Better than Danskos! I tried on a ton of Danskos and the heel always slipped and the toe bed was tight even in the wide. The leather has some give which makes it very comfortable.

First of all - I have loved every pair of Born shoes I\'ve ever purchased, which is about 8 in the last 4 years. I purchased these in the tan color - and the leather has not held up well at all - easily scuffed, and discolored after only wearing them 3-4 times in regular conditions. Perhaps the darker colors are the way to go, but I was disappointed, and am in the process of returning them. Perhaps I just got a bad batch?

Love these shoes. I ordered size 8 (my normal size) and had to exchange for the 8.5. Wore them through a trade show (including setup & breakdown) for 8 days straight! Stood on my feet for about 14 hours a day and my feet just barely started to hurt towards the end of the last 3 days. But nothing compared to previous years. These were awesome! I have a really high arch...they definitely supported my arch more than other shoes do, but I would still love a shoe that had a little higher. I don't think I'll ever find one though unless it's custom made.

I'm very disappointed with this shoe! Can't even get it on my foot! I'm a size 7.5 or 8 M. Since this is a closed-back shoe, I ordered an 8 to be safe. This shoe is nowhere near an 8M in my experience. More like a 7N. Cannot get my foot into it. I have had several pair of Born shoes over the years, but none purchased recently. Seems like the both quality and "quantity" are being economized. I wouldn't know what size to guess at for an exchange (a 9?!!), so I am returning and heading to a store.

Best work shoe I have ever worn. Looks great with everything from dress pants to jeans. They are comfortable, supportive...I can walk in them all day long.

I'd also recommend: Finn Comfort, Mephisto

I really like Born, and the Toby style in particular. The main issue I have is that the sole starts to peel apart until the entire sole is the texture of a sponge and soaks up water and pulls it into the shoe. I had a teal pair that I bought at Nordstrom and I wore them almost daily. The sole started to peel away in strips until I had to get them totally resoled. Then I bought another pair in black, because I thought it might have been a fluke, and they are so comfortable. Alas, they are totally done. I can't even get them to dry out.

I'd also recommend: Bearpaw, Ahnu, Hush Puppies, Dansko

I am on my feet all day and take over 10,000 steps at work a day (my Fitbit tells me). I have thin bony feet and have worn Dansko for years, but I have to usually wear thick socks and band aids on my heels because they are so bony my heels slide around a lot. I wore these shoes all day today and my feet feel great! Thank you Zappos for all the great reviews to help me find new shoes!
