I purchased these boots about 9 months ago, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Order a full size smaller, and if you have high arches, get some inserts. They had almost 0 break-in time. I wear them everyday for work, they can dress up or dress down easily, and are just comfortable.

These were great, but the quality has diminished to unacceptable. I originally bought a pair of these a couple of years ago and loved them. I wore them almost every day for two years, and basically walked through the sole. I decided to buy the same style to replace my previous boots. The new boots arrived and were noticeably less substantial, e.g., the loops used to pull on the boots felt much thinner. Alas, I was proven correct. Within a few weeks, the loop broke. I called Zappos (excellent as always) and they sent me a replacement pair. The loop on these lasted almost a week before breaking, and has now come off altogether. Other parts of the boot are also failing. It's a shame. Born either sent a bad lot to Zappos or their manufacturing has deteriorated. This went from a boot that took everything I gave it for two years, finally needing replacement because I walked through the soles, to a boot that couldn't even make it a week! That's weak. Attempts to contact Born directly have thus far met with silence. Zappos, as always, has been wonderful.

I bought these boots two years ago, and loved them so much, I'm buying a second pair now. I LOVE the Born shoes for men, and they're all I wear. I only wish they would last longer, but I'm not complaining - i wear them out eventually. I'd also like to see more of their boots feature the "square toe" like this pair, vs. the more rounded toe (Twain boots).

I love these boots. They are chic and very comfortable. They are very true to size and easy to put on and take off. I once walked in these boots for six hours straight and was very pleased to notice that they did not irritate my feet. The heel sits nicely in the back and does not slip, and there is room in front for toes. My feet are a tad bit on the wide side but not too wide. These boots provide perfect support and brown leather is eye catching without being flashy. I might just buy a second pair!

Got these for my husband. He loves them. They look great on. The sizing is right on. We discovered this after ordering 1/2 size down and 1/2 size up before getting his true size and them fitting perfectly. Thank you Zappos for the two exchanges...

My son asked for new boots and I ordered three different styles from Zappos. These were his favorite - he is 22 years old - they looked great with his jeans and he said they were super comfy! They were true to size.

I initially considered this style of boot as well as the desert boot style, but it was the comfort of the former that won the day (having tried them both on in stores). Personally I see no need for an added insole, as the one built in is plenty supportive and comfortable. I ordered a half-size down and the fit was perfect. The style has a hardy appeal of classy yet rugged. It pairs well with jeans and chinos and anything from a t-shirt to a button-down or sweater (I have even worn it with a sport coat). The only complaint on style is that it appears mildly boxy in the toe region. Finally, it insulates well, and in colder weather (i.e., 40s) with normal to thick socks my feet have been cozy. Well recommended!
