Wedding Uggs.   (

(Newser) – Uggs have never been more sartorially controversial than they are right now: The Australian shoemaker has unveiled a new line of wedding Uggs, causing many a blogger and Twitter user to express their horror at the very idea. But not everyone is saying "I don't." Some reactions:

  • "Ugg's I Do! collection gives ex wives-to-be three options for relaxed yet idiotic footwear for their Big Day," writes Erin Gloria Ryan on Jezebel. "Can I call a pair of shoes a miscarriage? An abortion? How about an ectopic pregnancy? An ovarian cyst? This is everything bad, painful, or inconvenient that can happen in or around a woman's uterus, but in shoe form."

  • "Oh God, the horror," writes Julie Gerstein on The Frisky. Wear these and be judged: "I’m going to assume that you really wanted to be on the show Bridezilla, and that you’re probably some kind of half woman-half monster chimera. Just saying."
  • On the Huffington Post, Jessica Misener is more forgiving, admitting that the shoes "certainly look comfortable."
  • And on TheGloss, Jessica Pauline Ogilvie positively gushes, defending the shoes as "delightful" and pointing out that Uggs are comfortable and could be worn before and after the wedding if not during the ceremony itself.
