A Stand Against "Ugg" Boots


Ashley and I are recruiting staff in the Midwest this week. Today we are at Purdue University and the weather has taken a turn towards winter. Last week we were enjoying 70 degree weather wearing shorts and a tee shirt. With the cold weather comes the cold weather clothing and a particular item I dread...Ugg boots. Ashley thinks she needs a pair but I refuse to budge.

Gentleman, there comes a time in every man's life when he must take a stand against injustice in this world. And for me, the time is now! Ugg boots are not cool. In fact, 10 years ago, when the crazy things came out every woman agreed with me. In fact they were scoffed at by the most hip and fashionable. And then something ridiculous happened, some celebrity looking for some free media coverage strut down Sunset Blvd in Hollywood and BOOM, they are next big thing.

Well, I am here to issue a reality check. Just because everybody has a pair doesn't make them look cool. And the old excuse of "they are so warm" doesn't cut it. If you are looking for warmth a pair of Alpaca Mucklucks from Alaska can't be outdone, nuff said.



Stand your ground men.

  1. Shay, I stand with Ashley! UGGS are cool - in a very weird way, but we like them. I have impostor UGGS...soft, warm, but not UGGS. I think Ashley would look great in UGGS. Plus, I happen to know that you have an anniversary and Christmas coming up. Two great opportunities to give.

  2. However you think they may look, I gotta go with Ashley on this one. I love Ugg boots. At first I was totally against them, then I tried them on. It's like wearing cozy slippers around all day, and it's publicly acceptable. It's pretty awesome. It's not just that "they are so warm", they are the perfect amount of warm, and cozy. Plus, I don't think mucklucks are quite as fashionable. Maybe close.
    I think Ashley needs some Uggs!

  3. Even though you think this is a crazy idea...I love my boots! I wear them all the time. Although I don't have UGG's (they are quite expensive)I have a pair of 30 dollor boots from payless :) that are just as good if not better!

  5. Sorry. But i have to go with Ashley. I have the exact ones she is wanting and i wear them all the time. I had to buy them myself and it was worth all the money! Your feet don't get to hot and they are the best things ever invented. I don't see why they are ugly they are just really simple looking. You should suprise her and buy her some for Christmas it would be the ultimate gift! lol.

  6. Honestly, anyone wearing Uggs should be immediatly arrested by the Fashion Police, because they went 'out' like 4 years ago.
    But here at the U of Bama Ugg boots are a staple peice in every sorority girls wardrobe! We rock them w/ leggings and our Nike tempo running shorts. (it looks completly rediculos but w/e we're cute Greeks)
    & personally i love Mucklucks. i own two pairs & Paris Hilton was recently spotted wearing a pair in Canada lol

  7. Shay i completely agree with you Uggs are one of the most illogical fashion trends EVER why does anyone even need them? the cheapest ugg i can find is $120 (just a quick 'net search) and i cant believe anyone would spend that much money on a boot! as guys, we need to stop this thing.

  9. Right on, Shay! More power to you for standing up. I believe Ugg boots represent every last thing women have, but don't need. They look up to the celebrities to show them how to be themselves, and refuse to see our reasoning. Maybe one day, the Ugg will be no more.. but we can only wait. >:D

  10. Have you ever seen what wrestling shoes look like? If a shoe is functional, who cares what it looks like... you're a man... man up quit crying about the shoes. If I have a husband w/ alligator 1/2 boots, you could probably live happily w/ a wife w/ Ugg boots. AND when as a husband were you affectionately attracted to Ashley for her shoes?

  11. Plus... she could be wearing the knee high camo rubber boots- trust me... they make Uggs look very lovely and feminine.
