Once the online payment system has received your payment, we prepare your order for shipment.
Is Van den Assem Shoes an official UGG dealer?
Yes, Van den Assem Shoes is an official UGG dealer. Please note that there are other websites online imitating the layout of our webshop to create the impression that they too are official UGG dealers. In cooperation with UGG, we are currently working to prevent sales via these webshops as they not only copy our website, but also do not sell official UGG products.
How can I place an order?
Placing an order via our website is convenient and easy. Add the desired item(s) to your shopping cart by clicking the 'Add to cart' button. If you have a gift voucher, you can input this by clicking the 'I have a gift voucher' button.

When you click on the desired size, you can see whether the text 'Same-day delivery possible for €3.95' appears; in this way, you can see whether same-day delivery is available.
