January 20, 2012

UGG® Australia invites artists to unleash their creativity on a pair of signature UGG® boots in the ninth annual 'Art and Sole' charitable contest.

The winner, chosen by the brand, will have their design produced and sold in UGG® Australia retail stores & online across the US in 2012.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the boots will be donated to 'The Boys and Girls Clubs of America'. To keep the holiday spirit alive, UGG® will also be accepting donations for 'The Boys and Girls Clubs of America' at all domestic retail locations from November 25 to January 8, 2012.

The UGG® Australia story began in 1978, when a young surfer from Australia took a trip to the United States with a bag full of sheepskin boots. Since that time, UGG® has built a reputation as a global luxury comfort brand by using only the finest materials in the world, employing the highest standards of craftsmanship and delivering new and innovative styles well beyond the original sheepskin boots. UGG® Australia footwear, outerwear, handbags, and cold weather accessories continue to raise the bar in comfort and luxury for women, men, and kids. Be sure to follow UGG® on Facebook or Twitter, and for more information, or to shop any time, visit our homepage.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America is a place where lives are saved and great futures begin. Boys & Girls Clubs of America believe that every child can achieve a great future and that together we can help them get there. Each donation from you opens the door to a great future for the 4 million young people Clubs serve. GREAT FUTURES START HERE. Greatfutures.org.
