Evoking a broad spectrum of life in California, from beach, to mountains, and coastal cities, the collection epitomizes a relaxed, natural lifestyle that's marked by effortless luxury. Born on the beach and refined in the city, the limited-edition line offers relaxed comfort with a sartorial spin. "The collection celebrates our early days of surf, sand, and an appreciation for craftsmanship and heritage," says Rob Koenen, Vice President of UGG® for Men. "Est. 1978 pays homage to the original boot which was and still is handcrafted in the same way surfboard shapers meticulously refined longboards in the early days. Every design detail was thoughtfully considered from rich, premium leathers to detailed construction in the U.S. This collection celebrates the same dedication to craftsmanship and luxury that defined us back in 1978 and continues to distinguish UGG today." Touting expert craftsmanship and premium materials, the collection offers bespoke detailing and impeccable construction. Rich leathers, soft suedes, and merino sheepskin combine in classic silhouettes that offer the same warmth and comfort as the original icons with sophisticated, upscale styling. Partnering with a local, Southern Californian artisan, one-of-a-kind belts are crafted by a third generation leathersmith. Similarly, rugged rucksacks and hearty weekender bags offering a lifetime guarantee are made in America in conjunction with Bucheimer NYC, one of the oldest leather brands in America.
