Ugg and Jimmy Choo’s Collection: Love it or hate it?

The fashion world may not realize it, but the rise and continued success of Ugg boots has surprised the rest of us. And now Jimmy Choo and Ugg have released a special collection of boots that are already making it into many of our favorite stars’ wardrobes.

Megan Fox recently stepped out for lunch with a pair of studded Ugg/ Choo’s on. And Ashley Greene made them part of her airport style while heading off to continue filming Breaking Dawn. It seems it will only be a matter of time before the rest of Hollywood is sporting the limited edition boots.  

Ranging from zebra print to western inspired, the new Ugg collection goes for $500 to $800. The shape of the boots may have remained the same, but true to Choo, there are tons of studs, stars and glitz on each design.

Uggs were something we all loved to hate when they first entered the fashion world. But between their extreme comfort and Hollywood’s countless supporters, they became more and more popular. Worn with anything from leggings to skinny jeans, and short shorts to sun dresses, Hollywood made these boots cool.

Ugg sales soared again this past Christmas and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. We just can’t seem to help ourselves when it comes to these sheepskin boots. And this new Ugg/ Choo line can make you feel like anything from a rockstar with the Starlit boot to a chic Texan with the fringed Sora.

What do you think: will enough people pay up to $800 for collector Uggs? Do you love or hate these glitzed-up, wear-with-anything, boots?
