They are ugly. They look like something a caveman killed and turned it into boots. Uggs are not even meant for fashion. They look so unfeminine also. Not to mention they cause problems for your back. Why would anybody wear something that looks ugly, and is uncofomfortable, and can lead to back problems?
Because different people think that different things are cute. Why are there guys that like to wear their pants halfway down their a**? And Uggs cause back problem because of the lack of arch support, how many other shoes have the same problem? skater shoes have no arch neither do flats and flip flops. That article on yahoo also said "she is wearing her Uggs once more after being fitted with custom padding to support her arches. She is also currently pain free." So some girls wear Uggs because THEY think its cute and find them warm and comfortable so what's wrong with that?
Normally ugly yes, got to agree. My friends find them comfertable and warm and are actually under the illustion that their Uggs are cool, or worse, their Fuggs (fake Uggs) since a lot of girls won't drop the $250 for real ones. However, some of the special order ones are prettty awesome. Like I have a pair of just under the knee black leather ones that look like the standard army issue boots of the 90's.
they are warm, comfy and did you ever think how bad heels are for your back? no they aren't the cutest shoes but they don't deserve this much hate! I think they are perfectly fine on a cold winter day every now and then. but I do admit some people wear them every day all year and I think in the summer they are dumb.
