UGG began in the 70s as a small brand of sheepskin boots created by Brian Smith, an Australian surfer living in Southern Californian. Smith saw the opportunity to bring his designs to the sunny, relaxed shores of the Golden state. Rapidly gaining popularity in the active lifestyle market, UGG then became a global trend in the 2000s; today, the brand's boots and accessories continue to be adored for their rugged functionality and carefree Australian style. Focusing on cool mules and wooden platforms, UGG heels bring an Australian sensibility to stylish footwear. Sandy, neutral tones and inventive embellishments will team perfectly with a casual closet.
