I am seriously torn at the moment. It’s cold. Neither Converse nor flats are keeping my footsies warm, no matter how thick my hosiery.
I have been on the hunt for warm winter boots since late July. Thanks to a childhood spent Irish-dancing my way across the country, I have been “blessed” with the sort of calves you usually only see on football players, making shopping for boots a soul destroying experience. Yet I know I could easily solve my cold feet problem if I caved and bought Uggs.
I can’t bring myself to do it, regardless of how warm/comfortable they are. I think they’re hideous and don’t think I could live with myself and/or justify handing over that much money for something I loathe. Then again, I don’t think I can live with a permanently runny nose.
How do you guys feel about Uggs? Are there Ugg-like equivalents that aren’t so hideous? What should I do?
