I was intrigued by this boot, thinking it looked white or off-white on the website. It's actually more of a beige, leaning toward pink.

Brought them home to test anyway because my options are pretty limited and I'd really like some light-coloured boots.

I think the colour could probably turn out to be more versatile than I thought at first, but I'm not sure how one polishes and keeps colour fresh on a boot of this colour? (I know the basic polish colours and that's about it....???)

Also, after wearing for a few minutes, I noticed the leather creasing where my ankle bends. I'm ok with that in something I can polish, but less sure of this. Breaks in the leather of my coloured Docs are pretty much permanent -- I can't polish them up -- and I wonder if these would be the same.

Comfort wise, they seem pretty good so far -- even for my wide foot.

My verdict -- unless someone here can give me great confidence in caring for the leather (and I don't want to have to be fussy with such expensive boots -- I want to be able to LIVE in them) -- I will probably return in favour of another colour. I've ordered the steel grey chisel toe, but might also consider the women's high top in antique brown (which is not the weird mottled Blundstone brown, it's a more traditional looking mid brown leather!).
