discount uggs uk Twitter reacts in horror to thigh high Ugg boots at PFW
They’re perhaps one of the most divisive fashion items of all time, with some adoring their sheepskin cosiness and others deploring their ugliness.
Now the classic Ugg boot has undergone a high fashion makeover in partnership with theFrench brand Y/Project, unveiled at the men’s show at Paris Fashion Week yesterday.
But stylistas were left horrified by the Ugg’s rebirth as a slouchy thigh high boot, likening them to the coat of a Shar Pei dog and saggy, wrinkled elephant skin.
One said it was the ‘end of civilisation’, while another said we should all ‘forget Uggs ever happened’.
Others pointed out that if tall, slim models can’t pull them off there’s no hope for the average person.
One commentator likened the boots to saggy elephant skin
‘Y/Project is about challenges. Since launch we’ve been twisting the grounded codes, we challenged the acceptable and triggered people by putting focus on the unexpected,’ he said.
‘By reworking the Classic boot with a typical Y/Project twist such as the triple overlaps and the extra long legs we want to celebrate the Ugg brand’s unique history.’
The capsule collection was presented by both male and female models, reflecting Martens’ focus on creating pieces that can be worn regardless of gender.
Please clap: Martens (pictured) stepped out for a round of applause at the end of the show during which he presented his new designs
‘He designs conceptual and thought provoking collections and footwear, we knew he would do something unexpected with our Ugg classic boot.
‘Re interpreting our DNA in new and exciting wayswe love the results!’
Ugg’s new releases come just a month after it debuted a heeled version of its classic sheepskin boot.
Christened the Kasen, the shoe comes in two different versions: a low boot, which is priced at $150,
and a tall one, which retails for $250.
Rosie Huntington Whiteley, an ambassador for Ugg, was spotted wearing the new shoes ahead of their release, styling them with jeans and a beige coat, however not everyone appeared convinced that adding heels to Ugg boots, which are favored by many for their comfort, was a good idea.
‘Who is out there putting heels on UGGs?! MAKE THEM STOP. Immediately,’ one Twitter user wrote after photos of the new Kasen boots emerged.
