    Does anyone here have these? I am looking into getting a pair for me (I am originally from FL and this NY weather is super cold for my toes :( ) and was wondering where the best priced place to order would be.

    Ugg boots are an Australian brand-and a bit expensive here-but there are lots of really good copies for about 1/2 the price-see if you have a Famous Footwear chain where you are-or check on e-bay or Craig's List-also, many sporting goods stores have them-but they might be a bit more expensive than the discount stores-by the way, Famous Footwear usually have discount coupons available. I saw some at CostCo last week and they were really nice-and not expensive!

    I got mine last year from Zappos.com. I love the boots. They are so warm and comfy. Don't wear socks with them - your feet will get much too hot. Zappos doesn't discount, so you may be able to find them elsewhere for less, but their customer service is the BEST, bar none. FYI - they carry all brands of shoes, men, women and children alike and all sizes. I
    have a wide foot and they have a great selection of wide and extra wide widths if anyone is interested. But, I got off the subject - sorry. The Uggs wear well and I think you would be very happy with them. Of course, as someone else said, you can find similar boots elsewhere and I'm sure they are just as good. Oh - just be aware - they are not waterproof - so can't wear in rain or snow.

    Also, if you aren't too picky on color - try Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Ross's. My neice found a purly lavender pair two years ago at a discount store for $25. An yes they were really UGGs just apparently a color that didnt sell all that well. Good luck with the boot hunt!

    They are wonderful. I just got them from my local shoe store, Tradehome. Both by husband and I like them. Very comfortable.

    Yes I do have them, and they are my favorite boot ever! We get very cold winters in Indiana, and when I wear them, I can;t even feel the cold on my feet.

    Looks for ones with extra thick sheepskin on the inside, and buy the waterproofing kit that comes with them.

    I don't know how close you are to Roosevelt Field Mall on the Island, but you can find them there.

    I love to see the chicks here running around in those fuzzy boots, Daisy Dukes and a Hoody. Go figure.

    I love my Uggs! I have worn them for years. I always have cold feet and the Uggs work great. Just remember that they are suppose to fit snug. The boots need to mold around your feet and they will stretch. Happy hunting.

    I have one pair and my 24 year old has many pair. They last for years. Well worth the expense. She wants a new pair for Christmas. They are sold in this area in Dillard's and are in the Plow and Hearth catalogue.

    If you are by a mall, try Lord and Taylor when they have a coupon, sometimes you can use it on the Uggs

    UGGs are the cat's meow. Don't wear socks, your feet will stay warmer without them. My husband and I wore ours while hiking around Pinecrest Lake in the snow. Pinecrest is about 5,000 feet and the trail was six miles long. Our UGGs were wet long before we got back to our camp but our feet were still toasty warm. I love them, they are worth every cent they cost. We keep pairs at home, at the cabin(which is above Pinecrest Lake at 5800 Feet) and a pair in the 5th wheel. You will love them. And you can wash them with sheepskin soap!! I've done them in the bathtub and then in the washer on handwash.

    But according to the kids (from my 16 year old niece) FUgg boots (fake Ugg boots) an be spotted a mile away and no one would be caught dead wearing them. Jeesh! Kids!! In my day it was "Ladybug" dresses and "Capezios! "
