DrCrazyCat :  If it’s actually cold enough where you are go for it. I never had a pair because it’s California and too hot and I’m allergic to wool. Otherwise I’d likely have a pair.

I’ve never worn them; they look too much like slippers. Girls on my college campus used to wear them all winter, and they’d all be salt stained and wet looking after the first snow. I prefer Sorel boots for when it gets cold and snowy.

I love my UGGs. I have 4: the classics in tan, high heels, slippers and a pair of more solid knee high ones. I am 36 and I am not dreaming of abandoning them. I wear them in winter as long as it’s not raining. I wear them everywhere as long as I feel like it. The tan pair also goes really good with my dolce and gabana bag. For the city look. I live in Germany right now and I still see people wearing them. I don’t know what some mean by “not wearing them out”? Going out here means going to a club and I wouldn’t wear them there either. Mostly because you wouldn’t get admitted anyways. For the most parts you can’t get in wearing flats so…. long live the IGG boot!

I have three pairs of ugg brand footwear.  One is a clog style slipper and they are on my feet pretty much constantly at home, they keep my feet warm & comfy.  

Then I have a pair of winter boots that don’t look like the iconic ugg boot, you wouldn’t know that they are ugg brand. They are solid heavy duty outdoor winter boots, I could do virtually any winter activity in them for long periods of time & stay dry/warm.  

Then I have more of a true “ugg” style, but the sweater knit slouchy one in black.  I might wear those to run a quick errand, to a casual Sunday family dinner at a relative’s house, a spontaneous late night movie, etc.  they are easy to just slip on sockless, and go.  No laces, they aren’t too bulky, etc.  I do look a bit like a dickhead in them but that’s alright.

All & all in my experience Ugg makes a great product.

I just bought my first pair. I never knew how comfy they were, but after trying them once, I had to have them on my feet. I’m not super fashionable, and these have sort of a cute slouchy top (not the normal knee high ones), so I’m perfectly happy in them – and I found a good sale!

I’m Northern Californian and they are still a fall and winter fashion staple here. I own four pairs in different colors and styles, and I know plenty of women aged 30-60 who own even more! 

The West Coast does tend to be more casual than other parts of the USA. I wore Uggs, ponté leggings or skinny color jeans, solid tees and open cardigans or chunky sweaters to work pretty much all winter long and always got compliments. 

That so wouldn’t fly on the East Coast!

I have a pair that are like 10 years old. I walked to many a college class in them. They are so beat up and faded but I hate to spend a ton of money on another pair of ugly boots that Darling Husband hates, but I gave in and finally am getting a new pair for Christmas this year. Some girls I work with that are my age still wear them. But honestly, I don’t care, they are so comfy and warm, I don’t care if I look like a freak from 2004 lol

DrCrazyCat :  Late to reply here, but I totally still wear mine! And I’m probably too ‘old’ (31) but they’re so cozy. I live in Vancouver Canada, so when it’s not pouring rain but cold out I throw mine on with jeans or leggings!

I do and I love them. They’re certainly not ‘fashionable’ in my opinion but rather practical in cold New England winters.

I have maybe 10 pairs 😳 I ask for a pair for Christmas every year! I’m a little obsessed and I don’t care if they’re ugly.

Souzie :  OMG I had to look up the over the knee Bailey button ones you spoke of in your post but they are sold out everywhere! 😭 I was hoping for a black pair for the holidays… Sigh…

I love them. They have been a favorite of mine for years. I am 29 now and will still wear them in the winter. I think they can be a bit pricey but they definitely last for years if you take care of them.

Cheekie0077 :  I’m sorry frown

They were from a few seasons ago.  Try searching for the “Devandra”.  They look exactly like the OTK Baileys except the back closes with buckles instead of buttons.
