Genuine UGG® Boots
Developed in Australia and New Zealand, the sheepskin UGG boot was worn by surfers in the 1960s to keep their feet warm between rides. The boots became popular in the U.S. in the early 2000s when high profile Hollywood stars started wearing them.
Since then, it’s been a challenge to keep the most popular styles of genuine sheepskin UGG boots in stock at the Sheepskin Factory. Several factors contribute to the limited the supply, including:
Sheepskin boots offer year-round comfort. Fleece does a great job of circulating air, which removes moisture, prevents sweating and reduces odor. Because sheepskin is a natural product, it has some irregularities in color and texture, which only add to the beauty and character of the footwear.
About.com () has the following advice on when to wear sheepskin boots:
Sheepskin and UGG boots are a casual type of boot. UGG boots are exceptionally warm and are great for cold weather (up to -30 degrees Fahrenheit) - however, they should not be worn in excessively muddy or wet conditions. If you are looking for warmth while trudging around the house or the city, a sheepskin or UGG boot will be ideal, but if you need a boot for more severe winter weather conditions, you might want to try a pair of snow boots instead.
