Ugg boots have been fashionable for decades. From the airmen who wore Uggs to keep as warm as possible during World War I, to the surfers who loved to wear Uggs on the beach, to the fashionable women who started wearing Uggs during their revival in 2003, Ugg fans encompass a vast variety of people.
When people refer to “genuine Ugg boots”, they are usually talking about those made by Deckers Outdoor Corporation, called “Ugg Australia” boots. Many other Australian companies have manufactured sheepskin boots called Uggs, Ughs or Ugs for years, but Deckers Outdoor Corporation claimed the trademark, and are the manufacturers sought after by the fashion-conscious.
Nowadays there are numerous styles of Ugg boots available. Of course the traditional distinctive boot with the top that can be folded either up or down is still hugely popular in a variety of colours. One of the most popular colours of the moment is Raisin, a rich red colour offering a new twist to a popular style. Ugg Australia now also manufacture a vast range of completely different styles. Whether you want leather Uggs, uggs with heels, or something different altogether, there is something for everybody in Ugg Australia’s new lines. Men and children are not left out. There are some very masculine styles available, a range of classic boots in kids sizes, and Uggs for babies which are especially sweet. Most of the current Uggs retain some of the original flavour as they include sheepskin in one way or another.
Sheepskin boots are great for all year round usage, as fleecy fibres inside the boot keep feet warm, while still encouraging air circulation. The only time when it is perhaps inadvisable to wear Ugg boots is during rainy weather. However a gentle wash (not in the washing machine) with cool water should ensure any problems with mud are easily solved. When choosing which boots to buy, it is important to look at a variety of retailers, as prices can vary wildly.
