I'm a bit disappointed because of the color: the ones I received are light brown rough leather, not dark brown and soft leather like in the picture. The difference is very noticeable and I prefer the look of the picture. That's the reason why I gave them 3 stars. In Amazon they were cheaper and the color of the pics there is more accurate to the real product. Besides that, shoes are very comfortable, fresh, light and sturdy. Size OK. Normally I'm 43.5 but I asked 45 because I read from other users that you should take 1.5 larger size. 45 fits perfect to me.
