New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady not only wears Ugg boots, he famously embraces the brand and has appeared in commercials promoting the sheepskin product.
Of course, Brady is universally mocked for the decision, but when you’re Tom Brady you could wear Elmo inspired slippers and get away with it.
I’m guessing that was the thought of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who decided to show up at the team’s practice facility today wearing a pair of the unisex boots which the team, especially running back DeAngelo Williams had quite the chuckle over:

Of course, when you’re putting up MVP-ish numbers and have rattled off eight straight victories en route to a 9-3, you can pretty much pull of any fashion style you want.
That doesn’t mean you’re going to be lacking any ridicule though.
I will say – if Cam was going to rock some Ugg boots, he should have at least donned some custom paint on them, much like his Batman and Superman cleats. Superhero Ugg’s for the win.
