In 1978, Australian surfer Brian Smith moved to Santa Monica, California, where he established the UGG brand. It was named after a type of footwear popular in the surfing community back in his native country. Ugg boots were made of sheepskin, which Smith was very passionate about. They were also used more for their warmth than for style. He began selling his sheepskin boots around the beaches of Southern California, where they became an instant hit.
By the mid-1980s, UGG had become an embodiment of the relaxed lifestyle of Southern California. Surf stores and other shops all around California were soon stocking the brand’s boots. Ski shops, streetwear stores, and small-town establishments sold the label’s eponymous boots for any season, especially during winter weather.
In 1995, the business was acquired by Deckers Brands, which was responsible for further expanding the company. The parent company sought endorsements from various celebrities, which helped in bringing the brand into mainstream fashion. UGG didn’t stop with just producing boots, either, as it soon delved into footwear for sports and active lifestyles, along with casual kicks.
