|Darling||Suede ankle boots with scalloped collar binding and laser-etched heel logo.|
|Noira||Waterproof with a heritage feel, Noira boots are crafted from full-grain leather and super-soft sheepskin.|
|Mens||UGG Australia’s range of men’s boots continues to grow in popularity thanks to regular celebrity endorsements and a change of attitudes towards the brand.|
The Colours of UGG BootsUGG boots are available in light sandy shades to deep black tones. Unless you’re going for a waterproof style, the suede uppers of Classic designs can be prone to fading and staining.
Going Light – Lighter-coloured UGG boots are great for making a statement. They contrast and compliment outfits in equal measure but are also prone to unwanted marks and stains. As a result, lighter-coloured UGG boots, such as sand and grey, are best for the drier summer months.
Going Dark – In contrast – quite literally – darker colours such as chestnut and black are brilliant at hiding signs of winter wear and tear. However, they can fade if not looked after properly and cleaned quickly.

How to spot fake UGG boots
How can you check if the UGG boots you’re looking at on screen are genuine with just pictures to go by?
Quantity & Quality of Photos – People with nothing to hide, hide nothing. True UGG sellers will usually display a good selection of detailed photos to prove their boots’ authenticity. Look for close ups, boots shots, box shots and label shots; inspect fully.
The Box – New UGG boots are packaged in brown, 2-piece boxes with a starburst logo in the left corner. The size, style, colour and country of origin should be clearly stated on a white logo at one end. Newer boxes also feature a small hologram sticker that alternates between the starburst and UGG Australia logos.
Logo – All classic UGG boots feature raised labels on the heels. The letters of the logo should overlap slightly without gaps. Inside, the details on the product label should match those on the box.
