What in the World Are Ugg Boots and Why Would You Want Them?

Jun 20, 2008
Ugg boots are fast becoming one of the fashion trends of the decade. More and more people wordwide are discovering this simple but effective Australian footwear icon.

What are Ugg boots? Uggs are boots made from pure sheepskin. The outer covering of the boot is the outside of the sheepskin, and the warm woollen part of the skin faces in. This makes for a boot that is extremely warm and is a delight to wear, especially in cold weather like winter. Uggs are also now being made with a second and outer skin of leather that adds to the strength and the durability of the boot.

The Ugg is usually a high fitting boot, mostly coming up above the ankle, and usually much higher. Most Ugg boots are high enough to come up not far below the knee, keeping the entire lower leg warm.

It is also possible to buy sheepskin slippers, these also usually come up just above the ankle, and are also extremely warm, though not technically called Uggs.

Traditionally Ugg boots are worn outside the trousers. And for this reason Uggs are becoming part of the fashion culture. They normally come in the regular sheepskin color, which is an off white or pale color, but dyed versions are also becoming extremely popular. It is now the norm to find Ugg boots in the stores and online which feature a wide range of colors including bright reds and greens or pinks, and all sorts of other bright colors. In the past you had little choice for your Uggs but they are now available in a wide range of colors and styles.

The Ugg boot was a quintessentially Australian product. Australia was said to ride on the sheeps back some decades ago when there were millions more sheep in the country than people, and sheepskin products were extremely common. Sheepskin is an extremely hard wearing and versatile product, and lends itself to production into jackets, boots, seat covers and much more.

Ugg boots were no exception and have been available in Australia for decades, but more recently have become available worldwide. This has resulted in the Ugg becoming a fashion accessory right throughout the world. Women and men worldwide are discovering the delights of this wonderful form of Australian footwear that ensures that you look good while having warm comfortable feet.

The Ugg boot is not a hard wearing boot like a leather boot though, and you need to take a little care with you Uggs. They are a soft boot but made with a hard plastic sole, with the sheepskin sewn onto the sole. The sole is generally hard wearing but the sheepskin sides can be prone to getting dirty very easily, though they can be easily washed.

But as any Ugg devotee will tell you, a good pair of Uggs will be the most comfortable footwear you will ever have on your feet.

Treat yourself to a pair of Ugg boots. They look good, they feel good and they're a taste of Australia.
