Uggs are Uggs. The only real difference is that some are pink and most aren't.

The really cool ones that are wrapped with straps and trimmed with wolf fur along the top, and look like something out of a Frazetta painting, are only in women's sizes.

Wolf fur belongs on wolves.

I found a blue pair of real sheepskin Australian boots on eBay for $35 incl. s/h so I don't have to bring my real UGGs and get 'em all dusty.

For some reason, sheepskin bothers me much less than wolf skin. Guess I favor the hunters over the prey :D

You'd make an awesome pair of boots, Snuggles! And some yummy lamb chops. :D

I don't know if you even have to go there. Sheep are domesticated. At least the ones from which we get sheepskins mostly are. Wolves are wild. I don't know how we'd feel about "dogskin." But certainly, dog has always been an option for the fashion-conscience and impoverished set.
Sheep, as I understand it, for the most part, could not survive long outside our care. They do wonderfully under it. (Okay, I've never seen a sheep centered CAFO. I'm sure that some sheep are miserable. But I figure the ones I see in the open air are doing ok.) And the sheepskin is a side benefit to the mutton, so it's not being killed simply for the skin, whereas a wolf is typically killed for spite and the skin just seems like rubbing its face in it, metaphorically speaking.

And if I were smarter, I wouldn't have said this in public forum.

Very articulate explanation; thank you. :D

Plus, wolves are my personal spirit animal. I had an amazing dream about one once that changed my life.

Yeah, I dare not think of the plight of wild tigers, and they were my power animal when I was a kid.

Unfortunately, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been very hard on tigers. :cry:

Not to mention population pressures.

Yeah. Poor tigers. One of my cats has white tiger coloring and blue eyes. She's a pretty girl.

You know, I wasn't thinking of actual wolf skin necessarily.

Kind of expensive. Coyote skin is cheaper. ;)

Or dyed bunny fur, or even synthetic!
