Tamara Mellon, would you ever ChUGG off.

I am in bad need of a sensible pair of walkable-innable winter boots to replace my fake UGGS, but I would have to be blind or drunk or both simultaneously for these abominations to feature on my shortlist.

They might look like something you'd expect to pull out of the bottom of a bargain bin in Heatons, but actually they're the result of a collaboration between UGG and Jimmy Choo.

Not since your woman Ciara started wearing Irregular Choice shoes on The Apprentice have I been so put off a brand.

I think it's fantastically ironic that these boots have been dubbed "ChUGGS" since that's exactly what I wanted to do when I saw them first. If they don't make you lose your breakfast, you'll find them exclusively at the Jimmy Choo boutique in Brown Thomas' Shoe Rooms where prices start from €495. Best get your skates on if you fancy a pair, though, as they're a limited collection.

Thank God for small mercies.

    Oh these really are the most UGGly boots I have ever seen. Disgusting. Surprised at Choo.

    Glad it's not just me! It's wrecking my head that so many mags and fashion blogs are falling all over themselves about how fabulous dahling these boots are.

    I can fully appreciate individual style but can we not just call a spade a spade when something is properly hideous?

    Couldn't agree more with you. I can't understand how something so hideous can be so expensive and so popular!

    I know a girl who paid €530 for the studded ones. She think she's the bee's knees in them :roll: A triumph of money over taste imo.
