Help Fix My Cold Feet

By luther_bendross - 20 April 2009 33

Well it’s nearly Anzac Day and I’ve been faithfully informed that this historic milestone also marks the first day of the year that I can wear my wooly sheepskin boots down to Woolies without being labelled a sook (well, ‘sook’ wasn’t the word used, but I couldn’t find the word he used in the Oxford, and Roget’s didn’t stock a decent synonym either).  But alas, my footy woollen friends have seen better days.

Last year there was a fantastic place on Tennant St in Fysho where my better half picked up a cut-to-size pair of uggies for a decent price (<<$100), however this place has disappeared and my tiled floors aren’t getting any warmer.

Where in Canberra (and/or surrounds) can I pick up a good pair of ugg boots???  I don’t care for the brand per se, I just want to know where the best uggies are.  Has the dude from Tennant St moved elsewhere?  Should I go to Goulburn and kick a merino and hope it sticks? 

Canberra, my pedal extremities thank you.

What’s Your opinion?

        The main problem with ugg boots is that
        they aren’t very well suited to breakdancing.

  How is that a problem?

Isn’t it obvious?

i think they’re too hot too. my feet roast in them. i am more a fan of the grandpa slippers.

I was just thinking the other day, sitting at the servo waiting for hubby to fill up, i remember as a child (esp in victoria) they used to sell uggies at servos, every colour of the rainbow.

but so not for wearing in public. hello booner!

My wife bought me pair of genuine sheepskin Ugg’s from Qbn for my birthday a few months ago. Now its getting cooler at night I’m really enjoying wearing them. It’s like putting your feet into a couple of fresh kittens. Mmmmm, all warm and snug…

Unless you have unusually large feet any of the department stores can sell you a good pair at a reasonable price. Got my other half a pair of genuine wool ones from bigW for approx $40 couple of years ago. got mine off a discount table at the end of winter for $10. No signs that they are wearing out yet.

I think ugg boots are actually too warm.

I don’t understand… you bought ugg boots last year, and they’ve seen better days?

You’ve proven that you don’t understand by not reading the post.

I don’t understand… you bought ugg boots last year, and they’ve seen better days? What did you do? Store them in the oil sump of your Kenworth for the summer?

I’ve had the same pair of $25 Big W ugg boots for the last 10 years or so, and they’re yet to see their best day!

Since you will be busy checking out where Woolies have moved things to this week and won’t be looking at your own feet, wear what you like.

Agree wholeheartedly. Uggboots are just the cold weather version of thongs and should never be worn in public. They make the wearer look like a shambling troglodyte cross bred with a mad sheep.

I have been told there’s someone who sells uggies at Kingston Bus Depot Markets – but that was about 12 months ago, so I’m not sure if they still do.

Hall markets have a great stall full of moccasins in all colours. I’m not sure if they do full ugh boots too.
