For the first quarter ended March 31, Deckers, No. 170 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, reported:

  • Web sales increased 27.7% to $23.5 million compared to $18.4 million in the first quarter of 2010.
  • Total sales grew 31.4% to $204.9 compared to $155.9 million.

Internet Retailer calculates that the web made up 11.5% of total revenue in Q1, compared with 11.8% in the prior year.

Deckers credits the launch of a new e-commerce site in the United Kingdom and higher demand for Ugg boots for the growth in web sales. “We delivered a good start to the year,” says CEO Angel Martinez.
