First worn by Australian surfers for warmth during the colder months can be said to be the roots for what is known as the Ugg Boot today. Founded by Brain Smith in the 1970's, he himself had fallen for the Sheepskin experience of the boot which he had discovered from the surfers of Byron Bay in Australia. Smith believed that the relaxed easy feel to the Sheepskin boot would fit the relaxed lifestyles of those in California, and soon enough everyone had fallen for the boot. All Ugg Boots are made with the finest sheepskin, every piece of fabric is placed into an extensive quality control system to ensure that the customers products are at the high standard in which Ugg Australia desire and promise, that no other Boot will keep your feet warm and cool all at the same time. The company itself has expanded into a worldwide brand, especially as certain celebrities, such as Oprah, have declared their love for the Ugg Boot, and for the relaxed ad enjoyable lifestyle which the boot had sure enough become the symbol for.
