Z: Boot sales on Zappos do not say anything of significance at all. Those of us who have studied UGG sales over the years know that UGGs are selling significantly well only when UGG Classic Shorts are number one among ALL women's shoes on Zappos -- not merely among boots. You will see this happen again this fall if UGGs are still strong. Right now they are number 10 -- which is quite good for this time of year and a big improvement over a week ago.
Why don't you give us some reports on what salespeople are saying in the UGG stores in New York. That would be a contribution to this board.
