I've also don't know any guys that like them on women. But if they have bought them as presents for their girlfriends, it's only because they were told to get them.

Just about the only way I would be caught dead is in a pair of Uggs.

Pray to god it never comes down to me having to choose between being seen in public in Uggs or saving the world from nuclear oblivion, because things would get much colder much faster.

Coldwine,

I am shocked! Why the fear (near hostility, really) of Uggs? I just put mine on with a pair of jeans and stood in the mirror. I looked like any normal human being. I'm not wearing them out to a party or anything, but I do wear them regularly as a replacement for slippers. They keep my feet warm and cozy. What other shoes do you have that do that? Please do not tell me you slip on a pair a stilettos when you get out of bed in the morning.

I never got why they were in , in the first place !! They look pretty awful to me. They remind me of the 1980s Moonboots people used to wear after skiing. They are so chunky and shapeless, I haven't seen them look good on anyone yet, including super-models.

Uggs are like Dansko clogs. At first you say, "No way I'm wearing those things." But you keep hearing everybody rave about how comfy they are, so you take another look and decide, "They're not that bad." So you buy a pair and soon you're not only wearing them, but you think they look pretty darned cute. Soon you're so enamored you buy them as gifts for your mother and friends who say, "No way I'm wearing those things."

If you're on my Christmas list, guess what you're getting.

As a matter of fact, I am wearing my black Dansko clogs right now. I put them on after I took my Uggs off. I also own two pairs of Berkenstocks, thank you very much.

I wear all these shoes because they are practical and comfortable. I can dress up when I want to but for everyday walking and running around and living, I wear these kinds of shoes...

I wear socks and sneakers around my house and yard.

Hah, no, I think I've already made it clear that I have very strict rules concerning when to wear stilettos (although tonight I did wear 4 inch stilettos to a nice event. But it was past 8!)

I just cannot stand the look of Uggs. I don't really judge other people for wearing them, but I myself would never buy them.

I honestly don't wear shoes for comfort. I have shoes that I work out in (my torn up sneakers), my heel/pump collection, and of course my Doc Martin collection. I think my steel-toed Docs, or "ass kickers" as they are sometimes called, are the closest thing I have to comfort shoes.

I have classic heels and Mary Jane's and also my Choo's/Manolo's/etc. I've worn them for so long it actually hurts more to try and wear flat shoes, Uggs would just about kill me

(... Do slippers count?)

Doc Martins? Did you say Doc Martins? Up until now, I thought you were a cool chic. But no, not anymore. Doc Martins are soooo uncool. I haven't even seen a pair since like last century or something. Please, bury those things....I'll come over and hold a service with you.

I use them when I play paintball, actually. They're great for romping through the forest.

Also, I see Docs everywhere. I'm fond of my boots I refuse to wear boots that have heels.
