McDermott, a consultant at the London Bridge Hospital in the UK points out that UGG boots do not offer the needed foot support which could lead to premature wearing off of the joints and cartilage, and if left untreated, this problem may increase the needs for an operation.
Additional Problems with UGG Boots
Wearing these boots can trigger posture issues as well. Wearing them for more than several months on a regular basis may elevate the chance for knee operations. Therefore, women should avoid buying them as well as parents who are buying them for their children.
Orthopedic doctors emphasize that women should avoid wearing these model of boots, especially if they have flexible joints. The risk in young children is therefore even higher! This is because specific feet deformities can be neglected if the child wears these boots because they will mask the problem that could impact their proper growth and development.
They may be prone to negative changes in their walking pattern as the foot does not get the needed support and it flexes inwards.
