The color seems to be more of a shimmery cream color instead of the goldish color I thought they would be. Not bright white, still cute. The sizing of this boot is tricky. I have multiple pairs of western boots but these have an extra long and narrow tip where even my narrow feet wouldn't fit in but the area around the top of the foot and ankle seems to be normal sizing or maybe a little roomy. I usually wear a 9 but i sized up to a 10 with these and other western boots because of the styling the the narrowing toe box. They 10 is too big and my heal slips so I'm going to send them back and possibly re-order them in a 9 and have the toe area professionally stretched. I am a little paranoid that the long toe tip makes my feet look bigger but I'll wait and see when the smaller size comes in.
