There is a good chance that UGGs are the most comfortable boots in the world. The originals made from 100% merino wool, the authentic brand-name UGGs have taken the world of cozy and fashionable footwear by storm. Although they may seem like a recent revolution, the Australian 'uggs' style dates back 200 years, and there is a reason that they have lasted so long. UGG became a brand name in the late 1970's, when Brian Smith imported the boots and set up his own line, quickly gaining popularity with the California surf community, as the boots kept surfers warm when they got out of the water. UGG's status picked up speed in 2003 when super-star Hollywood icons began donning UGG boots in public, thus popularizing the once obscure style. The company has gained increased momentum ever since. UGG now has countless stylish boot and slipper options for men, women and kids, and has expanded its line into several unique styles and color ways, suitable for both winter and summer wear.
While the UGG line continues to offers more selection every season, the comfort value has remained the same high standard. Whether trekking around in a mountain town in the Adirondack Tall boots, taking it easy in a pair of furry Coquette Slippers, or staying traditional with the Women's Ultimate Short boots, you'll realize that authentic UGGs are set apart from their numerous knock-offs by their quality and cozy-factor. UGGs are not just for slipping out to the store anymore.
Altrec.com carries a wide range of UGG styles, including casual walking shoes, clogs and slippers, and of course, the trademark sheepskin boots, including the Roslynn, Ultimate Tall Braid Boots, and the Delaine. Keep it professional with the Women's Bettey shoes that are perfect for a long day at the office, or go for the Evera Sneakers, a classic sporty look with a unique textured upper. Classic Argyle knit boots offer a new hip design that go with just about anything.
Don't let another season go by without treating your feet to an UGG massage.
