Without the reinforcement, slippers and mules generally feel slightly larger than a boot of the same size. We usually advise our customers to go one size smaller than their normal shoe size when purchasing our sheepskin slippers.
Since 1974, UGG has had a “Made in Australia” sewn-in label on every pair we make. If your sewn-in label says ‘Made in Australia’ then you have purchased a genuine pair of Australian UGG boots.
UGG® mass produces its UGGs and its products are readily available worldwide. We cannot expand overseas under the “UGG” name as the trademark of the word UGG is held by UGG® or Deckers Outdoor Corporation in most countries.
Depending on use and care. If you only wear them indoors, you should get a few years of use. We’ve seen people bring us 10 years in their boots that are still in great condition. There is no need to buy a new pair if your insoles go flat, this is normal as most of the pressure goes to the soles.
Classic UGG boots (which is what you imagine when someone says UGGs) run large, so you should buy new UGGs half to one size smaller than your typical size. That’s because they’re made from a lambskin material that’s known to stretch over time.
These slippers have a sheepskin upper and are lined with shearling for an ultra-soft, luxurious feel. The cork-infused rubber outsole makes them durable enough to wear inside and outside.
Due to the sheepskin/fur lining, skin infections such as athlete’s foot and dermatitis can also be a problem with over-wearing UGGs. Because bare feet can really sweat in the plush fur, podiatrists advise wearers to wear socks and spray the insoles with an antifungal spray once a month!
One of the reasons Uggs are so popular in the first place is that they’re so comfortable, you almost feel like you’re walking around in a pair of high-quality slippers Only you can wear them outside the home.
Check Official Security Label
If you check UGG boots for security labels sewn in, you will find them on the inside of the left boot, shoe or slipper.
Outside Australia and New Zealand, UGGs are manufactured by Deckers Outdoor Corporation – a US-based company with manufacturing sites in China and Vietnam.
UGG actually stands for ugly. Or like most would when they see her “ugh”. Although people no longer think of U.G.G.s as ugly, there was a time when this was true.
The height of the boot can make an already questionable shoe that much worse. UGGs that are too short make even short legs look awkward. When shopping for UGGs, stick to the Classic Tall. Mid-calf is pretty universally flattering and it doesn’t look like you’re about to turn your ankle.

This is one of the most frequently asked questions about UGG boots: Should UGGs be worn with or without socks? The truth is that genuine UGG boots (made from genuine Australian sheepskin) should never be worn with socks, and with very good reason.
The best way to check your size is to measure it! Stand on a piece of paper directly against a wall. Have someone mark the top of your upper and the back of your heel, and then measure the distance between those two points. This will give you a much more precise and accurate measurement!
If you just do a routine cleaning, all you need is a damp cloth to clean the sheepskin lining inside your Uggs. Use the damp cloth to thoroughly scrub the inside of your Ugg boots or slippers and allow them to air dry for 24-48 hours, depending on how long it takes for them to dry completely.
Initially, your UGGs should feel tight and snug at the toes – which means your toe should be very close to the top of the boot without curling – and shouldn’t slip at the heel when you go.
