Believe it or not, the great story of UGG Australia is deeply rooted in surf culture. Way back when, surfers from Australia's Byron Bay beaches would wear sheepskin footwear to stay warm and keep dry between waves and long sessions.
With Australia being super abundant in sheepskin, it was easy for surfers to easily utilize hand-made, basic "footies' for serious comfort and perfect warmth all year 'round.
The foundation for the UGG concept had been born, but it was in 1978 that UGG founder Brian Smith landed in Southern California and began spreading awareness about the unique sheepskin boots he was passionate about. It wasn't long before UGG Australia became a symbol for comfort, accessibility and style... becoming one with the relaxed California lifestyle we know and love.
Today, UGG's remain a favorite for fashion seekers everywhere.
