Brian Smith, an Australian surfer, created the UGG brand in the 70s. Smith saw the opportunity to bring Australian sheepskin boots to California's coastal surfing communities, thus bringing a covetable style to the forefront of the lifestyle market. Expanding into a global trend in 2000, UGG boots are adored for their rough functionality and carefree style. Laidback style and casual comfort reign supreme throughout this men's UGG sneaker collection. lace-ups, sneakers and slip-ons support the heritage of UGG, with a versatile color palette and the brand's trademark sheepskin lining providing an must-have finish.
