UGG Australia was founded by Australian surfer Brian Smith. He created the brand when a pair of sheepskin boots he brought with him on a visit to California were snapped up by admiring beach bums.
In 1995 Deckers Outdoor Corporation acquired UGG® Australia.
Classic UGG boots are made of sheepskin but the collection has expanded to include boots, sandals and slippers in leather, suede, and knit. They can be worn with anything from jeans to dresses to a pair of sweatpants. UGG accessories include handbags, gloves, scarves, hats and earmuffs.
