I cannot say that I am particular fond of this colour, but you can't blame EG.
They only offered this leather as a potential choice and some buyer (either an individual ore a store-buyer) ordered the shoes. I rather prefer a manufacturer (whatever they produce) who offers me a wide choice (although some colours I might never consider) to one who operates according to the famous Henry Ford maxim: "Any colour, as long as it's black!"
