Purchased the shoe in red! The shoe was a little difficult to get on at first. The leather is brand new. Once I got the on, I found the shoe to be very comfortable with excellent cushion in the foot bed. Then I removed the shies and tried them with a pair of no show socks also purchased from Zappos, and Wow what a difference in the fit and comfort factor! Very little break in time on these, very unique in style as well! Thank you Zappos for such a fast delivery as well! You guys are the absolute best in giving Wow customer service and customer satisfaction!

Born are always comfortable and high quality shoes. My style is casual-athletic, and I was looking for the shoes that would match my style. These shoes are perfect. The leather is very soft, easy to put on and take off. My most favorite are: the elastic shoelaces and the strechy back. You can wear them with jeans and any casual pants. Like these shoes a lot.

I'd also recommend: Keen, Merrell, Teva

These seemed so cute but even after ordering 1/2 size larger as advised in shoe description, they just do not work. Getting my foot into the permanently laced elastic opening was a fight, even with a shoehorn. Once in, the shoe was too long with the arch not supporting correctly but constricting the arch. Lots of toe room but just not right in the middle. Even getting them off was difficult. I am sending these back. I have a lot of Born shoes and I have never even tried on a pair that was like this. This style might have worked in my regular size if the opening was one with shoelaces that could have been adjusted. What a disappointment.

The shoe looks beautiful but I had a very difficult time getting my foot into the shoe because the elastic lacing comes up so far. The tab in the back also comes up a little too far for me and cuts into the back of my heel. The toe box seemed roomy enough but I was not able to test for walking.

Nice idea but what were these designers thinking? My feet are not wide or fleshy and it took 5 minutes to get my foot into this shoe. It wasn't designed for a foot.
