When the Rockport shoe store next door to the Reebok Sports Club on Columbus and 67th Street closed, many wondered as to what would replace it. Well, we wondered. And then it was revealed that Ugg, purveyors of the puffy boots New Yorkers love to hate, would be taking over the space. Sating our constant interest in everything Ugg, Racked photo dude Will Femia dropped by and managed to snap this shot of the store in all its pre-opening glory. Looks fancy, doesn't it? Though the brand will probably use the space to showcase their new, higher-end line of boots and shoes for men and women, we're sure that the traditional sheepskin styles will be available as well.
