UGGs For Men: DB’s Truth Is Out There

Democracy is power, people. And nowhere is the power to effect change more evident than here at Kickette, where our enquiries into the critical issues of the day are attracting the attention of the world’s most influential press and influencing policy development across the globe.
What? It could happen.
You might recall that having expressed our ‘uncertainty’ over Darren Bent’s UGG boot exhibitionist tendencies, we threw out a challenge to our legions of sartorially tuned readers. Would Darren’s footwear decision making skills (left) be lauded? Or would (as we may have implied) he be banished from the hip n’happening vanguard and publically tried for furry crimes against feet?
We hate to say we told you so, Darren. But the Kickettes have spoken. A massive 66% of votes cast condemned UGG boots as ‘monstrous carbuncles on the feet of wizards’, with only 6% seeing them as ‘an invaluable addition to a modern metrosexual male’s wardrobe’.
The poll also had the added bonus of identifying those Kickettes in serious need of some kind of therapy; 18% for a lack of standards (Couldn’t care less, I won’t be looking at his feet) and a further 10% for just being bonkers generally (I love UGGs: men, women, children, dogs and cats, I’m down). We have contacted the relevant authorities on your behalf. (Image via spursonside)
Darren? It’s over to you. Will you be following public opinion and abandoning your UGGs? Or standing your fur-lined ground?
We await your next move with interest.
