Love these boots! The leather upper is soft and supple and the sole is not too high to wear all day. I was expecting them to be a little more red in color and they are on the purple side, but I actually like that better. They stretch a bit so I ordered a 1/2 size smaller and after one day of wear they fit great.
I love the slate black. It isn't black at all. It is more of a grey/taupe/green combination. It is a very neutral color that goes with everything. I am wearing them right now actually (with a two-tone grey sweater jacket, grey tights and a black tee)!

Originally I purchased one pair of each of these colors (miles and slate black). Slate black is actually a very pretty shade of dark brown.
Because I had forgotten about a pair of brown boots I had previously purchased last year, I returned the slate black and kept the miles. I too plan to wear for casual dress, so I kept the "miles" as it's a unique shade on its own. I occasionally wear black, but my preferences are grey and brown. You can't go wrong with either color as the boot is very comfortable!
