Boot lovers, you are going to dig this. In terms of boots, Uggs are known for their classic style of boots.
Despite claims of Uggs’ boots not being Australian and insisting that they are rather Californian-style sheepskin boots, it has never stopped users from buying them. Why? Because at this point, their boots have become a fashion trend, ranging way back from the 2000s.
So, let us take a look at their history and current condition.
The company UGG Australia was founded in 1978 when Brian Smith, an Australian surfer, decided to shift to Southern California. He did this with the hope of designing a product out of sheepskin that would leave the market in shock and awe.
This is when the ‘Classic Boot’ was invented. When the 80s arrived, UGG Australia had become famous, of sorts. They had become a representation of the beach culture that was popular back then. They sped through the competition so well that you could find their product(s) almost in any surf shop.
Slowly the world started acknowledging the company and adopting it as a higher state of fashion. This was the dream that Brian was hoping to achieve, and he had achieved it within time.
In 1995, a company named Deckers Brands bought Smith’s company for around 14.6 million dollars intending to expand as much as possible.
After the company’s buying, UGG Australia slowly became an international brand and started having double the sales than before because of the recent international development.
Even celebrity shows like Oprah Winfrey’s show where it was a part of “Oprah’s Favorite Things.”
Suddenly in 2006, they decided to open their very first brick-and-mortar store in the SoHo neighborhood of New York. If you are wondering where their first international store was situated, it was in Japan in the same year.
Ten years later, in 2016, Deckers thought of renaming the brand after all this time.
Since then, the company has been well-known as UGG instead of UGG Australia. The main reason for this was because they were investigated for using the name ‘Australia’ in their brand despite manufacturing sheepskin boots in China and Vietnam.
