Get booted at 6pm today

I think I might need to stop checking 6pm.com. Either that, or I just need to stop ordering things from 6pm. But these two things seem intertwined, somehow. If only I could figure out the connection….

Today’s Holiday Blitz item there (one deep discount, one day only) is the Ukala Sydney Taj High, a.k.a. Yet Another Ugg-like Boot, for just $40 shipped (four colors available). This is a great price on a boot that’s usually over $100, so that’s pretty sweet. In addition, one of their front-page deals is on Bearpaw boots, which—and I know this is heresy in Ugg circles, but I’m going to say it—I vastly prefer to the Ugg/Ukala type sole. Bearpaws have a rubberized sole which I find sturdier overall, whereas Ugg and Ukala use that weird foam-like stuff which I guess is supposed to be more comfortable, but doesn’t seem as durable/weatherproof to me. Some of the Bearpaws start at $40, as well, so look around and see what strikes your fancy.

As for me, it’s been over 70 degrees here this week, so I probably don’t need any super-warm boots. I guess. Hmph.

    I refuse to give up wearing my uggs even though my feet sweat because of the heat wave.

    We were camping in Colorado and had a toasty fire going in an old big-rig tire rim. You know, the foamy-type soles on my faux-uggs melts when you put your feet up against the outside of said tire rim… I caught it pretty quick, so “’tis just a flesh wound” on the very bottoms, but they now collect more pebbles than they used to. Just sharing so no one else does it.

    Sorry about the previous message. Just wanted you to STOP talking about how warm you are and have a little sympathy for those of us in the north. Harrumph. Boots though – good!
