that makes sense..i've heard walmart boots referred to as uggs knock offs before (they have that look) but those boots are like, $20 or 30.00.

They are only illegal if they are not really Uggs, but are labeled that way.

If the boots claim to be name-brand Uggs but aren't, then yes those are knock-offs and that is illegal.

You paid over $100 for seasonal fashion shoes for kids?

Twice?

UGH. <- There's my response. It was a visceral sound that came from the depths of my gut. It's also a knock-off of the brand name.

i like your analogy to kleenex, Lol. but i won't call boots uggs or a jacket a north face unless it really is one.

i know! but i thought i was lucky in finding them on sale as some department stores don't mark them down at all. my girls have beat the heck out of them, but the soles are still like new, some 2+ years later now!

Every person I know calls those boots Uggs, no matter what brand they are.

My reaction to the "brand-name-itis" disease was to tell my kids that I was willing to pay "X" for an item (it was usually basketball shoes for my older son) and that if having a check mark across the side of the shoe, or a logo on the jacket was worth sixty bucks extra to them, they could pay the difference themselves.
