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.

These boots look great with jeans or khakis - great for casual wear but not suitable for the office. They are rugged looking but not overly macho. I own quite a few Born shoes. Their last fits my foot perfectly - wide toe box and relatively narrower heel. Wearing these boots with athletic socks that are thicker than dress socks but not full-on hiking socks seems the most comfortable choice. I have not worn them enough to comment on arch support. They look rugged and may be good for trail hiking on a dry winter day but seem best suited for casual weekend wear. One note: compared to sneakers the boot does add more than an inch to your height. I am 5'8" and appreciate the assist.

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 this boot, don't get me wrong on the scoring. The fit great and look great. The downfall is the sole. The sole on my boots wore through in under a year. The rest of the boot is still in excellent condition. I'm very happy with the brand and gave even purchased other born shoes. Just can't wrap my head around the early wear of the sole...

These shoes are great! comfortable right out of the box, I've been wearing them to the office 2 or 3 times a week since I bought them 9 months ago and the still look and feel as good as the day I first wore them. I have 3 other pairs of Born shoes and love those shoes just as much.

These are great shoes. I wear them for 10-12hour days in the hospital and they have incredible comfort all day long. I like Born's unique support cushion system throughout the entire sole of the shoe. I will not hesitate to purchase a replacement pair or other style Born shoe.

My foot is a 13.5 measured and I typically wear shoes in the 13-14 range, depending upon the shoe. I bought the 13 and they fit perfect, I even added a Superfeet (Green) insole for additional arch support and I still have room. I purchased the Brown and they are true to color. There aren't too many Cons to this shoe, I find it quite comfortable and it's a perfect shoe for jeans or khaki's but. It's not waterproof and the leather gets dry pretty fast so it would benefit you by doing some occasional leather conditioning. Other than that, it's a value.

I have been wearing these boots on an almost daily basis for two years now and still love them. The only thing that I have had to replace are the laces but it is finally time for a resole. I get compliments on them all the time. I went with my regular shoe size when ordering these and had no problem with the fit. These boots will show marks as there is no coating on the leather. I think it adds to the character but if that is something that bothers you you can hit them with a little mink oil although this will darken them. I occasionally apply a little dark brown shoe polish to the toe area to keep them looking how they do in the picture. Not much in the way of arch support but I do not know many boots that are great at this. All in all, a great purchase.

Had the shoes in less than 24hrs. Good fit. The color wasn't what I expected, kind of a "distressed" look, so I simply polished them. Good job as always Zappos!

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.
