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.
Sheepskin: UGG® Australia uses only the highest-grade sheepskin available.
Twin-face sheepskin is used in many of their products. A piece of twin-face sheepskin has been treated on both the fleece side, and the skin side, providing the soft comfort UGG® Australia is famous for.
Grade-A sheepskin is extremely dense and soft, which provides for a more comfortable and durable material. Lesser quality material and synthetics can be coarse, scratchy, and non-breathable. Grade-A sheepskin breathes naturally, wicking away moisture, and allowing air to circulate freely.
Fleece breathes, wicks moisture away, and allows air to circulate, keeping feet dry. Sheepskin is naturally thermostatic thus keeping bare feet close to your natural body temperature regardless of the temperature outside.
Warmth: 30° Below – the science behind thermostatic footwear.
Ugg’s fine woolen sheepskin breathes, wicking heat and moisture away to keep your feet dry and at body temperature indoors and out. Sheepskin is a naturally thermostatic material. This means that while you’re wearing sheepskin, it’s automatically regulating your body temperature throughout the day. Because of this, UGG® Australia sheepskin footwear can be worn all year round. In addition to regulating body temperature, grade-A sheepskin breathes naturally, wicking heat and moisture away.
Slippers: Why not combine the warmth and comfort of sheepskin with a slipper? Ugg carries a fine array of slippers – the perfect gift to keep your friends and family (and you!) comfortable throughout the year.
