I'm saddened and ashamed of the human race that this kind of style is so popular. However, I could imagine that if you were in a cold place, with snow and ice and coldness, that it might behoove you to wear warm, fake-fur boots, and that it might actually be kind of practical to tuck your pants into the boots to keep them dry and warm.

That said, this is the Gulf Coast. The temperature today was in the 50's; it was cloudy, but dry. I'm a cold-natured girl, but I can handle 50 degree weather okay.

Therefore, there is NO EXCUSE TO WEAR KNEE-HIGH FAUX-FUR BOOTS WITH YOUR JEANS TUCKED IN. It just looks fuckin' uggly.

Of course, it's even worse when your boots are too tight for the jeans to go in, so you have ugly faux-shearling mid-calf boots with rolled-up jeans on top.

This is a trend that, a few years ago I thought would die out quickly. I'm saddened to know it has not. Sometimes I hate America.

Hi, I found your blog because of medstudentitis, and am enjoying reading it. I hate neuro too!
That style is huge here too, but it is REALLY cold in Canada right now, so the boots have a purpose. Tucking in the pants doesn't help anything though, because then snow gets inside your boots really easily. Not fun, let me tell you.

Oh, I didn't think about that! So the style is more worthless than I initially thought--awesome.

And what's worse than your cool $200 Uggs covered in muddy slush from the 6th blizzard in 6 weeks in Colorado? Nothing!

I'm so old my first pair of ugs were $50 from the sporting good store in 1985. Holy smokes, dust me off.

Heh, you are old school!
