UGG is derived from the name "ugly boots," and is well known in Australia and New Zealand as a unisex style of sheepskin footwear rather than a particular brand. In the 1920's Australian shearers first used sheepskin off-cuts to keep their feet warm in the cold outback winters, however after adaption and customisation they have developed into comfortable and warm "ugly" boots. Since then, the shearers "Ugly" boots, which are made from 100% Australian natural merino sheepskin, have gained global popularity and acceptance.

During the First World War British aviators boots were universally referred to as "Fug" boots, a fleece lined brown suede boot. Nevertheless, the word Ugg is now firmly etched into Australian folk law and is regarded as a national symbol just like the koala and Kangaroo.
