Do you think that wearing ugg boots out in public is odd. A lot seem to do it. I find it very sloppy and wouldnt wear them other than around the house. Each to their own opinion.

Would if I could. So much more comfy

I used to wear them to uni when I was a 20 something undergrad. And until recently (they wore out) to the shop for groceries. Sloppy? Maybe. Probably. I just don’t actually care...

It was a popular thing in the north of England a while back

Not for me, I dress for comfort not looks but I find them too hot to wear so not for me

I have no problem with it.

I would love it if more people dressed for comfort instead of trying to meet some arbitrary standard of neat and correct.

Besides, I love uggs.  Wore them to school all through winter in high school.  I'd wear them to work if I thought I could get away with it.

To the letterbox, yes or in the car doing a pick up where I don't have to get out, also yes. To work, no, unlike a new team member who did recently but thankfully just once (I think they got told). To clarify mine are the little ankle ones like you might get at Mother's Day team member's were full on knee length ones and looked very bogan in the work environment

I'm also not a fan of board shorts as clothes

If was a once a definite no-no, then about 10 years back it was a weird trend. Since then it’s been “ok” but I still wouldn’t do it. It’s right next to wearing tracksuit pants out with a shirt with food spilled all down it.

Only 6 posts to bogan.  Sweet.

I wouldn’t do it, but mostly because I need more supportive shoes, and a little bit because I don’t feel good wearing them out and about. It’s not the done thing around me, except for the uni students - they often wear them to uni.

I have few standards in this regard but I’d never wear uggs out of the house and never wear leggings as pants haha!

It was bloody cold in the winter mornings for my 8am lecture lol. I kept thongs in the car if I had to be there past mid morning as they eventually got sweltering.

Not since winter at uni. In 1985.

Weird trend started by Americans, with their Chinese made UGG boots.

Too hot

No arch support

Sheepskin stretches too much so my feet slip and slide around inside them.

Uggs are not for me even inside the house.

#15 FearsomeFeralFreak

Yep. Absolutely. I've been seen out in uggs many times.
No where beyond supermarket, school, local coffee shop but I love them.
I would never, ever, ever be seen in tracksuits though. I would feel I have given up on life. I guess we all have our standards.

I dont like them at all. I just think they look terrible, so i wouldnt wear them.

On the other hand its finally a trend keeping young girls warm, so im totally on board with that.

I have things that I wouldn’t personally wear in public. However, I do not care what others choose to wear.

I wear mine to rock climbing at least once a week. Because I don't wear socks in my rock climbing shoes and I can't wear my rock climbing shoes to rock climbing and in summer I'd wear thongs, but it's too freaking cold, I wear ugg boots.

I also used to wear them to the martial arts gym I went to. Because they came off straight away. That's just about the only time I'll wear them, but I find them pretty comfortable, so I wish it was practical for me to wear them elsewhere.

A crime against humanity to wear ugg boots in public other than going to the letter box or washing line.

Winter is my least favourite time and one of the main reasons is patients who think it's acceptable to wear ugg boots to their appointment which they've literally lived in for years and smell of toe jam, smoke and gereral filth. Even better when their complaint is an infected ingrown toenail or festering ulcer.

So rotten. That's what shoes and socks are for.

I wear them to get to Pilates- knee high ones. And then to the grocery shops afterwards. Otherwise I’d need to wear socks, shoes and leg warmers (and then take them all off for the class) as if my feet and calves get cold, I’ll cramp during the class.

I wear mine to pick up kids from activities, and occasionally a late night supermarket shop. Mine are 'nice' uggies though (I can hear you all cringe lol), but they are! They're not saggy or dirty, they're more like a boot with sheepskin.

#23 Daffy2016

I used to care deeply about this and passionately believed they were totally bogan and people should never wear them.

Then I got old and mellowed out. You do you, as long as you’re happy I couldn’t give a toss.

I don’t wear my uggs out.

I wear my $30 Aldi snow boots which are almost uggs with proper soles.

Not ugg boots as such as I don't wear sheepskin, but I wear the fake ones whenever and wherever I want.

I suffer horrific chilblains/circulation issues and weight train 5 says a week at 5am. The gyms freezing, I wear my fuggs to train in winter when my toes are riddled. I just kick them off to deadlift and squat.

I used to also wear them between climbs at the climbing gym. Most of us did.

I also wear legwarmers (over my leggings as pants), beanies and fingerless gloves in public. My #1 priority is keeping warm.
