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 for my husband and he absolutely loved them right out of the box. He frequently raved about how comfortable they were and how great they looked. However, I am only giving 4 stars because if these shoes get wet, they get destroyed. We got caught in a heavy downpour and the shoes were unrecognizable when they dried. They were discolored, faded, and even the shape was affected - it got very lumpy looking and they were just in terrible condition. I wouldn't have expected shoes that look this rugged and hardy to fold when faced with rain. Even my designer heels would not be worse for the wear after exposure to water. Luckily, when I contacted Zappos they immediately offered to replace them, and the process could not have been easier. Love Zappos customer service! It would be nice if these shoes were water resistant but we live in Southern California so we don't get that much rain. My husband will still be able to wear these shoes year round, just as long as it doesn't look like it's going to rain!

This is my second pair. I wore the first for a couple years and they were just dull and worn out. Rarely do I buy a second pair of the same shoes but these look and feel good.

I have purchased this boot twice now. Very comfortable, the only negative is the sole can be a little slippery on certain floors.

This is my second pair of the same shoes that I have bought. They are great casual every day shoes - especially during the winter months. I left the first pair at a hotel after three months so I reordered my second pair. With both pairs the pull tab broke off but that did not keep me from enjoying them.

I'd also recommend: Vans

I read multiple reviews before purchasing. Others who posted that these run 1/2 size large were right. I learned this the hard way, so save yourself some time and just purchase a half size smaller than what you normally wear. Very comfortable and look great. Have been pleased so far.
