The ugly public side of Ugg Boots and Slippers

In their more traditional / nana-ish form

Ugg boots.

Slippers.

Fuzzy foot warming devices.

Call them what you will.

I love me some softly lined warming footwear.

I truly do. 

But....

WHAT UP WITH THEIR EMERGENCE INTO MAINSTREAM FASHION?


Adding sequins and rhinestones does not transform slippers into outdoors footwear. No.


I own a pair of awesome leopard print slippers.  The thing is, despite mine being leopard print and therefore beyond awesome…they don’t ever leave the house.

Not even to walk to the end of the driveway and check the mail.

This trend of wearing slippers out in public, it’s disturbing.  This comes from the latest Avon catalogue (shutup, they have THE BEST pore cleanser ever):

Seriously? Shiny gold slippers? WTF!?
Slippers fit for a queen alright - of the Drag variety.


People need to know that wearing them in public is one small shuffling step away from losing your shit.  We're talking forgetting to even wear your pants.  Suddenly, the entire bottom half of your body is adorned only by dodgy slippers or ugg boots.  In public.  While shopping.


Even crazy head-shaving Britters of ye olde days looks embarrassed to have been caught out grocery shopping in her lolly pink slippers. Sans pants.

So I’m saying it.

No.

Just, no.

Keep them at home.
