I never thought they looked good...too big and bulky
Great for kids and gardeners.

I could never wear them because my feet are really narrow. I think they look cute on kids.

The problem where I live is that in the summer your feet sweat too much in those things. They are only good for a really short wear.

Thank goodness; those shoes are so ugly! Surely there must be a way to design a shoe with the same purpose in mind without visually assaulting passers-by.

Thank Goodness, I always found them to be repulsive footwear, though I was told they were extremely comfortable.

Then again I also loathe Ugg boots which to me make you look like Sasquatch . I am constantly amazed how many people will wear Ugg in summer.... Maybe perfect for apres-ski but the beach ?!?

Thank God. Those things are HORRIBLE. I used to sell them, unfortunately. They're terrible for your feet, they've got no support... I particularly cringed when people would buy them for toddlers/infants with growing feet! The plastic is noxious also. When we'd get in a big shipment we'd have to rotate which employee was in the back sorting them-- people would get sick from the concentrated fumes pretty quick.
