We can help you find some discounts on UGG boots. (By the way, thoughts of wearing UGG boots aren’t just seasonal. A parade of UGG boot wearers is seen throughout the summer—many even on beach boardwalks. And let’s not forget on the West Coast, UGG boots are worn year-round.
UGG Australia has outlets all over the place with its footwear on discount, as do two big name retailers that have their own outlet stores withUGG boots at a discount among their stock. Saks Fifth Avenue has its Off-Fifth and Nordstrom has its Nordstrom Rack. Online, there’s 6pm.com sells shoes at discounts, of course, including UGG boots.
We’ll give you locations in the New York/New Jersey area where you can buy real UGGs on discount , but we don’t mind pausing here to repeat UGG Australia’s warning on getting tricked into buying fake UGGs. You can pass this warning along to anyone you know who is committed and especially someone who might boast of finding a site to buy cheap, cheap UGGs.
WATCH OUT FOR PHONIES
Now, cheap is a key word to look out for in online searches, says UGG Australia on its official website. UGG Australia warns thousands of “Counterfeit UGG Websites” advertise their fake UGG products using wording such as “cheap uggs”, “discount uggs,” “uggs on sale” or websites calling themselves “ugg outlets” or “ugg shops.”
And to ensure that you don’t get ripped off, UGG Australia has a page on its site devoted to counterfeiting, empowering you to check. All you have to do is plug in the name of a purported UGG discount seller, click, and you’ ll see if you’re getting a real UGG Australia dealer authorized to sell discount UGGs.
With that cleared up, let’s see what the real deals are:
UGG Australia outlets all have the same discount policy. When merchandise ends up on the clearance rack, expect a 50% discount. There can be bigger discounts depending on color. A sparkle version of the classic UGG boot in colors like ruby red, emerald and deco blue, was selling at $149, a steep deduction from the regular price of $20o or $275. You won’t find the classic UGG boot in the standard colors like chestnut and black at the outlet. The merchandise at outlets are usually discontinued items or from past seasons.
Off-Fifth’s example of its discounts is a pair of UGG boots originally sold at the manufacturer’s suggested price of $160. Typically the discount at Off-Fifth on UGGs is 20%, so for these boots, the price was $128. When Off-Fifth has a sale, you may get an additional discount anywhere from 30%-40%. That would mean these UGG boots could cost $89.60 at the additional 30% cut or $76.80 at the extra 40% break.
Nordstrom Rack has UGGs regularly available in stores, starting at minimum savings of 30%. The stock includes close-out merchandise directly from UGG as well as UGG clearance from Nordstrom full-line stores.
6PM.com came into our view when a friend raved about the great discount she got on a pair of Timberland boots. So we checked it out, and found UGG’s boots and its other footwear at the site, which is owned by Zappos. The discount on UGG boots was mostly 28%.
For example, an UGG classic short boot in vibrant lavender or a brilliant hibiscus sells for $109.90 down 28% from $155. But wait, you also can snag a discount of a whopping 55% on certain styles. A pair of high-stepping, mahogany boots with several inches of wooden heel was priced at $134.99, a big plunge from $300.

Did you know UGG Australia is an American company? It was founded more than 30 years ago in Southern California by an Australian surfer. Armed with sheepskin, he was looking for a way to make gear to protect his feet in the waves.
