Ugg Boots and Your Ankles


I’ve been watching the growth in popularity of Ugg boots and their cheaper copies and noticing how they bunch up around the ankle. While walking behind people wearing this style of boots I can’t help noticing how the foot drops in (collapsing the medial arch) and how the wearers become more knock kneed (genu Valgus). I tend not to concentrate on what’s happening on the hips as this may be mistaken for looking at something else.

So today I was happy to see  a short video of two different views on UGG style boots on the BBC homepage

After watching it a few times I find I’m mostly in agreement with Ian Drysdale.  The bit I’m really unhappy with is the idea of insoles.  I hate them.  The idea SHOULD be to get the muscles, bones and ligaments  to do the work themselves.  The insoles take the strain off the muscles, making them weaker, leading  to potential future problems.

Wearing insoles is a bit like going to the gym to make you fitter and stronger, but then paying  someone to exercise for you.  I’m sure you can see that while that may be easier,  it’s ultimately self-defeating and complete waste of time as you’re not going to benefit from going there.  Well your foot, ankle and lower leg muscles will be worked  if you use them rather than allowing the insoles to do the work.

The other point I don’t like is the idea of is wearing them in the house. I think the boots are damn ugly. They make wearers ankles look big, and I can’t see the point of wanting to make your legs look like carthorses legs . That’s not appealing even if it is just within your house.  It’s lucky the question women ask men is “Does my bum look big in this?” because if it were “Do my ankles look fat in these?” I’d have to answer yes every time.
