I have the same one as Mindi and love it. It is a bit expensive, but worth it. I posted more details in the iPhone 6 case thread, but the best part is the snug fit and soft interior. Most cases are just plastic, which inevitably allow dust and debris in the cracks, then the case grinds it against the phone causing scratches. I don't think that'll be an issue with apple's cases.

I would have preferred brown leather, but didn't care for the shade of brown they have.
I wanted to get the brown also until I saw the shade. I would have liked a lighter shade.
The brown actually looks pretty good. It's a real shade of leather. I just found these pictures online.

that does look pretty good. I guess the pics on their website just suck. They need pics of them in natural lighting.

I got the pink leather case as well and love it. I looked at the Apple store today for a green silicon one but it was sold out. I wish they had more colors of the leather it feels so light and soft.

I wonder if the navy will look good on space grey.

I like the red Mindi.

I am gonna go by the Apple Store tomorrow AM and see if they have a red one for my wife. Her phone arrives tomorrow. The Spigens I ordered for her (and me) Aren't here yet. :(

I'm just a bit concerned about the open bottom. The 5 case was completely closed. Any concern about damage from the bottom being completely open like that?

I'm not that concerned because the corners are still protected. If you drop it, the material on the corners will protect the whole bottom. Ideally there would be precision cutouts, but like Mindi said, the open bottom also allows greater compatibility with third party accessories.

Just did. It's a awesome case. I tried many one but this one is a keeper.

The open bottom is what makes this case perfect! They work with all my docks!

Well the leather is way better than I expected. Not cheap fake one.

Now I'm really looking forward to getting mine. Ordered from Best Buy for $39.99 for the iPhone 6, Black. It's the only one they have in stock to ship right now...none in store. It's $5 off! The iPhone 6 Plus is $49.99.

I had the 5S leather case...I've never used a case that long, but it was always my default with a few time using a slightly more durable case on trips.

I currently have a Spigen Neo Hybrid on my 6 and I like it, but I miss the leather.

After a few hours gently use it, star showing some wearing. Proves once again it's real leather.

I bought my wife the red leather one...we're waiting for her Spigen case but had to get something for the interim. One of them probably getting returned.

Checked out the Otterbox symmetry case also, very nice and sleek but kinda cover the design of the IPhone.

I actually found an Apple Leather Case for my 6 locally at Best Buy, so I bought it today. The one I ordered will be returned. Found out I had a $10 certificate, so even better...$29! LOVE it. Don't know what I was thinking. The Spigen Neo Hybrid will be great for a more robust case, but this one is MUCH BETTER.

I thought I'd let you see a case I got on eBay that I got for my football team, the 49ers. It's a GREAT case for $20 shipped. It's a rubber/TPU/synthetic case, but has a leather-like distressed look. I'm pretty impressed. I also took a pic of the front so everyone can see what the Zagg Glass looks like on the 6. You can totally tell it's there, but it doesn't bother me.

Here's some pics (don't mind my leg...only way I could get a pic of the ports).
