Ugg Boots Pretending to Be Socks: Argyle knitted boots by Ugg Australia

Well, we’ve seen it all now. We thought the boots-pretending-to-be-shoes  (and socks) situation was as bad as it was ever going to get, but once Ugg enter the equation, you know you’re up against a fashion criminal to be reckoned with. Ugg do, of course, have many prior convictions, but even they had yet to experiment with the “look, it’s a sock, whoops, no, it’s a boot!” thing, so these Argyle knitted boots came as a bit of a shock to us when we uncovered them this morning. These aren’t actually pretending to be shoes, of course, so you may well feel we should  let them off on a technicality, but those Argyle legs are definitely reminiscent of thick, winter socks.

Are these better or worse than Ugg’s usual offerings, though? If you find them better by far, they’re £135 at My-Wardrobe.

    these look better than the traditional Uggs, but I still wouldn’t wear them.

    I think they’re on a par with Ugg’s other knitted offerings. I so wish they’d just go away…

    I actually like these…because I like strange shoes/boots.

    Now, I’m all for fighting the good fight, but I’m just about ready to give up on whining about Uggs. They’re absolutely everywhere, like rogue frogs in Australia.

    On a semi-unrelated note, I saw a girl yesterday who was wearing a pair of Uggs with nylon running shorts and black leggings. YUCK.

    Holy whale knickers, they’re even _worse_ than traditional Uggs – I didn’t think that was possible!

    Really great for wearing with your bathrobe. All day.

    I can just imagine how these would look. The knitted bit would fit close to the leg, looks like, and BAM, big old wide foot bit. I prefer to NOT look like I have flippers, thanks much.

    I have a pair of SLIPPER similar to that but I never wear them outside of my home.
