I spent several days researching the right pair of boots. I narrowed it down to UGGs which had very positive reviews but were pricey, and EMUs which seemed to be basically the same product for half the price. Sounds too good to be true? It is.

Here is what I found:
- UGGs are made of sheepskin inside and out, and cost $130-$160 for
the most popular type (called Classic, short or tall), more for the
"fancier" varieties (but I honestly prefer the look of the Classic
model)
- EMUs have TWO types of products: (1) sheepskin inside and out, and
(2) cowhide outside, merino wool inside. The first variety cost the
same as the UGGs, the second one (not as cozy, not as comfi) cost
about half the price

So, I went with the UGGs which appear to be the more original/popular and am VERY VERY happy - these boots really insulate you from the harsh cold completely. Happy feet are worth the $$ for me in thise case. I got the tall variety in grey, and LOVE LOVE LOVE them.

Another misconception that I'd like to correct - NEITHER is 100% waterproof - as in they'll basically keep you warm and dry in a reasonable amount of rain/snow, but if you drench them it will show (common sense). UGGs has real waterproof models which are more like regular snow boots etc. UGGs also has a water-resistant treatment to improve the durability, but friends I spoke to didn't do that and haven't had any water seeping in when she's worn UGGs in the rain.

So basically, the real deal sheepskin product costs the same (and is similar in quality, comfort).

I had such a hard time figuring this out - shame on all the websites for sneakily pretending that the cheaper EMUs are made of the same material, which they are not!

I fell in love with my Uggs the moment I slipped them onto my feet for the very first time. They are wonderfully comfortable & very warm. No, your feet won't sweat in warm weather, I promise. Most comfortable fit shoe of my life. I wear them at least 6 days a week! **Be sure to order a size down from your normal shoe size. I'm normally a 6, but I bought a 5.** Wear these withOUT socks and they feel like heaven. Wearing them with socks is bulky & well, they weren't meant for sock wearing. Cave in & buy them, it'll be the best $139 you've ever spent!!! Stuck on what color to get? Black turns your feet black. The dark tan is hard to match things with. The sand is perfect for everything!! Put them under your pants, or over.. they go perfect with any day's outfit or weather :)

So I bought these Uggs and I love them they're nice, warm and comfortable. While spraying the shoes I noticed the made in China label and paused... I thought Ugg boots were made in Australia?! Puzzled because the boots are nice and I bought through an awesome authorized seller ( thank you Snow River)! I decided to do some online research and boy did I learn a LOT! The best way to sum it up is:

* I prefer the" Ugg made in Australia since 1974* brand over "Ugg Australia" manufactured in China. I own both brands and the Australian ones are better and are holding up much better than the Chinese product. The wool also is much softer and looks better. I also purchased a pair from Mortels and they too are softer and hold up much better than "UggAustralia"

But I thought UGGs made elsewhere were all Fakes?!

That is a lie. IF your boots were manufactured in AUSTRALIA is made up of Australian wool, shearling, sheepskin and EVA they ARE GENUINE UGG BOOTS! UGG is just a generic term for the style of shoe that is common in Australia. Australian Uggs are NOT associated with the brand UGG Australia ( the current UGGs you find here on Amazon).

The Ugg boot war
Decker Outdoor Company manufacture THE BRAND "UGG Australia". Deckers is a USA Company and all of their boots are MASS PRODUCED IN CHINA! So look for the MADE IN AUSTRALIA symbol (a yellow kangaroo hopping in front of a green triangle which the Australian government approved ), IF you want genuine made in Australia, assembled in Australia using Australian wool UGGs. IF you want the Deckers USA Ugg Australia boots that everyone here is familiar with, buy them from an AUTHORIZED seller here on Amazon. A list of authorized sellers may be found on the company website. Snow River for example, is an authorized seller.

I was disgusted with everything I learned about the UGG wars and have purchased my second pair of UGGs DIRECTLY from Australia through this company Uggs Made In Australia Since 1974. google them. you can also Google UGGs Made in Australia to find other Australian based Ugg companies.

These boots are amazingly comfortable. I bought mine in sand, which seems to go with everything. I normally wear a size 9 or 9.5, but ordered these in 8; they fit perfectly. Treat these with the protective spray BEFORE ever wearing them. I put three coats on my before wearing, and they still look like they are fresh out of the box. Worth the money.

I purchased these boots around Christmas. I am uneasy about ordering items not from the official site especially UGGS because of the fake ones being passed around. I feel the UGGS I received from this retailer were fake. The tage was not the same as the official UGGS because I compared them. The boot itself quality was terrible they did not fit and anyone knows UGGS can confirm you have to order a size smaller otherwise your foot will swim in them. The UGGS I ordered which were a size small just like my other pairs were to small and tight. The quality was poor comparible to fake ones from that of Target. The inside of the boots were not thick and soft like authentic UGGs they were rough and thin. My mother took one look and said "no way are they authentic just look at your other pairs." She is absouletly 100% correct. So, the reasons for me believing they are fake are the tag is different, there is no sticker on the box, the outside and inside quality are very poor, they are very small I would need a size 9 instead of an 8 and all my others are size 8 and fit perfectly, and the card UGGs provide to prove authenticity were not in the box and the shiny UGG sticker was not on the box also the UGGs box from the UGGs website is smaller then this retailer's. I'm not sure if the retailer is aware of this but unfortunately I will never purchase from them again. There is no comparing the items. I don't like giving negative reviews because I've always been very satisfied with Amazon.com and their retailer's but now I am going to think twice and just stick with official sites or go directly to the store.

For me the advertising on this product is misleading.It leads you to believe that the product is made in Australia when in fact the boots are a product that is made in CHINA which is stated on the box when you get them.The fact that there made in CHINA is not important unless you, as I do consider CHINA made goods of inferior quality.This is a very expensive boot but it's badly constructed.Dollar for dollar you can do much better with a less expensive boot like an EMU or BEAR which I have also purchased.The name is what your paying for, this is not a top end elegant product,it is of NEW YORK street corner knock off quality.This is unfortunate because at one time, years ago this was an excellent boot that was well constructed it had a hand made attention to detail quality to it, now it's just a high priced boot thats selling on past popularity. Thats my opinion and I'm stuck with it.

Loving my new UGGs! And, the best part is that if you wear a US women's size 7 or less, you can purchase children's sizes and save $50.00. I normally wear a size 6 and purchased the children's size 6. I probably could have purchased the children's size 5 instead as the size 6 are roomy. A friend who wears a size 7 fits into the children's size 6 perfectly! UGGs are great! They are comfortable and toasty and your feet just slide right into the soft shearling lining. I treated them with a rain and stain protector to keep them in great shape. What a bargain!!!

Being a female college student, I felt a necessity to own a pair or two of Uggs. Everybody wears them, but after my first winter in Michigan, I don't really understand why. Although they are super warm, they aren't waterproof (sucks for slushy days and wet snow), they don't have good traction (difficult to walk on snow and ice), and being made of sheepshin, they're difficult to clean. The salt put on the roads here damages them. I own the Ugg cleaning/care kit, and even that isn't enough to keep my Uggs looking good.

I wouldn't recommend these for anyone who lives in a snowy place. Invest in some real snowboots.

I ordered three pairs of Ugg's from Amazon this winter. Two pairs that I received were authentic and one pair were fake. The fake Ugg's had the holographic tag, came in a box with a holographic sticker, and with packing and materials identical to the authentic Ugg's -- the only way I was able to tell the fakes were that they absolutely REEKED. The boot itself smelled fine, like sheepskin, but the soles smelled VERY strongly of new plastic or chemicals. I could smell it before I'd even pulled them out of the box. Real Ugg's do not have this smell. Go to any fine department store and smell for yourself. If you receive Ugg's and the soles smell strongly of paint/chemicals/plastic... return them, they are not authentic. If you are familiar with those foam rubber jigsaw puzzle pads they make for babies... it's that kind of smell.
At the time I purchased the boots, Amazon was not an authorized seller of Uggs (apparently they now are), however a number of the marketplace sellers on the site are. If you visit Ugg's website, you can find a list of authorized sellers. Unfortunately, as I discovered, several sellers on Amazon are using names very similar to authorized vendors but are not actually that vendor. So be careful. Some of these folks selling the fakes are still charging $180 for the classic tall. You will not find authentic Ugg's on sale, reduced, or anything like that at any authorized site. If you want real Ugg's be prepared to pay full price for them or end up with fakes.

The AUTHENTIC Ugg's I received were both from Shoe Central out of Ashland, Oregon -- they ARE an authorized dealer. I love my Ugg's. I waterproofed them and that worked well for walking in heavy snow. My toes were toasty warm. Very comfortable. I'm very happy!

These are great boots! I spent 3 months trying to decide whether or not to purchase them, and I am sure glad I finally made the investment. I normally wear between a 9 and a 9.5 shoe, but I ordered the 8 because I read they will stretch and mold to your feet. They fit perfectly! MAKE SURE to order the cleaner, I didn't and mine got dirty the first day so it was a little harder to clean because of that.

Great shipper too. I had my shoes in a matter of a couple of days!

Enjoy!
