    I say YES! I just bought some this past fall, and I haven’t regretted it. They’re so warm and comfortable, I’ve practically lived in them this winter.

    I’m not a big fan of uggs, but I LOVE Bear Paw.  Very comfortable.

    They’ve really expanded their styles…  I had a pair (the utlimate short, actually) for 5+ years that are worn out (the bottom is almost bare) so I bought a new pair this week. 

    The style is called Jillian and I LOVE them!!

    It really depends where you live. If you live anywhere cold, it probably also snows, so it’s not worth it to buy Uggs. I bought a pair of NorthFace boots a couple years ago, and still wear them daily in the winter. They’re warm and waterproof, and I love the way they look.

    I LOVE my uggs even though I think they’re kind of ugly… I have 2 pairs and I think they’re really worth it.. so warm and comfy and easy to slip on and walk out the door or wear around the house

    I don’t really like the typical UGGs, since they’re not made for Canadian winters (they were invented for surfers on the beach… not for snow and slush). They look horrible after getting wet and salt on them and everything (My sister went through 2 pairs of UGGs because they kept getting destroyed by our harsh winters) but I got a pair of waterproof UGGs and I LOVE them!! They are so comfortable, so cute and so warm! I’ve worn them all winter, they still look great and my feet have been warm, cozy and dry even in -25 degree Celsius weather. They also have pretty good traction, which the regular UGGs definitely don’t have. Plus the pair I have actually has arch support.

    I say, if you are getting UGGs to be warm in the snow, get the waterproof ones! The regular ones that lack traction and proper waterproofing are not worth the $300 if you live somewhere with snowy winters. That $300 is better spent on boots that are actually meant for the weather you plan to wear them in.

    These are the ones I got, in the “Otter” color.

    @DeathByDesign: What pair of uggs cost $300? The most I’ve seen from the Uggs site is $230.

    I live in the heart of Wisconsin. It’s always three degrees or less in the winter. I think they are well worth it.

    @Miss Steinbeck: In Canada, they cost $300 ($270 + tax is what we paid for my pair at Town Shoes). I thought of getting them off the site I just linked to, but with custom fees and shipping and everything, it’d be about the same price anyway, and this way I was able to walk out of the store with them

    ETA: My SO just informed me that they were actually $300 before taxes (he was the one who actually paid for them as a gift, so he probably remembers better than I do lol). I think he’s right, since on the Town Shoes site, they’re listed for $298. Don’t ask me why they’re so expensive in Canada (especially since our dollar is pretty even with the US dollar now)… what a rip off. I still love my boots though!

    get Emus instead.  Just as comfy and usually cost less.

    I have a pare of Bearpaw’s and a pare of Emu’s. I prefer my bearpaw’s over my emu’s only because the internal fabric is sheep’s wool I believe and with putting my feet in and out it tends to clump and end up in the bottom of my boot compared to the bearpaw’s with have a different fabric and tends to stay in tact. Neither boots have much art support but I put a supportive insert in the bottom of them and they keep my feetsies very warm. I loooove my boots and I wear them all winter long.

    I say no. Personally, I’m not a fan of wearing animal skin/carcass. JMO.

    I’ve never bought the actual UGG’s because of the cost but I’ve bought the Emu one’s and a pair from Soft Moc (not sure if that’s just a Canadian store or not). I love love love them and wear them almost daily in the winter. I wouldnt wear them in the rain but I wear them all the time in the snow and slush and have never had a problem with them getting wet because I make sure I spray the protector spray on them a lot. The only problem is salt stains on them, but thats why I buy the cheaper pairs 🙂

    They are the most cozy comfy pair of shoes Ive ever owned and are perfect for going to school in the winter and I actually do wear them to work. I work in a retail store where everyone wears jeans and hoodies, so Im not breaking any professionalism rules there and I am thrilled to be able to be so comfy while working 🙂
