I purchased both the natural color and the copper and I am glad I did. These boots are very comfortable and I look forward to wearing them. I'm still confused by some people who say they need to be waterproofed. I contacted Ebbie Bauer and they said they are already waterproofed, so I'm left in the dark on some of the previous reviews when other customers say they had to treat them to waterproof them. But I highly recommend them!
