Now I think we know why there were so many photos in black and white, the color choices are rather poor. Not the woven area, but the rest of the shoe. I suppose these are supposed to be earth colors, this rather drab brownish greenish whatever, and that kind of flannel Grey in the other color option. How much better would this shoe look if it was a rich dark earth brown, with a more dynamic weaving of similar colors including the Green? Or if that Gray was a dark charcoal, how much better would it look? A lot better in my opinion. And why are the soles white? That seems to be another particularly bad choice for this type of shoe. Maybe there is a color that I'll like in this shoe, but so far I haven't seen it.
