- On Wednesday, designer Y/Project revealed a collaboration with Ugg during a Paris Men's Fashion Week Show.
- The footwear collab includes thigh-high, knee-high, mid-calf, and sandal-like variations of the boots.
- People don't know what to make of the boots.
Glenn Martens, the brand's creative director, explained the inspiration behind the surprising collaboration to Vogue.
"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 said. "So we decided to design an Ugg boot that climbs up to the crotch and covers the whole leg."
In addition to the thigh-high option, it appears that there are also knee-high, mid-calf, and sandal-like variations of the shoes.
People took to Twitter to talk about the shoes.
Huffington Post blogger Sidonie Sawyer slammed the boots. She called the shoes "the uggliest UGG boots" and claimed "they are made of murderous real fur and leather."
Twitter user @AnikakyIe also criticized the shoes, arguing that "we have pushed the limits of fashion too much."
Others, like @Mualyssa, appear to be fans. "I am here for the [knee-high] Ugg boots. Yes, keep my whole a-- leg warm please," she wrote.
Meanwhile, Derek Guy of Die, Workwear! and Put This On made a picture from the runway show into a meme.
While these shoes would certainly keep you cozy during the cold months ahead, they won't be on sale for some time, as they're part of the brand's Spring/Summer 2018 line. When they hit shelves, the boots will reportedly cost between $270 and $1,380, according to Popsugar.
And while this is the strangest thing we've seen out of Fashion Week so far, there's likely more to come. In the fall of 2017, designers brought us thong jeans, platform Crocs, and a dress that looked like a dry cleaning bag, among other surprising items.
