For some reason I was under the impression that these shoes would be much more on the white side. They are a light tan really, which isn't bad just not what I was expecting. I went with size 38 for my size 7 foot and I'm thinking maybe I should've sized down since the fit is quite roomy. They also do scuff very easily. All things considered I still really love these shoes and find myself wearing them almost every day since they are so easy to style.
