does anyone know the answer to this? i have two pairs, and both stated made in australia. the last pair i bought two winters ago. thanksgiving weekend i bought my sister a pair at Nordstrom, and today was looking at them and thinking about getting myself a pair in black like hers (mine are chestnut and sand). i was super surprised when i saw made in china on the box, as well as in the tag inside of the boot. when did this happen?!
