The grey color is a great neutral and makes a stomping-around boot more interesting. There's a grey plaid lining which gives a nice effect if you flip the top down. This boot is also a good value. I had originally bought a pair of Frye boots for 2 times the price, but they were too masculine. This boot is a good balance. Born does tend to make their shoes a half size larger, but I still went with my regular 7.5 in case I want to wear thicker socks. Part of me wishes the front of the boot wasn't as wide, but it still looks good. The leather is a little scruffy, which Born says is intentional. I'm fine with it, but don't expect pristine leather.

Once again I have been disappointed when a pair of "grey" boots arrive. These are a weird taupe-ish/olive greenish/greyish color that is definitely not at all the lovely light grey that they appear to be in the photos on the website. Seems to be the case every time I order grey boots, and I've ordered several pairs over the last 2 years, none of which were a true grey. They are comfy, though, and I love the style. Nice shaft height. I may end up keeping them because even though they're not a true grey, it is a nice neutral of sorts that will go with anything. Thank you, Zappos, for the great service!

These boots are super-comfortable immediately, and have a really unique and awesome style. I have been stopped and asked about them by strangers several times. The leather is definitely on the thin side and even slightly water-proof. They are also not warm unless you wear wool socks, and the traction is terrible on ice. Considering all of that, I would still get them. You really can not beat Born if you're looking for a elusive combination of comfort and style.

Wonderful boots! Comfort and quality you would expect from Born. I ordered an 8.5, which is my usual size with Born. They fit perfectly and even have room for thicker socks. Some images & video look like the top of the shaft is wide and square, but they are easily tied up snug to fit your calf.

This product was not only amazing, it was the one thing that started the conversation that would into much more with my fiance and me. It is one of my favorite casual shoes that I have ever owned. If you are looking for style and comfort, look no further. You just found heaven in shoes.

I'd also recommend: Blowfish, Rocketdog, Emu, Uggs, and much much more!
