"I ordered the "Light grey" in 36. In the photos they appear to be dark blue but in real life they are basically distressed black. They seem to be true to size (36 a little too large for my 5.5 US size) but it is hard to tell because the leather is so stiff that 1) they are difficult to put on and 2) the inner "tongue" (the piece that lies under the shoelaces) digs in the front part of my calf. Seriously, the leather is like cardboard. It is fairly thin too. The only way to wear them would be if it eventually softens. They are very cute and although I was expecting blue, the black is actually pretty cool and once on and ignoring the stiffness, they look great. I am going to keep them for a couple of days while I decide if it is worth it to spend the money in shoes that may or not be wearable. I attached a photo for reference, hope it helps."

I'm sorry that you didn't receive the color you expected! We are looking in to that with our distribution center right now. The leather should soften up as you wear them - eventually you won't ever want to take them off! xoxo
