    I love my Ugg boots! I got authentic ones for £75 off Ebay, so it pays to look around, as they're twice that on the official site! I find them really comfy though I'm not brave enough to wear them in rain, which is slightly unfortunate as I live in Wales!

    I don't hate them, but they're a little boring (and obviously very overpriced). I much prefer those Sugar boots, they're in lots of pretty colours, and designs so you don't look exactly the same as everyone else's. Neither are pretty good for winter, they're not waterproof. :p:

    I don't like the look of them and the fact that everyone else wears them. Plus theres no way i'd pay £200 for a pair of boots

    I would definitley buy real uggs if I could, but they are too overpriced. So I shall contend with fake ones for now. My fake ones are really comfortable & I've been wearing them loads at the moment. I'd love a pair of more stylish black boots [my fakes are black] but I think I would struggle to walk in them.

    I think they're ugly as hell, but really wouldn't mind wearing some good quality sheepskin boots for the next few months - it's freezing where I am.

    I have Authentic Uggs but I rarely wear them out because the vast majority of chavs seem to wear the ridiculous mock-up versions of them these days. I think Uggs were stylish before the cheap versions came into the shops because once chavs can get hold of something stylish, they instantly lower the vogue of the product.

    Um, a bit too bloody expensive?! Much rather stick to my 15 quid pair from M&S thanks.

    And to all those people saying how much they hate them, I was once like you. But then I tried a pair on...and they were so warm and cosy! So I bought some and felt ashamed. But warm and cosy and ashamed :yep:

    Hate them. Authentics as well as the cheap rip offs.

    I don't care how comfy they are - I just think they look ugly for some reason.

    I love them. Bought some "Just Sheepskin" ones last year from Faith, which were like £100, because they had lace up sides which I liked and didn't want generic ones. But they were rubbish and wouldn't stay up so I ended up just buying normal ones.

    I just bought some new ones, and I have flipping tree sap on them! It looks like tar. Any recs as to how I get this off?!

    it's because they're crap quality and the backs just collapse. real uggs have support round there so they don't collapse.
    I've seen loads of people in Ugg Australia ones walking on the insides too!

    I don't like them at all and I don't see the fascination with them being "real" or not. They look the same, just without a small label on the back!

    I've always wondered, don't they get really soggy when it rains? :confused:
