When UGGs Become Thigh High UGGlier!
Ugg has given their classic an updated look at the hands of Y/Project, debuting last week at the brand’s PFW runway. The collaboration between creative head Glenn Martens and UGG resulted in the ‘slouchy-est’ trend ever. With comfort in mind, the latest Ugg boots are thigh high and very cosy just like dipping your foot in warm butter..
“Putting on Uggs is like putting your foot in a warm pot of butter, and I thought why not elevate that and immerse your full legs,” Martens told Vogue. “So we decided to design an Ugg boot that climbs up to the crotch and covers the whole leg.”
Well, unless you are a citizen of harshly cold regions, would you be a fan of such a bizarre trend? Described as creature-comfort boots, thanks to their fleece lining and thick sheepskin leather exterior, the insulation kept feet warm and toasty, and this upgrade to provide warmth to legs as well just keeps us wondering, what if you wanted to pack them in a suitcase???
Both men and women wore the boots down the runway, once and for all settling the longtime debate that not everyone can pull off deliciously ugly things.All versions seen in the collection will be available for purchase later this year. Also, they’ll range from $270 to $1,380.
