Contrary to common belief, UGG is an American company with Heavy Australian DNA and influence.
Hailing from Southern California, the brand would begin making shoes in 1978.
From here numerous milestones and innovations would push them to be one of the most recognizable brands today.
The story starts with an Australian who had a passion for surfing. This young man understood the beneficial properties of sheepskin the rest of the world would soon embrace.
Over several decades of growth, expansion and and increased customer base, UGG would gain widespread recognition. Today the brand has stores in several continents around the world from America to Europe and even in China.
Mens UGG boots and shoes are known for quality, durability and for being extremely comfortable. UGG also offers slide and thong sandals in leather or synthetic materials. By using waterproof leather and UGGpure wool lining, UGG is able to do what other boot companies cannot. They produce high quality footwear that simply lasts comfortably.
Combining traditional materials such as leather and wool with new technologies like Vildona and their Treadlite outsole, UGG brings to market a unique solution to men’s footwear we appreciate.

Navy Men’s UGG Trent Quilted Shirt Jacket Review
UGG may be a global brand now, but it has always stayed true to its SoCal roots by providing clothes and shoes that combine casual, comfortable looks with sturdy, dependable practicality. The Australian-American company always crafts a carefully-designed throwback to a simple, relaxed day at the beach in every piece, and the Trent Quilted Shirt Jacket is a perfect example of this comfortable and sensible blend of styles.
The Trent Quilted Shirt Jacket comes in a dark blue navy color, with a front button closure and lined pockets. The fabric is soft and easily wearable, already broken in for a comfortable, relaxed fit. The quilted outer lining makes it a great choice for layering during the winter, or wearing between seasons during the spring and fall, when the weather’s only just beginning to change. The interior lining is made of a soft, pre-washed jersey fabric that will make this jacket feel just like your favorite old t-shirt.
Great for everyday use, the shirt jacket is built to last for ages, which makes it a good staple to add to your wardrobe. The lightweight construction and warm fabric also make it a good choice for outdoor living. Perfect for hitting the trails or for an early morning on a foggy beach, the Trent shirt jacket provides a warm outer layer that can be adapted to hotter days with the greatest of ease. Try layering it under a heavier jacket on cold days, or wearing it over a light t-shirt when you’re headed out for an all-day hike.
The stylish design and quality construction means that it’s just as well-suited for a day up in the mountains as it is for hitting a bar with some friends once you’ve come back down the mountain to rejoin the rest of the world.
Chestnut Men’s UGG Avalanche Butte Boot Review
More than 40 years ago, an Australian surfer on the Southern California coast launched a line of comfortable, hard-working boots that were as perfect for the beach as they were for the trails and mountains beyond. Now, UGG is an international company that has gained global recognition, with multiple high-fashion designs and product lines that have turned heads the world over. However, UGG has always remained true to its roots, and the sturdy, dependable Avalanche Butte Boot shows that they still know how to make the perfect shoe for your outdoor lifestyle.
The Avalanche Butte Boot features the classic UGG design, but with a sturdy twist that makes these boots the perfect fit for a hard day of hiking or mountaineering. The reinforced rubber sole protects your feet against the roughest trails, and the wool-lined interior helps keep you warm even during the coldest days.
The shoe’s exterior is military-grade leather, waterproof and hard-wearing, but still slim-cut and with a classic, streamlined design that makes these shoes just as comfortable out on the trails as they are out for a night with friends. With a pull loop at the back and a simple lace-up design at the front, these boots are as attractive as they are durable, and can be worn in nearly any situation for a casual, easy-going look.
At its heart, the UGG brand has always been about function. Even as the company has grown and evolved into a high-fashion brand with designers in Paris, Italy, Tokyo, and Beijing, they’ve stayed close to their Southern California roots and built their brand around shoes that are meant to be worn outdoors. The Avalanche Butte Boot provides the perfect example of shoes that combine those high-fashion elements with the strength, practicality, and durability that has always been UGG’s style.
