You've heard of knee-window jeans. You've seen the Balenciaga platform Crocs but nothing you've ever seen in your life will prepare you for what might be the ultimate crime against fashion.

Everyone at some point in their lives has owned and loved a pair of Ugg boots, right? They're almost like a rite of passage for tweens who think they're stylish AF and students who literally don't own any other shoes.

But um, forget about those chestnut brown ankle (or calf, if your parents splashed out at Christmas for longer ones...) length boots because an actual collection of THIGH HIGH Uggs just debuted at the Menswear's Paris Fashion Week earlier this week and they are truly, TRULY, the most offensive thing you'll ever see.

Y/PROJECT is a French fashion label known for their wild designs with tons of layers and you know what, for the most part, their looks are kind of cool. But this... this has gone too far. And the internet is absolutely LOSING it.

The label's creative director Glenn Martens wrote about why he decided to show the boots. Here's what he said: “Putting on Uggs is like putting your foot in a warm pot of butter, and I thought why not elevate that and immerse your full legs! So we decided to design an Ugg boot that climbs up to the crotch and covers the whole leg.”

The average pair of Ugg boots will set you back around £150 but these? They're reportedly going to cost you over $1000. And like, while having warm legs in the winter time is nice, it's gonna have to be a firm no from us.
