Color tone of C&J Swansea?

I will most likely purchase the C&J Swansea shoes from Pediwear for this autumn. The picture on their website indicates a different color tone than the picture of C&J's own websites (the UK Swedish) though. Does anyone know which picture that is most accurate?

1) Pediwear
2) C&J UK website
3) C&J Swedish website

(And then I will have the challenge to match the shoes with a belt, non-C&J as they are too expensive, and some gloves - probably Chester Jefferies or Madova.
)

There is just one store where I live and they have almost nothing from C&J in stock. I might email Pediwear and ask about those photos, unless someone at SF knows.

You are buying shoes you have never tried on or handled irl?

I wouldn't buy a Russian bride without meeting her at least once, unless she was really cheap.

Yes, I have the Westfield on the same last so I see no worries whatsoever. Even if I did, it's not a big deal to return them.

I bought a pair of Swansea a few months back.

The pictures with the most true-to-real-life color are the one from C&J website and Pediwear.

The Swedish one is pretty true to life as well, it is simply because it was taken with flash, hence the color looks lighter than real life.

I can't see the first photo, but my pair are closest to photo 2. But a little less red. They are a nice medium-dark brown.

FWIW, the Swanseas are a little roomier around the instep (being bluchers) than the Westfields, but they otherwise fit the same.

Great, thanks for confirming.

Odd, it seems like you have to log in to see the real picture. Anyway, I edited the post and put a link there instead.

I prefer a more red tone, so I guess I'll need to chose shoe cream carefully.

Seems strange that they would fit differently, as it's the same last (341)? Anyway, I suppose they will fit nicely.
