I live in the Netherlands and i received my package in 4 business-days, so credits for that. The package was a bit damaged but because of the distance that is always possible. There are a few spots on the shoe. But I like them. They fit like the normal Old Skool vans. A bit larger then my normaal shoe size. The height of the shoe is not bothering me. The color is as shown. My experience with beginning boutique is great! I really recommend this store.
