The footwear brand most bashed by fashion types has to be Ugg… closely followed by Crocs.

The fashion brand that’s quickly gaining a reputation for designing bizarre clothing is Y/Project. Remember their buttless jeans, convertible short shorts, and denim jacket with absurdly long sleeves?

Mash the two designers together, and you’re going to get something… interesting.

Interesting. Like these thigh-high Ugg boots.

Yes, friends: Thigh high Ugg boots. Not only does such a thing exist, but it’s been sent down a runway.

On Wednesday during Paris Fashion Week Men’s Y/Project debuted a collaboration with Ugg on the runway, displaying large, slouchy Uggs that reached models thighs alongside a slip-on toeless take on the classic boot.

The images shall haunt our dreams.

Y/Project’s creative director, Glenn Martens, said: ‘The UGG Classic boot is one of the most recognisable shoes in history. It’s 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.’

Yep, we definitely feel ‘triggered’.

Glenn adds: ‘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’.

If, for some reason, you fancy wearing thigh-high Ugg boots, which apparently feel like ‘putting your foot in a warm pot of butter’ (sounds like a bad idea in my opinion. Your feet would be so slippery), you’ll have to wait a while. The range isn’t set to launch until next Autumn.

Oh, and Y/Project’s updated Uggs will be priced between £195 and £995. You’d better get saving.
