Do Not Want: Sequined Ugg Boots

Is it just us, or are Uggs experiencing some form of horrible mutation? After the original came the colors—pink, purple, and the like. Then there was Jimmy Choo’s studded and fringed monstrosity. And now this: sparkly, sequined Ugg boots. People, stop the Uggsanity! [High Snobette]…

Ugg Offers More Than Its Classic Boot

Last week, I attended a soiree to celebrate the opening of a new Ugg Australia store in NYC. I won’t lie–I expected to see shelf upon shelf of Ugg’s standard boot in every height and color imaginable, and I wasn’t disappointed. But there was so much more. I died for the Cayha sneaker, a classic…

Do Not Want: Acne’s Highway Boot

As if the return of cargo pants couldn’t be more offensive, we now have this to deal with: Acne’s “Highway” boot, which comes adorned with hobo-like patch pockets. To be fair, we’re huge fans of the edgy Swedish label but can’t quite understand a) why you’d need eight pockets on your feet, and b) why…

Cheapskate: Leopard-Print Shoes, Boots, And Bags For Less

The above objects of desire — Christian Louboutin’s Big Lips Booty boots, Valentino’s Leopard Hair Calf Bow Tote, and Lanvin’s Leopard-Print Knee Boot — all cost way more than $1,000! And while leopard print continues to be a big trend, we can’t justify spending a month’s rent and food allowance on boots or a bag.

Do Not Want These Space Snack Boots

Irregular Choice is quite a fitting name for a brand that manufactured the horribleness called the Space Snacks Boot you see above. What’s even funnier is that these atrocious boots are actually OUT OF STOCK. Darn! I really hoped to buy the ugliest boot known to man, but a bunch of people with offensive taste…

Booties To Carry You All Day Long

As sad as it might be, it’s time to start thinking about fall fashion. The look and price of these Gap Suede Wedge Booties should cheer you up, though. These booties have a fashionable wedge heel that makes walking (and possibly running) comfortable. But also the style is highly functional. You’ll be able to pair…

These Brass Knuckle Boots Were Made For Fighting

Brass knuckle boots? Now someone’s gone and taken that whole brass knuckles trend too far. But they’re only $79.95 from Pleaser! Honestly, if they weren’t two-tone — well, they’d still be hideous, but less so. [Endless]…

Lindsay Lohan Really Wants To Hide That SCRAM Bracelet

Just last week, Lindsay Lohan put out a Twitter plea to Karl Lagerfeld for a few Chanel stickers to dress up her new SCRAM bracelet. When the designer shockingly didn’t immediately respond to her request, Lindsay must have realized she was going to need a second option to get through the court-ordered punishment. Rather tha…

Hunter Makes Wellington Boots For The Hard-Core Festival-Goer

Wellington boots are such popular footwear for summer music festivals, like Bonnaroo in Tennessee and Glastonbury in England where mud and dirt abound, that Hunter decided to create a special “Festival” take on the basic rubber boot. These badass wellies, which feature crocodile-stamped panels and silver-tone rivets, resemble tough-looking motorcycle boots. In our opinion, these…

End Your (Very Serious) Jean-Tucking Problems!

For some reason, I’m completely incapable of tucking my jeans into boots. Try and try as I may, I inevitably end up with an excess of jean above my shoes, causing me to abandon the effort and move on to heels or flats instead. It could be due to the fact that I rarely wear…
