Say what you will about both UGG boots and Skechers Shapeups?and yet, like the Energizer Bunny, they keep going and going and going. First up, for her (or the guy who's very comfortable in his masculinity, or has just stopped caring), there's the LA-specific, bedazzled UGG boot. The boots are an LA market exclusive (but: there is a NY version), with each boot adorned with Swarovski crystal landmarks: we see the palm trees, we're not sure if the clock is supposed to be the Farmers Market at the Grove, and we have no idea about the big red building. These tasteful, understated babies are only available at the UGG concept store at The Grove, $800. Next up, also for the guy who's very comfortable in his masculinity or has just stopped caring: Skechers Shapeups for Men. Need we even comment? We would love to see some LA powercouple rocking these two items at the same time.
