Ugg boots – love them or hate them – are an iconic footwear trend, or were in the early 2000s.
Ridiculously comfy and suspiciously designed like slippers, Uggs have become famous for being the marmite of footwear fashion.
And just when you thought you were getting used to the original design, a thigh-high Ugg design has been released.
Ugg have collaborated with French brand Y/Project who debuted a collection of controversial Ugg-style shoes this week.
One in particular which has caused drama is the thigh-high Ugg boot.
Since being released, the shoe has gone viral, with the Internet reacting to the adventurous design.

One person wrote on Twitter: “There was me thinking it was impossible to find a shoe uglier than the Ugg boot.”
Other’s simply commented: “No!” or, “Ew,” which are both understandable reactions.
Glenn Martens, creative director of Y/Project said: “The UGG Classic boot is one of the most recognisable shoes in history.
“Its timeless and challenging design made it a worldwide statement. 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.
“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,’ Glenn Martens, creative director of Y/Project, said in a statement from the brand.”
And while the bold statement may not be for everyone, some people are keen on the unique look, including Pixie Lott, who tweeted: “I need the thigh high Ugg boot comfinessssssgoaaallsssssssss.”
