In Australia, there are many folklore stories on the origin of the ugg boots, ranging from boots being first used by the pilots in the WWII, to the suggestion that term "ugg boots" generated from the word "ugly". You can read many of these stories on the Internet. Whatever the story is, everybody agrees on one thing - that nothing comes close to the comfort, health benefits and pleasure of wearing genuine sheepskin boots on your bare fit!
The benefits of the sheepskin have been known for hundreds of years. Particularly in the colder climates, humans were making footwear from sheepskins for centuries. Sheepskin is able to absorb sweat at the very fast rate and can submit it into the air seven times faster than synthetics. This allows for your fit to stay dry and reduce moist dump conditions that discourages propagation of bacteria.
All our ugg boots are made in Australia from A-grade premium quality Australian Merino sheepskin. With more than 3000 fibres per square inch, each fibre acting like a mini shock absorber, you'll find it hard to go back to your other footwear.
Sheepskin is gentle on your skin, because it contains lanolin, a basic substance similar to that found in human skin. Sheepskin helps heal sensitive or inflamed skin and rashes. In Australia sheepskin products are widely used in the healthcare industry.
Sheepskin is dirt and bacteria resistant. It has been known for centuries, that lanolin in natural sheepskin provides it with self cleaning qualities.
Sheepskin will not give off an electrical charge. All natural sheepskin is a partial insulator, providing you with undisturbed release of static electricity, created by the natural movement of your body.
Sheepskin is naturally water resistant & therefore small amounts of moisture will not seep through or damage your ugg boots or slippers. We also make available a range of ugg boots care products, designed to protect your footwear from effects of dirt and substances containing fats and oils.
Sometimes even a simple sheepskin innersole for your regular shoes can make all the difference, providing warmth and comfort in addition to their moisture absorbing qualities.
There are evidence, suggesting that contact with sheepskin promotes the blood circulation and activates the immune system, supporting relaxation and renewal of the body.
Whatever the reason you want to use: scientific, therapeutic or fashion, Australian made ugg boots and slippers feel bloody good on your feet!
