Why are you reporting this puzzle?
The UGG brand is best known for its distinctive sheepskin boots and originated in Australia. The unisex sheepskin and fleece footware called UGG boots, or simply Uggs, gained popularity in the 1960s when competitive surfers in Australia began wearing them. One of those surfers, Shane Stedman, quietly trademarked "ugh-boot" and, later, "ugh," and then sold the rights to fellow surfer Brian Smith, who began selling the boots in Southern California. UGG boots have been a style staple since they first appeared on Oprah Winfrey's show in her second edition of "Oprah's Favorite Things" in 2003, in which she purchased over 350 shoes for her staff and audience.
