I don’t wear them, never have but I don’t really see many people wear them anymore besides maybe teenagers (but I also live in a warmer climate so that could be the reason). That being said, just because a trend has run its course doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still wear something if you love it!

No, I never have. I think they’re overpriced and I have purchased much more affordable brands that have lasted me a long time. 

Like PP, the only people I see wearing uggs are teenagers. I live in the midwest.

I live in Minneapolis. I own 2 pairs. One with heels that look nicer, and one typical flat ones, which I use for outdoor activities. I can’t survive winter without them.

I never had a pair until last year.  My mom actually bought them for me cause they were a great “deal” ($40).  I wear them to walk the dog or run quick errands.  I actually love how they feel and that I can kick off my slippers at home, stick my feet in those sockless and run out.  I never wear them to “go out” though.  They’ve never been my style.

I have never worn Uggz, but i was also pretty broke when they came out as popular lol. 

It gets too wet here I think. Its not just chilly, its wet and salty and chilly. Not a good mix for any shoe, let alone a furry one!

I’m in CO and I still wear them every winter including some moccasins I’ve decided are totally acceptable to wear in public even though they are a glorified house slipper. My Darling Husband hates them, but they are warm and comfortable so IDGAF. I wear short black ones mostly…nothing too crazy.

I’m in Australia and it’s in our blood here!

i wear them mainly around the house in winter and occasionally to a late-night movie when there aren’t going to be too many people out but not otherwise.

I have an old black pair that I LOVE – but I live in Denver and it gets pretty cold. Plus we camp quite a bit, and they’re perfect for the freezing cold temperatures up in the mountains. I’ve worn a hole in one of the toes and am going to get another pair this winter. 

IDGAF if other people like the way I look. In general, I don’t dress to please others. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Got mine over 10 years ago in high school when they were all the rage. I still wear them to walk my dog in the cold mornings.

I do in the winter months for the warmth and comfort.

I’m not going to lie to you, they are not cute. With that being said, I own 2 pairs and they feel like heaven to me, especially when I work on an outside dock at 4-7 am, so I will continue to wear them. 

I don’t mind seeing people wear them to run errands either. They are warm and can last a very long time if you take care of them.

I do hate the cheap looking ones that look misshapen and sloppy though.

I wear the knock-offs from Costco. I know they are ugly as hell, but my feet get too cold to wear anything else come Oct/Nov-Mar/Apr.

I have an old, paint splattered pair that I refuse to give up for those VERY cold, VERY miserable days, but I have to say – I have a pair of shearling lined birkenstock bostons which are equallty as ugly, and yet much more comfortable. So this might be the year that the uggs get the boot. Lol.
