    The boots will be fine if they were bad they would not sell them

    Of course if the long-term term plan is for your daughter to become eligible for benefits, then I understand that the wearing of Ugg type boots which will lead to your daughter becoming unable to walk, then your quest for the most supportive footwear is essential - you have to dampen down her physical activity!

    Compulsary wear on the Jeremy Kyle show I believe
    Its not that we have more patience as we grow older, its just that we're too tired to care about all the pointless drama

    Ugg style boots can get very sweaty and smelly. The other kids will start calling her 'Stinky Susan' if you're not careful.

    Of course the sad thing about this post is that, if on the off-chance that it is true (and Faith is the Queen of Sheba ), then we have a woman who is more bothered about giving her child what she wants rather than taking the adult line about ensuring that the child's health is cared for.

    Sadly this seems to be the case in many of today's parenting stances.

    It's also sad (if not downright unbelievable) that an allegedly 'best school in the area' would allow fake UGGs as school footwear.
    Mind if anyone wants a pair, in black, real ones from Oz , size 4, let me know cos I think they are bloody horrible and I only keep them as they were a gift

    They're lovely & cosy and as they're natural material they don't make your feet sweat & smell (unlike the fake ones).

    This is a completely false thread. Did none of you read the exact same thread when (it) was wanting to buy black plimsolls for (it's) son because they were black, therefore fit school criteria.

    But (it) decided to buy female black plimsolls from - (let me guess) - Primark!!!

    I never believed that post to be real and nor do I this one.
