Buying REAL Ugg boots online in Japan

I did a lot of research online before buying my Ugg boots, and wanted to share some of my new found knowledge!

There are lots of Ugg boots available on Rakuten and Amazon that are advertised really well. They have pictures of real Ugg Australia boots taken from official sites and even information on how to spot real Ugg Australia boots. But after reading some of the reviews it was clear that although some of their shoes may be authentic, some are definitely NOT (their prices are less than other retailers, but not incredibly cheap, leading one to believe that their product could be real!)

So I decided to look at sites that Ugg Australia recommends as authentic dealers. You can find a list of stores on their website (online stores here and offline stores here).

Why not buy direct from the Ugg website/store? You certainly can, but you will always pay full price. Other retailers often have sales, and after a bit of searching, I came across an Ugg authenticated retailer (called Javari) with 20% off their boots (limited time only).

So for those who want to buy Ugg boots and aren`t sure what to look for (if you care if they are real), here are some pictures of a brand new, real pair...

Some differences between real and fake Ugg Australia boots are the box, the packaging (fake ones often come in plastic wrap), the quality of fur and stitching, and the tags.

Real Ugg Australia boots (produced in recent years) come with QR codes and hologram labels (on the box and sewn into the left boot).

If you buy a pair from an un-authenticated retailer, please check their terms and conditions first. I noticed that some of those sites have a no-return policy, so if you take the risk and end up with a pair of fakes, you might have no choice but to keep them.
