Initially worn by Australian sheep-shearers, early aviators and surfers, Ugg boots were always very much a man’s boot. However, when a young Australian surfer called Brian Smith took a bag full of sheepskin boots with him on a trip to the USA in 1978, they were an instant hit on the Californian surf scene, and Ugg as a luxury fashion brand for both sexes began in earnest.
The Ugg collection
Lined with the highest grade sheepskin which is extremely dense and soft, Ugg boots are always supremely comfortable and warm, whilst allowing the skin to breathe naturally. Their latest collection includes a huge range of the popular and much-imitated sheepskin boots constructed in a variety of fabrics and finishes, and also includes summer sandals, flip flops and wedges, as well as a range of accessories.
