It was just too easy: When Jimmy Choo and Uggs announced their collaboration, we couldn’t resist poking fun. So we wondered … if Jimmy Choo and Uggs had a baby what would it look like? Thanks to the Photoshop magic performed by our editor, Amelia, we created “Chuggs,” a heinous high heel sheepskin bootie (left, obviously). On the right is the real thing, a fringed boot bedazzled with star studs, which all of you deemed completely “fugs.” So, which do we think is uglier—our own Photoshop rendering or the actual model?

I’m on the fence about these blinged-out Jimmy Choo Uggs, which Nicky Hilton got an advance pair and tweeted a pic of yesterday. They’re kinda cute — like I see them cheering me up on a glum winter day. But the “limited distribution” booties cash in at over $1,000. Um, what? That’s crazy! How much craftmanship really goes into a pair of snow boots? [via Nicky Hilton's Twitter] Keep reading »
When it’s hot and raining, the last thing you want to do is stuff your feet into a pair of calf-suffocating Wellies. Perfect for flash downpours in summer: Slow and Steady Wins the Race’s water-repellent pumps. They give you a sexy three inches and a vixen-y color while keeping your feet dry thanks to a nylon shell. For $100, the price is absolutely right. And we bet they’d work just as well in the snow. Although that shouldn’t stop you from wearing them on a completely dry day, too.

Few and far between are the crochet accessories that manage not to look like hippie-wear. These Candela NYC booties, however, expertly walk the fine line between something that belongs in the closets of people who went to Woodstock and pretty-chic. The ribbon laces, sleek shape, and floral pattern make them a total win in our book.

Will it ever end!? As if being able to surgically alter your breasts, hips, nose, cheeks, lips, butt, thighs and stomach wasn’t enough, women are now getting cosmetic procedures on their feet so they can fit into tiny heels and look absolutely perfect in a pair of sandals. The Beverly Hills Aesthetic Foot Surgery in Studio City in Los Angeles is fueling this awful trend with their trademark “Cinderella Procedure” which gives clients narrower feet. Others go for the “Perfect 10! Aesthetic Toe Shortening,” which is just what it sounds like. Women can get their toes shortened and even straightened because buying shoes that actually fit just makes too much sense. For gals who can’t spend a single day in flats or sneakers, docs at the clinic will provide extra cushioning by injecting fat from their butts into the bottoms of their feet, supposedly to make stilettos more comfortable. If the worst thing about your tootsies is that they sweat, docs will inject them with Botox which stops glands from working properly, thus eliminating sweat.
