    Very comfortable. Good support and nice color. Well made. Not particularly stylish but not unattractive. Very versatile. I would buy again in other colors.

    I could not wear flats because of my plantar fasciitis, until I found these delightful shoes! I wear them on my commute to work and keep them on all day with nary any pain!

    I was surprised by all of the good reviews of this shoe, especially as far as comfort. I found them to be more narrow than a medium width. But the biggest issue I had was the elastic material around the top of the shoe - for me it is very scratchy and irritating to the skin. The higher tab in the back is also a problem for me as it digs into the back of my heel. I've never had these problems with any other shoe. As far as style, I'm not a fan of how it looks on the foot. While "toe cleavage" has never been appealing to me, this shoe comes up too high on the top of the foot. Between that and the rounded toe, it almost has an orthotic shoe look to it. I ordered the black and the leather is nice. It does seem like a decent quality shoe.

    It is difficult finding a comfortable shoe that also works for dresses and doesn't look like an orthopedic shoe. Fit was true to size, moderate arch support. I wear a B (medium) width, no gaping on sides like Clarks ballerinas I tried. Not fancy but a good basic.

    Very comfortable with nice size heel. I am returning only because I wanted a shoe that was more strappy and less covered.

    Very comfortable. The first day I wore them, it felt like I had been wearing them for years. The leather is very soft, and the inner sole has a cushion ideal to use without socks.

    Awesome shoes. Feels like walking on sponges. Great with jeans and shorts. Love Born footwear! I wear one full size smaller than running shoes!

    I purchased three pairs of these shoes after going on a hunt for ballet-type shoes that didn't make me feel like there was nothing between my foot and the pavement. After a few months of wearing them (and almost sending 1-2 pairs back, but then holding out), here are my thoughts on them... 1) I listed them as "Moderate arch support," but for ballet-style shoes, I'm going to stay that they really offer excellent arch support. The most arch support I've ever felt in a ballet shoe... which is why I never wore them before I found the Born Julianne. However: moderate because... they're still ballet shoes, so don't buy these expecting to float on air like you would if you were wearing something with a thicker sole. 2) If they are a little uncomfortable the first 3-4 times you wear them, keep trying. I was ready to send the "navy" (see point 3 for why that's in quotes) back after the first or second time I wore them. They rubbed on my foot and by the end of the day, I couldn't wait to get out of them. However, because of the Zappos 1-year guarantee, I decided to keep trying, and I'm really glad I did because they definitely stretched (being leather) and now conform to my foot and have become my "go to" shoes. 3) As to the color: I love the red and black, but the "navy" is not as dark as it looks on the website. I was expecting navy, but these are more of a mid-range blue - almost like a faded blue. I still wear them, and still love them, but my complaint stands that I wish they were true navy (closer to the color they appear to be on screen). It could also be that each pair is varied in color because of the leather dying process, so you might get a darker pair than I received. 4) If you're looking for flats that don't kill your feat, look cute (without really bringing attention to themselves), and come in a variety of neutral colors - I stand behind the Born Julianne. I have two more colors that I'm still considering as these have quickly become my favorite spring/summer/fall footwear...after I broke them in.

    Really liked the look, but due to the flex webbing near the heel, the shoe doesn't stay in place. The heel slipped on my foot. I am returning them because I feel certain they will cause blisters on my heel. I also purchased a pair of Born Sawyer slip ons. They stay in place much better and have a very similar look.
