OPINION COLUMN

My Love/Hate Relationship with Uggs

By Montgomery Harris

 

I know Uggs have a very bad rep. In many ways, I couldnít agree more. After living four years on Long Island, NY, and encountering all sorts of people, Uggs came to symbolize the suburban girl who orders very complicated drinks at Starbucks. The suburban girl who is also very wealthy and rude.

Now, however, it is hard to take a trip anywhere without coming across ten people sporting this trend: housewives tugging around toddlers in the grocery store, preteens with Hanna Montana tees at school, alternative city kids in knit stripped Uggs, and college preps pairing Uggs with argyles. In short, Uggs have become as pervasive as McDonaldís. And itís hard to say now just what ďtypeĒ of person is an Ugg person.

I donít own Uggs. And I used to say this proudly, as if my boot selection somehow made me superior to other people. It doesnít. If Iíve learned one thing from my younger sister, who is a shoe expert employed by DSW, itís this: Uggs are really, frickiní comfortable.

Fashion has a bad rep, too. Itís criticized as shallow and girly, as if girly were bad. This reputation has been encouraged by people who, quite frankly, have no taste. But I will agree with fashionís critics in one aspect only: that comfort is more important than trendy.

Uggs are both comfortable and trendy.

I may think that some versions are a bit of an eyesore. I may have misgivings from past traumatic experiences with Ugg owners. But I canít dismiss Uggs (or Fuggs) altogether. Perhaps now that Uggs have slipped from the domain of a select few and are available to us lowly masses they can garner a new reputation for their comfort and use-value.

I promise not to judge you for owning and wearing them. In fact, I may have warmed up to Uggs just a little. Still, I think Iíll stick with my Wellingtons.
