You also fooled me with the etymology. Ugly and Ugh! not uggs came to mind. Uggs was a totally new word for me. Thanks!

Thanks for the reminder: realized, only after I had logged out, that I had forgtten to include "UGH." From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Ugg boots are a style of sheepskin boot, with wool as the inner lining and a tanned outer surface worn by both men and women. Ugg boots often have a synthetic sole, although this is not universal. Uggs have been identified as a fashion trend for men and women since the early 2000s. In recent months, Ugg boots have grown again in popularity with men with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio being spotted in them. They were originally designed to provide bare minimum footwear for under privileged children in southern Australia. They somehow managed, despite their appearance, to gain popularity among boys and girls in the United States and Europe.

Ugg has its own website, too! Looks like a good boot for the snow here, too!
