Ugg boots are loved by teenagers, but there's an array of thirty and forty-something year old celebrities regularly snapped in their Uggs – when it comes to Uggs, does age matter?

For those who thought UGG were a flash in the pan, the Australian footwear giant has proved its dominance in the credit crunch. It seems Ugg boots just keep flying off the shelves and are hotter than ever – fashionistas have explained why the Ugg trend won't die – Uggs are 'so over they are hot again'. Sales for Deckers Outdoor Corp who make the Ugg boot saw a 37.6% rise in the first quarter fuelled by a 66.9% increase in Ugg sales. Strong demand for Ugg boots seems unwavering with women and men of all ages embracing Uggs. But not everybody is sure if Uggs are right for them – one writer in the Daily Mail wanted to know if at 37, she was too old for Ugg boots.

To Ugg or not to Ugg

The question seems to reinforce that there's one rule for celebrities and one rule for the rest of us. Sarah Jessica Parker is regularly spotted wearing Uggs and she is in her forties, Gwyneth Paltrow is also a regular Ugg wearer and in her late thirties and Jennifer Aniston is another Ugg fan who has hit the big 40. Most Ugg fans would argue that it's the fact that you don't have to be young to wear Uggs that make them so popular. They are, ultimately, like wearing slippers outdoors. Uggs are laid back - the result of an Australian surfer's imagination – which explains their effortlessly cool vibe. Sheepskin is not only incredibly comfortable, its thermostatic, which means Ugg boots keep your feet at the right temperature in freezing and boiling conditions, making them the ultimate versatile footwear.

Uggs – A Hug for your Feet

Perhaps it's these reasons that the Ugg boot has outlived other fashion fads and become a year-on-year bestseller. The on-going trend has prompted fashion critics to pronounce Ugg boots as 'fashion proof'. So why are older women wondering whether they're too old to wear Uggs at 37? Some feel Ugg boots don't lengthen the legs like heels do, or can make you walk in a clumpy way. Maybe the fact that the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston look amazing in a black plastic sack has something to do with it. But one things for sure – love or hate them – Ugg boots are here to stay.
