You and I have had a few good years together. I enjoyed your Classic Short Boots first as a college student, and then as a lazy blogger who doesn’t always get completely dressed every day. I know that people hate you, but I’ve tried to offer meek defenses when they talked smack and you weren’t around to respond. Your shoes are utilitarian and comfortable, and the simple ones really aren’t that ugly in muted tones like grey or black.
But now you’ve seen fit to create the UGG Australia Fringe Cardy Wool Boots, and I don’t think that I can take your side any longer. This footwear monstrosity can only be described as blasphemous against both god and fashion, and also maybe against my eyeballs. They kind of hurt, and I think these boots are to blame. I’ll send you the doctor bill.
The Cardy boots always seemed like kind of a bad idea in and of themselves (slushy winter weather + wool footwear = fail), but now that you’ve chosen to add fringe to the mix approximately two season after the trend had any sort of peak, I just can’t stomach our relationship anymore. I’m done with you, UGG Australia. Right after I buy a new pair of grey Classic Shorts to get me through the next winter or two. Buy through Saks for $140.
