Bracing for cold weather here in the Northeast with thoughts of a warm, fuzzy feeling for your feet that UGG boots might provide? But maybe you want cheap Uggs? That is, you still want your toes cuddled by the sheepskin, but you don’t want to blow your winter shoe budget.
We can help you find lower-priced UGGs. (By the way, thoughts of wearing the 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, the boots are worn year-round.)
Strictly Legit Ugg Retailers
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 which sells cheap 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 the warning on getting tricked into buying fake boots. 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 UGG boots.
Watch Out for Fake Uggs
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 cheap Ugg boots.
Retailers Known for Offering Cheap 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 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 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 the boots could cost $89.60 at the additional 30% cut or $76.80 at the extra 40% break.
Uggs at Nordstrom Rack
Nordstrom Rack tends to have Ugg boots on sale, usually in the range of 10-15% off. The stock includes close-out merchandise directly from the factory as well as clearance from Nordstrom full-line stores. It’s a great strategy to check back often, particularly around holidays to catch a bigger discount on your Uggs. You can often save 30% or more off retail if you time it right.
Uggs at 6pm.com
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. The discount on UGG boots was mostly 28%. The online retailer carries a large selection of Uggs, with non-traditional Ugg styles starting at less than $40. For example, (as of 08/11/16), you can pick up a pair of Ugg Kyras for $36.99, which is 80% off retail.
An UGG classic short boot in plum sells for $109.90, down 29% from $155. But wait, you also can snag a discount of a whopping 55% on certain styles. A pair of black, block heeled, lace-up boots sells for $74.99, 57% off the retail price of $175.
New! Buy Uggs Used at Tradesy
If you don’t mind wearing secondhand Ugg boots, head on over to Tradesy’s Ugg page for some amazing deals. Yes, Tradesy sells used pieces, but the condition is generally very good. We took a look at the Ugg options (3/31/2015) and were pretty impressed with the selection and prices.
