A federal judge on Tuesday slapped a Staten Island man with 2 1/5 years in prison for trying to smuggle more than $2.5 million in fake UGG boots into the Port of Newark, officials said Tuesday.

Between September 2016 and February, Zheng got shipping numbers from someone overseas that were linked to at least three shipping containers with more than 15,000 fake designer boots, the feds said.

He paid port workers more than $50,000 to remove the containers before customs agents could check them. His crew then delivered the containers to other members of Zheng’s network, who were to sell the goods in New Jersey and elsewhere.

But before Zheng could distribute his counterfeit footwear, law enforcement seized the containers, checked the contents and concluded the boots were fakes.
