These are a brown smooth leather with a touch of red. They are not very dressy as they remind me of a motorcycle boot that I had as a teen. I needed to add a heel liner as I "walked out" of them even with thick socks. I also waterproofed them to get greater wear. They had two zippers in each boot for decoration but only one zipper works. That works for me!
Great purchase!! I love this brand of shoes. I have issues with my feet and this is a brand I can wear,
The Racheke booties are very beautiful and well made. I just wish they were little bigger around the ankles, because I can't close the zipper very well.
These are similar to a pair I bought several years ago which I can now retire. Fit well, per my normal Easy Spirit size with room for heavier winter socks when needed. Have worn them once so far; perfectly comfortable.
