We were resisting the urge to write about this but it seems everywhere we turn there is evidence to prove that UGG boots are still selling like hot cakes. Today WWD reported that UGG was responsible for carrying independent retailers through an ugly weekend of slow sales and bad weather. To prove the point, or strictly by coincidence, Racked snapped a picture of the line outside of the Soho store and Fashionista posted on their overall amazement. This, in the end, opened the floodgates for commenters who, for the most part, only confirmed the strange phenomenon with enthusiasm. We're not saying that UGGs have been eradicated from New York but, we will say, this is a perfect example of when it pays not to live here--sometimes it can actually make you really, really out of touch. With a little research we learned that every major retailer still stocks them with the exception of Net-a-Porter, who seems to be stocking a replica brand. Who knew?
