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 the look but they were tighter than expected. Most Borns fit me perfectly. Hoping they will stretch a bit because they are a nice alternative to the Dansko/Sanita look.

This is my second pair of Born Toby shoes. They are by far the most comfy shoes I own. The leather is soft and the height of the heel is perfect if you have to stand for any length of time. I always get compliments on them whenever I wear them. Zappos has great prices too.

I just recently discovered the Born line of shoe wear. I have major issues with one foot. This shoe is light weight, looks great with jeans and I can work in it all day!

I bought these in the red shade. They are wonderful! I have been having trouble with a bunion and most shoes hit at the wrong spot. I even cut a pair of shoes to make them work. But these were great right out of the box!

I can't express how much I love these shoes. I am on my feet all day long and finding a nice shoe that looks good too isn't easy. This is by far my new favorite shoe & brand. Looks great with jeans. Fits good and my feet and legs don't kill me at the end of my shift. I can even walk to and from work in them and not hurt. Awesome product.

These shoes look great but unfortunately the size 7 is too tight on my big toes (without socks) and the size 7½ is way too loose (even with socks) so I must return them.

Great shoe. Good looking and very Comfortable. I wear a size 10 and they still don't look clunky. Only (small) problem is that I have a very high arch so I needed to stretch the top when I first got them. They are great now.

These appears to be a well made shoe and the shape refreshing compared to Danskos. However, the shoe was small for my standard size and is going back. Compared to my other shoes the sole was easily a 1/2" shorter.

I am so pleased with my purchase. This shoe was comfortable immediately out of the box. No breaking in time needed. It is a sturdy and good looking shoe that fits well. I will purchase again.

First time trying on a pair of Born shoes and I love them. Comfy from the get-go - no issues at all. Plenty of arch support, heel cushioning and ball-of-foot cushioning. Easy stride, stable sole and really cute shoe. I have a very weird foot with lots of problems including a very bent hammertoe - I've tried 14 pairs of orthopedic-ish but stylish shoes from Zappos (thanks for the free return shipping Zappos!) and these are the ones I'll keep. Nice roomy toe-box, but somehow they don't look wide and clunky. Great shoe.

Born shoes are a great feeling shoe. So comfortable and very stylish. With the "Toby" I had to order one half size up. They seem to run small.

I love it! When I first put them on, I thought they were kind of snug (I was wearing cotton socks, not hosiery), but upon walking in them, they are true to size. They are very comfortable with a nice cushiony padding. I find the styling simple, but contemporary. Now I'm going to order one for my daughter!

Love these Born shoes! So incredibly comfortable, great arch support, true to size, perfect fit! Took them out of the box and wore them all day with no problems whatsoever! This is my first pair of Born shoes and it definitely won't be the last. And as usual, phenomenal customer service on behalf of Zappos! Why would anyone shop anywhere else?

When I opened the box, the opening of the shoe looked very narrow and I didn't think my foot would fit in, but it was just crushed a little inward. Wearing them fixed the problem easily, and they are very comfortable.

Shoes arrived quickly and fit perfectly. I wanted something I could wear all day and be comfortable and the Toby fits the bill. I just wore them while Christmas shopping for ten hours and my feet felt great. Thanks, Zappos.

Really like the way the shoes feel. It is true, there is no break in period. I have large bunions on my feet and these are the first shoes that I purchased that allowed me to wear right out of the box. I will say that I'm between a 9.5 and a 10.0 and usually have to go with the ten. In this case, the shoe is slightly large in the heel. However, I would think that a 9.5 would be too tight. The heel does slip when I walk, but the shoe is so comfortable, that I plan to put an insole or stay in the bottom just to prevent the problem. Great shoes for Teachers or people that stay on their feet all day long. If you are walking someplace, notice the heel...it might become a little bothersome on long distances.

This style is comfortable, as I suffer from moderate back and joint problems. However, this shoe runs larger and wider than the norm. The brown color also seems to get darker in some areas of shoe after first wear, and shows scuffs easily. Inside of shoe is very comfortable, important since I can't wear socks or the shoe slips off (due to wide width). I love Zappos no hassle return policy.

I liked styling and seemed like they\'d be comfortable, if only they fit! I ordered my usual size 6 and I had enough room behind my heel to fit my thumb in the shoe. Since there\'s no option for a size 5, I\'m sending them back.
