These shoes are so earthy and unique! After a bit of back and forth with Overland (I had to exchange them twice)I got a nice color. The two pairs originally sent were gray and black and much darker than pictured which would have been much cuter for a boy...but I have a girl. I get compliments on them all the time! They do fall off now and again, so I have to watch them. It is worth it, though, because of the style. If you want boots that don't fall off -- go with the Uggs.
