One school in Pennsylvania took their disdain for UGGs to a whole new level. The Cut recently reported that a middle school in Pottstown, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, banned UGG boots from the school. Alright, it wasn't because of the administration's hatred for the furry boots. Students were using the spacious boots to hid their cell phones in during recess and then snuck them in to text during class (I have to say, this is brillant. No one at my middle school ever thought of this!). Student can wear the boots to and from school, so at least they'll have them to combat the weather - but they have to leave them in their lockers during the day. Parents are apparently already protesting, so hopefully, for these middle schoolers sakes, this 'shoe ban' will be lifted soon. Middle school winters without UGGs is like a Syracuse winter without a knee-length down puffer coat - unthinkable.
