    I have been looking for flats for a long time. I must have tried on 20-30 different brands and styles. I'm short so was never convinced this was the style for me. Plus, none of the other brands fit right. They were either on the verge of slipping off or really uncomfortable. However, that all changed when I bought these flats. They are so comfortable and look great with skinny jeans. I thought they ran a tad small. I'm usually a 6.5 but bought size 6. I have a very normal size foot and arch.

    Definitely an errand only shoe. The style is currently in fashion. Not a shoe for long hours on your feet, and for those with wide feet.

    I wear a size 8 and followed other reviewers' suggestion to order a half size down. The 7.5 fit perfectly! They were for a costume at an amusement park event, so lots of walking and standing would be involved. I have really painful plantar fasciitis and don't usually wear ballet flats or shoes without SOLE footbeds, but figured I'd take a chance with these. The footbeds wouldn't fit properly and made my feet look like ping pong paddles, so I wore them without footbeds all night and my feet actually felt okay. Shocking!! I'll definitely try other pairs from this brand. Very comfortable!

    They are comfortable but they are not navy. They look navy in the picture but they are more a steel blue and can pass for grey. I'm keeping them because I want a pair of grey flats.

    I bought the Malli by Born in the "distressed" leather look. Not sure I like the way the shoes look. I usually love Born shoes but this shoe for $95.00 was a disappointment. Going to keep them because they are comfortable but I am not that crazy about the way they look. Yes they are comfortable. Not going to buy another pair.

    Like others have said, they run at least a half size smaller than labeled. Comparing to a pair of Tommy Bahamas, I wasn't impressed with the quality of the leather, or the support. The leather use in these seemed really lightweight and thin.

    I have always loved Born shoes, these are a beautiful Soft leather, just what I was looking for. Unfortunately they are a HUGE disappointment! They have stretched out and offer NO support. They are so loose on my feet I cannot wear them any longer.

    Perfect ballet flat. Great color for fall in deep red. Comfortable - elasticized back keeps from slipping off heel.

    I purchased these shoes in panna cotta. The gold is very pretty but it scratches easily. I returned the first pair because I thought it was a defect in the leather, but after wearing the shoes a few times, I think the gold just wears quickly. I was surprised by this because I have another pair of gold born flats and they have held up for years without looking worn. The shoes are very comfortable. My only complaint with the style is that they can look like slippers. I know, it is a ballet flat ... but I would like to see a decorative element on the top of the shoe to dress it up a bit more.

    These have a very nicely padded footbed and are comfortable all day. The style is a little boring.
