UGG Boots* originated in Australia and became a firm favourite for surfers in the 60's. They are usually made of high quality sheepskin with a fleece on the inside. This means that they are not vegan-friendly.
The outer surface on the original styles of UGG are tanned, and the sole is synthetic.

Marketplaces, Auction Sites and the likes are awash with fake UGG Boots. We aren't talking about sheepskin boots, but those that have purposely been manufactured to dupe buyers into thinking they are purchasing the real deal.
Here are some tips to help you void buying counterfeit UGG Boots:
- UGGS are no longer made in Australia or New Zealand, and haven't been for a couple of years. If you spot boots that are being sold as 'made in Australia' then see this as a warning sign. Look out for 'made in China' or 'made in Vietnam'.
- Stick with Official Stockists - you can check in the UGG database here*.
- UGG pride themselves in high quality, so check the labels on the heel of the boot, is it poorly sewn on? Check the quality of the Shoe Box, is it made of thick cardboard? The quality of the lining is a biggie, if it isn't luxurious, thick fleecy then chances are you haven't got the real deal.
- Recent UGG Australia Boots have a code on the sewn-in security label, in the left shoe. This can be scanned to verify authenticity.
- Check the sole - Classic UGG Boots have a flexible sole, so if it won't bend at all, then it's likely to be a fake.
Is UGG Australia the same as ugg?
UGG Australia is a brand of UGG Boot. They are not the original manufacturers of Ugg Boots, as in a sheepskin boot. UGG Australia Boots have "UGG Made in Australia" on the heel label, and are made from genuine sheepskin.
UGG Australia is the most popular brand of Ugg Boot in the world. In more recent years, they have been known as just UGG, rather than UGG Australia, this may be because manufacturing is now in Far East Asia, rather than in Australia.
Note, that in 2016, UGG Australia dropped the 'Australia' from their name and are now known as UGG.
What does UGG stand for?
Contrary to common belief, the UGG in UGG Boot, is not short for 'ugly'. It's much more likely that the term 'UGG' was derived from 'fug boots', that were worn by the R.A.F. during WW1.
Fug boots look rather than what we now know and love as UGGs.
Where are real UGGs made?
Genuine UGG Australia boots are made in China, by Deckers Outdoor Corporation, and have been for the last two years. Previous to this, they were manufactured in Australia and New Zealand, as the brand name suggests.
