Crimes of Fashion, Shoes

Ugg make new styles of boots for you to hate


I know I had that brief "I’m totally going to buy me some Uggs and you can’t even stop me!" moment a couple of weeks ago, but a quick look at Ugg’s Fall 2007 trunk show collection has brought me back to my senses with a short, sharp shock. These styles are currently available to pre-order at Nordstrom, although why you would want to is beyond me. I mean, OK, we’ve always known that Uggs are made from sheepskin, but it tends to be treated in some way first, no? The boot on the left here looks like they just took the sheep and wrapped it around a pair of boots. Men’s boots. And we’ve always known that Uggs look like slippers, but the boots on the right? Look like socks.

Ugg, you have excelled yourselves. You have seen the way some people (*Ahem*)  were being seduced by your comfy, slipper-like softness, and you have raised your game to put the "Ugg" back in "Ugly".  I don’t know whether to laugh or cry…
