How UGG Boots Can Ruin Any Man’s Style

I’m usually pretty fair when it comes to men’s style: I accept and understand many styles. I don’t care if you’re a hip hopper or a rocker, I respect your style.

The hip-hop and rocker avatars have many things every guy out there should appreciate. That’s because such outfits tell a story and have a history behind them.

But some things just don’t belong in a man’s wardrobe. Some clothing outfits, apart from standing out in a weird way, don’t communicate anything.

Here’s a few examples:

  • t-shirts with big company logos on them (Any Google fans in here? Nah, just kidding)
  • men’s skirts (are turning into women THAT fast?)
  • crocs (unless you’re a “little man” of age 8 and below)
  • shutter shades glasses
  • and, of course…. UGG boots

What are UGG boots anyway?

In short, UGG boots are women’s boots “borrowed” by men. They can make a hot babe look stunning as fast as they can make and average man look like he’s going whale hunting. In fact, I think that’s what Ben Affleck is just about to do (not sure why he needs the tie for?)

They are usually made of sheepskin and have rubber soles (some are made of kangaroo skin).

Where are they coming from?

It’s not clear whether UGG boots first appeared in Australia or New Zeeland – nobody knows for sure.

Why I don’t like them

The reason I hat them is they cannot make a fashion statement. They’re big, chunky and unbalance the entire outfit. Yes, they can attract attention… But is this the kind of attention you want?

There are plenty of clothing items that men borrowed from women. For instance, scarves (scarves were actually first worn by men in Ancient Rome but I’m talking about scarves as a fashion accessory).

Unlike UGG boots, scarves can look fantastic on most guys. They help match the outfits better and, if the contrast is good, they draw the eye towards the face. But my advice about UGG boots…

…don’t buy them!
