The Ugg Classic Boots or just Uggs is a generic term for a style of sheepskin boot which has been produced inAustralia andNew Zealand for almost 200 years. Originally the were called “Ug or Ugh Boots” which is short for “Ugly”. However an American Importer (Koolaburra) presented the idea that the name Ugg comes from the way that the boot “hugs” the wearer’s foot and legs. However because of trademark issues, Uggs are more often than not known in the retail world simply as Sheepskin Boots.

Originally inAustraliaandNew Zealandthis comfortable and warm footwear was being worn by social groups such as Bogans, westies and Bevans in public. However, most other Australians would only wear them around the house or at the most just on a trip to the local shop. The boots certainly became popular during the 1960?s with surfers and competitive swimmers as they kept them warm whilst out of the water.

It is thought that many popular Australian actors/actresses have probably being wearing Ugg boots in private for some time, it was only when Pamela Anderson started wearing a pair that she had acquired in Australia to help keep her legs warm during breaks in filming the popular television show Baywatch, that it is thought people in the USA started to take an interest in these boots.
