These are the most comfortable dress shoes for someone who spends the day on their feet. I have worn them teaching and serving tables: phenomenal. I have the same pair in brown and they have lasted me for years. They are totally worth the price.

Not the Born shoes you would expect, and they are nowhere near the original Born Blast. These shoes were tight and lower and stiffer as well as being smaller than the orig. It's obvious that Born is trying to save some money...well, I just returned them. I have purchased 10 pairs of Born Blast shoes in the past 10 years...4 from Zappos, I'm really disappointed.

These don't fit like they used to. I've had several pair of Born Blast shoes and they've always been the same size, but when I put these ones on I was able to pop my heel out of the back just by taking a step. I think they lowered the profile of the shoe or something. I returned them and will continue shopping. Thankfully that is a piece of cake with Zappos!

I have worn these shoes every day for a year. They are well constructed, comfortable and still look good. I highly recommend these shoes.

I'd also recommend: Ecco, Patagonia, Born

Not satisfied with the fit and finish of the product. I am a new user to Zappos. I specifically went online looking for a particular pair of shoes. I was extremely excited to find what I was looking for on the Zappos website. I had a pair of Born shoes that were identical to the Blast II shown online. My worn out shoes were an extremely comfortable favorite and was hoping to replace them in kind. After having received the Blast II shoes it is clear there is a major fit and finish difference between the old and new. The new shoes I received fit differently from left foot to right foot. The cuts of the leather were ever so slightly different than the original pair. The dimpled texture on the shoes varied from the right foot to the left foot. The difference in texture was noticeable enough to feel like I was wearing two different shoes. It has me questioning future purchases of Born shoes. As a consumer I truly appreciate the free shipping and returns, but it was a waste of carbon output shipping that pair around the globe.

Had been looking for some comfortable shoes to wear around the house and yard, Saw my podiatrist wearing them in his office and asked about them. He said he wears them in surgery and when he will be on his feet on concrete for long hours. I tried a pair and have been very happy with them. Helps ease foot pain of diabetes.

I'm very happy with these shoes. These are my first pair of Born shoes and pry won't be my last. They came very quickly, are true to size, comfortable and look like they do in the picture. I would recommend them, great for work or everyday.
