The iconic brand name from Australian company, Ugg Original Pty Ltd, who has been making Australian UGG boots starting back in 1988, the company began making sheepskin accessories and other products for tourist market, before specialising in the manufacture of high quality UGG boots for both the local and tourist markets.
In Australia, UGG means Australian Sheepskin Boots.
UGG boots became popular among the wool shearers in 1920s, when shearers would take a piece of wool and wrap it around their feet to keep them warm in the colder months. Shearers joked and called them "ugly boots" and with good old-fashioned Aussie slang, quickly got shortened from shearer's ugly boots to UGG boots.
Thus, UGG boots date as far back as the 1920s in Australia.
In modern times, UGG boots became popular because of their amazing comfort and warmth they bring to your feet.
The sheepskin is made incredibly soft so the boots are cosy and snug. UGG boots feel more like socks than shoes yet they are tough enough for outdoor use. the unique fleece insoles adapt to the natural contours of the wearer's foot thereby creating personalised arch support.
UGG boots can be worn in winter or summer. in cold weather the plush fleece of UGG boots provides an insulating layer by trapping body heat. In heat of summer, the natural fibers of fleece will actually cool the feet by wicking away perspiration. UGG boots are made to be worn barefoot to maximise the cushioning and warmth provided by the sheepskin.
All our UGG boots are handcrafted in Sydney Australia, using premium quality Australian merino sheepskin.
