Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: UGG Women's Bailey Button Boot (Apparel)
First time buying Ugg! After reading a review about this not being original/genuine UGG boots, I went to the UGG Australia website and they have a couple of clues on how to detect whether or not you're buying the real thing. I check my boots and this ones have the 3D Logo tag next to the size/product tag inside the left boot,so far seems like this are the real ones. Also the box has a 3D sticker next to the size sticker, again seems like they're real. It would be terrible to find out this are counterfeit.I did enter the seller name on the UGG Australia website to find out whether or not they're authorized retailers, AMAZON it is but the seller is not. I read a review about this boots being made in China not Australia and my boots say Fabrique in Chine and state genuine sheepskin. I just saw a couple customer photos here and I have to say that my boots didn't come with a tag attached to the button and the tag sewn on the back of the boot is not dark color but all the UGG boots I've seen have a light color tag. I'm going to post my own pictures so you can have an idea on how the 3D sticker looks like. Also I purchased a pair of extra UGG insoles just in case and they come in a plastic bag with a UGG tag. This insoles have a sticker on the back saying that it is REAL FUR FROM LAMB, THAT THE FUR HAS BEEN DYED AND TREATED AND THAT THE FUR IS FROM AUSTRALIA AND THE PRODUCT IS MADE IN CHINA, HAS A RN # AND A PRODUCT#. Personally I think they real and the fact that they're made in China is no surprise since they pay lower labor costs. If you have any other concerns you can chat live with an Ugg customer service representative. The 4 stars is because I'm 6.5 -7, ordered a 7 and feels a little loose, they don't make half sizes so the size 6 would be too small.
12/15/2012 I sent an email to UGG Australia! They emailed me back saying that they stopped manufacturing UGG boots in Australia and they are now being made in CHINA. Just to clarify since I read a review saying that original Ugg are made in Australia. Labor cost I guess!
