Good fit, well made. Color was correct. Stiff heel or rear of shoe makes it easy to get in and out of.

Bought this shoe because I was looking for a boat shoe that wasn't quite as yuppie as the Sperry Top-Siders. Am happy with my pick and like the style, shoe has more of a relaxed look than the Sperrys, and is extremely comfortable. As a female buying this shoe, however, they are quite roomy. I bought the smallest size available and they're still about a half size too long for me but hasn't affected performance/walking etc. Definitely order at least a size smaller than what you'd usually get and if that size doesn't work just use Zappos great exchange policy!

These shoes are incredibly comfortable. The sole is cushioned fabric. I planned on getting some blisters breaking these in, that has not happened. The leather on the inside of the sides and the heel is pretty soft. They do run a full size larger though than Nike, Adidas, etc. so buy them small.

I bought these shoes about two weeks ago. I have the blue pair, I wear them with shorts and pants. They are very comfortable and breaking them in was really easy and quick. I highly recommend and would consider buying other shoes from this brand.

I'm wearing the said shoe right now. I prefer the Sperry Brand of Top Siders normally but the Born Henri was available in the color I was looking for. The said shoe is comfortable and I have already received positive feedback and I tout Zappo whenever I can. I go to the U.S. twice a year for business and it is just great ordering a couple of pairs of boat shoes over the computer, of which I wear year round, and have them delivered just the way I ordered them in a day. Last year for the first time I ordered dress shoes and since have ordered an additional pair and I like the price and look and selection. Zappos in my book is #1 and I have probably ordered at least 15 pair of shoes in the last six years.

Brands I'd also recommend: Top Sider

These shoes are very comfortable. I think they are more comfortable than the typical boat shoe. The inside has a nice cushion feel. The leather seems high quality and is very soft. Overall, they look well made (stitching and materials). I think they are a bit wider than the Top Siders. Also, I had to get them a half size smaller than what I typically use. I usually buy 11, I had to exchange them to 10 1\/2. Now I have a nice snug feel and I like to use them without sox. Exchanging them was fast and simple with Zappos.

In most shoes, I wear a 14, but these 14s looked easily a site too big on my foot, which made them look kind of sloppy. Other than the fit, the shoe was great. Seems like very nice material and construction. I really like the blue color, and the inside sole of the shoe was very comfortable. I am sending back the 14's and ordered a pair of 13's to replace them.

Very comfortable. There is no issue in wearing without socks as the back heel material is very soft. Best boat shoe I've owned.

These have to be the most underrated boat shoes (Born is underrated in general). With side-by-side comparison it is quite obvious the quality is well beyond Sperry and other brands of similar price, even Allen Edmonds. The leather is substantial and very soft, and the insole doesn't fall apart in two seconds like with Top-Siders. I also like that the toe box is more toward the shape of an actual foot, as I often get annoyed with narrow toe boxes bothering my little toe.

I bought these for my picky father as a gift. He loves them! He said right out of the box they were very comfortable and he loves the colors! They also provide great arch support and are made with typical solid Born construction. So glad I ordered these!

I'm a fan of Born's, especially since I have wide feet. The toe box is wide and they're generally speaking comfortable. I found the Henri's to be the same, except for one MAJOR issue. After having the shoes for 3 weeks, the shoelace snapped. Granted, that shouldn't happen so soon, but with other shoes wouldn't have been a big deal. However, the way this shoe is constructed, the lace is woven into the shoe and attached at the back. So, there's no way for you to either replace the shoe lace OR thread it through to even it out. Thankfully Zappos exchanged them for me. Otherwise, the shoe would have been trashed. Which for a $100+ shoe is unacceptable. If you're going to buy this shoe, be careful about lace wear, and don't pull the laces too hard.
