That being said, DECK has a good line of products that includes luxury footwear, handbags, apparel, and cold weather accessories under the UGG brand name. It offers open and closed-toe outdoor lifestyle footwear, multi-sport shoes, light hiking shoes, amphibious footwear, and rugged outdoor travel shoes under the Teva brand name.
It also has an action sport footwear under the Sanuk brand name, high-end casual footwear for men and women under the TSUBO brand name, outdoor performance and lifestyle footwear under the Ahnu brand name and work footwear under the MOZO brand name.
