UGG boots -- or "UGGS" as they are commonly called -- are all the rage these days. The Australian sheepskin boots are soft, trendy, and expensive.

But as one Ohio woman learned, cheap imitation rip-offs are popping up everywhere.

Looking for Discount Boots

Kerry Dalton wanted to buy UGG boots for her daughter, but didn't want to pay $140 or more at department stores. So she found an online UGG store offering big discounts.

She said "I found a site, it looked legitimate, and they said 100 percent Australian made." So she paid $80 plus shipping.

But a few weeks later, Kerry received a tattered brown box, mailed directly from China.

Thin, Poorly Made Boots

Inside there was no UGG box, and no clear plastic bag liner. It simply contained two of the thinnest, most poorly made boots she had ever seen.

The logos were crooked, the soles, thin, stiff and missing the familiar indentations.

She felt the soles and said, "All of this is recessed, where in the real UGGS it's raised."

Adding insult, the instruction sheet even contained several misspellings. It said "avoid leaving boots on furnirure (sic)," instead of "furniture."

Many Other Complaints

Women across the country are reporting similar stories online of paying $75 or more for counterfeits, worth maybe $20 at most.

Lisa Straub is another who fell for the ruse. She received fakes that smelled of dye and were covered with glue.

Lisa said, "You can smell the dye they used to cover the artificial material. On the side, you can see the glue they used to attach it to the sole. On the real UGGS those are stitched."

Neither Lisa nor Kerry were able to return their boots, as the online stores they bought from disappeared.

Avoid a Rip-Off

So don't let this happen to you: Be suspicious of all discount UGG boots online.

Real UGGS:

* Are made of high quality sheepskin * Have wool linings * Have thick, rugged, yet flexible soles * Have a silver hologram label attached (as of October 2010). * They can be made in Australia, New Zealand, or China, so don't be alarmed by a China label, however.

Bottom line: In the US, UGG is a brand name. Any other boots calling themselves UGGS are considered counterfeit.

So shop with care, especially online, so you don't get stuck with cheap lookalikes and so you don't waste your money.

REAL UGGs vs. FAKE UGGs 855023184@deleted Views 83 Like 83 Likes Comments Comment Like if this Guide is helpful Please sign in to like this Guide. Share 6 December 2008 REAL UGGS VS. FAKE UGG BOOTS

 

1-If the price is low is is probably a fake.  Only people who buy from retail stores are allowed to sell on ebay.  Stores that have a contract to purchase from UGG Australia  Deckers  sign an contract to agree not to sell on ebay.  They can lose their distribution rights to sell Uggs if they don't comply. This means that the sellers who are selling authnetic Uggs are buying retail.  You do the math. If you buy retail and also pay tax in some states then your cost is 120 for a classic short and 140 for a classic tall before tax.  Then there are ebay and pay pal fees which amount to 15% of the items cost.  The seller is doing this to make a profit so there is room for that also.   So if you see a boot that is very cheap it is probably a fake. 2-The Care Booklet that comes with the boots is in white. It has the words "Ugg Australia" embossed in silver. This means the letters are raised. You can feel them when you put your finger over them. 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.  As of June of 2007 the Care booklet has been replaced with a cream colored card and an insert also in the beige color.  Ugg no longer puts the white booklet in the box with the boots made after June of 2007. 3-There are sellers in Australia who are selling boots they call UGGs but not made by Deckers.  They argue that the name UGG is generic and not owned by Deckers.  Deckers has a copyright on the name UGG and you can report any seller who says they are selling UGGS but are only selling a boot they call an Ugg from Australia .  There is a report this item button at the bottom of any auction that you can use to report a fake Deckers Ugg. 3-The real uggs have a raised or embossed bottom with UGG written .  The fake ones are smooth and not raised or embossed on the bottom. 4-The fake uggs have very poor quality control and the stitching is uneven on the label. Deckers told me this a few years ago.  I do not know what it is from. 5-You can always ask the seller if they have a receipt from the authorized seller they purchased it from. 6-If the boot is being sold as sent from China it is a fake. 7-Beware of all the China fakes that come onto auction. Usually in a 1 -3 day auction so they are sold before they can be reported and removed. 8-Also many of the fake Uggs from China will have very large shipping fees with a low boot price. 9-The Classic Uggs are made for the last 2 years in China so the label will say made in China on a Classic Tall and Classic Short. The Utlra's are still made in New Zealand. 10-Check the feedback of the sellers but this will not always guarantee a authentic boot as many buyers are fooled and leave possitive feedback.  If you scroll through the feedback you will sometimes find a buyer who realized it was  a fake and reports it in the feedback. 11-The label should be made of material not synthetic and be half way down the inside side of the boot. 12-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 is sellling "authentic" australian uggs and leaves out any mention of Deckers. Email the seller and ask

13-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 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. 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  Classic Deckers UGGS are made in China.  The fake Decker  Classic 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:-     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. Now the Fakes have copied the R also.     7.  Finally, the outside labels are subtly different.  Note how 'australia' is in a bolder font on the fake - which is shown on the left.   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. 10. In the UK there are two main types of fake - the ones with the blue label pinned on and with a dust bag that says "snow boots" and a VERY good fake which has light brown pinned on tags that say "made by CGM Co Ltd". The latter have the correct sole pattern and also the label that says "Made in China". Most purchasers are entirely fooled by this.
