I have these boots in camel and they are fab. Fit perfect, colour perfect, worn and worn them. Decided to buy them in dark brown and have just had to send them back as the stench was unbearable!! Terrible smell of tanning - really strong and fishy. I wore them a few times and hoped it would go away, but it didn't. Even with febreeze, and leaving them in a draughty hall way. Too embarrassing to wear. What's going on fly? This was the 6th pair of fly boots I'd bought (differing styles etc) and never, ever had this problem before. It took me right back to Marrakesh..... and not in a good way!
