About UGG Boots
Functional footwear packing a fashion-forward punch, UGG boots began as a strictly utilitarian choice in the early 20th century. Warm and practical, these boots became an international fashion sensation in the 1990s and early 2000s and have deep roots in the surfing and bohemian subcultures. At first, these unisex boots shared a common basic design: a brown tanned hide outer layer, sheepskin inner lining, and synthetic sole. Once these boots made the jump onto the runway, however, a variety of new looks emerged. Now, men's women's, and kids' UGG boots span across a variety of styles and come in colors like pink, blue, and purple. UGG enthusiasts can find everything from ankle boots to mid-calf length boots to women's UGG boots embellished with extra fleece, sequins, or embroidery. The sellers on eBay carry a huge inventory of new styles and classics from seasons past. Used as slippers in Australia, comfy and convenient footwear among the Southern California surfer subculture, and a no-nonsense cold-weather boot by many others, UGG boots represent an investment in both fashion and function.
