By the mid 1980's, the UGG brand became a symbol of relaxed southern California culture, gaining momentum through surf shops and other shops up and down the coast of California, from San Diego to Santa Cruz.
By the early 2000's, UGG Australia began to take it by storm. UGGS became very popular and they started to make many different styles. They had made sheepskin boots, slippers, clogs and sandals.

How its Made

UGGS are typically made of twin-faced sheepskin with fleece on the inside, a tanned outer surface and a synthetic sole. The fleece is tanned into the leather. The stitching is often on the outside of the UGG boot. The natural insulation properties of sheepskin gives isothermal properties to the boots: the thick fleecy fibers on the inner part of the boots which allows moisture and air to circulate, keeping the feet at body temperature and allowing the boots to keep feet warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather


The sheepskin is extremely dense and soft, which provides a more comfortable and durable material. Grade-A sheepskin breathes naturally, wicking away moisture, and allowing air to circulate freely. Sheepskin is naturally thermostatic thus keeping bare feet close to your natural body temperature regardless of the temperature outside.
