Shoes.com Insider on UGGWhile UGG Classic Boots are among the most widely recognized - and coveted - pairs in the world, there's much more to this loved label. Women, men, and kids clamor for the refined comfort that only UGG delivers.
Many fans of the UGG boot are surprised it all began with an Australian surfer. In 1978, Brian Smith moved to California to make sheepskin footwear. Smith and his fellow Aussie surfers had always fabricated foot-warmers out of sheepskin to keep cozy and dry on endless seaside days, but he had the ingenuity to apply that rugged beach technology to high-quality, everyday footwear. The soothing, moisture-wicking fabric and California-cool styling quickly gained UGG popularity among surfers and trendsetters all along the Golden State's coast.
Today, UGG boots are global fashion beacons for effortlessly chic comfort, thanks in part to countless celebrities - from famous actors to champion athletes - flashing them in ads and on the go. Simply put, UGGs for women and men alike are a relaxed look and status symbol all in one. You'll even see baby UGGs!
