Is the collar and tongue fabric a black thick honeycomb like or a greyish smooth one?
HARLEY D Go ahead and purchase them! You won't be sorry. They give my foot great support and are very comfortable for all day hiking. Exterior of the boot is a very durable leather. Inside the boot, the upper portion of the tongue and collar are a comfortable padded leather. The boot liner is a soft, black comfortable tight weave mesh slightly padded at the upper ankle. I definitely would be willing to purchase them again in the future.
