HOW WE GOT HERE


Original Deckers striped flip flop.

Built by a collective passion

It was 1973 in Santa Barbara, California, when Deckers Brands founder took a risk, followed a passion and created a new kind of footwear. With its simple, yet innovative striped design, the first Deckers flip-flop took the surf lifestyle market by storm, quickly growing into a mainstream staple.

Over the next three decades, Deckers Brands grew from a single iconic sandal into a global, multi-brand company by seeking out niche brands with a like minded spirit and heritage. Beginning with the acquisition of the UGG® brand in 1995 and continuing with Teva®, Sanuk®, HOKA ONE ONE® and Koolaburra by UGG® , Deckers Brands has grown each brand into a lifestyle leader through innovative design and passionate marketing.
