Ugg boots are made from soft leathers, stretching will weaken and lead to tears and rips which cannot be repaired. Small toes (sometimes with sharp nails) stretching out soft leathers for hours on end will nearly always result in tears. Trying to push your heel down a pair of undersized classic tall will also rip the heel apart. Size your pair correctly.
Ugg boots sag for a number of reasons which are quite easy to avoid. Donít stuff your jeans into them, the leathers will stretch and weaken (and then sag). Keep your ugg boots dry. Wet ugg boots will lose their shape. When youíre storing them away for the summer stuff them full of newspaper and store them in your wardrobe in an upright position.

Water and staining is sometimes unavoidable. You can help prevent staining from the rain by protecting your ugg boots with a silicon based sealant like scotch guard. Keep in mind you will need to keep reapplying the sealant regularly as it does wear off. Ugg boots can also be destroyed quite easily during cleaning, take a look at our cleaning guide for instructions.
