No lie, when Ugg boots were finding their way onto celebrities and eventually becoming the fashion look at Any Mall, USA in the early 00s, I was NOT trying to have what looked like the bottom of elephant feet on my own feet. No ma’am. Also, people were wearing them with jean shorts and I was just SO confused. So I avoided them like the plague until one time in like 2005 or so, it was like the coldest winter EVER (shout-out to Sister Souljah) in NYC and no matter how many layers of socks I put on, my feet were just frozen. A coworker of mine who was around my age told me I needed to try Uggs because they would keep my feet warm. So I begrudgingly waltzed into a Soho store that sold the goods and tried them on. Ya’ll, as soon as those Ugg boots touched my feet I could hear angels singing, birds were suddenly chirping, my sinuses felt like they cleared, my vision was even sharper, and most importantly, my feet were WARM AF.
