Boots - Nice low ankle boots. Soft leather with a rubber sole that helps with grip, but there's still that boot sound when you hit the floor although it's a little muffled. Very comfortable. I got it for fall and just started walking around in them. The quality is nice. I'm interested to see how long they'll last with everyday use through the winter.

Perfectly good shoe, but not quite what I thought it was. Definitely more of a matt/nubuck leather, and toe is more rounded than it appears. I was looking for an edgier looking boot to wear with jeans and dress pants, this is basically a nice desert boot.

Very well built shoe. Dress or casual. True to size. Had them 1.5 years and I am getting another pair soon.

Excellent shoe - Very stylish and comfortable and looks great with jeans. Only concern is that the shoe is at least a half size too big compared to what I'm used to and because the leather is so soft, I worry that it will stretch and make it even bigger. Nevertheless, I've received several compliments on them...

Great boot!! Once again Zappos out does itself in service! I ordered these boots at 8 pm and received them at 10 am the next morning! The boots are a good fit, very comfortable right out of the box. The style will not be out dated and looks good with jeans or chinos!

They have a \'salt of the earth\' look to them. Rather cool and hip looking. On a scale of 1-10 I would give them a 9 for comfort. The only negative is that they don\'t breathe all that well.

I am a big fan of Born shoes. Not always the styling but the fit and their lasting wear. These boots make me happy on both accounts. They\'re comfortable out of the box with a classic 1930\'s simplicity.

Great looking boot. Extremely soft leather. Feel and look "broken in" right out of the box. The only thing I'm concerned about is how long they will hold up as they feel kind of light and cheap for a boot. They are definitely built to look good, not to wear for outdoor activities. They look great though.

I love these shoes but unfortunately I listened to the reviews that suggested ordering 1/2 size small. I would say they are true-to-size based on my experience. I also feel that they are quite narrow but know that they would relax with time.

I have owned this boot for probably ten years and just ordered another pair. My favorite shoe, obviously holds up well. It will scuff, but only adds to the charm. Still get compliments on the old pair.

I picked these out for my husband. Not only did he like the look of them but so did our 18 year old daughter. He says they are pretty comfortable (nothing is really comfortable for him due to all his feet & ankle problems) and can be worn with jeans or khaki pants.

I love these boots. The sizing runs big and they stretch more than most of my leather shoes do. I normally wear a 12, ordered an 11.5 and ended up exchanging them for an 11.

These boots are great. Born shoes seem to fit my foot, which is slightly wide but not enough to start going with the wide sizing, well. I find the boots stylish enough for strolling in the city, & rugged enough to walk on muddy country roads or even trails.

Needed a few walks to break in, once break in the shoes mold to your feet. However, it does get hot in there if over 85 degree out. The decorative wood trim on the hill does not hold up, mine have cracked after only 6 times wear.

This is my second pair of Born Harrisons. I like these shoes. As with my first pair, they definitely started a bit snug. I usually wear EE shoes whenever possible, so a D width shoe is usually at least a bit snug. The leather is quite supple, so I fully expect these shoes to fit quite nicely after a day or so worth of walking. The shoes seemed fairly true to size, if a bit small. Overall, I woulld certainly buy these again.

Love these shoes. Great look and are holding up well going on year two. But in most other brands I wear a 12 or 12.5 these an 11.5 is just a little big but comfy.

Great shoes, my only complaint is that the arch support is rather lacking. I walk quite a bit in my daily life and it took some time for my feet to get used to these shoes in that regard. Other than that they are top-notch. My first pair of Born shoes, and certainly not my last. If you do lots of walking, I'd invest in a padded insole.

My husband loves these boots. We had to order 1 size smaller. His foot is narrow and the boots fit him better than any shoes he has had and are very comfortable! They go both with dress and casual wear.

Very comfortable shoe and more importantly great arc support and super cozy insole. I really liked these shoes. The only downside that I can think of is that these are a bit heavy and also they are not waterproof.

This is my 3rd pair of Born shoes and I love every pair. The quality of the leather is always great and within a week they wear like they have been on your feet for years. Color on these was a little dustier than from the picture - not quite chestnut.

I bought these reluctantly as I am not am online shoe shopper, but free shipping and the fact that my wife is a big Zappos fan made me take the leap. They are a perfect fit, are quite comfortable and pair well with slacks or jeans.
