a56c4d51efb6e350c22b6f774b6b9e08Tom Brady is a hero to millions in the Northeast and beyond. For many of these people, Tom is also a man-crush, a sex icon, and the ultimate human being. With all of these attributes, how then can he be wrong in his choice of footwear?

Answer: He isn’t.

Uggs are a brand of shoe now commonly ridiculed for its “basic” stigma, and the brand is almost always placed in the feminine domain. However, this Rock writer wants to ask the hard-hitting question: WHY?

Uggs are probably super comfortable- the fur lining on the interior probably feels like a cloud for my foot. dudes-uggs-stool-smilingAnd not to mention the various styles of shoe available to the consumer! Just like the purse, why are Uggs something that men can’t enjoy without being made fun of?

Of course, there’s the age-old argument that one shouldn’t care what other people think, but what if I reject that idea entirely and simply want to peacefully enjoy a nice pair of leggings and some Ugg boots with my morning yoga and Starbucks frappuccino mocha? I’m a man, and I should be able to do all of these things without that jerk Martha giving me the eye from across the hot room.

In the end, all I argue for is what many in the Northeast will quickly agree with me on: Tom Brady is always right, gender stereotypes are stupid, I can do what I want, and Muggs are the hottest thing for male footwear–end of story.
