How to Make Sure You are Buying Official Ugg Boots

When you set out to find a good deal on Ugg boots, you may be concerned about not getting an official pair. The good news is, there are a few ways to know that you are getting true Ugg boots that are authentic and licensed by Ugg. Here are a few of the things to look for and how to spot ones that are not genuine. Keep in mind that these are the main things to look for to ensure you are getting the Ugg boots you want.

Logo Security

The first thing to check for is the logo security that should be on every pair of official Ugg boots. This security feature is simple to recognize and to ensure is official. The logo will show the Ugg boots name with three sun symbols underneath. The sun symbols appear as black suns. When the boots are turned 90 degrees to the left or right, the sun symbols, which are holographic, will fade to a clear or white. This is a sew- in label and is easy to spot quickly. If this is not on the boots, move on until you find this security logo feature.

"Made In" Labels

When you locate the label that shows the size of Ugg boots you are purchasing, you should see a "made in" label as well. All Ugg boots are made in China. If the label states the boots were made in any other location, they are not real Ugg boots. The labels will appear inside of the boot and may also be on the bottom. Check both locations. If they both say "Made in China", they are official. If they differ or do not say "Made in China", then they are not offical Ugg boots.

Packaging of Boots

Another thing to check is how the boots are packaged. If you buy the boots, and the boots are in a dust bag or brown bag, they are not official. Official Ugg boots come in a heavy cardboard box. The box may be one piece or two pieces, but the box is sturdy and made to hold the boots if they are being stored for a season or longer. The box will also have the Ugg logo on the top of the box and may have licensed wrapping paper on the side to go around the boots.

If you are still unsure if the deal you find is for a genuine pair of Ugg boots, make sure to check the Ugg official site. You can find boots there and make sure the ones you are considering buying match the ones on the official site. You can also go to an official licensed Ugg dealer.
