+Alex Beauchamp This made me tear up because I miss Ray so much to this day and it still breaks my heart he's gone... but it thrilled me so much to hear his voice again and his passion come through the video.

thanks. this was such a wonderful treat. I hadn't seen this before.

Love the look & feel of this video. 
 
To tell the story of the Chester with TWINSOLE and its evolution from idea to shoe, we asked our Director of Footwear to narrate his story on how the Chester evolved and teamed with illustrators to create the visuals for our stop-motion film. 

We chose to film in stop-motion, because it gave the video a hand-made feeling that connected with the craftsmanship that goes into every UGG shoe. We also used a flipbook, or in this case, a flipping sketchbook. An image in a flipbook is constantly evolving, but tells one cohesive story. Just like the story behind the Chester with TWINSOLE.

Some people are surprised to know that UGG Australia started out as a men’s brand. We built our reputation for excellent craftsmanship with classic slippers and then evolved into sturdy, comfortable outdoor shoes. The Chester with TWINSOLE takes the best qualities of the #UGG4Men line of shoes and combines them into one stylish outdoor shoe for a variety of occasions.

Amish settlements have become a cliché for refusing technology. Tens of thousands of people wear identical, plain, homemade clothing, cultivate their rich fields with horse-drawn machinery, and live in houses lacking that basic modern spirit called electricity.

But the Amish do use such 20th-century consumer technologies as disposable diapers, in-line skates, and gas barbecue grills. Some might call this combination paradoxical, even contradictory. But it could also be called sophisticated, because the Amish have an elaborate system by which they evaluate the tools they use; their tentative, at times reluctant use of technology is more complex than a simple rejection or a whole-hearted embrace.

What if modern Americans could possibly agree upon criteria for acceptance, as the Amish have? Might we find better ways to wield technological power, other than simply unleashing it and seeing what happens?

What can we learn from a culture that habitually negotiates the rules for new tools?"

Whenever you are faced with a choice between liberty and security, choose liberty. Otherwise you will end up with neither. People who sell their souls for the promise of a secure job and a secure salary are spat out as soon as they become dispensable. The more loyal to an institution you are, the more exploitable, and ultimately expendable, you become…You know you have only one life. You know it is a precious, extraordinary, unrepeatable thing: the product of billions of years of serendipity and evolution. So why waste it by handing it over to the living dead? –George Monbiot

"I do not choose to be a common man…it is my right to be uncommon—if I can…I seek opportunity—not security…I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed… to refuse to barter incentive for a dole… I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence, the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopias….” - Peter O'Toole. One of my favourites, passes.
