Uggs Out? Discuss.

Just a few weeks ago, I was checking out and stumbled over a Lifestyle entry which brazenly and directly declared that Uggs boots were no longer to be seen on the warm feet of the “in crowd” worldwide. Huffington Post

They were…gasp…out! As in, not cool. Outré. Dorky. Dumb. No longer desirable. About to show up at outlet malls in stores with “Must Go” signs handing across the door in places like Abilene!

Shudder.

Dear lord, is this true? Can these comfortable, cozy Australian exports actually be on their way to exile at the resale shop?

Have the folks declaring them “out” ever slipped a chilly but well pedicured foot into the sheepskin lining then felt the gentle caress Uggs are known for?

Is the name not a subtle way to say ‘hug’ or, gasp…is the name reflective of what some say upon spying them on the gams of a fashionista?

Sigh…keeping up with the latest is sometimes very disheartening. However, I’m going to make a prediction here.

Despite the Huff Post article, and despite the fact Uggs are not waterproof (don’t go there with the ‘boots not waterproof’ thing), Neiman Marcus just days ago emailed a “latest trends” to me, and on the main page was a picture of a certain Uggs.

These were all decorated like a cowboy boot. VERY stylish. Rest easy, ladies. I’ve never known Neimans to steer our tooties in the wrong direction.

So, what do you think? Are Uggs toes up or down?
