Could it be that I've finally found a flat that I can wear?? Looks like it! Most flats are too narrow in the toe, and if I go to a larger size they flip right off my feet. These are true to size. The Stowaway II is an improvement over the original, or maybe it's just that the color I chose has particularly soft leather (I have black/pewter). A bit of arch support, which I cannot live without, does the job. It could be a bit more supportive but it's outstanding compared to flats in general. I know that with the multi-textured leather each pair will be unique, but the one problem I really had was that in my pair each shoe was quite different. I was going to send them back to see if another pair might be more symmetrical, but I liked them so much I didn't want to give them up. So I took the rougher side of a nail buffer and used it lightly on one shoe. Now they are not exactly alike, but close enough to go together as a pair. There will be a short break-in period, I can tell, but the leather is soft and will quickly conform to the foot.

I have a different pair of Born flats that I absolutely love. I ordered these in the same pair and wish I could say I loved them. I know everyone's feet are different and not everyone has the same issues with a pair of flats, but these flats tore up my little toes on both feet. I had terrible blisters and then eventually they started bleeding due to the chafing against my foot. I found this very odd because I have VERY narrow feet, so I'm not sure why this happened. A half size bigger would have been too big. I'm going to attempt to stretch them out with some socks and a blow drier or see if putting band aids on my little toes will prevent future chafing. I'm pretty bummed out. It sucks that I wore them around the house and nothing, but as soon as I walked a few blocks in them outside, my feet were ruined. Sigh.

I love these shoes. I have a size 10 foot and I'm slightly wider than average through the toes so these got 4/5 because it took a little time to stretch across the forefoot for me. For black shoes the snake print adds a little flair, I might buy the purple pair in the future because they're simple with a little funk.

Loved the idea of this shoe foldable and lightweight! Unfortunately, they are too tight in the toe, especially compared to the typical 8.5 Born I always wear. They are going back.

I am a huge fan of the Born line of shoes. They are high quality and so consistently comfortable that they are the only brand I am 100% comfortable ordering online, having not tried them on, with confidence. That being said, these particular shoes were not as high quality in my opinion. The stitching and overall construction feel cheap. I also dislike the sole with the break under the arch. I'm returning my pair, but other people may like them.

i ordered these shoes after reading a lot of positive reviews. I agree - they are well made and the leather is good quality, but unfortunately, they are not working out for me. This style is tighter and shorter than what I usually wear with Born - this is easy to fix by exchanging to a different size. The reason I am returning them is because the heel of the sole looks like it will easily get damaged. When I step on the foot, leather at the back is almost touching the ground - probably because they are so soft and flexible. If I was going to wear them inside only, I would keep the pair. For the price I want shoes that will last.

I'd also recommend: Clarks, Cole Haan

I was hoping to really like these but they do not feel comfortable to me at all. They feel really stiff and there's not enough height in the toe box. The toes seem to curve upward a bit (I've seen this in other ballet flats and it's always very uncomfortable for me). There's also very little padding in the sole. Unfortunately, I'll have to send these back.
