Why i would you want to buy genuine Ugg boots when there are so many cheap copies on the market? You've seen the saying: You only get what you pay for!

Real Ugg boots are made of twin-faced sheepskin with fleece on the inside and with a tanned outer surface; the top of the boot has fleece on the outside. The sole may be made of rubber or synthetic materials. One of the noticeable features of the Ugg is that the stitching is prominent on the outside of the boot. These days, Uggs are available in many colors: black, chestnut, blue, pink, just to name a few. They are available in both slip-on and lace-up varieties and their height can range from just above the ankle to above the knee.

What really skyrocketed these boots in popularity is the many Hollywood starlets that were seen wearing them ! The mere fact these stars wear Uggs is an unsaid endorsement of the product.


In recent years we have seen a plethora of Ugg-style boots that are fakes; Some of these fakes feature cow leather and various types of fur instead of fleece. There is a single advantage to the imitations: the price is much cheaper. But the quality may very well be lacking! To make sure the boot is a genuine Ugg, it will be double-faced and the two skins will not be glued together. Cowhide suede is used on the outer boot in a lot of the fakes, and they also have lower grade sheepskin glued inside, usually in pieces. When sheepskin is slathered in glue and piece application, pieces often come off on the inside.

The genuine Ugg sheepskins are extra thick, which is highly desireable for a boot. Lower grade sheepskins will be thinner and the boot will not be able to hold it's shape, and wear out much faster.

Note that most of the fakes will use largely synthetic materials. However, many synthetic materials these days look and feel just like real sheepskin! even the wool and suede of sheepskin is copied by modern synthetics. But once you wear them, it will be evident that the fakes are just that; the boots will not be as comfortable as genuine Uggs, and your feet will not be able to breathe, leading to sweaty feet.

Also note that most fake Uggs will have irregular shoe sizing, so a size 9 womens may or may not be a real size 9 womens! Beware of off-sizes with the fake Uggs.
