UGG began as an idea dreamt up by Brian Smith, an Australian surfer living in Southern California. Smith decided to bring Australian sheepskin boots to the shores of the United States, capitalizing on the relaxed, surf lifestyle in the area. Throughout the 70s and 80s UGG achieved success in the active lifestyle clothing market, then became a major trend in the 2000s, now adored worldwide for their comfortable footwear and accessories channeling the carefree UGG lifestyle. Hardy booties and summery cork sandals combine for this range of UGG wedges, reflecting utilitarian functionality and casual Australian style. Colorful prints and innovative shapes make these wedges a classic addition to any closet.
