Do you ever see a woman wearing UGG footwear, and find yourself wondering how the label caught on as a fashion trend here in the United States? The popular designer brand is commonly spotted on the feet of celebrities in Los Angeles, and everyday people at local coffee shops around the world. According to the website for the label, “The UGG® Australia story began in 1978, when Brian Smith, a young surfer from Australia, took a trip to the United States with a bag full of sheepskin boots. After finding a new home amongst California surfers, the UGG® Australia brand began to take shape.” How did the boots catch on in such a warm area of the country? Ideal for wearing without socks — the natural insulation of the luxurious sheepskin allows an individual’s feet to remain cool and dry at the same time. Women and men throughout the world love UGG® footwear, because of its comfortable styling and versatility. The high-end brand currently produces fashionable shoes, apparel and accessories for women, men and kids of all ages.
