"Ugg" is a generic name for a sheepskin boot.
To discern whether you are buying an Australian article please note that all genuine Australian Ugg boots carry the "Australian Made" green triangle kangaroo logo/trademark which is licensed exclusively to Australian made products. The UGG® Australia - Deckers Corporation brand is in fact an American company which makes its boots in China. Look for the SEW IN LABEL saying "Made in Australia" and "Genuine Sheepskin".
Another consideration is whether you are purchasing genuine sheepskin or a synthetic product. Fake sheepskin will have a knitted backing.
