Since humans first cultivated sheep, cultures have made soft sheepskin boots. Their popularity diminished once leather tanning of more durable leather products like cowhide increased. Unlike cowhide, the sheepskin is soft and easily abraded, limiting it to gentle use. Sheepskin boots gained in popularity as a result of World War I and World War II, when they were popular with aviators because of the need to maintain warmth in non-pressurized planes at high altitudes.An exhibit of a WWI aviator's outfit in the Canadian War Museum cites the term "fug" boots. ugg boots sale have also been popular with surfers and competitive swimmers since at least the 1960s, for keeping warm while out of the water. Uggs became ubiquitous among Southern California surfers and Southern California downhill skiers, and from there, ugg were popularized by Hollywood into the American mainstream and later the worldwide market.


Uggs have been identified as a fashion trend for both sexes since the early 2000s. Ugg boots ride the vagaries of fashion trends, with a growth in popularity for men tied to increased celebrity usage (e.g., Leonardo DiCaprio). Men and women especially of college age, teens, and tweens wear ugg with jeans, dresses, shorts and long shirts or sweaters with leggings, footless tights, or knee socks and sometimes without any legwear.


The combination of its soft shank and sheepskin interior means that ugg boots are designed for casual, short-term use, and not for situations which require sturdy, protective footwear, as the design emphasis is on style and comfort rather than protecting the feet, especially women UGG boots, such as UGG classic tall 5815, UGG classic Short 5825, ugg cardy 5819, ugg dakota slippers 5131 and UGG slippers.Cleaning products should never be applied directly to the sheepskin, as this may cause permanent damage.


While in the boot, the sockless foot is in full contact with the sheepskin lining, thereby maximizing the insulative properties of the boot. The mid-calf shaft, while not encasing the entire lower foot in wool, further enhances the thermal qualities of the boot by encasing the ankle and lower portion of the leg. The wide, rounded toebox, wide shaft, and wide heelbox with a heel-less sole enhance comfort by providing a non-constricting space for the foot. The durable sole in the classic Ugg measures at the toe about 1/2 inch, at the arch 3/4 inch, and at the heel 1 inch. The thick padding of the sole increases foot comfort during movement, while the soft shank minimizes the weight of the boot.
