We first told you about the unlikely pairing of haute footwear house Jimmy Choo and the oft groaned about brand UGG Australia back in January.

And although the curiosity-inducing collaboration is not supposed to hit stores until October, socialite Nicky Hilton seems to have gotten her hands on a pair and innocently posted an image of the boots on her Twitter page.

Under the title "Love my new Jimmy Choo Uggs!" Hilton reveals a pair of boots that appear to be black and are covered in star-shaped silver studs with fringe dealing on the fold-over top.

The "Chugg" boots (as they've been endearingly dubbed by members of the fashion industry) will be a part of the brands' capsule collection, which was born out of Choo president Tamara Mellon's love for the sheepskin style.

"Other than Jimmy Choos, UGG Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe," Mellon, who is rumored to be selling her brand, said in a quizzical statement at the time.

While Hilton most likely got her pair gratis, we commoners will have to fork over $595-$795 for the boots, which will come in five styles and multiple hues.

Based on Hilton's sneak preview, are you digging the new collection or do you think they as UGGly as their predecessors? Let us know in a comment.
