We don’t feel this is going to help David Bentley’s fight for regular first team football. Neither does Michael Dawson. Image via spursonside
Yesterday, an event took place that shook the very foundations of football in England. It caused upset, confusion and disconsolate wailing up and down the country. People wandered the streets, mystified. They simply couldn’t understand. How could Darren Bent have posted a picture of himself (left) on Twitter wearing… a pair of UGGs? (Image via DB11TT)
As you might expect, we at Kickette immediately took him to task over his footwear decision making skills. He defended himself by blaming the cold weather, a claim we dismiss on the grounds that in snow, UGGs are about as much use as a chocolate teapot. He countered our dismissal by bringing in his boys. They panicked and sought back up.
The upshot? We pledged to throw the Ugg question out to our soldier boys and girls, aficionados of the pretty and uncompromising in their condemnation of all things ugg-ly. Is it ever appropriate for a guy to wear said boots, Kickettes? Or should all known pairs be confiscated and gathered into a large pyre, to be burned at a later date?
Maybe we’re wrong in our vociferous dismissal. After all, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is due to endorse UGGs for men, and fashion icon/tighty whitey merchant Robbie Savage (left) is rarely seen out of them. We’re just not sure. By voting in the Kickette UGG Boot Poll (below), you can take part in the debate that’s sweeping the nation, and perhaps help settle the matter once and for all. You were happy enough to give us your views on ladies in UGGs (50/50 down the line) so we can’t imagine you’ll hold back.
Think hard, people. Your conclusions may have consequences.
