Everyone knows a pair of Uggs when they see them! However, these instantly-recognizable boots were once more than must-have, trendy footwear. It all began back in 1978 when Australian surfer Brian Smith traveled to the US with a bag of sheepskin boots, meant for warming cold toes after hanging ten in chilly water. Eventually the Ugg Australia brand began to take shape with surfers in the States. Nowadays, Ugg Australia has positioned itself in the luxury market with the highest quality sheepskin, along with their promise of comfort and quality. The brand has expanded its footwear collection, as well cold-weather accessories for men, women, and children.
