They do look comfortable though. But now I'm always thinking how disgusting their feet must feel in them though because my sister bought my niece a pair for Christmas and they were too small for her. As I was there, and my feet were a little smaller than my niece's, they offered them to me.
I don't like the way they look, but they told me they were really comfortable and I love a comfortable shoe, so I tried them on. I said, 'They're a little tight and I know if I wear socks, they'll be too tight.'
They both said, in unison- 'You don't wear socks with Uggs.'
I was like, 'What! You don't wear SOCKS?!' Because they have this fur stuff inside and all I could picture was that getting all sweaty and disgusting and matted down and then continually putting your bare feet back into those boots. Very unappealing- to me anyway.
But everyone else seems to really like them.
The other trend I noticed at Christmas time is that teenage girls are going out to the mall, etc...not only in sweatpants and Uggs - but pajamas and slippers! They were wearing slippers outside in a foot of SNOW!
I was laughing and laughing at how silly that was until my daughter, having seen this new fashion trend with me, decided to try to go to the airport and sit on the plane from New York to London in her pajamas and slippers. I said, 'No - put some clothes and shoes on.'
She said, 'But it's an overnight flight- we'll be sleeping anyway.'
I said, 'I'm not going out in public with you in your pajamas and slippers. Put some clothes on.'
So she did - but jeez these trends are catching.
*I once saw a girl with sweatpants that said 'Juicy Bitch' across the butt. That's another fashion trend that made me helpless with laughter.
