    I was looking up a few of my rares and all the info I can find about Dryad Sandals say they should be a dark reddish brown. This pair has always looked Brownish-greenish to me, in 2d or EC. Here are two views from CC. I am curious about the color, as I wouldn't describe these as any shade of red. Anyone seen a pair? Were they exceptional as well?

    Manfred, mine are almost an identical match to yours. Exceptional tag, color, all of it. Every pair that I have ever encountered were this same color. Were by chance did you see the reference to them being red?

    That is interesting. He's probably referring to the ones I own and are on my site. I hadn't seen any that are greenish. I use CC. Message me when you get a chance please, I would like to meet up and get a hue id check on it, if you are willing. 111891022

    WootSause, on this rares link http://ultimaonlinerares.com/items/rares/event-items/842/dryad-sandals- was really what I based my question off of. I found one forum discussing them but they didn't have near the details of uorares.
    They(edit:the sandals in the link above) look like horned sandals to me. That link says the hue id is #1509 but I'm pulling #1445 R:88 G:96 B:40 out of pincos. I'm on Pacific if you would like to get your own id of them Lady Deca

    Thank you... hopefully we can get someone who might have been there at the event, or got the sandals themselves who might know whether two colors dropped or if one was altered.

    mine are green, not a hint of red..... long time ago, when dryad sandals were put up for sale, didn't people actually call them that...? "green Dryad sandals"...? seem to remember that distinction tho honestly I don't recall ever seeing "red Dryad sandals" for sale..... very confusing
