Uggs: They are a fashion monster, and yet, many people swear by their comfort. But teens and pre-teens at one Philadelphia-area middle school won’t be allowed to wear them anymore, either way. That’s because officials at Pottsdown Middle School feel that Uggs offer an all-too convenient hiding place for contraband cell phones. (If there had been cell phones when I was in high school, I would have failed.)
Those found sporting the hideous, mobile-phone-hiding footwear will receive detention. The Uggs ban may hopefully have unintended positive consequences — like pushing better footwear decisions upon teen girls.
