Dear Jimmy Choo, We Never Saw it Coming: Your Affair With Ugg Has Broken Our Heart

Dearest Jimmy Choo,

We have had quite a love affair for years now, darling. Your commitment to creating only the highest quality shoes at equally high prices has brought on the admiration and worship you so deserve as one of the most iconic shoemakers in the world.

But, dear Jimmy, we must say it’s time to go our separate ways. It’s not us. It’s you.

It seems you’ve been caught dabbling with the annoying, wannabe-shoe-idol mistress of footwear. Ugg Australia.

Love the look... from the ankles up

No offense, Jim, but Uggs are, well, Ugg-ly. And kind of tacky. Talk about a way to ruin any outfit with the Ugg boot’s shapeless, bulky form. We don’t care how warm and fuzzy your new little gold-digging tartlet makes you feel.

You see, when you team up with the Ugg brand to create a limited edition collection of studded, fringed and animal print Jimmy Choo Ugg boots (which, BTW, one could make oneself with a BeDazzler), we just lose a lot of respect for such a prestigious shoemaker as yourself.

Our love affair will effectively end Oct. 21, when the Ugg and Jimmy Choo boots hit Jimmy Choo and Ugg Stores in addition to a selection of other shops. {Fashion United} We weren’t  speaking to you yesterday, when a sample set of the Jimmy Choo and Ugg collection began touring Jimmy Choo boutiques and was officially made available for pre-order for a 24-hour period. {Stylelist}

And would you kindly tell Supermodel Amber Valletta she’s looking pretty hot in this unfortunate collaboration’s ad campaign, but no actual, self-respecting, motorcycle-riding, badass biker chick would actually be caught dead wearing the collection’s gold and silver-studded black Mandah boots.

We loved the cheap thrill of your fling with H&M, but on this tawdry dalliance, we have to part ways.

With sincere regrets,

Signature9
