UGG got their start in 1978 when Australian surfer Brian Smith wanted to design a product with his favorite material – sheepskin. At first it was just their classic boot, and now decades later they’ve expanded to include many styles of boots and slippers to keep you cozy no matter the season.
Not just for the winter months, UGG quickly became a popular beach culture brand in California, and is one of the most popular slipper and boot brands in Canada. For the frosty months, their winter boots continue to be a cold weather staple with plushy wool linings and durable leather uppers.
Sustainability in style
At UGG they follow the 3 P’s - people, planet and products. Diversity and inclusion are at the forefront of their products and campaigns, by advocating for their employees and community, they ensure that everyone feels represented and employees are empowered.
In a step towards acknowledging the Earths finite resources, they use sheepskin sourced from farms that practice regenerative agriculture. And to ensure every part of their products is responsibly sourced, leather used in their footwear products is sourced from Leather Working Group tanneries.
