'd be fine at a concert in Southern California - but she didn't pass the fashion police inspection in a tiny town up north! But fashion can be very different in different areas...

No offense, but I put UGGS and Crocs in the same category - Ugly, ubiquitous shoes meant for pre-teen girls. They just look really bad on adults IMO. The halls of my daughter's elementary school are filled with 10 year olds wearing UGGS and Crocs - one sign that they are not fashionable for adults. I'm not even sure if the highschoolers still wear them in my town. They are also very wide and unattractive on the foot. Ugh! So many better choices out there for grown women! If you want a comparable comfy, furry, affordable boot, try Oscar boots.

Hilarious! Around here, I think my 10 year old daughter and her friends can pull it off with their Abercrombie skinny sparkly jeans tucked into their UGGS, along with their purple sequined shirts and neon crackle nail polish. That is a perfectly suitable UGGS look IMO!

I consider my Uggs to be slippers, not shoes. They're ugly and have zero arch support so they're not suitable for wearing as shoes.

Great slippers though!

I'm not a fan of them, but I did notice a large number of women wearing them in Paris. I was shocked.

I have the clogs and they are very easy to put on when leaving the house. I wear my Totes boots if it is snowing but they have to be pulled on and zipped. I like the convenience if the Ugg clogs.

I have short Uggs, given as a gift, but couldn't afford the tall ones. But when they were onsale I got two pairs of tall Bearpaw boots, which are also, lined with wool, and sewn. Since I got the first pair haven't worn anything else. Mine are medium brown and black. I've tried lots of supposedly warm boots, but when the floor gets so cold like mine is, they are useless. A pair sits by the bed and when I get up the feet go in them and they are the last thing I take off at night.

They look pretty much identical to Uggs. Would someone explain why this type of boot is *ugly*??? They're simple and functional and if you really demand 'fashion' maybe they don't qualify, but practicality and comfort do not make clothes or shoes 'ugly'.

No. They are ugly, they are expensive, and they are not waterproof. You can find warm and comfortable in something less hideous.
Exactly
