“Customer service ( Sandi) in answer to my live chat ? said that Merrell rep said that slate black color is brown.
If so, why is it called black? Something is wrong somewhere.
I passed up a deal flyer opportunity to purchase them at $44 with 99 cent shipping on $50 dollars.
I don't want to pay return shipping if they turn out to be black not brown.
Why is brown called slate black? Is it really so? HELP!!!!!!!”
Mine are brown nubuck. The color on the box is labeled "Slate" (not "Slate Black"). Decided to take a chance and order, after reading a customer review which stated that the color as listed in the product description was wrong, and that the clogs are indeed brown. As for why it's called Slate Black, I have no idea. I would go ahead and order; your deal is better than mine!
