I love these boots! Very comfortable, as with most Born products. Also, I apparently have a wider calf, as I can't zip up most boots - and these boots have plenty of room to tuck in leggings and zip up comfortably! I will be wearing them all winter.

Not great: the leather feels cheap to me. Also, I've had luck with Born shoes before with my wide feet and high arches, but these are definitely not wide in the toe, and there's no arch support. They're going back.

These boots are so soft, they felt great right out of the box. Once I added my SuperFeet insoles, I had the arch support I needed for wearing all day and walking quite a bit.

These boots are both instantly comfortable and stylish. Soft leather, non-slippery sole, nice support for the foot. I am tempted to order another pair!

I liked these boots, and they fit well in the feet. They are about 1.5" too wide in the calves, though, and I don't think they look good because of that. I am returning them. Would not recommend if you have narrow calves.

I love born products, this is my 3rd pair of their boots. I agree with some other reviewers that the leather quality is not up to par with my first too pairs, its not as supple. They do have very good support, I can walk forever in them, wear them all day, etc. I got these about 2 weeks back and have been wearing them a few times a week. Today one of the buttons came off! It seems fixable, but for this price and this early into owning them I;m not terribly happy about this.

After spending hours looking for boots, I decided on these in brown and love them. I was so glad when they finally arrived and I wore them around the house for a few hours to break them in. I just sat down and noticed that the top little decorative button fell off and now a shiny piece of metal shows. It looks horrible and I can't wear them that way. I'm usually skeptical of people complaining in reviews, but it is making me wonder if this is a fluke or if I'm asking for trouble by keeping them. It has rave reviews everywhere, but several people did mention this problem. I'm not sure if I'll replace the pain I have or look for something else similar, but with nothing that can break off so easily?!

I read all the reviews and everyone said to order down and of course I didn't. Ordered up 1/2 size and they were way to long and wide. They are very pretty boots and I re-ordered my size, now hoping they will fit. Hope this helps anyone.

These boots are great, but fall apart quickly! I've had them a little over two months and already two of the covered buttons have fallen off of one of the boots. I've never had a problem with things coming off of my shoes (I usually keep shoes for many years). Now I'm left with boots that have two sharp, ugly metal nubs where the buttons should be. I'm very disappointed, because for the price they should have lasted much longer. I have e-mailed the company about the problem but received no response. Otherwise they are nice boots!

This is a great boot! I usually wear heels almost everywhere but I injured my leg recently and was looking for a flat boot that had good traction in the sole, was attractive enough to wear to work and out with friends, and also didn't make me feel dumpy (I'm 5'4"). This totally fit the bill! They are so comfortable and I love the button detail. They look great with skinny jeans and I also plan to pair them with skirts and dresses. I could have probably gone down a size but I didn't want to send them back and wait another couple days. I've never had a pair of born boots before and now I'm considering buying another born style in a different color.

I was excited to purchase these boots, but am very disappointed in the quality. The leather feels cheap, and there is a little damage that looks like the leather has been torn off. For this price I expected higher quality. The boots fit true to size. There isn't a whole lot of wiggle room in the calf, which is fine if you like a tighter fit. I was impressed, however with how quickly the boots arrived. I purchased them on a Wednesday with standard shipping, and they were here by Friday afternoon.

Returning because the calf is too wide for me. My calf at its widest is 13.5 to 13.75 inches, the boot at its widest is a little over 15 inches. This is enough to make the gap noticeable at the top.

Simple styling with a beautiful color and finish- this boot really hit all the right notes for me. It's casual, but still dressy at the same time. Incredibly comfortable, fits like a glove, and no issue about the calf being to tight or narrow (something that always seems to be a problem for me when shopping for tall boots.) If you are on the fence about these, get them! Somehow, miraculously, they got everything right on the fit and design of these!

I loved these boots for the first few months that I owned them. I am a kindergarten teacher and a mom of two boys and these just haven't held up. I have already lost a button, which is just not acceptable! Wish I had chosen another boot.

I wanted to love these boots, they actually look adorable, but as others have said the leather does seem incredibly thin and cheap. The style is very cute and they provide a nice snug fit around the ankle, but when I tried them on and walked around my home, the soles squeaked - loudly! My husband said to look up home remedies to help abate the sound, but these are not a pair of Target shoes, they sell for a lot and I do not want to risk it. I am sure people would think that it is the leather squeaking and not the soles, which are made out of rubber by the way. So, sadly, I had to return them.

This boot is very comfortable. No break in time. The style is versatile and I bought 2 pair I liked them so much. However, the Attila, which is a Born boot, has better arch support and feels a bit more substantial around the foot. I own both the Attila boot and the Born boot and I love both styles. I have had surgery on both feet, so I am particular which means these boots get an A+!

This would be a great boot for someone petite. It's fairly tailored and works with jeggings or knee length skirts. I have long legs (I'm 5'8"), and the height of the boot was too short for me.

Looked cheap...like rubber rain boots rather than a rich leather. The ankle area was baggy and didn't fit well at all! Bottom line: I promptly returned them.

These boots are very comfortable and fit my smaller calves and ankles. I did find that they were about a half size too big. I am usually an 8 and the 7.5 fits perfectly. I bought the charcoal colour, I wish they came in black too. I am on my feet all day and I find that there is some arch support, the sole is rubber and has good grip outside. The lining inside the boots is soft and comfortable. I live in a snowy wet winter climate, unfortunately these boots are not water proof and my feet do get cold wearing them outside in cold weather.

These boots are just what I was looking for! They are both casual and able to be dressed up. The only issue I have with them is that they have no cushioning or arch support at all. They are comfortable, just not supportive. I still will keep them and maybe just add in an arch support. Great boots! I've gotten many compliments.

Fabulously fashionable and comfortable. I get many compliments on them and my feet are happy. The color isn't a "true" black which makes these boots easy to wear with browns as well. A bit wide on me, but that leaves room for an extra pair of light socks to keep my feet warmer. A necessity when you live in a northern climate.

These boots are amazing! I ordered them on a whim, but am so glad that I did. They are incredibly comfortable and have good traction unlike many other pairs of "fashion" boots that I own. They're pretty true to size (I'm usually a 7 or 7-1/2) and the 7 fits well. I ordered the charcoal leather, which isn't too gray and can be passed off as a black boot. I'm very, very pleased with this purchase!
