Get to know some of the very stylish people in the world of UGG® and see how they’re rocking their favorite spring styles at the office.
This bohemian beauty started as an intern here three years ago after moving from Oregon. Now that she’s the coordinator for our loungewear and apparel, it makes sense that she puts comfort first while exuding that effortless Pacific Northwestern style we can’t help but envy. Lately she’s been roaming the office in the SoCal Collection’s Rella, pairing these Classic-Mini-inspired boots with cute overalls and a hat only she could pull off. But a few things about her might surprise you…
Remember when summer was an escape from the everyday routine? Newsflash: it still can be. Although the season no longer means months away from school and all your regular responsibilities, you do have weekends, and those vacation days aren’t going to use themselves. So there’s no excuse not to get away and have an adventure.
Whether you’re dancing away at Outside Lands, heading to the Hamptons to feel the sand between your toes, running with the bulls in Spain, taking a spontaneous road trip, or just hosting an impromptu backyard barbecue, make sure you’re in good company and rocking escapade-ready shoes that can handle whatever happens next. With lightweight technology, natural materials, and famed UGG® comfort, this season’s styles have you covered. Get ready for the moments that make summer so great.
Welcome to our world. Get to know some of the awesome people behind your favorite shoes, and see how we wear our UGG® shoes to work.
Allow us to introduce Manny. This designer has spent the last six years creating some of our all-time favorite shoes. When he’s not dressing our feet, he’s helping to move them as good times specialist DJ Magneto. In addition to turntables and dance floors all over Santa Barbara, Manny has been rocking the Chester this season, pairing it with the basics, like a classic Levi’s jacket, and more playful—but just as timeless—camouflage prints.
Just north of Santa Barbara and a 10-minute walk to the nearest beach, our headquarters is anything but your typical office. With few walls—most of which are just giant windows—our workspace is open concept, fostering collaboration and making us a pretty tight-knit family. Now we thought we’d open the place up to you. Enjoy a glimpse at the awesome and very stylish people who chose the UGG life…or did the UGG life choose them?
Meet Joharrrah, aka Jo, who started here just over 5 years ago. Now our Product Line Manager for Classic Boots, she’s the mastermind behind all the versions of everyone’s favorite iconic style. This season, she’s favoring the Selene boot and playing up its nautical flair with a striped tee, navy J.Crew blazer, and distressed skinnies. Learn more about this shoe biz professional.
Alicia Rountree and Kenza Fourati know their way around a runway. Models and best friends, they regularly walk in shows at Fashion Week and jet set around the world. However, it wasn’t “the industry” that brought them together.
The duo serendipitously met at Tartinery, Alicia’s Manhattan restaurant. “We were both speaking French, although we’re not French,” explains Kenza. (She is from Tunisia, and Alicia grew up in Mauritius.) Once they began talking, they realized they had friends, trilingualism (Alicia knows English, French, and Creole, and Kenza speaks English, French, and Arabic), a love of travel, and hundreds of other things in common.
Since then they’ve been almost inseparable. “We both love to travel as much as we can,” says Kenza. And, most importantly, they love to travel together. Whether going to the shows at Art Basel in Miami, taking a road trip through California, hitting England’s Glastonbury Festival, doing photo shoots in Mexico and St Barts, or vacationing in France, they enjoy it all the more side by side. “Other people might get sick of each other…not us!” Kenza exclaims.
And thank goodness because that made our spring shoot with them even breezier.
