This shoe is amazing. They honestly just look and feel great. As far as size goes, it seems like the shoe is a little larger than normal, but at the same time, a bit narrower in the toe area. I would definitely recommend it though.

Absolutely beautiful shoes. Top quality materials and workmanship. Unfortunately, my toes were squished and they were too loose in the heel. I've owned several pairs of Borns in clogs and sandals with absolutely no problem, but for some reason these just didn't fit right.

These are the most comfortable flats that I have ever tried on. I was looking for a beautiful professional looking flat for an upcoming pharmacy school interview. These shoes are exactly what I was looking for. The arch support makes the shoes feel great to walk in. I also wear a size 10 shoe so it's not very easy to find flats that don't make my feet look like boats! These even look great in a size 10. If you're undecided about these shoes, just go ahead and get them. You won't regret it.

I love these shoes. I was looking for comfortable work shoes and these fit the bill. They are a little dressy but very comfortable. I found them true to size with room for my toes.

Just got these,but unfortunately am returning them. Born shoes usually fit me like a glove, but these seem short in the toe area, probably because the toes are more pointed than usual for Born shoes. Also the color blue not what I was looking for -- more grey than blue.

I am so very pleased with my new shoes. In the past I have had a hard time finding flat shoes that are comfortable and these really fit the bill. The fact that they come in a 10.5 is fantastic and made it possible for me to enjoy a new look.

I love my Liddy's. Depending on the shoe I wear a 8 or 8.5. I ordered the size 8 and it fits perfectly. I love the style. Flats can be so fuddy-duddy but these are cute! I think I have found a new footwear line to add to my favorites. I haven't worn them much yet, but they also seem super comfy.

One of the best flats I've ever owned. There is plenty of arch support, really comfortable, so cute, can be worn with a nice business suit or an evening out. I got the Velino Metallic, which is a very nice color, can be paired with many different things. They do run slightly large (as do most Born shoes, in my experience), but I got my normal size and put some Foot Petals Heavenly Heels in and they're a perfect fit. A great staple shoe for your collection.

I love that like all born shoes I have had, they fit with no break in! They are comfortable from day one. I bought these in black, and agree with other reviews that the slightly pointed toe is more stylish that the snub toe (with size 9½ feet I am grateful for anything that makes my feet look elegant rather than gigundo). The padding is nice and gives good support for a flat. I can even run in these (run for bus, not run track, but still). One tiny thing, though: because the toe is pointed, they are already slightly scuffed along the front edge, because the edge of the shoe makes contact with the ground before the slightly recessed sole does. There is not quite enough shoe to hit the ground running. At any rate, the price was reasonable, they use good materials and I love them. Plus Zappos great service.

These flats are adorable! I tend to like sophisticated, slightly edgy shoes. Hard to find in flats, which tend to look a little conservative. But these are adorable, sophisticated and neither edgy nor conservative -- they're right down the middle. The folded leather around the toe is just lovely. Color is beautiful, rich, and unique. These are very special. And comfortable!!!! However, I'm a solid 9, ordered that, and find it too small. Have ordered the 10 and will pick the best of the two. Either way, these shoes are mine, mine, mine!!!!!

Cute shoes! The blue is subtle, more like a grey blue with a hint of lavender. The style is forgiving for wide feet like mine. I have 3 different styles of Born ballet flats, and love all three.

I really need some additional office shoes that are comfortable and go with a wide range of outfits. The Liddy in taupe will do really well for this. The Liddy seems to be a stiffer version of Adele (which I have). The Adele is more flexible, and unfortunately, it shows after a year of wear. These Liddy shoes should hold up to wear a little better, as well as having a more professional appearance. I am glad that I got the 9½ rather than the 9, as the more pointed toe leaves less room for the foot. The neutral color should work well for spring/summer.

These shoes are slightly darker in color than I had hoped (based on the product picture). Also, I normally wear a 9 1/2; I ordered a 10 and they are still a bit snug. Go up a full size when ordering.

These shoes are super cute, but the toe box is just too small! I walked around my house for a day trying to convince myself that they would work, because the width is pretty good and they are a great color and style, but I can't ignore my crunched up toes! Too bad, they are perfect otherwise. I will be returning them.

I loved these shoes. They were so cute! I was so sad when I had to return them. I am on my feet eight hours a day due to a retail job, and the narrowness in the toe area was killing me every day. They are soft and flat; exactly as the picture suggests. I would recommend them if you are looking for a cute pair of flats to wear around town, but not if you are looking for everyday shoes. The top is very narrow. When I was wearing them, they would leave a huge red mark on my pinkie toes. And you can forget about wearing them with anything thicker than sheer tights.

I loved these and I have another pair of Born shoes that fit really well so I purchased these. I first got a size 9 and it felt like my toes were crammed in. Then I got a 9½ and it still felt like my toes were crammed but they were gaping in the sides when I walked and flopping a bit. I could not keep them on my feet for more than an hour before my feet were in too much pain to continue wearing them. My feet are average width and I usually wear a size 9. Bummer. I loved the metallic finish.

These flats are comfortable and true to size (I wear a 7.5 and have a slightly narrow foot). I also have the Adele flats, which I love and can wear all day walking in the mall. The Liddy has a more pointed toe, which looks dressier with skirts, but is not quite as comfortable as the Adele, but they are still great! Very nice neutral color. My heel slipped a little, but was resolved with heel grips.

These shoes look great with jeans & dress pants. They are not the most comfortable shoe. Zappos is the best place to shop on line. The shoes were delivered the next day.

I love these shoes. I am a true 10.5, which is almost impossible to find...these fit like a glove. They are extremely comfortable and didn't require any breaking in. I don't know that I'd wear them for a full day of walking, but I've worn them for a few hours of shopping with no problems. I'm seriously considering getting more colors (something I almost never do).

Super comfortable. Finally a flat with arch support. The slight point gets a little bent where my toes hit. I'd recommend a round toe versus the pointy toe. But, super duper comfy.

Born is my new favorite brand. This is the second pair of shoes i've ordered from this company and once again, it was "straight out of the box" comfortable. They truly feel like a slipper. Great support, much better than most flats and the leather is so soft and supple, there's absolutely no breaking in required! I ordered my standard 9.5 in a medium width and they fit perfectly. I would say that my feet are a tad wide, not enough to order a wide width, so if your feet run narrow you might even get away with a half size smaller. Great shoe, very attractive too with either a skirt or pants. Absolutely worth every penny for a shoe that doesn't pinch, rub, or otherwise cause discomfort. Love them!
