    I was thinking about getting Ugg Boots and my daughter mentioned that she heard some may have a Shatnez issue. Has anyone heard of this problem and have had their shoes and boots checked? and if so, was there a specific style/model that were problematic. As they are boots/footwear, it would be difficult to remove. Any help or info would be provided if the Shatnez lab put out alerts on certain Uggs

    Why not let mazal77 do right by this mitzvah?

    It’s a personal thing and may be what mazal77 needs to do to grow in Yiddishkeit.

    Plus Ugg boots are a big investment. If mazal77 is thinking about purchasing a pair, which will keep her/his feet warm and protected, then I can see how it would be essential to know that she/he is walking in line with Hashem’s Will from the very first step outside.

    Sorry if I am taking things personally. When I went vegan I got rid of all my leather shoes and belts. It was such a big deal to make sure that I wasn’t walking around with something that was so against my morals at the time. That was my version.

    And this is Torah.

    How much more important is this?

    Yes understandable to invest in the big picture. Yet sometimes smaller practical details help form the borders with smaller manageable steps (like when you make the borders of a puzzle using edge pieces).

    If your boots are not made of leather, throw them out.

    Ugh, now the ridiculous post lightbrite responded to is gone so it looks as if she just started a random monologue.
