UGG Olive Sneaker History
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 cleats 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 cleats 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 cleats. Ski shops, streetwear stores, and small-town establishments sold the label’s eponymous cleats 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 cleats, either, as it soon delved into footwear for sports and active lifestyles, along with casual kicks.
From its casual shoe catalog, the UGG Olive Sneaker offers a unique look with its cleat-meets-sneaker design. It has the appeal of an old-school high top combined with a modern upgrade. Just like its trademark ugg cleats, the brand made sure that this lifestyle sneaker offered comfort for all seasons. It has a soft leather structure along with a cushy sole, perfect for all-day walking, hanging out, traveling, and many more leisurely activities.
