Ugg’s New Boots Remind Social Media Users of Candy Corn

Uggs are back in a big way, with social media users comparing them to candy corn. The Ugg chestnut “classic ultra high” boots, which are currently on sale for $419.99 (originally $600) are now going viral and being made fun of for their stripes. Memes are popping up on humor sites, with some comparing the less-than-attractive boots to fishing waders. One commenter said she’s convinced the boots are a publicity stunt, with a popular influencer saying, “I need a word with Ugg corporate asap.” The strange part of the boots is that they don’t zip up and down to get them on and off; instead, they zip around. One of the best comments posted on social media regarding the odd boots was, “They are giving me a HAZMAT suit!”
