For the most part, these were out-of-the -box comfortable, and while I think this style runs true to size, I found the height of the toe box a bit too low for my taste. It is possible that my foot size is changing, though, so I wouldn't say it is the shoe. The sole, shape, structure--all the comfort I have come to rely on Born to provide.

I'd also recommend: Ecco, Merrell

When I saw this style, I had high hopes that Born was once again making the most comfortable shoe in the world. Sadly, I must to say that is not true. Toe box is tight - not the nice roomy one that made the "European" shoes so comfortable. I have a high instep and finally cut the elastic just a bit hoping it would open up the shoe. That relieved some pressure off the arch, but toes are still tight. I optimistically purchased two pairs and will most likely be sending one back. I give it credit for the quality and support as the shoe is lined and has good padded footbed. I wore and loved Born shoes for years and then recently the quality seemed to fall so I started trying some other brands. I have yet to find anything as comfortable as the old Born shoes. I have also worn and loved Josef Seibel, but they have priced themselves right out of my budget. This looked like a good basic "comfort shoe" but so far it is only moderately comfortable.

This is my second pair of Born's this season I ordered (these just went on sale). I went to Seattle for a Seahawks game, walked all around Pike Street Market, the game, etc. My sister who was wearing Clarks (no offense Clark) complained the whole time that her feet were hurting. My feet felt like I was wearing a good pair of tennis shoes. Love the style.

I purchased this shoe (Pearl) several years ago at a Dillards store in Boise Idaho. It took a bit to get it broken in. Hopefully the newer ones have softer leather. My complaint though is that around the entire shoe is a strip that eventually cracks and pulls away from the top and bottom of the shoe. I took this to a shoe repair place and they said with the way this is constructed they cannot fix this shoe. This is a shame since both the top and sole are still in very good condition and I could get several more years out of this if it weren't for this problem. I question the need for a strip between the top and sole, why not just stitch to and sole together as the Juanita is made? I am returning the Juanita I just received as it is a bit too shallow compared to Pearl and my heel slips when I walk. Please pass on this construction comment to whomever it may concern.

I'd also recommend: none at the moment

Wanted an easy slip on shoe for work and looking for comfort. This shoe fits the bill, although it isn't the most attractive shoe. Rounded toe tends to look clunky, but would recommend if comfort is more of what you are looking for.
