I would assume that they are authentic. I purchased mine from a store, and they are authentic. They say "Made in New Zealand" in them. There are probably also different variations in the shade of the boot because of the suede exterior. As for the sheepskin, I'd assume that they should all feel the same. I would check for the Ugg tag inside and everything... just to make sure.. and that the soles look the same.

Uggs are made in Australia and New Zealand, and now I believe the USA and China, and I'm sure lots of other places as well. I read a great article about the UGGs brand that has been such a huge success overseas, the name was actually bought by a US company, and now no-one can actually use that particular name, even though uggs are actually a style of boot, like pumps or slides are a style of shoe.

There are many many different manufacturers of ugg boots, none can truthfully claim authenticity of the ugg-boot, only authenticity of their particular brand. IMO, there is no such thing as a 'fake' ugg-boot. We have been wearing them for years in Australia, although the funny thing is, here they are considered the epitomy of dagginess, and nobody likes to admit that they wear them. BTW. I'm not making fun of uggs, I wear them too, I'm just pointing out the funny cultural differences.

Anyway, about your question, Australia and NZ are huge producers of wool, and I guess the company sources their pelts from wherever they can. I heard that they also use pelts from China.

SINK YOUR FEET INTO A PAIR OF THESE COMFY SHEEP LINED AUTHENTIC UGGS, THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL YOU KNOW WHY THEY ARE SO DESIRED. THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE RARE TIMES WHERE I DECIDED TO CHOOSE COMFORT OVER LOOKS AND NO REGRETS!

If anyone in NYC is looking for these Uggs, I found mine at Harry's Shoes on 81st and Broadway about a year ago. I beleive they still carry them. Also try Paragon in Union Square. I also bought knock-offs in pink on www.kidsboots.au. Those are heavenly, not to mention cheaper too..

PinkCouture, I'm not sure if your interested or not but in Regina (where my home is) they have an australian store that sells imitation Uggs, called Wildgoose or osmething similar to that. You could always phone them and ask them to ship them to you if you are interested. Regina, isn't exactly the most fashion forward city in the world so they aren't exactly flying off the shelves. If you cut the tag off, nobody would notice and because they are by an australian company and imported, i'm pretty sure they are good quality. That is, if you want a warm boot. Anyway just a suggestion. If you want the real Uggs, I understand.
