    I know a lot of people hate them, but I *love* mine.  They are wonderfully warm and comfortable and I think worth every penny I spent on them  I don’t care if they are going out of style.  I wear mine with pride the same way I wear birkenstocks all summer.  🙂

    I have the Bailey Buttons in black.

    I have 3 pairs of Uggs and I absolutely love them. I don’t wear mine because they’re in style, I wear them because I like them. 

    While they are expensive, if you take care of them they will last a long time. My first pair I totally trashed which is a bummer but my other pairs I take care of and they look brand new. 

    ETA: These are my favs…

    no matter how compfy they are they will always be hideous.  The hideous is not worth the comfort.

    @Atalanta: I have to disagree. I don’t find them hideous at all. 

    @heathaah: They sell an Ugg cleaner. Pretty much anywhere that you can buy them from will sell the cleaner.

    I LOVE my Uggs (I have the pair that CaitMarae posted, but in tan). I don’t think they’re hideous, and they are so warm and so comfortable.

    I don’t care what people think of them, they keep my toes toasty warm! The regular UGGs shouldn’t really be worn out in snow/slush/rain, or it will quickly ruin them. You can buy Ugg protector cream (they should sell it wherever you buy Uggs), which will help to protect them, but I avoid wearing them in nasty weather. They do have some all-weather ones (I have the Adorndack Tall boots) which are *amazing*. It was -12 the other morning and my feet/legs could not have been warmer! They are also weatherproof, which is key.

    Be careful where you buy them, Uggs and Coach bags are the top counterfeited products. The official Uggs website has a list of authorized retailers.

    Yeah I’m not a fan of Uggs, and where I live, I don’t really see a need for them.  I see girls wearing them around here with their mini skirts and short shorts… they’re like walking oxymorons!  Tongue out

    If you love them buy them.  I hear they’re awesome comfortable and warm.  The only reason why I didn’t buy any was that I was told they are not waterproof so wearing them during the winter in the Northeast would have ruin them.  And if they’re so warm I probably wouldn’t wear them if there’s no snow on the ground.

    I agree

    I don’t think they are particularly cute (except the ones CaitMarae posted – I love the sweater texture). My coworker wears them and swears by how comfy/warm they are, though. The only downside I see is that they can’t be worn when it is wet out, and they don’t have very good traction. I live in Boston, and although it’s definitely cold enough for them here, I couldn’t wear them in really cold weather because there is too much snow/slush everywhere and you’d break your neck falling on the ice in them, if the slush didn’t ruin them first.

    I had a pair and got caught in a snowstorm (back when I lived in the Midwest). 

    They were then ruined.

    A warm pair of boots that you can only wear when it’s no longer snowy and wet outside just seems like a silly idea to me, but I will tell you they were really comfortable.

    If you’re going to wear them, I would suggest maybe having a spare pair of shoes in your office/bag just in case it rains or snows.

    I’m at college in Michigan, and I know a lot of people who have Uggs, but they do get ruined if you wear them out into the slush and snow, which is pretty much the weather here from November to March.  I bought Sorels because they’re a little more durable and they have a waterproof upper.  If you’re going to be walking through a lot of snow, rain or the nasty mix in between, I would recommend Sorels.
