Ask the MB

Ask the MB
Q: As a responsible citizen, I want to know how I can do my part to put a stop to a blemish on our society. How can I help put a stop to the way-past-due trend of women wearing Ugg boots? It was one thing 3yrs ago, but now it's down-right objectionable. Don't we as patrons of MBness have an obligation to right the ladies in our lives of this horror?
—Mark


A: Right on, Mark. Ugg? Ugh! Unfortunately in some places (LA in particular) Uggs have crossed over into basics, which is bullshit given their meteoric rise. Anything going up that high, that fast needs to crash and burn, with no survivors. (See zubaz.)

Anyhow, it's probably a little extreme to throw paint or tomatoes at them like those PETA freaks toss at fur, so perhaps gently recommend they get with it and upgrade to anything apres ski from Tecnica, like this furry moon boot.
