I purchased these shoes for my Husband and he really likes them. The leather isn't as shockingly white as depicted, and it has a kind of dinosaur-skin look to it, giving the shoes a beneficial "worn in" vibe. Also, the angle of the toes isn't as severe as depicted, and these sneakers really flatter the feet. They give a nice polished look on a casual style. These shoes at this price is a steal, folks.
