Winter Weather Brings the UGG® Out of Hiding

Is it really true? If the paparazzi photos are right, UGG® boots have returned on the feet of celebrities and fashionistas nationwide.

I thought the craze had finally died down and that we were done being subjected to velour sweatpants jammed into these shapeless potato sacks. But never say never. As the weather gets colder, even celebs with chauffeurs want a way to keep their toes toasty as they sashay along the city's sidewalks. And despite some of the obvious ugliness of the boot, comfort and warmth will always reign supreme when the mercury starts to dip below forty degrees.

So it's not so much why UGG®s have returned that surprises me, but rather who has brought them out of hiding. I might expect it from Jessica Simpson, but Gwyneth? And it doesn’t stop there. Chic women have been spotted around town pairing otherwise fabulous ensembles with an old pair of UGG®s. (And don't even get me started on those new Snowjoggers, but at least they do come in some pretty fly colors). 

So why do the UGG®s keep popping up again and again? What is it about them that’s so enticing to people that can obviously afford any boots their little feeties desire? Look, I understand the appeal, but with so many other more fashionable UGG® styles available, I'm not sure why the classic Shorty still gets so much love.

Here are a few others Ms. Paltrow and company might want to consider instead:

The UGG® Rina ($225) boasts the same comfy sheepskin lining with a much more feminine exterior.

The UGG® Torrey ($185) features a cool lace-up system that looks great and keeps feet firmly planted in their cozy, casual home. 

Oprah loves the Classic Crochet boot ($120), and so do we.
