UGGS Question

Does anyone know if the Uggs for this season have the holographic UGG tag (with the suns) inside BOTH of the boots in a pair? I bought a pair of classic short for my sister from Nordstrom so I'm guessing they're real, but only the left boot has an UGG tag with the hologram inside. The right boot also has a slightly asymmetrical sole design and is cut slightly taller than the left boot on one side and has an off-center back tag...but how likely would it be that ONE boot of a pair could be fake? (So I'm trying to attribute it to slight manufacturing variations...but the inner holographic tag is what's throwing me off [because I don't know if that's how UGG makes them].)

I can take some photos later and add them to the post.

ETA: Here are some pics.

This is the tag I'm talking about--it's only in the left boot and I don't know if that's how it's supposed to be. It says "UGG australia" and has the little holographic strip:



Slight height difference (it's a bad pic, but the right one is taller on the left side of the boot):



Off-center back tag (compared to sole and back seam):



The right sole also has an off-center sun pattern, circled here (the center ray is not perpendicular to the end of the sole):



For comparison, here is the left sole. The rays are symmetrical and the center ray is centered:



I have no idea if I'm just being nitpicky or not, but I know there are fakes out there...and I would hate for my sister to be wearing fake UggS...like everyone else! Any help will be appreciated.

im not an expert, but ive never seen those tags and the height diff throws me off a bit and also the stitching around the top of the boot ... wait for others though

Even if they were real, the off center and the different heights would bother my OCD so I'd return them and exchange for a new pair

That would bug me too. Are they kid's boots? Pretty sure they have white tags. I would take them back and exchange for a more consistent pair

LOL I was feeling the same way (and so was my sister), but she just ended up wearing them...I think they're real...but if it happens with another pair and it's funky I'll just return them.

They are womens, not kids. I don't know anything about tag colors...

Not that I advocate this usually, but if this continues to be an issue and if it bothers your sister even if she has worn these, Nordstrom will honor your request to exchange. This would bother me, personally - they aren't the cheapest of boots, and when you pay nearly $200 for a pair, it comes with certain expectations that must be met.

IMHO.

Same.

I'm not a pro either but I can definitely say that none of my Uggs have ever had a tag like that or shown any similar imperfections.

I know that this seasonís boots have a hologram tag. I got a pair of cardys for Christmas and they had that tag. Ugg also included a card in the box explaining the new tag change to determine authenticity. I'm not sure if the tag was in both boots or only one...I returned these boots so I can't check.

Hope I helped a little....I wouldn't return them for the tag problem but def. for the height difference. Nordstrom will exchange them since they are defective and if they don't have your size instock they will ship them to your house. (I have done this before)

If they're authentic and she's happy with them, then that's all that matters.
