Fast forward to 2014. My choice for "why award?" The original UGG boots. From day one, I didn't get it, and still don't. I do realize that they are worn primarily by the pre-teen (in my area, women of a "certain age" where them as well) and teen set, and that there will always be a market for them. It is refreshing though, to see that they've recently added a nice collection of leather boots which are more stylish.
Scroll down through the list, I'm sure they'll bring back memories in one way or another.
|The kitten (jelly) flip flop|
|Ah yes, a Steve Madden "classic"|
|This one I actually don't remember.|
|The ole Candies clogs|
|Heelys-I'll give these a pass, since they were for the kiddos.|
|These Manolo Blahnik Timberland boots were worn by the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé back in the day, but that still didn't help.|
|Birkenstock clogs are alive and well, and STILL doing good business!|
|The Moon Boot......noooooooooo!|
|Mudd's platform loafer|
|Mukluks-another that I don't get. They're probably super warm and comfortable, but............|
|Rocket Dog's platform thong|
|Last and certainly not least, UGGS. It doesn't help that there are so many inexpensive knockoffs.|
