Too old? 43 year old Sarah Jessica Parker wears Uggs to walk her son to school
A few years ago my newborn son was given a pair of soft Ugg bootees that wrapped his feet in warm sheepskin bliss. A friend tells me that wearing the grown up version feels similarly soothing ‘Like leaving the house with your slippers on.’
How can anyone resist? They are so incredibly laid back, it’s really not surprising that they were thought up by an Australian surfer. They are meant to be worn barefoot, post wipeout, so the sheepskin keeps feet snug. And because sheepskin is naturally thermostatic, Uggs will kept your feet at the right temperature whether it’s freezing cold or boiling hot.
I was convinced that they would be a fashion flash in the pan, but five years on from the initial craze, Uggs are still loved by celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker. British sales have increased by more than 140 per cent over the past year. But this isn’t all about practicality.
Uggs aren’t waterproof, but they are weirdly fashion proof. The 170 classic long Ugg is still flying out of stores, and the London Westfield and Covent Garden Ugg outlets often have to operate an one in one out door policy. My question is: should I be one of them? Can I get away with them at the age of 37?
They are actually incredibly challenging to wear. With their naive, round toes, thick seams and structure free shape, they look caveman basic. They drop a plumb line from calf to heel, offering no definition and no leg lengthening options. They also impose a gait that wanders between clod hopping and shuffling.
The teenage girls I see slouching up and down my High Street wear theirs with skinny jeans or opaque tights. They may look cool,
but they don’t look good. If they don’t do any favours for the youthful legs of a teen, how is an older woman supposed to carry them off?
