They were definitely brown.
My understanding is that this boot comes in two colors - peanut brittle (which I purchased and love) and mad dog goat/anthracite which is the grey color. The color on the one I purchased was listed as peanut brittle mad dog goat, so I was confused too. I believe that if you order the anthracite, you should definitely receive the grey version. I did some research on other sites before I ordered, because I think there is some confusion in the naming.
