Uggs in America

You don't have to book a trip to Australia if you're interested in getting Ugg boots. Over about the last 30 years, sheepskin Ugg boots gradually became more know in the U.S. as more and more people became aware of their special properties, comfort and warmth. A variety of Australian sheepskin boot companies established representatives in the U.S. to show off their sheepskin boots and slippers and try to build a market with their Uggs. They slowly evolved from the beaches to the ski areas and finally into the world of the mainstream fashion consciousness. Sheepskin's versatility shows that it is not just for surfies anymore mate. In fact, Uggs are worn by many women, including numerous Hollywood starts. This has led to a wide range of fashionable styles including Classic Tall and Classic Short Uggs, Ultra and Essential soled tall and short boots as well as exposed fleece accent boots.
