For nearly a century Australians have been calling their sheepskin boots 'uggs' or 'ugg boots'. Australians always enjoyed the comfort, natural health benefits and pleasure of wearing the genuine sheepskin boots. With time the sheepskin boots, or 'ugg boots' as we call them in Australia, had become a truly Australian icon. In 1960's the iconic Australian sheepskin boots become very popular among young Australian surfing scene.
In 1978, Brian Smith, a young surfer from Australia, travelled to the USA with a few pairs of uggs in his backpack. He set up a company, Ugg Holdings Inc, which was importing sheepskin boots to the United States. In 1995 the USA company - Deckers Outdoor Corporation had acquired Ugg Holdings Inc, and established the USA owned and based brand of boots - 'UGG Australia'.
In Australia 'ugg boots' is not a brand name, but rather the name of a style of sheepskin footwear that had originated in Australia about 100 years ago. There is no question of where 'ugg' footwear style came from, even the USA based and owned company Deckers Outdoor Corporation who mass-produce their ugg boots in China under 'UGG Australia' brand use the name of our country - Australia - in the name of their USA brand, because Australia is the country of origin of 'ugg boots'.
