UGG Cali Sneaker Low History

Australian surfer Brian Smith, along with Doug Jensen, founded UGG in 1978 in Southern California. Smith's Australian roots made him passionate about sheepskin, in particular, the cleats that are known as uggs in his native country. This type of footwear was popular among surfers and was used primarily for warmth. During the company's first season, it sold 28 pairs of the cleats.

International attention came in 1994 when the U.S. Olympic team wore the brand's cleats. A year later, Deckers Brands acquired the business and decided to expand it even more. Today, UGG operates as a division of Deckers. The parent company was also responsible for the emergence of UGG cleats as trendy footwear among well-known people. Deckers promoted UGG as a brand of high fashion, employing celebrities to endorse the shoes.

Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, and many more were seen wearing the brand’s cleats. Ever since then, UGG has been at the forefront of the lifestyle footwear category, moving beyond the eponymous shoes to experiment with many different styles. Its first flagship store was opened in Soho, New York City, with many more shops all over the world. 

The brand is not just highly popular for its UGG cleats, either, as such shoes as the UGG Cali Sneaker Low signals the company’s fashion-forward aspirations. This model is a nod to the 1970s skate culture of California, featuring a premium leather upper with a classic skate shoe silhouette. The retro look is combined with innovative features, elevating the sneaker for today’s modern lifestyle.
