Uggs may be the most comfortable pair of boots that I own, but that comfort certainly comes with a price. Dr. Olivier Zong, a director of surgery at NYC Footcare has claimed that wearing Uggs could increase your chances for getting foot fungus: “fungus breeds in dark, wet environments–conditions that are usually seen inside trendy sheepskin boots.”
This isn’t exactly that hard to believe because not only do you factor in disgusting foot sweat that may or may not be present when wearing Uggs, the worst is when you make the poor decision of wearing your Uggs in the rain.
Oh yes, you know what I’m talking about. The rain droplets soak the top of your Uggs seeping in through the sheep skin and when you get home to remove the shoes off your feet, your socks are wet. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, but it is reality… thanks for the heads up Dr. Zong!
