Ugg, Uglier, Ugliest

What's worse than the fuzzy sheepskin boots that put the Ugg in ugly?
Ugg_women's_classic_tall_boot.jpgTry knockoff or even counterfeit Uggs.  According to British osteopaths, the cheap copies have still less support than the real thing and are causing wearers' arches to drop and their feet to splay, leading to potential foot, ankle, and hip problems over time. 

Is this warning a few seasons late, stylistically speaking, or are our otherwise fashion-forward friends across the pond still flocking to fleece? 

Either way, it's a tiny bit gratifying to see the haters of high heels and the champions of comfort at all costs caught flat-footed for a change.  Now, pass me my perilous platform pumps, please.
