Great shoes, were delivered on time, and in good order. These are true to size, although they may take a couple months to stretch out a bit. This is second pair of these I have owned, and loved my first pair since they lasted a long time. Great construction.

These shoes are true to size and they are comfortable. The leather is so-so quality. The craftsmanship is shoddy, and that is unacceptable to my husband. These are going back.

Great for casual wear. I wear them with jeans or cords. Maybe a little too casual for khakis but you may disagree.

I was hesitant in purchasing the Born Hutchins. I normally choose Clarks first. They can be substituted for Clarks. Wish I had more grip on the soles.

I have had foot pain for years and have tried many different shoes with little to no help. A friend told me about Born Shoes last week when I was shopping for new shoes. I bought a pair that day. today is my seventh day at work wearing them and my foot pain is gone. I'm sold.

Felt great as soon as I put them on. Zappos is an excellent site to order from. Great price, quick shipping, couldn't be happier. This is where I'm buying my shoes from now on.

Really like the shoe. Looks great and is comfortable. Seems to be true to size. Only slight negative is that it tends to scuff a little easily - not a huge deal, though.

My husband does not like to shop, so getting shoes delivered to the house was great. Zappos customer service is second to none! The shoes by the way were a big hit and my husband said they are really comfortable. He wore them for 7 hours walking around the first day he wore them. Love Zappos!

Well made, sturdy, comfortable. On long walks the side height rubs on the inside. Very roomy toe box adds to comfort.

Pleased overall, this is a comfortable pair of shoes, at a fair price. They're sturdy and wide at the toes, which helps to alleviate some of my foot pain. I wear them with jeans and khakis.

I like the Born Brand. I have two other pairs. These rubbed my heel raw and had to use band-aids and mole skin to take away discomfort. These are not as good as I hoped.

Borns have always had a good fit despite my narrow feet. The lacing on these allows me to snug them up as needed. Couldn't fit in my orthotics and could do with a bit more arch support but all in all a good shoe to wear at work - lots of walking and standing. Want them in black but my size isn't available at the moment.

I bought the Born Hutchins II for my 12 year old son for school last year. He raves about how comfortable this shoe is! He claims they are more comfortable than his tennis shoes! And, they are so well constructed that the only reason I have to buy a new pair for this school year is that he outgrew the old ones! The old pair is still in excellent condition, even though he wore them every day, including outside for recess where he played kickball! As far as the price goes, the big named department store that starts with a "D" sells this exact same shoe for more (not to mention that you would have to pay tax). Take my word, you won't go wrong with this shoe. Buying from Zappos couldn't be easier; place your order today and the shoes will be at your doorstep tomorrow! Zappos saves me gas, time, and money! Thanks!

These provide excellent arch support. that is great because fitting orthopedic insoles inside dress shoes is often hard to do. They are very pretty shoes that feel amazing both inside and out. These are also very comfortable! Aside from the fact that I had a little trouble getting the right size, I am definitely recommending them to others.

I've been wearing these for about two months. I spend many days on my feet, so comfortable shoes are critical to me. These are probably the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned and I tell people about them all the time.

Yes this is the best brand of shoes (Born) I have ever worn. This is my third pair of Hutchins 1 and 2 I wore the first pair I had for 4 years every day for work. I had knee problems and when went to Dr he said I believe it is time to retire your Born shoes for a new pair. They are very good shoes. Require no break in time. Marvin Long Hutchinson Ks

I ordered these shoes for my husband in brown... he liked them so much I ordered them in black! Born offers outstanding comfort in a style that looks great with jeans or khakis. These shoes feel great right out of the box. Zappos provided excellent service (as always) and crazy quick delivery! Go ahead and order them today... your feet will thank you!

I love this shoe. Born has produced this shoe off and on over the years with different names, but the style and comfort has remained the same. The things I love and the wide toe is very comfortable. It works perfect for business casual. The sole is also very comfortable and I have worn them traveling with no problems.

Look great...feel great! No break-in time needed; comfortable right out of the box. Even after a twelve-thirteen hour day, these shoes live up to the Born standards of great comfort and style. I am a loyal Zappos customer; their service is outstanding. I had these shoes the next day, it seemed like within just hours!

Extremely comfortable shoes. These are my second pair of Hutchins. Unfortunately they seem to wear out quickly. A good alternative to Clarks.
