When it comes to day boots to wear with dresses and skirts, earthy trumps techno, and Indian moccasin-y styles in brown and beige provide the perfect boho feel. Plus they don’t evoke Pocahontas or Heavy Metal Parking Lot. These are totally vegetarian too, fabric scrunched together, with faux shearling inside and a rubber-wedge heel. “Illuminations Fond,” winter white, $75, at Skechers, 7500 Melrose Ave.; (323) 653-6302.

Damn, I thought I could sneak this past you. I can’t help it! I still love them. At night, most women are willing to suffer for sex appeal. So why do we have to suffer during the day too? No matter how unattractive or uncool they may be, Uggs were a gift from the foot gods for long-suffering fashionistas who’ve been ravaging their feet for the sake of having “Hot Legs” when they go out. After a hard evening of dancing and prancing, I think of my Uggs as recovery aids. Why tippytoe? I crave ’em like a greasy breakfast. If you’re like me, determined to help keep the Ugg alive, rest assured the company is doing its part to fight the backlash with a new line of colors and styles (see ’em at www.uggaustralia.com).
