these aren't so UGGly.

ugg boots are warm as shit, but they also look like shit on your feet. actually, these look like you wrapped a loaf of bread around your cankles. these are pretty stylin.

ANYWAY, in an attempt to have warm feet without looking like a moron, i splurged on these shearling lined boots by matt bernson last year. they are pretty freaking awesome and i thought you should know. matt bernson is always a little bit tomboy and i love it.

ps: want to offend some people? check it.

Those boots are pretty stylin'! I have a pair of fake Uggs that only come out for camping trips when I don't want to put my hiking shoes back on. They are ugly beyond comprehension but oh-so-warm!

Good splurge! I love those boots so much, and they will keep you warm, so totally worth it!
Much love,
B

You're funny :-)
I have never understood Uggs. Why would anyone want those things on their feet? The warmth excuse is lame, girls wear them in the summer with denim skirts (which is gross in it's own special way)!
These boots, however, I like.

Those are some killer boots.

The loaf of bread = perfect description of Uggs. HA!

In regards to your "p.s." : My husband sometimes wears Crocs around the house. With black business socks. I KNOW! It's a good thing I love him.

nicole-
hilarious. you could always accidentally toss them out. woops.

Katy said...

i like those boots! cute! ;-) and I literally laughed so hard at the loaf of bread comment. I have always hated UGGS with a fiery passion (a bit too much even maybe).

A loaf of bread on your cankles. Ha! I am always on the lookout for shoes that are stylin' but comfy. I am digging these for sure.

Just read the offensive list. I love you and Ed and that is that.

this is funny. it took me a while to get on the uggs train, but i live in slc, so uggs proved to be a life saver on campus. they are pretty ugly, though.

this is also hilarious because i used to like crocs. i didn't actually wear them. i just wanted to. then i heard you could eat them if you were ever caught wearing them in the wilderness, and i liked them ever more. then someone bought me a pair of off-brand orthopedic crocs and i about died. how could anyone wear those, or the real thing? they are detestable, and that's all there is to it. there is really no excuse for anyone wearing crocs. and when they try to design them all cute? no.

rebecca said...

rachel-
ok, i didn't know you could eat crocs. i wonder if you could also eat the crocs converted to wannabe ballet flats?

Krystal said...

um, those are marvelous. and I lol'd about the loaf of bread, SO TRUE!!

NicoleD said...

Now instead of looking at Ugg wearers in disgust, I'll smile a little thinking of how they look like bread wrapped around feet. SO true.

You can eat crocs? Whoa.

I love these, and UGG alternatives in general. Although I do have a pair of furry apres ski boots that make me smile with how ridiculous they are.

skim said...

The most stylish shit kickers I've seen thus far. Awesome.

Mo Pie, Please said...

Whoa, these are GORGEOUS. I want a pair BAD!

Mo Pie, Please said...

PS, I'm not a fan of UGGS and I wish the trend would end already.

rebecca said...

skim-
shit kickers? good one.

jen said...

I never quite understood the Ugg trend. Those boots above though, I get!

I just re-read all the comments on that "don't" post. "the aesthetic of a fart" had me crying with laughter.

I happen to hate bedazzled pockets on jeans.

also, yes it's hot in arizona, but it's also hot in NYC. Very hot. There are other kinds of sandals that can relieve you from hot feet AND look pretty. Also, flip flops are terrible for arch support. High heels are better for your feet than flip flops.

skim said...

One more thing. I abhor flip flops, especially when I see people wearing them around the city. It reminds me of my college dorm days. Shower shoes are not street shoes y'all!

ps. I would hate to see the BM a pair of Crocs would produce. Ick.

rebecca said...

skim-
crocs would come out the other end looking the same- shitty. HEY-O!

skim said...

Omg, hilarious.
