The Uggly truth about my fave boots?
Look, we know what we look like, my daughter and I, shuffling around in shapeless glorified slippers. But when you hit your shoes at a dead run, it helps if they're pull-on simple. And, hey, Miley wears 'em, so they gotta be cool.
Call it caveman chic.
But this morning, I am jolted awake by a news report that - shock! - Ugg boots may be wrecking the skeletel systems of thousands of tween girls (I'm assuming I'm already a lost cause). Seems they just don't get enough support from Uggs and Ugg knock-offs...and those tween bones are still plastic, still firming up. Too much Ugg usage may equal uggly problems down the line. Read the story from the London Telegraph here.
I especially like Ugg's no-bull response: uh, yes. These are comfort - not performance! - boots. Maybe we will alternate them with "good" shoes. The kind you can't hit at a dead run.Google+
