After losing this weekend's NFL playoff game, Chad Ochocinco muffled his sorrows in a new pair of Uggs. Although the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver is a self-confessed fashion amateur, we had great hopes for him after his recent trip to the UES' Christian Louboutin boutique. The argument can be made that Cincinnati is cold, but is there really any excuse for Uggs? Ochocinco, allow us to play stylist for a moment and recommend something to (literally) get you back on your toes. Uggs don't make anyone feel better, but these do. [Twitter]
