    Ugg boots are soooooo comfy..I could walk around the world in them!

    try calling this place http://www.sohoshoes.com/index.html

    Their located in North Carolina but will ship to you. I recently(maybe 3 weeks ago) purchased a pair of ugg classic short in sand for my sister and the price was $110.

    Ebay is definitely NOT worth it..they sell them for around $300-$400 a pair :wacko:

    As previously hinted at, in Australia and New Zealand sheepskin boots (which have been around down here for decades) are known as ugg boots - we do not differentiate by brand. There just happens to be a brand called UGG but there is little difference between these and other New Zealand/Australian made sheepskin boots - save for the label on the back of the heel!!! For some reason the UGG brand has become a household name outside of Australasia and thus the great demand for them.

    If you don't want to wait until April of this year for UGG stock and are looking for a comfortable sheepskin ugg boot in tan or walnut (baby pink/baby blue coming soon) check out:::

    http://www.miwoolies.com

    Ugg boots for men and women are available - a great range of styles in varying heights with a choice of sole, lace-up ugg boots, ugg boots with possum-fur trim.

    Prices are extremely reasonable - around $US70 for the shortest boot.

    Hope this helps!

    I actually doubt that you'll be able to find any at Nordstrom. I was at the one in Rhode Island last weekend and I over heard a salesperson saying how they maybe have three pairs total in the store. It may just be that store, but I'd guess its pretty similar in the other ones. She also said they won't be getting any until July. Luckily Uggs are supposed to act like Air Conditioners in the summer :D

    I have the sand uggs and I don't know how to clean them. The web site only tells about the protector you can buy, but not how to get them clean. Anyone know what to do? thanks

    i dont know but can i add something else about uggs that I am so pissed off about!? i was sitting with my legs crossed and noticed what I thought was a tear near the heel....and i looked and realized the entire shoe at the heel has torn away from the sole. NICE!!! huh?

    now back to cleaning - i would get some suede/leather cleaner.....

    If they're suede you need a suede brush...if they're very dirty you need to take them to a professional leather-cleaner...

    You buy a suede brush. There are different kinds, but the most common have like thick, folded rubber for "bristles" and some actual bristles at the side so you can reach along the sole or whatever. If you have really bad stains or something, you would probably use a suede "eraser", kind of like a pumice stone.

    You could probably just use a regular shoe brush if they are merely dusty, sort of.

    It is a very good idea to use some kind of spray to make them water and dirt repellant before you ever use them.

    I use a suede brush and it works pretty well. Also, water repellent is used religiously in this house :lol:

    I sprayed mine with waterproofing spray and just tried a suede eraser on mine yesterday - - - it was great! It even got rid of some water stains I had on my boots from last winter.

    :lol:

    It's funny because when UGGs became popular I would get soooooo many Americans coming into work asking if we sell ugg boots - to which I would reply "yes" and then they would get angry because they "weren't real uggs". I had NO idea that there was actually a BRAND called ugg... What's next? Somebody selling socks under the name "Socks" and confusing people everywhere who apparently sell "knock-off" socks???

    does the protector actually work? what brands would you recommend? Does it have to be from "uggs"?
