UGG Boots have been a big holiday gift for years now, but this season the company is warning about counterfeits. The knockoffs are made of “inferior leather, synthetic lining, and adhesive chemicals that aren’t found in the authentic boots.” And you can tell when you put them on – the synthetic fiber in the fakes makes your feet sweat, for one.
The company has taken legal action against 60,000 websites selling counterfeits! But what can consumers do? Good Morning America says beware of websites selling “Discounted UGGs” especially on eBay and AliExpress.com.
