From simple beginnings rooted in the surf culture, UGG Australia is continuingly expanding and proving that they are much more than just a pair of sheepskin boots. But what it is about the surfing lifestyle that makes it so appealing? It’s the sense of freedom! When a young Australian surfer named Brian Smith made his way to USA back in ‘78 his sheepskin boots were an instant hit with his fellow surfers.
Soon it wasn’t just surfers who were slipping them on. Celebs like Kate Hudson, Pamela Anderson and Cameron Diaz became fans. After that the UGG boot became a world wide phenomenon. But these days the brand is more than just boots. Besides taking inspiration from exotic places the brand’s assortment of footwear has expanded from wedges to slippers.
This Autumn Winter season, UGG Australia is looking to change fashionistas’ minds about its surprisingly attractive boots by launching the Luxury UGG line. As an alternative to standard not-so-attractive (but trendy) boots which exploded in popularity a past couple of years, this line features upscale (and quite nice looking) boots (& matching handbags).
These boots are available in UGG flagship stores and specialty stores. However, be prepared to empty your wallet if you plan to get your hands on some of these babies. Prices for boots range from $500 all the way to mind blowing $1200 (believe it or not). Let us not forget the bags – from $650 all the way up to $2k! The line is inspired by the “Rustic luxury of Italy.”
It’s all about the comfort and how good it feels. And these UGG boots are all about comfortable luxury.
