Ughs? Nope. Uggs.
So I finally bought myself a pair of Ugg boots.
Listen to me. I'm no dummy. Uggs are hideous. If aliens saw them they'd be totally fucking confused because Ugg boots don't feature anything that corresponds to generally accepted human ideas of beauty, or even okay-looking things. They're bad.
Oddly, only the hottest people in the world wear Uggs. And they wear them all the time. I used to think (and still kind of do) that Uggs look like weird hooves and shortify people and make the thinnest girls look hobbit-y. But then they started appearing on everyone on my show. The girls would ooh and ahh about how toasty their feet were.
"But they make your feet totally sweaty, right?" I said.
"Not all all." they responded. "Mindy, you really should get a pair."
But they cost $160! And Uggs, like designer bags, never ever go on sale. And I HATE paying retail for anything. So I still didn't buy any. Then winter came around. My call times were 6AM, in the freezing dark cold. My Ed Hardy sneakers kept my heels warm but my toes were still freezing. Socks did nothing, only kept the coldness in.
Finally I tried on a pair at Nordstrom and my whole life was changed, you guys. Uggs brag they "they feature lavish twin-faced sheepskin for the utmost comfort" and it's all true. They are the most comfortable, awesome, snuggliest shoes ever. My toes are never cold, my arches are supported, and somehow my feet are never sweaty. Uggs are a fucking miracle.
I got the "tall" ones because I wanted to tuck my new skinny jeans into them. On the recommendation of the lovely Rashida Jones, I also got my Uggs in black, not the typical tan or sand colors, which are super hoove-y.
Buy some for your mothers, grandmothers, sisters and girlfriends. Or buy me another pair - I like the pink ones a lot too, cuz I'm gay.
Price: $120 (for the short), $160 (for the tall ones)
