It depends what you wear them with. I wear mine with my sweat pants. i really can't see how they can look bad. They are just plain, simple, basic shoes...

Uggs

Crocs

Uggs are sheepskin boots (but much more.) I first saw them in the 70s.
They've been around for awhile.

For those who don't know, Crocs are wide plastic shoes (but much more.) I remember when they first originated in Colorado a few years ago, and they were mostly just in bright, garish colors. Now they are ubiquitous. I could be wrong, but it looks to me like they don't offer a lot of support for the foot, though I do appreciate their wide toebox.

From another board of mostly guys in their 20's and 30's, their current thoughts on Uggs and Crocs, I thought that you'd all like to know:

Fashion stuff that you can't stand....

-Ugg boots with a miniskirt. I see this all the time...even in Seattle when it's 40 degrees out. Seeing that makes as much sense as seeing someone in the artic with a full thermal snowsuit but wearing flip-flops.

- Uggs... No matter what they are worn with, I hate them...

Uggs in general but, Uggs with sweatpants is the worst thing ever and that's pretty much the uniform for college girls in the winter.

i usually only see hot chicks wear uggs so i'm ok with them

2. Crocs. Who ****ing cares if they are comfortable or not, see Maddox.

- crocs. ****ing most retarded thing i've seen in the past 10 years.

-uggs - wtf/ I thought this **** died in a burning fire with those fugly crocs already??

3. Uggs. doesn't matter how ****ing dirty they are, how they make every chick look like a pigeon-toed moron, or how many years out of style they are... they're sportin' em.

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I drove by a girl wearing black UGG boots. He exclaimed "how 2002!!" and I asked him what he meant. He told me that they are passe...
LOL! Your boyfriend must be very into fashion. I've never heard a man call a piece of clothing/shoes "passe" in my life, let alone know what specific year something was "in".

It's been snowing off and on all week and in the low 20's and a day has not gone by that I haven't worn my uggs because they are comfy,warm,easy to care for with gross sand and salt from the snow and has some tread to keep from slipping on the soles. Fashion,Smashin. I won't be a slave to fashion, especially in New England in the winter!

I am hooked on mine, regardless. I don't wear them unless it's really cold and snowy though.

Where do you buy them? I want a pair! I've heard the name of Ugg's but didn't know what they were. How much do they cost?
