How can I tell if my UGG® boots are real?

Journeys, Journeys Kidz and Shi by Journeys sell authentic UGG® Australia products. Depending on when your product was manufactured, there are a couple of ways to ensure the authenticity of your product.

Product manufactured from the Fall 2010 up to Fall 2012 comes with two-layers of security: contained in a reflective security label and/or security sticker, allowing you to instantly authenticate genuine UGG® Australia products. Simply locate the reflective security sticker on the outside of your shoebox. The sticker is embedded with two distinct features.

1.  To view the first feature, turn the sticker 90º and make sure the sun logos change from black to white on the reflective strip. Second, look at the same sticker's reflective strip, turn it at an acute angle and verify that the UGG logo appears on the strip with some color reflecting.

2.  If both security features perform as described, then you have an authentic UGG® Australia product.

If your product has a sewn in material content label it will also have a security label sewn in behind the label on the left boot or shoe and will work in the same manner as the sticker (note: if there is no sewn in label, a security sticker will be on the outsole of the left shoe).


Beginning Fall 2012, UGG® Australia has added a new security label (behind the sewn in label of the boot or shoe) and a box sticker to help ensure that your new product is authentic.  The security feature utilizes "rolling optics".  Turn the label or sticker and you should see the UGG® logo rolling over the suns with an optical illusion of depth (3D).

If you receive any UGG® Australia product from Journeys that does not meet the features above, contact Customer Service immediately at 1-888-324-6356.

Source codes are located on the back of your catalog or in the body of promotional emails we may send you. Source codes are necessary to redeem special offers that may be associated with a catalog or email. The code will need to be entered into the order before the discount or promotion can take effect.


What does "This item will ship from the manufacturer mean"?

Certain items on our site are shipped directly from the manufacturer. Please allow up to three additional days for delivery. These items will ship UPS Ground and are not eligible for expedited shipping (overnight or 2nd day). Additionally, these items are not eligible to be returned to one of our retail locations. For return information, please follow the instructions found here.

How long will it take for me to receive my order?

When you submit your order, it can take a couple of hours to process it. We check and make sure that the item is available and that the information is correct.

Once the order is checked for that and we have confirmed all information, then we send the order to the warehouse to be shipped.

When the warehouse receives the order, then they will ship it out. This usually takes 7-10 business days. If you choose 2-3 day delivery, then you will receive the merchandise within 2-3 business days from the day that it ships out. Same with next business day delivery.

Please note that orders shipped to Puerto Rico can take 3-4 weeks for delivery.

What does Backordered or Will Ship From Store mean?

Will Ship From Store:  This status means that the product is currently not available in our warehouse, but is available in one of our stores.  We are unable to honor expedited shipping requests on products of this status because of the time it could take coordinate the fulfillment with our stores and UPS.


Backordered:  A backordered status means that the product is currently not in stock but is expected to be on the date displayed. 


If all of the product in your cart is either in a “Backordered” or “Will Ship From Store” status, the website will not allow you to choose an expedited shipping option since we cannot guarantee Overnight or 2 Day delivery of a product that is not in stock in our warehouse.

What shipping and sales tax is included in my purchase?

Sales tax applies to the state where the merchandise is being shipped. Since Journeys® is registered to conduct business throughout the United States, sales tax must be added to your order at your local sales tax rate, where applicable.

Our normal shipping method is via UPS ground. That means you should receive those funky shoes or accessories within 7-10 business days from the day we process your order. UPS will not deliver to P.O. or A.P.O. Boxes.
For UPS 2-3 Business Day Air delivery, add an additional $9.00. For UPS Next Business Day Air delivery, add an additional $18.00.

I saw a shoe in the store, but can't find it online or in the catalog. Help!

The website carries a certain amount of merchandise that the stores do not carry and the stores carry a certain amount of merchandise that the catalog and website do not carry. If the store does not have the size in a certain shoe that you want, you can see if they can special order that shoe from another store.

Will I be charged for taxes on my order?

We charge sales tax for the states that the shoes are being shipped to. We have over 850 stores in the 50 United States and are required to charge state sales taxes.

Can you special order sizes that you don't have available online?

Due to the minimum restrictions from all of our vendors, we are unable to special order any single sizes.

We accept all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover), PayPal and the Bill Me Later payment method.

We also accept checks or US money orders through the mail.

Journeys gift cards are also accepted in stores, by phone and online. We also accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express gift cards.

Why am I required to enter a Credit Card when I'm redeeming Journeys Zap Cards?

Since actual taxes are calculated after the order is processed, we ask for a credit card in the event that the gift card balance does not cover the final order price (we do not accept COD). If your state of residence does not charge sales tax and/or your gift card covers the order total, your credit card will not be charged.

Why does the it say that my cart empty after I know I put something in it?

This typically is the result of your browser having "cookies" turned off or your security settings set to "high".  Please check these settings.  If the problem persists, feel free to contact our call center at: 1-888-324-6356.
