When purchasing my first pair of Uggs as a ninth grader, I could hardly contain my excitement. Never mind the fact that I lived in Texas where there was a slight chill about a month every year. Never mind that this was also a time when I only wore what my peers were wearing, including but not limited to clunky Doc Martens, Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirts and parting my hair in the middle even though I clearly had a dominant side part! Despite all of these extremely unattractive fads that I partook in, the Ugg boot made sense to me.They were damn cozy, like walking around on a fluffy cloud all day. Oh, but I knew. I knew they were hideous. Because let’s face it, they are.
I am prepared for the backlash coming my way with these statements because girls.love.their.Uggs. It is my last semester of college, and still I see an array of girls trudging to class in their fluffy-as-cloud boots. Trekking my thirty-minute journey to my own class, I found myself cursing the girl in front of me who was wearing Uggs, envying her comfort. Even though I knew my shoes were fashionable, they didn’t keep my warm when I needed them to do just that.
So here’s my delimma: I think Uggs are very, very ugly. But I long for their comfort! If anyone has recommendations as to another kind of boot/shoe that is not quite as ugly but every bit as comfortable, please let me know! Help me through my sore-and-wishing-they-were-warm-and-cozy feet woes.
Just because I think it’s fun, here are some of the Ugg boots that I personally find to be hideous. Enjoy!
