Imagine you have a dog. Its one of those fancy mixed breeds, a mixture of two cute things that somehow make a mish-mashed third.
Take the cockapoo. Its genetic scrambled eggs, a mix of cocker spaniel and poodle. Breeding those two dogs together gets you a literal teddy bear of a dog. Its one so cute that its in demand all over the world.
But what if you could take that formula and somehow flip it upside down and backwards? Two controversial things make an even more controversial third, and everybody has an opinion.
This is the world were living in, folks.
Teva sandals and Ugg boots have somehow merged, becoming a sandal-boot combo that quite honestly has me at a loss for words. This has to be peak dressing comfortably, thats for sure.
Womens Wear Daily reports the two brands are properties of the same company, Deckers Brands, which makes the fashion collaboration understandable. Whats not quite as easy to explain, however, is why theyve gone with this particular design.
The Teva x Ugg sandals (theres a boot-sandal version, too) have the general shape of a Teva. Everywhere a strap touches your foot, however, has been lined with heavenly sheepskin.
Its like party on the outside, pajamas on the inside. And in the era of editors wearing silk pajamas to fashion shows, Im willing to bet theyll sell out.
Im just trying to figure out the ideal situation in which a person needs their toes to be cold, but ankles and lower calves to be warm.
Maybe youre out at night in Miami, but hoping to dip just your toes in the water? What if you got a pedicure in the winter, and youre waiting for the polish to dry?
If youre looking for a stylish place to put your toes, itll cost you the footwear equivalent of a fancy mattress. The Teva x Ugg sandals, available for purchase now, sell for $175.
More of a boot person? That brings the total to $225.
Start saving your pennies now. Just dont complain to me when your toes freeze off.
