I put this in this forum because I'm looking for cities are regions of the country where Ugg boots are not popular and are not worn. Is there such a place?

I find these boots to be hideous and such poor taste.

Here in the Midwest, they are popular with suburban white female college students during the winter, and especially if said students are in a sorority.

I agree that they are ugly.

I agree, those things are hideous, at best. In Oklahoma and Texas both they are wildly popular with with high school and college girls. I see them summer and winter. Especially stupid looking with mini skirts or shorts when its 80 degrees outside.

This is America, if something is popular it is popular everywhere.

I don't see what the big deal is.



Then again, I don't generally rip apart other people's fashion choices for sport. I have better things to concern myself with.

I don't see them very often here in San Antonio. I thought that fad had peaked about 2 years ago.

Uggs are a heck of a lot better than the other "fashion choice" which seemingly won't die: baggy jeans hanging below the ass.

They're still popular here in New England, mostly with college girls cause when it started a few years ago we were all in high school but it's still really, really popular with high school girls and much younger too.

The most popular outfits I've seen em worn with for the last few semesters have been big baggy sweat pants, and a hoodie. Now it's switched towards hoodies and sweaters with leggings or other tight clothing, or with skirts and tights too. But it's more of a lazy thing to wear, especially for all the daddy's girls living at college too lazy to get dressed for class. You actually see em worn better in high schools. I don't have any myself, but that's not because I don't want em, I just don't want em that bad.

Anyway, I don't think there's anywhere in America people don't wear em. As bad as some people think they are, at least it's not Crocs lol. Oh, how bout those big rain boots that everyone wears even when it's not raining. Every girl here has some, me too lol, are those popular all over the country too?

Very popular with Orange County Surfers in the early 1990s, and they make perfect sense when coming out of the cold surf. Local-non surfers bought into the trend a few years later.

When I was Living in Saint Louis, between 2008 and this spring, I had to laugh since they were just coming in as the new trend -almost 20 years later.

Well, I will second that. I'm so glad the Crocs fad is gone. I see the rain boots in all the stores, but the only time I see anyone wearing them is when it's either raining or threatening rain.

While I do think the Ugg boots are extremely ugly, I am sure they are quite warm and comfortable when the weather actually warrants warm boots.
