I own several pairs of Born shoes/boots in size 11 and so I was really disappointed when I could not even get this bootie on my foot! I don't think my instep is particularly high, but even with the zipper, my foot was just wedged halfway into the bootie and I could not get my heel in. Otherwise, it is quite cute and would have been a fun addition to the shoe collection. The search continues.

These shoes are cute and comfortable, but I bought them four months ago and the heels are already completely destroyed. When I pay this much for a shoe from a good brand, I expect it to survive more than four months of wear. I don't even wear them every day -- they're in rotation with several other pairs of shoes and boots. And I don't walk exceptionally far in them. But the heels have worn through the rubber to the plastic and the plastic has worn down to the hollow interior. In just four months!

These are cute and comfy! I ordered my normal size (7.5) and there is a ton of room in the toe box, but they are snug on the instep. (My feet are on the wider side of normal width.) They were uncomfortably tight for the first few hours, but have stretched enough over a couple days' wear to be perfect. I have stocky legs but they don't make my legs look like tree trunks, which is nice!

These shoes are exactly what I wanted for the fall. The color is more of a french (very warm) grey, not a brown; i's pretty true to the photo. I have sensitive/painful joints in my feet so I usually stick to Born for shoes I can be comfortable walking around in all day, and these do not disappoint. I walked 3 miles in them on the first day I wore them and was comfortable. No breaking in necessary! My shoe size is between an 8.5 and a 9. I ordered these in a 9 so that I could wear them with either light socks or heavy wool socks. The 9 is in fact perfect for both, so I would say they run true to size. My feet are also a little narrow and these fit well, so someone with a wide foot might have trouble.

I initially ordered these boots in my usual size, 9.5, but they were too big once I got them on. For the reviewers who are saying these are hard to put on...loosen the buckle...that made all the difference. Anyway, I did exchange these for a size 9 and they fit perfectly. I love that Zappos gives you the option to exchange for some styles, another great customer service option! I got these boots because I usually wear heels, but I broke my foot and was told once I got out of my boot to stay below 2 inches. These have been really comfortable to walk around in and I haven't had any discomfort/pain. These are cute with straight/skinny jeans, dresses, and pretty much everything else I've tried. I would order them in another color, but I don't care for the shade offered other than black.

I'd also recommend: Frye, Born

Love the looks of this shoe but it just doesn't fit my narrow, flat foot. Beautiful leather and style.
