Its long and quite slim. I really love the shape and the colour. Its not as orange as in my picture and I think it will age well. I'm sure the toes are going to get darker as they age and I won't really mind that.
Sizing-wise I would say true to size if a little narrow. I'm normally between a 6.5 and 7 (UK) 40-40.5 (euro) and I got these in a 7 because I got orthopedic insoles. They could still be a touch smaller but that could have something to do with my extremely narrow ankles so I'm kind of sliding up and down. The stitching and little details like the ankle tabs are really beautiful. I'm a happy bunny.

Yes, they have leather soles. I'm going to experiment wth these and not have them rubberized because I feel like a heathen everytime I do that but I hate slipping!
