Ugg Goes Metallic

As long as I can remember, I've been firmly against Uggs. Too trendy, too ugly, too expensive. (I happily paid a much more modest sum on eBay for one awesome pair of vintage fur-lined moonboots that served me well for a few years in New York's unkinder months.) And yet something about one (and just one) of the new metallic shades of the world's most ugsome boot is kind of calling me. Uggs in soft gold -- is this maybe, just maybe, okay?



Ugg Classic Short boot in soft gold, $150.

So what do you think: Does the soft shimmer impart a certain, dare I say it, sophistication to the odious Ugg, or is a pig in gold lip gloss still a pig? Do let me know, gentle readers.

It's never okay!

That's right, Brianna. STILL NO, Mary-Kate. No no no Uggs.

.................

well I will say that the metallic gold does add a touch of sophistication, but still just say no

First of all, LOL.
Second of all, I think the gold is kind of fun. I find Uggs to be a necessary fashion evil. They're ugly but they're so lusciously warm in the winter, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them!

Oh dear god, NO. Uggs are still UG-LY.

They aren't that bad! I agree with the other commenter- once you have them you never want to take them off! I'd opt for basic black tho. A pig in gold lip gloss cracks me up!
