They look different in different pics on the websites. In person they are actually a gunmetal distressed metallic boot. Not a bright silver, which I would not have liked, and not mostly black with hints of metallic which some of the pictures depict. I love that you can wear them a number of ways; over the knee, scrunched down, folded over on top, or folded all the way down. They look great all these different ways. I love that the fleece lining goes all the way to the toes. They are the warmest most unique boots I own and I own a lot of boots! Very well-made and super comfortable right out of the box. So, YES, I recommend them!
