I didn't buy these boots from Online Shoes, but from another vendor (I have purchased and returned items from Online Shoes before and their service is fantastic). I bought these in the "Port" color, which is a purplish red. They're GORGEOUS and extremely comfortable. This is my first pair of ECCO shoes but I have been eyeing this brand for some time - I love their design. Gore-tex cannot be beat; you will absolutely never have wet feet. These boots are awesome. I want three more pair. They're so attractive that I might not be wearing them if I know it will be muddy. If you do a lot of walking/hiking in a dry or an urban environment, I'd highly recommend these (or for any other environment, as long as you don't mind getting these beauties dirty). I wish I'd had these for campus-trekking when I was still in college.
