|Subject: Re: Australia - Ugg Boots|
The history of the ugg boot can be found at http://www.australian-uggs.com/history-of-the-ug-boot.htm
May I suggest you read the whole of that page. You will then realise that the term UGG is generic for sheepshin boots here in Australia despite the fact that an American firm has registered it as a trade name/mark.
If you go to almost any market in Australia (as well as sheepskin manufacturing companies) you will find their version of the ugg boot. Just pick what you think looks the best for your dollar and you can't go wrong.
Happy shopping, Gerrit in Australia
