UGG History

Ugg logo

UGG was founded in 1978 by Austrailian surfer  Brian Smith and his friend Doug Jensen in Santa Monica, California. Smith and Jensen first applied to be the United States distributors for the Western Australian sheepskin boot manufacturer, Country Leather. Unhappy with the quality of the boot, Smith decided to remodel the boot with improvements. He called it UGG and with an investment of $20K from family members, the company was in business. They sold 28 pairs in their first year.

Jensen sold his share to Smith the following year. The company struggled for a bit, until their boots were worn by the US Olympic Team in 1994. In 1995, Deckers Brand acquired the company for $14.5 million. Deckers began to expand the company internationally and experienced double-digit growth in the late 1990’s, but when the boot was featured on Oprah’s “Favorite Things” episode in 2003, the company had a staggering amount of growth, causing them to open a store for the first time in the SoHo district of New York.

While the company announced in early 2018 that they had reached revenue of $1.5 billion, investors are concerned that the brand is no longer popular and that the lack of diversification will cause problems in the near future. Uggs models

UGG products, since they are made from animal skins, have been the subject of boycotts from various animal rights groups including PETA and the Animal Liberation Movement.

Headquarters for UGGS is located in Goleta, California.

In 2016 I purchased boots from the Woodbury Commons Outlet for $165.00
In the beginning of this year, the boots did not withstand a rain day, and the right boots opened on the side of the soles. It seems to me that the lifespan of an UGG boot should not be only 2 years of minimal wear. Because I have a home in Fla also, I do not wear the boots regularly, so it becomes only fair that I should received a refund (and I shall send back the boots to you on my dime) OR a new set of boots.

I would gladly send you pictures of the faulty boot whenever you say, but this EM does not allow for pictures.
Thanking you in advance for your immediate attention regarding this matter.

I have a pair of western-type Ugg boots which I used to love! I have not worn them more than a dozen times at the most. The sole on one of the boots became separated from the boot and the other one was starting to separate. I contacted Ugg either to send them in for repair or have them pay for the repair. I was told I could send them in, they would determine if they were defective, and refund my money, but they would not repair or pay for the repair. I asked via the website several times. I then took them to my local shoe repair and had them fixed. the shoe repair guy said they were not stitched at all and not glued properly. He glued and stitched at a cost of $50. Said mine were not the first he has fixed for this issue. He said poor manufacturing quality. Ugg would not do anything for me. I will NOT be purchasing ever again nor will I purchase for my children.
