Ugg!

I took this shot with my camphone at the Gelson’s this afternoon. Let me explain something, it was 95 degrees in LA today. This lady had a *very* short skirt and a tank top on. She also had on Uggs. In addition to being some of the ugliest shoes ever created, unless you are skiing or live in Alaska they are also retardedly impractical. I don’t give a crap how comfortable they are, in southern california, in 95 degree weather, NO ONE needs to be wearing fur lined boots. In case you needed yet another indicator as to if someone is a total tool, these are it. I know they have been mentioned here before but I was kind of hoping that trend was over. Guess not.

  1. Yes!!!
    I totally agree. My wife and I were just discussing how incredibly lame this new fashion craze is. Mini skirts and fur boots. and we wonder why people make fun of californians…

  2. Umm, didn’t I make you promise to mention that this was not me? I would just so DIE if someone thought I had those boots. I mean, gag me with a spoon!

  3. Seriously. What’s the big deal. So someone decides to wear something different from you. Deal with it.

    I never understood how people can take what other folks wear so personally. Maybe it’s just a thing no guy understands?

  4. Proof that Uggs are already over?

    I overheard this bit of dialogue Sunday afternoon at a Brentwood park, from a once-edgy, Nicholsonesque young actor who hasn’t been seen in a while after a cooling-out period that followed a couple brushes with the Law:

    ACTOR (to his recalcitrant 4-YEAR-OLD):
    Come on, son, get your Uggs.

    4-YEAR-OLD: Dad, I wanna go barefoot!

    ACTOR (evenly):
    I know, but it’s time to go and we have to get in the car, so get your Uggs on.

    4-YEAR-OLD: Are we going over to (unnamed friend’s) house?

    ACTOR (the very picture of patience now):
    Yes, but you need to get your Uggs on, so let’s go …
    (etc. etc.)

  5. Oh Pappy, I’m the one wearing something different than everyone else seeing as LA has been over-run by these things. Not a statement of individuality that’s for sure.

  6. hehe…

    one, I had never heard of these things till the original post…. now it seems like I can’t read a web-page without noticing SOME reference to ’em.

    and… right, ya’ll are commenting (quite emotionally… whcih is the main issue I have) about people who are wearing things that ARE ‘hip.’ To me, this is the same as someone berating me because I happen to like a popular band. I always hated that attitude.

    And yes, I DO see the irony of disliking the trait of a person disliking a trait… :)

    Ah well.

  7. Well, I support everyone’s freedom to dress like a complete lunatic. But the issue here is folks wearing fur-lined boots in 90-degree heat. That’s got to be some kind of health hazard.

    In the spirit of Ugg(h) boots, I propose the launch of a new, yet retro-flavored trend: Nylon moon boots, circa 1983. Ah, memories…

  8. yeah i have a comment who the fuck are you to sit there and critize someone cause of what there wearing and take a picture of there leg’s and there shoe’s and you use the word (retardedly) you might wanna watch what you say as far as word’s someone could have a handicap ummm ohhh like ME for example and you could offend someone and who the hell care’s who wear’s what i wear pajama’s in public whoooooo is that bad who give’s a shit cause i sure in the hell dont maybe that women that made that comment (retardedly) should be gaged with a spoon not the other people.

  9. “yeah i have a comment who the fuck are you to sit there and critize someone”

    I’m Sean Bonner, that’s what I do. And last I checked it was still legal in the US to speak your mind, regardless of who agrees or not. By the way it’s c-r-i-t-i-c-i-z-e

    “cause of what there wearing and take a picture of there leg’s and there shoe’s”

    Again, this is the US and in public you can take pictures of anything you want. By the way, it’s t-h-e-i-r not t-h-e-r-e and there’s no apostrophe in shoes.

    “and you use the word (retardedly)”

    Yeah, I thought that was a good one too.

    “you might wanna watch what you say as far as word’s”

    Hmm.. no. This is my site, my post, my opinion so I don’t have to watch anything. Except your assault on the english language. No apostrophe in “words” either.

    “someone could have a handicap ummm ohhh like ME for example”

    Did I say “Oh man, that is totally handicapped!” ? No.

    “and you could offend someone”

    Again, I’m Sean Bonner, that’s what I do.

    “and who the hell care’s who wear’s what i wear pajama’s in public whoooooo is that bad who give’s a shit”

    I wasn’t talking about something someone was doing different, I was talking about something that TONS of people are doing and is stupid. No apostrophe in “pajamas”

    “cause i sure in the hell dont”

    This is pretty pissed of ranting post for someone who doesn’t care. Oh, and remember all those extra apostrophes? You needed on there in “don’t”

    “maybe that women that made that comment (retardedly) should be gaged with a spoon not the other people.”

    I’m sorry… What the hell are you talking about?

  10. I love the topics that get people so riled up. Aren’t we in a war? Isn’t our President lying to us? Isn’t the FCC creating all these new indecency laws that threaten freedom of speech? We’re having fun here talking about a silly little craze. My dear friend Chris, you should chill out. Who cares what we think about people’s shoes? Who cares what you think? Oh well, who cares! Oh, and my “gag me with a spoon” was sarcastic. Geesh.

  11. Of all of the oddball fashion trends this one had me the most mystified, in particular that the beautiful people of LA would wear such things.

    I used to live in Seattle ,and did work all over the state. One thing that was a constant up there was the fashion mistake I nicknamed the “white trash booties.”

    I’d be in line at the DMV, a County records building, or some other similar agency and inevitably there’d be some horribly bleached, smokes way too much, drinks way too much woman wearing the skimpy outfits that would make Paris Hilton blush and with a figure that doesn’t do well in said outfit. Inevitably theyd have their daisy dukes and a pair of white trash booties on. Always.

    When I left Seattle I thought I’d left them behind, but one day at a very nice restaurant in LA, I saw a very attractive young woman wearing her White Trash– oops UGGs, and I was just amazed. The Booties have arrived.

  12. Damn Cameron Diaz. She brought the horrible things back from Australia one day and now they are the most popular, overpriced, rediculous looking trend i have ever seen. And not to mention that they weren’t even expensive before she made them popular. If my wife bought a pair, i would burn them.
