I'm really pleased with these boots. I got them in black and walked all over NYC in them for several days. They were comfortable right out of the box (no breaking in required), and they work equally well with skinny jeans or dresses. The leather is soft, and the gunmetal hardware looks really sharp. Best of all, they make me feel like River Tam when I wear them. I hope they wear as well as I think they will. I'm considering getting them in brown too!

Not to be totally inappropriate, but these boots totally made me look like I was in the Gestapo. I tried them with three different outfits...no way.

Fabulous! Very stylish and comfortable. I travel a lot and these are my "go to" footwear. They look equally good dressed up with tailored wool slacks or with casual jeans and a sweater. Born has always been a comfortable shoe for me and for the price I feel the quality is excellent.

I'm very pleased with these boots. They are very comfortable right out of the box. Many shoes I try are too narrow in the toes but these are perfect. They have a good amount of arch support. And they look fantastic with jeans! I like the straps and buckles, they give them a funky look different from a lot of plain boots. I've only just gotten them but they seem very sturdy and I expect them to last a long time. Mine are brown but I'm thinking of getting them in black I like them so much!

I'm in my 60s and wanted a jazzy jet comfortable boot to wear in moderately bad weather. That means I won't really wear it in pouring rain. I also wanted to be warm. This boot works! Not to mention that it was totally comfortable right out of the box. I did order my usual size 9-1/2 and a 9. I kept the 9. I can wear thick wool socks or just regular knee-hi's in these and they fit the same. There is a long tongue in front that wasn't obvious, but it's really helpful getting the boot on and off. It's especially handy when tucking in pants. These hit at mid calf and look great with pants tucked in or underneath jeans. I can walk in them all day. The sole is super comfy and for my flat feet feel very supportive. The whole inside is lined with a warming cushioned fabric. Very stylish - I have had compliments from strangers. I feel pretty young when I wear these!
