they make one's feet look like elephant hooves. just like uggs and so many other types of boots that have been trendy over the past couple of years. why oh why?

Where do you live in MA? I am in the northern part and don't have snow here today. The weather is great with plenty of sunshine! (Hope it won't change later)

Back to the topic...
LL Bean has many of this. But why wear that in LA?

i actually have these! i bought them for a ski trip last year. totally awesome for deep snow and they make me look fearsome ... i can't see them being appropriate for street wear though. they are damn heavy.

both boys and girls at my school have been wearing these hideous things for years now. i don't mind them really, but they're just not for me. wearing them in california though is just plain idiocy -- they are meant to be used on the north pole. in - 20 celcius

edit -- maybe i should snap some pictures. they are very popular combined with the too-tight-jeans-tucked-into-boots look.

Awful trend..... I think the olsen girl could wear a garbage bag dress and people would call it a trend.....

Enough of the celeb style craziness....... !

Wolf-ugly. Those look more un-feminine than UGGs

He he he...I used to borrow my mom's pair in the winter.

I don't think that they look so bad either. It's all part of this oversized footwear trend. With these, the Uggs, and those fur covered boots (esp the ones with the dangling puffs) the idea is that they make your legs look smaller. I wouldn't suggest this style for anyone packing a lot of extra pounds but on a fit/slim girl wearing a pair of skinny jeans these look 'dorable! The accentuate the thinness of her legs.

I'll wear mine with a puffy short parka with a fur trimmed hood! Yum! I don't care if it's cliche...it's still cute.

I wear these to shovel my snow. YES THATS RIGHT LADIES OF THE SUNSHINE STATES - how envious are you that the time has come for us snowbunnies to bring out our snow shovels. I have to say it is my least favourite part of winter. Anyhoo -

Aritzia is selling them (Artizia.com)
....and workman socks (which I have always owned too many of - sooo comfy for snowboarding). Make no mistake, this will become "trendy" in Toronto b/c w have the weather...but that doesn't make it right .

Word. Haha, how can these things ever be seen as a trend? They take forever to put on and when you take off the really hardcore ones the liners slide out and its a huge hassle. These things remind me of waking up and having to go out in the snow and having your eyelashes turn white and getting frostbite.

I didn't like them at all last year, but since I saw more and more sorel's in magazine, I'm starting to look them in a different way....
First they appeared in good editorials , then bloggers wore them, and now colette make a collaboration....
