About UGG

HouserShoes.com is an Authorized Online UGG Retailer

Born of a long standing tradition on the Down Under beaches of Australia and New Zealand. UGG boots didn't hit the United States until the late 1970's, when a young Australian surfer named Brian Smith brought some of the boots from his homeland to sell on the beaches of California to the thriving surf community.

Over time, UGG has grown from a small surf brand to a global leader in high-quality, sheepskin footwear. In addition to boots, UGG also manufactures slippers, casual footwear, handbags and other products made from the same fine Australian sheepskin that those Down Under have been using for centuries.

Essentially, they started life as a bulky sheepskin boot with a wool interior, including a ring of wool around the top to help keep the wearer’s feet warm; even in the coldest weather. Since freezing weather is a feature of Australian winters, a warm boot is needed to withstand the cold. But why the name?

UGGs are so famous, that Oprah Winfrey once featured them on her talk-show. Legend has it that UGG boots got their name because many people referred to them as "ugh," which is a slang term for ugly; quite a catchy name which has lent to the sustaining fashionable yet functional boot we love and know today as simply, UGG. UGG Boots flew high during World War I, when they were popular as flying UGG boots or FUGGs and were worn by pilots to keep their feet warm high in the sky. Amelia Earhart the famous fashionable female pilot may have dawned UGGs. By the late '60s, surfers were wearing them to keep warm by the sea. By this point, UGGs were being produced throughout Australia. Helping to increase the boot’s popularity, in 1994 New York Times Journalist, Timothy Jack Ward refers to the boots as "ughs", explaining that it's Australian slang for the sheepskin booties that surfers use to keep their feet either warm or cool.
