There are many ways to tell if a UGG is a fake

1) The bottom of the boot is recessed with the UGG insignia in a Classic tall or short Authentic Ugg. A fake is flat.

2) The seller says they are made in New Zealand or Australia for a Classic Tall or Classic Short. Uggs are Manufactured by Deckers Inc. They have been making them in China for the past 2 years. They used to make them in Australia and New Zealand but have not for 2 years or more. The uggs that are advertised as made in Australia or New Zealand are FAKES. They are not from Deckers Inc. They have copied the label and insignia but they are not from Deckers Inc.

3) They are subject to copywright infringment as only Deckers is allowed to use the word UGG. They have also copied Deckers labels and boxes.

4) The ones that are fake do not have a raised insignia on the bottom of the soles.

5) You can report to UGG Australia any fake ones you see on ebay at info@uggaustralia.com or at the bottom of an auction of a Fake Ugg click on Report this Item.

6) Ugg Australia has required any Authorized Ugg Dealer to promise and sign an agreement not to sell on ebay. If the price is below retail then it is most likey a fake as only Ebay sellers who buy the boots retail are allowed to sell on Ebay. So if theya re buying them retail with tax and having to pay ebay and pay pal fees and they are not seconds and are grade a boots they will be selling for more than retail. Any boots you see being sold less are usually fakes. The price of the boot is a good indicator for a fake.

7) The quality of the stitching on the fakes is very bad.

8) The box is different: Genuine Ugg Box is one piece with a flip open lid attached. It is a strong sturdy box. The words "UGG Australia are wrten in the middle of the lid. The Ugg Logo is a starbust orange sun. It is not big but small. Ugg now as of May 2007 has a new box. It is a flip top box.

9) The Care Booklet that comes with the boots is in white. It has the words "Ugg Australia" embossed and it is square. Fake ones are badly printed and in silver. The pictures in the booklet are sharp and clear. The fakes ones are not. They have been scanned and printed in color and appear fuzzy or unclear. The colors are exaggerated.

10) Fake Uggs do not run a size larger as the real uggs do.

11) Fake Uggs are smaller with a wider ankle.

12) Fake Uggs are taller than real uggs.

13) The heel of a fake Uggs is much narrower than a authentic UGG

14) Some fakes are not sheepskin but wool dyed and will smell of the dye. it smells of paint/lacquer which comes from the dye used on the synthetic materials.16) The UGG label on the rear of the boots is higher up on a fake and the lettering is different from the genuine Ugg. The letters may have gaps between them in the fake in the real they are overlapping.

15) The shape of the front part of the fake ugg is shorter and goes up at more of an angel than the genuine UGG which has a rounder longer finish.


16) The Black Uggs have a black Sole and a Black Label with Ugg in white. The fake have tan soles and a brown label.

17) The sole in a real ugg is flexible. The fakes are rigid.

18) The sole in a real ugg is about a half inch or more, the sole of a fake ugg is very very thin maybe 1/4 inch

19) The height can be either taller or shorter than the authentic Ugg. One classic tall received recently from a fake was 10 inches tall for a size 6 US compared to 12 1/2" 6 US for the authentic UGG. This means that the fake is not much taller than a classic short.

20)The box is different: Genuine Ugg Box is one piece with a flip open lid attached. It is a strong sturdy box. The words "UGG Australia are written in the middle of the lid. The Ugg Logo is a starbust orange sun. It is not big but small. As of April 2007, Ugg is not making the box with a seperate lid. The top of the box is no longer attached to the bottom. There is a big sunburst on top and 'ugg australia'. The side of the lid has www.uggaustralia.com.

21) The fake may have a blue label pinned to it or a brown cloth protection bag which says "Snow Boots" - these are not provided with Authentic Uggs.

22)The font of the inside label on a fake is different from a Genuine UGG. and the outside label will have the 'australia' in a bolder font on the fake . The label inside should say made in China. If it says made in New Zealand or Austraia it is a fake.

23) The selller leaves out any mention of Deckers in his description. He is selling Australian Uggs but not Deckers Uggs. Don't be fooled by this if you want Deckers Uggs. The box used is similar and copies Deckers Box and Logo, but they are not Deckers Uggs. If you email the seller he will tell you that he does not sell Deckers Uggs. An unsuspecting buyer sees authentic and thinks they are getting Deckers . The seller i is sellling "authentic" australian uggs and leaves out any mention of Deckers.

24) Follwoing is a wonderful guide with pictures sent to me by an ebayer who had purchased fakes for his daughter.

There are many fake UGG boots circulating on eBay. Whilst the term UGG is not protected, the UGG boots which are made by Deckers ARE protected. These are the boots which are being faked. Some of the fake UGGS are exceedingly good and even when placed next to genuine ones will take some spotting! This guide will hopefully help you to spot them as many people are being duped


.


1. Most of the fakes are sold from sellers (with either low or zero feedback) in The Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Greece, Italy, Australia and the Czech Republic. The boots are actually in China and they also charge a lot for shipping and normally only accept Paypal. They will also have lots of them for sale. There are however some fakes that are being sold quite innocently in the UK because they were bought from the organised fakers via eBay and they are found to be too small. The fact is the fake UGGS are indeed too small and this is why they are then resold. A fake size 5 (US size 7) is about 1 cm smaller in foot size.
2. The smell of a fake UGG is a give away - it smells of paint/lacquer which comes from the dye used on the synthetic materials. The fake will often have a blue label pinned to it and also a brown cloth protection bag which says "Snow Boots" - these are not provided with the genuine ones!!
3. A genuine Deckers UGG boot has real sheepskin fur on the interior. Its fluffy looking and also thicker and a rich cream colour. The fake uses synthetic 'fur', is slightly grey, thinner and also small pieces of the 'fur' come away when rubbed. Here's the genuine fur on the left and the fake fur on the right:
-


4. Believe it or not, genuine Deckers UGGS are made in China. The fake Decker UGGS always say made in New Zealand or sometimes Australia. Here's the genuine label (for a classic short) on the left and the fake on the right. Also note how the font style for 'australia' is different:-


5. Where the sole joins the heel, the genuine UGG has a flush join. On the fake there is a solid line clearly visible. Genuine on the left, fake on the right:-


6. A genuine Deckers UGG will have an R in a circle next to the UGG on the sole. A fake UGG will not have the R in the circle on the sole. Genuine on the left, fake on the right:-


7. Finally, the outside labels are subtly different. Note how 'australia' is in a bolder font on the fake - which is shown on the right.


8. To my knowledge and indeed from the official UGG website, UGG do not make a CAMEL colour - if your label says 'CAMEL' chances are they are fakes.
9. Finally the price is a huge clue. Genuine UK sourced Decker UGGS are at least £140 - anything substantially less and they are probably fakes. US sourced short UGGS are at least £70 and tall UGGS £85 - again anything less and they will probably be fakes.

I haven't bought a new pair of uggs in a few years. My old tall chestnut ones were getting really worn out so I bought a chocolate pair on ebay. Wish i'd seen this website before. I bought the 8's since i wear a 9 in normal shoes and these are much tighter than in the past. 8s were always fine before as they'd stretch out so much. Also, the inner sole lining? Since when is it a flimsy scrap of wool that comes out so easily?! Did i get ripped off with fake ones?

why are you people so botherd about wether they are fake or not on the brightside if you buy fake ones they are cheaper so you would not be too worried if you got them ruined but the real ones are a bit pricey and you wont be too happy if you ruin them cos they were alot of money for a pair of boots and it wont be too easy to get new ones just like that!!!!!!!!

Nowadays, the most awesome clothes is down jacket which also represents the winter canada goose womens fashion. The crown jewel of Ralph Lauren women swear, its collection makes its dramatic first appearance each season on the runways of New York, providing the fashion world with the season's definitive Ralph Lauren style statement. Some sellers make advertisements online with the genuine UGG pictures but actually their products are not winter boots 2011 the genuine ones. In fact, in real life, as long as the wearing of shoes, you can also have a Barbie doll-like slender legs too! In winter, boots is a good partner winter boots for woman of your legs slightly!

And who said that hues had been closed to girls? North Face coats canada goose chilliwack parka for men are also offered throughout single variations and colors. However, there are downsides to dressing your baby in a snowsuit. Lastly,impress the down jacket out of water and hang it at the ventilated canada goose coats and shade place. It was really a blue day. When you go on the street, you can probably find girls wearing dresses and boots with a wide variety. She is canada goose expedition parka also in a down vest. Faded denim coat has also been popular in recent years. You had better not buy them, since they are so annoying. Second, down jacket of short style is always so cute. Antioxidants help you combat those people nasty small critters. A yellow chamois matched with a pair of trousers that have chequers makes you look slimmer and feminine. It seems that most down jackets canada goose trillium sold in the market is designed for winter. Look at the famous film star in HongKong Fala Chen.

Angellace - there are many authentic australian companies that have been making genuine ugg boots for decades. Ugg is a style of footwear, not a brand, so if you have pure sheepskin, made in australia boots (with the tag "made in australia"), they are not fake. Dont buy anything made in china. Check out the "Australian sheepskin association" (saveouraussieicon) website to see for yourself.
