These boots come to the upper calf & if you are in-between sizes I would suggest sizing down. I have these in the Pewter/ Elephant Skin and the color is exactly as pictured on the site. This is a great boot to rock while walking the dog, or shoveling the driveway or just slipping on after skiing. Don't be fooled by this boots looks, it is still a sorel & is a work boot. Love the look & that I don't have to unlace the whole thing to get my foot out.
