Yes definitely. My brother got me a pair from Florida probably four years ago now. They were £140 over here and I paid £70 including taxes. Prices have gone up since i bought and the exchange rate isnt as good. But I looked in to it when a friend visited recently. The ones I got would now work out about £90-100 but they're now £165 in the UK. I think the taxes depends on the state you're in but don't think it differed massively
As OP's have said ^^ yes they are. I was in NY in October and bought 2 pairs. The tall ones in black were approx £100 and some short ones that they stopped doing in adult sizes from the kid's section for £70. If your Mum is a small size she may fit into a child's size (they go up to a UK 5) which will make them cheaper still
They will be cheaper. I bought my mums in Boston last year, broadly they were about 1/3 cheaper including the tax. Don't waste time finding an outlet, they're too far out and you'll still be quids in if you buy on Manhatten.
Check out Bloomingdales, and make sure you pop up to the concierge and get a 10% discount voucher.
Man, I LOVE Bloomingdales.
Oh! And tell your bank you're going to avoid spending all the money you could be saving on the phone trying to answer security questions
Just checked, there are 3 UGG stores on Manhatten. Head for the one on Mercer in Greenwich. Shoppings miles better (except my beloved Bloomingdales) round there anyway, more consolidated and great places to eat.
MIIIIILES cheaper. Just brought some back for my niece - 199 euros in Ireland, $135 in USA (about 103 euros). Roughly half the price - and she couldn't get the colour she wanted in Ireland. I even got them from Saks Fifth Avenue, which is not exactly a Bargain Basement store.
