A Brand Built on Experience
The UGG brand drew inspiration from one of the best places to surf in the world, in the picturesque seaside town of Byron Bay, Australia. During the 1960’s, surfers down at Byron Bay developed a technique which protected their feet during breaks from surfing, which involved them wrapping their feet in sheepskin – keeping their feet and toes warm and dry. One of the surfers, Brian Smith, developed his idea by making boots made from the same material. He then went on to promote his idea at another of the worlds top surf spots, Southern California, in 1978. He chose Southern California as he believed the style of the shoes would fit in perfectly with the relaxed and casual notion of the Golden State. The UGG brand was a hit and quickly became popular amongst those who followed a relaxed lifestyle.
UGG Australia quickly repositioned themselves to become a high-end footwear designer that had a strong celebrity following, landing the brand coverage in the likes of Vogue magazine. Since then, they have enjoyed huge success and expanded their range and now even offer a range of high quality accessories such as bags – which were also proud to stock here at Hurleys.
