In other words, you can get used to just about anything if you live with it for long enough. I think that's what's happening here. When I first saw people wearing the Minnetonka boots, my initial reaction was - Oh great, it's gonna be the new Ugg boot. My detest for them was not to be taken lightly. But... now I'm not so sure. I'm going to put the blame squarely on the shoulders of Miss Moss who, granted, could wear a potato sack and still look lovely. I still haven't completely made up my mind. As Heidi would say, "Are they in or are they out?"
